Here's a nice little piece of Bolshevik  propaganda  (Decrees of the Soviet Government (Moscow: Institute of Marxism-Leninism, 1957), Vol. I, pp. 335-336.) describing the 'Dissolution of the Constituent Assembly', Jan 19, 1918.

Good find. Funny how history repeats, or at least rhymes as Twain was claimed to have written.
Possible opening remarks of the new Congress: "the old bourgeois parliament has outlived its usefulness"

Let's hope not.  ;)

German Unterseebooten SM UB-22 bites the dust in a Limey mine field.
I'm having a hell of a time trying to find anything that isn't from a wiki.   :(
(Wikis can be changed by anyone, in effect, rewriting history.)

I finally found some info that didn't come from a Fricki' wiki.    ;D
Where else, but on uboat.net - an excellent site BTW if you're into the U-Boats, from both wars.

Sad that the sub was destroyed over two months past the ending of the war.  Nice link, thanks, Logan.  But you know, I refer to Wikipedia quite often because it is handy in a Reader's Digest sort of way, haha.  Wikipedia does have a fairly detailed account of the SM UB-22 U-boat: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SM_UB-22  Are all the facts and figures correct in the article?  I don't know, but it does look as if someone who made the entry had access to books on naval history and or specialized records of German U-boats during WWI.

Oh, don't get me wrong, Wiki's are great as a starting point for research, but, although generally factual, you're not allowed to use them as a cite in colleges or tech schools for a reason.   ;)

It was odd yesterday when I was searching. All i got was references to wiki's - nothing else.
I think Smoogles AI was indirectly messing with me. (I avoid google, but some of the meta-search engines pull results from them.) I was using different search engines and querries. I had to close the browser, kill the connection, bleachbit, clear the clipboard, and refire the browser before I got a decent result from an extremely tangential query. It was like there was something about that boat, or that series of U-Boats that someone was trying to be hide.
When oddities like that happen, I immediately suspect interference. Or maybe one of the XKeyScore operators was bored yesterday - lol.  ;)  ;D

Okay - for today we have:
Two Royal Irish Constabulary officers were killed in an ambush at Soloheadbeg in Tipperary, Ireland, igniting the Anglo-Irish War.

Seattle Metal Trades Council went on strike, leading to a citywide general strike two weeks later.

BTW - I used Wikipedia to find the events, and then went out looking for sources.     ( <-- oh, another UB lost today too.)     ;)

I was scanning up to read the last post that I had missed, and I thought the headline read "Groypers will be welcomed by adherents."  Scary times.  ;)

Thanks for saying, Starr.  Plus we should thank Lee for providing the platform to display it.  Also a big thanks to pyewacket for the idea of starting it in the first place.  It's a fun hobby of sorts, and I'm glad that you like it.

Though I rarely post, I LOVE reading the posts, yours in particular.  Thank you, for keeping it alive and vital.
Well done, Rix Gins! :-*
