On my days off, one of my favorite things to do is to create new DIY beauty recipes! I usually make myself a smoothie and then mix random foodie ingredients together and slather them all over… it’s fun! My skin is always glowing and healthy looking afterwards!
It keeps your bones aligned to prevent injury, compresses soft tissue to make the fist more rigid, and pads the knuckles. Skull bones are sturdier than hand bones, and even if you know what you’re doing there’s a high risk of damaging your metacarpals if you punch someone barehanded. It’s why they recommend if you find yourself in a fight unprepared to bunt their nose with the butt of your palm, because if the other person tucks their head and you end up hitting their forehead instead it’ll do a lot less damage to your palm than your knuckles.
On Sep 13, 1944, a princess from India lay dead at Dachau concentration camp. She had been tortured by the Nazis, then shot in the head. Her name was Noor Inayat Khan. The Germans knew her only as Nora Baker, a British spy who had gone into occupied France using the code name Madeline. She carried her transmitter from safe house to safe house with the Gestapo trailing her, providing communications for her Resistance unit.
Oh my God, yes. Let’s talk about Noor Inayat Khan.
Wireless operators in France had a life expectancy of six weeks. Noor was actively transmitting for over three times as long.
While she was in France, every other wireless operator in her network was slowly picked off until she was the last radio link between London and Paris. It was “the most dangerous and important post in France”.
She was offered a way back to Britain and refused.
In fact, in her transmissions to London, she once said that she was having the time of her life, and thanked them for giving her the opportunity to do this.
She was captured by the Gestapo, but never gave up: she made three attempt escapes. One involved asking to take a bath, insisting on being allowed to close the door to preserve her modesty, and then clambering onto the roof of the Gestapo HQ in Paris.
This space suit was first seen in Doctor Who in the 1960’s, though very possibly originated earlier, along with similar space suits that have also been seen on the show along side it. It was seen on Earl Cameron as Glynn Williams in the episode the Doctor Who episode The Tenth Planet, and then eventually found its way into The Empire Strikes Back, on the Trandoshan Bounty Hunter, Bossk. Since filming for Star Wars took place partly in England, it was likely hired out from the same costume house that provided the suits to Doctor Who fourteen years earlier. A close inspection of the detailing on the costume reveals them to be the same.
