I've seen quite a few of these "fixed" historical videos and I have to admit that they are definitely more interesting to watch when they've been given a little love but there's still something a bit off about the movement. I guess it's a framerate thing or something. I haven't really looked into the exact reasons for it.

'nobody wants to say hello' lool.

'She looks more approachable which is not really what you want with a furby'

true. I too wanted to make some spider furby chimeras but like with realistic spider movements like those spider robots but they are too expensive.

the only way to end a furby christening is to be escorted off of the government property you broke into

Magnificent. Someone came across this lost portrait of Dickens at an auction in Sth Africa and probably bought it for peanuts.

Haunting...

Huh that's really weird to see. 'Lost' heh. I found another video of this clip with a Russian person talking about war crimes and I couldn't understand it but I realised what they were getting at because of some of the English comments like it was during the period where lots of Germans were chucked out of areas and were made homeless and most women were raped. I don't know all the details now but my nan was in a similar situation at the time (I'm not sure if she was raped, certainly threatened at least with that. Think maybe one or more of her sister's was,) because she became stateless after the war because she lived in a German occupied area of Poland (Danzig,) so the soviets came in after the war and the entire German speaking population was expelled to be replaced with ethnic Polish people, and it was often members of the armed forces who were raping random women (as with every war they do this, and then they pretend to be 'the good guys' if they win) though her family background is supposedly Swedish/Russian and she tried to go to Sweden but the ship she was supposed to go on sunk or something something went wrong with that. She did stay undercover with a couple of soviet soldiers at one point while stateless though (and I guess she would have been around the same age as that girl because she was 18 when the war ended and the person in this video looks like they're a teenager.)

edit: Apparently she was older actually although I think her identity is still disputed apparently people think she's Lara Bauer born in 1921.

Yeah. I don't know how accurate the title or description of that video was but just stumbled on it when looking for "restored" historical footage and was kind of not ready to see something like that. Just kind of bothers me that it really wasn't all that long ago but those people went through unimaginable things. Which I know stuff still goes on in some places but I guess we're so insulated from it in countries like the US that it really seems like people have forgotten.

Yeah it's very surreal to me too well my nan passed away in December of last year, but she sometimes talked about some of the crazy stuff that happened so it's not that far removed at all for people many people alive today have family members they knew well who experienced it first hand. Someone once told her that she should write a book especially as that side of things isn't talked about much in Western countries obviously but she didn't.

I would think this is true in the US too though even though there were less civilians effected, since many people fled there during and after the war, and also people who have family members who were soldiers also would have seen a lot.
