Looking east from the Wells St. Bridge, 1932, Chicago
Not quite fair as the telephotographic magnification level from the first photo is greater than second (compare the relative sizes of the capitols atop bridge anchors for the next street [Lasalle?]). Not only is the built environment more dense in the present day, but we can see more of it. Comparing the absolute amount of change that took place between these two photographs is difficult. You can see the Carbide and Carbon Building in both photos. The first photo has it looming large enough in the back row. The second photo has it as a sliver where the perspective line created by the right bank of the river meets a kind of wall of buildings at the bend in the river.

A Voice for Men, a men’s rights site that is most notable for being featured as a hate site by the Southern Poverty Law Center, is currently hosting a conference on men’s issues in Detroit.
The images above are direct quotes of what some of the speakers at this men’s rights conference have said.
Sit back and marvel at the newest human rights movement.
Thanks to both David Futrelle at We Hunted The Mammoth for the excellent article that inspired this post and whey_ over at the againstmensrights subreddit for making the above images.
Please share this post far and wide so everyone knows exactly what men’s rights activists believe!
That’s actually one of the tamer Warren Farrell quotes. He actually said that incest victims enjoy it.
And not for nothing, but Karen Straughan was “awakened” to misandry when her son’s school put him in the remedial class when she KNEW he was a genius.
And Erin Pizzey thinks the FBI is run by feminists who also shot her dog.
Reblogging again for that last comment.
I am going to find out whether these people exist.
Admirers of Ayn Rand and dullards need not apply.
I love creative people, I write, and always have two notebooks on me almost all the time. I’m thinking always, and I’m repeatedly grabbing for those notebooks.
I dropped out of grad school to open a whiskey distillery. I studied sub-Saharan African Political Economy before.
Museums help me feel clean. You too? Say, “Hi.”
Don’t like male entitlement? Who does?
poppin-fresh said: Number 2 is Barcelona - the church towards the centre-left is the Sagrada Família. Also, I did some digging around with Tineye and an article on some aggregator thing I've never heard of seems to have most (all?) of these photos with the locations attached (but naturally no attributions) sneakhypedotcom/art/2014/04/20-famous-place-around-world-seendothtml
You’re wonderful for answering. Thank you.
I am a little embarrassed that I did not recognize Barcelona. I haven’t been, but I’d like to think that if the resolution on the Sagrada Família had been higher… Oh well. Not getting stymied the second time is all the more rewarding for having faltered once before.
Help me figure these out:
1) New York
3)Rio de Janeiro
6)Somewhere in The Netherlands
10)Tokyo? (I don’t have enough landmarks for me to be certain, and those large mountains seem too multitudinous to be home to a singular sentinel like Fuji.)
I am really curious. Please help me.
