[Painting of Death as a spectral nanny taking a child and infant away from their bereaved family.  A detail shows the family’s house number is 1918.]

I never realized this until seeing the detail, but this painting is most likely about the flu pandemic.

"Images of Saint Just re-created in Japanese girls comics" (source)

I wonder if we can identify them all? The source has a page on it, but all the text is showing up as gibberish/random letters for me. 
I know ‘B’ is from Rose of Versailles
and ‘F’ is from Oniisama e…
'A' looks like it's fromThérésa
What about the others?

E is gorgeous!

Okay so:
B is Rose of Versailles
C is Mariberu
F is Oniisama e…
I can’t identify A, D, or E. The remaining mangas on that page are:

1) 静粛に、天才只今勉強中! (google translate says— “Quietly, genius now studying!”) by Osamu Hashimoto
2) 銀弓神 (google translate says— “Silver Bow God) by Belne
3) サン・ジュスト幻想 (google translate says— “Saint-Just Fantastic) by Keiko Hasegawa
I’m hoping to figure out which one of these is E, since E is so beautiful!

I never thought I’d say this, but after reviewing my Internet activities from 4 years ago, I’m thoroughly ashamed of myself. The more notable of these activities includes impersonating a lesbian who was 5 years my senior… and unwittingly engaging in FB status sexting. In my defense, I was 11 and innuendo such as “makes sweet Fire Nation love to your body” COMPLETELY FLEW OVER MY HEAD, JESUS CHRIST.

During the reigns of the first three Georges, law enacted death upon what seemed a limitless variety of human deeds, from infanticide to ‘impersonating an Egyptian’ (posing as a gypsy). Between the enthronement of Charles II in 1660 and the middle of George IV’s reign in 1819, 183 new capital statues became law - nearly six times as many had been enacted in the previous three hundred years. Nearly all were drafted to protect property, rather than human life; attempted murder was classed only as a ‘misdemeanor’ until 1803. These grapeshot laws scattered death impartially. Why must forgers hang? Because the increase of paper transactions in 18th-century banking and business - checks, notes, bonds, shares, as distinct from concrete transfer of bags of gold - had made property of all sorts more vulnerable to forgery. Why was it death to ‘steal a heiress’? Because, like a queen bee swollen with jelly, an heiress was property incarnate; her abductor went to the gallows not for rape but for his theft of a family’s accumulated goods and rights.

Why was George W. Bush a bad President but Barack Obama is a good one? To liberals, George W. Bush was the Devil incarnate. Their biggest beefs were the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, the bank bailout, and Guantanamo Bay torture. When Obama took office he escalated the war in Afghanistan, gave even bigger bailouts, and after 5 years in office still hasn’t closed Guantanamo Bay. On top of that, Obama ignores the Constitution, spies on every single American, kills women and children with drone strikes, and has saddled the country with a health care law that will bankrupt the middle class and require an insurance company bailout of epic proportions. I’d say, even to liberals, Bush Jr. looks pretty good by comparison.

Because he focuses on “social justice” and it keeps libs happy, so they don’t want to criticize him in other areas like the economy or foreign policy or privacy.

17 July 1918 - Nicholas II and his family along faithful servants are murdered by the Bolsheviks

' A year shall come for Russia of dread things
When in the dust shall fall the crown of kings.
The mob shall loathe what once they loved,
While blood and death
Shall be the people’s daily bread.

Wow I like weird fruits and I have only heard of three of these before. Only actually tried one-the kiwano melon. I eat those regularly.

I made the mistake once of trying the African cucumber.  It, uh.  Tastes like cucumber.  Yeah.

Kiwano is absolutely delicious wtf you talking about

DON’T FORGET THE LAU LAU (rose apple), WHICH HAS A TEXTURE OF A PEAR, BUT FUCKING TASTES LIKE A ROSE SMELLS

Blew my fucking mind when I tried one. 

I grew up eating things like rambutan and lychee (the benefits of a tropical colonial upbringing) so I was surprised when I saw fruit on this list I had never heard of. Wonder if I can find some at the Chinese grocery store up the way…
