We'd have to define atheism as a religion first, and to do that we'd have to define theism as a religion, and then suddenly there is no color distinction between Jewish, Muslim, Hindu, Baha'i, or for that matter Christianity.

I love the way people dressed back then. Even the likely homeless guy who broke into a house to steal clothes is better dressed than I usually am.

So if you're lonely
You know I'm here waiting for you
I'm just a crosshair
I'm just a shot away from you
And if you leave here
You leave me broken, shattered, I lie
I'm just a crosshair
I'm just a shot, then we can die


And then World War I happened.
Archduke Franz Ferdinand was taken out 100 years ago today.

For an effective glimpse into the incompetent war machine that took in idealistic youths and spit out corpses at a rate totally unprecedented and previously unimaginable in all of human experience, check out the ongoing Hardcore History podcast's focus episodes on the lead-up, planning, execution, and unfolding horror of the war. So far, 3 episodes have been dedicated to this under the title Blueprint for Armageddon.
It doesn't focus on tactics and movements of this or that company over every battlefield of the war, like a History Channel gun porno for armchair field marshals (though it does cover a few of the bigger strategic pushes and occasionally bring the focus in on individual units for examination). Instead it opts for an overview of the psychology, major events, and the military experience at every level, trying to express the context in terms of cultural feedstock/impacts in ways that we today can try to understand. It doesn't glorify military accomplishments and gold-plate the tragedies, in fact if anything the overwhelming signal is that wars like this are a complete failure of human interaction.
