75 Years Ago...


The moment is one of the most iconic in American gangster folklore.

Exactly 75 years ago today, at 9.15am on May 23, 1934, two small-time Depression-era bank robbers named Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow died on a lonely road outside Gibsland, Louisiana.

Hi Wagga!
I'm just wasting time on the intertubz before heading to the airport - then I'll probably be offline until Monday.

She's tiny.So was Clyde (maybe that's what I love about them):
For a start, Bonnie was barely 4ft 11in tall and weighed just over 6 and a half stone, while Clyde was only 5ft 3in and a little over eight stone.

Step aside clyde, edgar's hot for bonnie.

A Stone is 14 pounds. Here are the conversions to proper units:

6 1/2 Stone = 41.4 Kilos
8 Stone 2 = 51.8 Kilos.

Hi Guyz,
I was so exhausted when I arrived home early yesterday AM (can you believe we were stuck in the plane because the damn door wouldn't open?) that I slept in until 5PM - and I still feel tired! I think I may have slept too much. Now my sleeping cycle is so screwed up I think I might need a nap.

Isn't that the original Eurythmics video?

Hi Akubi,,,

Very glad that you back!

Akira said...

Thanks, Kitty!

Anything new in the intertubz that I missed out on?

Kitty said...

No not too much...

I'm going to Tumblr Anonymous though... it was getting out of control... it really helps to have safe place to talk about it...
