Gallery: War Memorial Displays
they also had a lot of war weapons, just like the ones from the movies. unlike on TV though they're not fun or cool. these things were actually used to kill people...
apart from their use in films, i don't get why people need to use weapons to kill one another. now i'm not saying i'm against killing. as a carnivore i understand the need to kill things. just not unless you have too. in that case you use your teeth and claws... okay well i guess humans don't have those... but to use killing weapons on one another?
we tyrannosaurs occasionally fought with one or another, but not with the sole intent of killing one another. rather it was for things like food, territory, or girls (or boys i guess if you were a girl t-rex), but if during these fights one of us got killed it was an accident.
humans on the other hand seem to go out of their way to use their big brains to find new ones to snuff each other out... such a waste.
as though to reinforce the idea that humans often need enemies i found the zeroes nemesis on the other side of the third floor. a spitfire... though i think the name was a bit silly. it spat bullets, but not fire.
it was neat though that the museum had acquired these two enemies. keeping them together as per their historic function.
the whole floor wasn't about celebrating war though. it was about remembering the horror of it, and hopefully getting people to prevent it. i liked the museums premise of showing people that war was bad. hence the war memoir.
more of the galleries soon
