A representation of the 1506 Jewish Massacre in Lisbon
The Lisbon Massacre, alternatively known as the Lisbon Pogrom or the 1506 Easter Slaughter was an incident in April, 1506, in Lisbon, Portugal in which a crowd of Catholics, as well as foreign sailors who were anchored in the Tagus, persecuted, tortured, killed, and burnt at the stake hundreds of people who were accused of being Jews and, thus, guilty of deicide and heresy. This incident took place thirty years before the establishment of the Inquisition in Portugal and nine years after the Jews were forced to convert to Roman Catholicism in 1497, during the reign of King Manuel I.
Happy spring, everybody!

This is pretty much the only Beatles-related image I would ever post (well, and anything involving Michael Jackson and Paul McCartney together, I guess).
It is so amazingly sweet and also the face that girl in the front is making is a cartoon face.
