Round photographic plates.

Caption;-
A photograph of great historical interest. The track is one left by a positron. This positron possessed, an energy of 63 MeV, before entering the lead plate from below; after penetrating the 6 mm. lead plate, it proceeded with an energy of 23 MeV. This change of energy, shows definitely, the direction of motion of the particle and, therefore, allows one to conclude, that it is positively charged.

A film Jeremiah Johnson, not necessarily true.

A mountain man asked him, whether he was any good at skinning bears. He said that he could skin them, faster than the mountain man could catch them.

So running down the mountain, with a bear in hot pursuit. His friend runs in the front door of the cabin and jumps out the back window.

"You skin that one ... and I'll go catch me another one!"
