Time travel back 70 years. Photos of England and France around D-Day that fade between 1944 and 2014. Just click on the photo to see the same scene exactly 70 years apart. Pretty cool...

My brain is like an Internet browser; 12 tabs are open and 5 of them are not responding, there's a GIF playing in an endless loop,... and where is that annoying music coming from?

This is a good one, hhfarang. I visited all but Nanjing in the 80's, actually lived in Guangzhou for a spell of five months. Now that I've revisited Shanghai and Hangzhou, it's no wonder, I don't recognize them from the old any more.
