The abandoned Bislingen mountain lodge in Norway stands empty on an icy mountainside, this abandoned ski lodge is being reclaimed by the frozen environment it was built to serve. Built 691m above sea level in 1967, the lodge has been left open to the frosty elements since it was left to ruin six years ago.

Unknown Pennsylvania Zouave-Style Jacket
A blue wool short jacket with tight weave pattern sharing characteristics of late war construction, trimmed with two welts of narrow red braid (similar to Birney?s Zouaves) giving the illusion of a false vest, with distinct sky blue cuffs beneath interwoven red sleeve braiding of unknown regimental association.
The jacket combines a false vest with a true short trimmed collar, shared characteristics that cannot be documented in a Civil War context. The combination of red piped trim and solid sky blue seems to be unique to Pennsylvania Civil War Zouave regiments. Apart from the perplexing exterior details, the coat is made with glazed brown cotton lining having a single interior pocket on the left side with separate striped glazed cotton lined sleeves, a characteristic usually, but not always associated with post-war construction.The nine small eagle buttons including some others are a combination of stamped Horstmann and post-Civil War Pettibone manufacture mixed with unmarked examples. Accepting that buttons are easily substituted, it should be pointed out that the Pettibone Manufacturing Company produced military buttons from about 1880 to 1920.
A number of the post-war Philadelphia militia commands and later Pennsylvania National Guard (PNG) regiments from 1870 onwards are known to have adopted widely variant Zouave-style uniforms during the 1865 to 1872 period before the popularity waned, but details are generally sparse. For example, the Gray Reserves, later the 1st Regiment PNG wore a ?dark blue chasseur coat and sky blue facings? from 1865 to 1869. The Philadelphia Fire Zouaves, later the 4th Regiment PNG, were uniformed in a ?blue jacket trimmed with red?with sky blue vest? from 1870 to 1873. (Lacking certain provenance this military uniform jacket cannot be substantively documented in a Civil War context), while the ambiguous style and finer points of construction would seem to point to an immediate post-war time frame. Still, it is impossible to say with absolute certainty the origin and usage of the coat except to say that it is American.

why do people ask “why are you single” like honestly what response are you expecting to get
They’re waiting for the response “because I’ve been waiting on you”
"what did this man do, officer?"
