I did not give credit, because the first tme i uploaded it, i gave, and left the 9 gag logo too. The content got 10 thumbs down in like 5 minutes, and i did not want you, to miss this extremely epic work because of a stupid site war.
And for those who want to learn how to do it, a lil tutorial: You need to login to view this link
EDIT2: You guys always amaze me. After looking thru the comments, ive seen many emotional, and intelligent comments, well, much more than i normally see under rage-comics and pointless unfunny contents. Thank you for the lots of thumbs, so more fellow funnyjunkies could see, and maybe think about these influential pictures.

*me channels 10th grade history*
They're actually some kind of monks that are apparently so precious towards life, they'd stop and let a single ant cross before continuing so they don't step on it, and they burned themselves as a protest of they're bad government.

I am so mad right now
No truly, so f*cking mad
I don't know if you are an American, but if you are, I am truly appaled by your knowledge.
That's a monk, a buddhist monk, NO; not some kind of fancy monk which must not kill any ants or some sorts, just a NORMAL (maybe a bit fanatic) buddhist monk.
But that's not the reason I am mad.
I am mad because the picture is taken in Vietnam, in SOUTH-VIETNAM.
The person is burning himself because it was a form of protest in South-Vietnam at that time.
South-Vietnam had a government, INSTITUTED BY THE USA, which was christian, this christian (I repeat instituted by the US!) government didn't like freedom of religion, but the US didn't ******* care, because as long as they weren't communist, they could kill all they like.
This monk is burning himself because this US favoured government, instituted by the US after they abolished elections because of the fear communist's would win, was executing buddhists and burning buddhist temples.
The latter part of your answer is the only part which matters, the first part (which you lay emphasis on) is not relevant in any way.
PS: Did I note the government was non-democratically instituted by the US?

TL;DR: You better read it because it would be good for amerifats to learn about problems in history they have caused.

The US didn't force the government on them, they decided to not be communist because if they had become communist the US would be there enemy. Besides we couldn't control their government and stop them from doing the **** they were doing. The US isnt the ******* personal bodyguard of every 3rd world country.

You probably are a slut too.

in what way does knowing something about the world institute someone to be a slut? what are you 12? try learning some definitions of the insults you're throwing out there before you hurt yourself
User avatar #605 to #506 - odapac (01/15/2012) [-]
Haha, oh, no it's not that...my entire graduating class was the most sarcastic and retarded group of people, haha. "Slut" was one of our favorites. Poor excuse, I know, but it's all I have.

I called a grown ass man a slut. Guess Funnyjunk can't handle stupid insults anymore. I'll go down with the pinkies.

yeah if he is willing to do that for his cause then he awesome but i don't know how to say something with out getting on someones bad side so i'm just gonna shut up
#91 to #89 - xzillerationer (01/15/2012) [-]
It's hard to get on my bad side. But, yes, they had absolute dedication to their cause. So much so that they died for it.

i'm sure not yours you seem so loving and compassionate but i meant other tempermental 12yr olds that might read that an get defensive then again pinkies don't mean anything in the first place so...yeah

The album art finally makes sense. I always thought it was snow, or some **** . Never noticed the flames or the man, and I've seen the picture a hundred times.

No it was before the vietnam war in 1963, (the vietnam war really satarted in 1964).

The monk immolated himself to protest against Ngô Đình Diệm's dictatorship.

And Ngô Đình Diệm became president with the support of the usa

Just check wikipedia.

June 11, 1963, Thich Quang Duc, a Buddhist monk from Vietnam, burned himself to death at a busy intersection in downtown Saigon to bring attention to the repressive policies of the Catholic Diem regime that controlled the South Vietnamese government at the time. Buddhist monks asked the regime to lift its ban on flying the traditional Buddhist flag, to grant Buddhism the same rights as Catholicism, to stop detaining Buddhists and to give Buddhist monks and nuns the right to practice and spread their religion.
As he burned he never moved a muscle, never uttered a sound

Check out the vid. it's quite shocking - www.youtube.com/watch?v=E37...

Correct me if I'm wrong but didn't he like train himself to not feel pain when he did this?

I remember this from World History 9th grade year.
User avatar #440 to #430 - strychnine (01/15/2012) [-]
yes, he had prepared himself for his self-immolation through several weeks of meditation.

Their are three main kinds of colour vision defects. Red-green colour vision defects (the one you described) which are the most common.The other major types are blue-yellow color vision defects and then their is Achromatopsia a complete absence of colour vision... So maybe some one wouldn't be able to see it.
