World War I flyers

skull with aviator's helmet and goggles and German 50-mark note between the teeth as a symbol of the cheapness of an aviator's life


Take the manifold out of my back
Take the crankshaft out of my brain
Take the pistons out of my stomach
And assemble the fucking engine again

--World War I aviators' song

I suppose things will remain the same -- that is, carnage will continue to be perpetuated -- until armed conflict is abolished as an institution of human society.
