    I LOL`D that goatse made the list
    thousands of more innocent victims are now scarred for life :)
    The picture really isn`t THAT disturbing. It`s gay porn basically. That`s nothing. A picture of a murder or rape or something is much more disturbing.
    It`s the human body people. It`s not THAT gross.

    ROFLMAO. Lolcat is in the list! I think it`s still the most influential photograph today.

    And thankfully it included the more recent ones, otherwise I would have thought myself as missing out on quite a few famous stuff (those earlier on).

    And Marilyn Monroe, which is really sad, because they both have gorgeous figures.

    Anyway,
    I can`t believe that this picture wasn`t featured...

    It`s just, desperate and hysterical. That kid must have only been about 10 at the time...
    I dunno, i just realllly like that picture.

    A bit too US-centric as one of the comments below points out, particularly the three second world war picture.

    And I also find it disturbing that more people find the Goatse picture shocking than the execution of a prisoner with his hands tied behind his back, or two men hung from a tree, or children near death`s door. But whatever you think people.

    Really amazing photos, though one could point out that these are mainly pictures of AMERICAN history. (Stuff does happen elsewhere too you know.) Seems kinda funny to see lolcat and goatse next to tiananmen and biafra... I guess that just says something about the world today. :-/

    Tubgirl is an image of a woman`s ass in a tub that`s shooting out some sort of disgusting liquid. Goatse is an image of a man spreading his anus very wide open.
    Now you don`t have to look it up.
    Also, I still believe those are far less disturbing than the images of starving children and murders.

    "A bit too US-centric as one of the comments below points out, particularly the three second world war picture."

    Maybe because the photos from Civil War were around the time US started (and continues) to be the biggest influence in the world, short of space aliens (xD/rofl)? I`m sure if the pictures were from 1500-1800 and if they had cameras back then it would be more European....or Asian.

    And @ NoGoodIdeas: That is sick. Damn.

    Also, about the vietnamese one (someone said something about it): Things worse than that happened in WW2 and Korea. Waaaaay worse in Korea. It`s not like they had lethal injection for the enemy other than a bullet, plus the dude probably ended up being either A) a spy, B) blew something up and killed many, or C) heavy resistance against his captors. C being the most UNlikely one.

    I just want to say this next thing, DONT START ANOTHER F****** DEBATE AGAIN! Photos like that destroy the chance for the public to support a war. Vietnam could have b

    i think that if the goatse picture made the list, then the TUBGIRL pic should have been added to the list as well:

    I didn`t know JFK`s head actually exploded, and others are way more graphic than the goatse one.

    Tub Girl is more disgusting than goatse.cx anyway.

    wow, lots of great photos. many disturbing ones that i wouldn`t exactly call great, but important all the same. i remember a few of those photographers from a history of photography class i had. i remember liking lewis hine`s work alot, i`m glad he made the list.

    Wow, did NOT expect goatse. Although it is a pretty influential picture when you think about it.

    Actually I do believe that Goatse is a bit less disturbing than rape and murder but definitely not "just the human body".

    HE`S FREAKING STRETCHING IT LIKE WAY TOO MUCH.

    Disgustinggggggggggggggg.

    OMG THAT GOATSE WAS TERRABLE.
    I found a lot of these really sad after the 1800`s. When the 1900`s came it seemed very horrable to watch

    "Photos like that destroy the chance for the public to support a war."

    LOL @ redflare... Who the heck supports a war? Maybe some rednecks...? Not sensible people.

    meh...I agree with most people...I`ve seen most of the pics, but there`re still some pics that shock me...like the starving children, and the pic of a normal size hand holding a hand of a starving child. That was very emotional...
