What's this?

It's an SUV. But why is it under water?

You'll have to ask these guys...

They had this idea of driving underwater, so they fixed up their SUV...

And drove it into the lake.

As you can see, it does get deep enough...

So, how cool is that? Ok, yeah I know it'd be cooler and more fun if there had been some kind of hilarious disaster.... but nevertheless... driving an SUV into a lake and then driving it back out again really is pretty cool!

A Very Disturbing Photograph  

Posted by Shirley Twofeathers in ,

Starving Child


This is the pulitzer prize winning photo taken in 1994 during the Sudan famine. The picture depicts a famine stricken child crawling towards an United Nations food camp, located a kilometer away.

The vulture is waiting for the child to die so that it can eat it. This picture shocked the whole world. No one knows what happened to the child, including the photographer Kevin Carter who left the place as soon as the photograph was taken.

Three months later he committed suicide due to depression.

Bananas On The Beach  

Posted by Shirley Twofeathers in ,

bananas

On the Dutch island of Terschelling, beaches are often awash in treasures—like the bunches of bananas that floated ashore (top photo).

It was sneakers (bottom photo) and aluminum briefcases in February 2006. The shore was covered with sweaters before that. For the moment the island has more bananas than it can use.

The island was molded into its current shape by a violent storm in 1296, according to its official web site. Things have been washing ashore ever since.

Eclipsed Moonlight  

Posted by Shirley Twofeathers in , ,

lunar eclipseMoon watchers blessed with clear skies over the Americas, Europe, Africa and western Asia enjoyed a total lunar eclipse this week. Catching eclipsed moonlight, astroimager Jerry Lodriguss offers this view of the inspiring celestial event with the shadowed Moon accompanied by wandering planet Saturn at the left, and bright Regulus, alpha star of the constellation Leo, above. The engaging composite picture was made by combining a filtered, telephoto image of the Moon and surrounding starfield with a telescopic exposure. The combination dramatizes the reddened moonlight while clearly showing the variation of brightness and color in Earth's not-so-dark shadow across the lunar surface.

lunar eclipse and moon phasesThis great photo shows not only the eclipsed moon, but also the various phases as the earth's shadow passes.

I found these pictures sitting in the My Documents folder in my computer. I have no idea how they got there or where they came from. It must have been a too much tequila not enough rational thinking kind of night. If one or more of them belongs to you and you don't want them here - I'll be happy to remove them.
