    Here are two photos i took on vacation in the Redwood National Forest in northern California in 2002. These are two of my favorite.

    A great photo. This is where it came from (and apologies if this is reducing the overall randomness of this thread):
    This photo of two elk cows surrounded by an awesome conflagration is authentic, snapped on a digital camera by U.S. Forest Service fire behavior analyst John McColgan on August 6, 2000. The location was the east fork of the Bitterroot River near Sula, Montana in the Bitterroot National Forest. "That's a once-in-a-lifetime look there," McColgan told The Missoulian after he was tracked down a month later. "I just happened to be in the right place at the right time."* Because the photo was taken with a BLM-owned digital camera, it is regarded as public property and McColgan has not been allowed to profit from it.
    And as for the kiwi...

    Yeah. The feathers are more furry than feathery. Some people say that the kiwi has the shortest beak in the world because its nostrils are right on the tip, and (they say) beak length is from the tip to the nostrils.

    Now for something, well, random...

    Last year the Australian Tourism Board came up with an advertising campaign that involved expletives. For example:



    So I grabbed a locally shot photo of a snapper and tweaked it:

    Nice one Torchboy! I hope to live in New Zealand one day but was surprised to hear that it has one of the highest UV-related mortality rates.

    Sadly yes. Comparatively pollution-free sky combined with reduced ozone protection due to the Antarctic thin patch, combined with an outdoor lifestyle, combined with lots of people who think it's smart to lie on beaches semi-naked all adds up to lots of skin cancer.

    There is a type of perfection that transcends the quest for lumens. Buying a $250 1-cell light for "lum factor" is like buying a $250 single malt Scotch for the alcohol content.

    It's a sculpture at the National Gallery of Canada in Ottawa. I like it too - it's a real attention-getter. Cheers,

    Looks like that's what he first discovered, then he tried to fit it in the lounge.

    Wow. Really wow.

    You've inspired me to post links to these movies of a water droplet in normal atmospheric pressure and another droplet at only 0.2 atmospheres. The difference is surprising, since the corona splash is completely missing on the lower pressure one.

    Droplet in 1 atm (3.8MB)
    Droplet in 0.2 atm (4MB)
