Post something here that interests you. No usurping copyrights, please, and no spamming. Honor system - one pic per day per member.

Here's mine. It's a view from the cabin of a (simulated) Delta Airlines 737 during departure - that's Jacksonville, Florida out the window.

here's my random pic:



The Return of the Joker, coming to theaters soon.

Here's one scene from the film: "Riddle me this batman: As we know, There are known knowns. There are things we know we know. We also know there are known unknowns. That is to say we know there are some things we do not know. But there are also unknown unknowns, the ones we don't know we don't know"

Are you sure George Bush didn't say that? ;)

Nope, that was Rumsfeld's 2003 Foot-in-Mouth Award-winning speech from 12 February 2002. It was also parodied in an episode of the Boondocks by Gin Rummy, voiced by none other than Sir Samuel L. Jackson.

This is actually language used all the time in basic project management. I went to a three-day course on PMing, and the instructor actually mentioned this rumsfeld speech. It was meant to be funny, but it's even funnier that, given the proper understanding of what constitutes a "known known," a "known unknown," an "unknown known" and a "unknown unknown," it actually makes sense.

***This is not to be misconstrued as an endorsement of Rumsfeld***

Think of it as Skull Island for theistic beliefs...Even if you survive the Choobusaurus there is still that ravine full of giant atheistropods waiting to make a meal of you.

George Bush never would have been able to keep all of that straight in his little pea brain. hell, he couldn't even get the whole "screw me once, shame on you. screw me twice, shame on me" thing right.

It is an animated gif that I uploaded on Imageshack and I get this:

You can also get this and more of Rumsfeld's existential poetry here.

Here is my random picture - empty marmite jars artistically arranged by persons unknown in a churchyard in Oxford.

This is why people cry at weddings

You can always turn tricks for a few extra bucks. If looks are an issue, there's the glory hole option, but don't expect more than ... tips.
