No smilies, no avatars, no flashing gifs. Just discuss the issues of the day, from last night's telly via football to science or philosophy.

Something that piqued my interest momentarily

Just somewhere to put random stuff that caught your interest for a bit. Avoids the "Did it actually cheer me up though?" quandary.

# 1 is superb.

I can’t work out what the feck it is. Clouds sitting right at sea level?

Bonusy - 15 Nov 2021 20:11:59 (#6 of 157)

Clouds in a valley isn't it?

edit: clouds on a coast, but the mountains you can see are well above sea level. If you stop the gif at 34 secs, you can see the coastline in the distance

SteveFrench - 15 Nov 2021 20:14:01 (#7 of 157)

But then the sun is reflecting off it?

Bonusy - 15 Nov 2021 20:15:12 (#8 of 157)

The sun is above the clouds usually Steve. It turns out, we orbit it

You crazy wizard

Confusing perspective

Tried and failed to work out what was going on in the photo. Someone explained in the comments though.

Link doesn't work, which one is it?

I'm not sure what was odd about the first, with the cars.

The not floating bin behind the stain, very good. As was the dog with a gobful of pine cone!

It wasn't any of them, Bonus. Seems to have been deleted.

Found a link which didn't give the illusion away immediately (seems to be quite an old one)

Ah yes, once pointed out, really obvious. Just looks like a shitty photoshop before that

I've just had a self-build fajita.

At my table, two of the Norwegians had something similar. One made neat piles of chicken, salsa, guacamole, cheese and sour cream sauce. He carried the plate in one hand and the wrap in the other. He held the wrap in both hands, munched his way through it, then ate the rest, using a knife and fork.

The other laid the wrap on his plate, the put the ingredients on, mixed up. He cut it up and "spooned" it with his fork - chicken, salsa etc on top of a bit of wrap.

I'm tempted to offer lessons in how to wrap them up.

A bit of spam on Facebook today had 'Bread Gloves make everything a sandwich', which may have helped in this instance.

A, a Viz classic advert.

Artisanal sardine canning in Portugal. Might only interest me though.

Made me hungry watching.

30,000 cans a day though, crikey.

Again with the clouds
