Funny image thread

Postby Monster » Thu Aug 16, 2012 2:42 pm

I didn't want to start a whole new thread just for one image, so I made this thread for many images. Post any funny image you feel like. I found this one on facebook.

You're right, it does. I didn't notice at first. Just the usual misspellings at Fox I guess.

Apparently a humorous (but edited) photo of a UN soldier is currently making the email rounds.

I looked into it a bit and here is what I found:
http://xoup.net/un-involved-in-peace

If anyone can add more to this story, I'd like to include the info on my website.

I remember that one from years ago.

Yeah, you can see how they created the word PEACE out of the other letters -- the P is made out of the R in "Africa", the two Es are taken from the E in "Involved", the A and C are taken from the end of "Africa".

Is the original image "UN - Involved in Africa"?

That's my understanding, yes. I could be wrong. There may be more to the story than I have found so far.

I don't remember where this came from, but I love it. Also, Xouper, I like your website and Gord, I love Jesus and Mo.


Ladies and Gentlemen, this is your Reality Crew speaking: As foretold by the Mayan Calendar, The Universe is one year away from it’s final destination, where this reality will terminate.

Please prepare to vacate the universe. Return all matter to its pre-atomic state, and place any left over dark matter in the black holes provided. If you require any of your checkout to be recorded as string theory equations, then please collect and retain any dimensions you require beyond the third.

Any remaining Time can be claimed back as Space if you correctly fill in your Time return forms. If you have not yet been issued with a Time return form, then this is an illusion caused by your limited dimensionality. Relax, and an authorized time collection agent will have been visiting you.

On behalf of our parent company, The Gods, and our Earth ground crew, the Mayans, we hoped you enjoyed your stay in this reality and would choose to participate in an inexplicable and random expression of spontaneously generated space-time in what, for want of a better term, we shall call “the future”.
If you keep your mind sufficiently open, people will throw all manner of garbage into it.

If you go to google and search images for "not a good sign", my image is now on page 8, and it's only been live for two days.

How did it get ranked that high so fast?

Porsche Quiz
What Porsche vehicle, designed by Ferdinand Porsche, himself, had a maximum speed of 20kilometres per hour, carried seven passengers and used diesel electric motors? Only one production example of this vehicle exists in a museum though others were built by Porsche. What was its informal name?



What Porsche test vehicle was beaten at the track by a German competitor. This vehicle had five passengers and Ferdinand Porsche built 98 chassis before it lost out at the test track. The chassis were modified and released a year later. Four examples remain on the planet. What was its formal name and who was it named after?

Ferdinand Porsche (3 September 1875 – 30 January 1951)

Both vehicles ewere considered a bit heavy by observers at the time.

It was meant as a joke. I love wheels and operating them and learned snippets on the way. Personally, I prefer driving behind a propeller symbol, especially the M3 (don't own one, though :( ). Great handling!

Here is a bit of fun.....Krauss Maffie made the German halftracks in the 39-45 war. After the war they made the Leopard tank. They also make plastic injection machines. Their plastic injection kits are used to make plastic model kits. Tamiya (Japan) makes plastic model kits of Krauss Maffie halftracks on a Krauss Maffie plastic injection machine.

Imagine the public relations officer composing a press release.
Germany & Japan team up again!( not that's not right)
Germany assists Japan in production of German wartime halftrack! ( nope )
Japan uses German technology to produce weapon models (Hmmmmm)

Ferdinand Porsche Vehicles.

Postby Matthew Ellard » Tue Sep 04, 2012 11:44 pm

May I introduce to you the only Ferdinand Porsche designed vehicle to bear his name.....

The Ferdinand

Ferdinand Porsche SdKfz.jpg


And his next vehicle....The Maus
Porsche Maus.jpg


The "zoo" reference is to the German use of animal names for AFVs during the war. The Panther, The Tiger, The Elephant, The Brown bear, The Puma, The Leopard, The Hunting hound (Hetzer), The Mule (Maultier) , The house martin (Marder) The Grasshopper (Heuschrecke) , The Rhinoceros ( Nashhorn), The Bumblebee (Hummel) and so on.

Interestingly, modern Russian AFVs are named after flowers. John le Carre, who actually was a former spy, gave his novel's main KGB/SVR baddie, the girl's name "Karla" in tribute to Russian naming systems.

That's quite a menagerie. I knew of some of them but not the whole fauna.
