When you say good HDR, I think of stuff like this guy:

http://www.johnmilesphotography.com/jmgallery/HDR/

Images that capture wider range tonality than what is capable with a digital camera (which is generally just five stops, iirc), but still look like a real scene.

I don't consider the stuff linked here as HDR except for one or two exceptions.... the colors are false, the light is inconsistent... it looks computer generated.

Ya, thought the photos were a little weird the first time I saw them...

By the way, a very lengthy history of the 2nd ammendment up to its ratification....

not without precedent...

In 1952, William Gallagher won a pulitzer prize for taking a simliar photo showing the hole in the sole of presidential hopeful Adlai Stevenson.

I find that I just avoid apostrophes, and wind up with rather formal sounding language.

Doesn't seem much different than our own police. =P

Main difference seems to be the humvee has a weak horn instead of a siren, and they give your fender a love tap instead of a "guilty till you prove yourself innocent" fine. If I was driving the POS's like the folks in video, I'd prefer the love tap.

Check out findsounds.com -- like Google Images, but for sound. Used it to make a gag wedding gift for a friend, Aural Birth Control... a 60 minute loop of babies crying.

There was similar and very funny video... but I haven't been able to find it again... so if anybody knows what I am talking about, please, please share the link. =)

There is an alley with a guy doing surveying at one end. He asks a passerby (the victim) to help him by carrying a big red flag to the other end of the alley. Then he disappears, and a mob carrying picket signs sneaks up behind the victim as he walks down the alley. At other end of the alley, a squad of police in full riot gear appear. The victim turns around, only to find himself suddenly trapped between riot police and an angry mob.

Unfortunately, a gadget like this requires that one has a computer.

I have a friend who is such a flaming luddite that he wants his cassette collection converted to CD, but doesn't want to have a computer in his home.

So, you end up searching for expensive solutions like this, http://www.ioproducts.com/tacc.html or rack-style cd recorders and tape decks.

And yes, he works in an IT department. Old time punch card operator.

When I was in Bergen, Norway last year, this was everywhere... very cute.

Even saw a couple of times when the vandal skewed up the stencils and had the white shifted terribly off from the black.

I believe the 8 trillion is only the 'normal' budget, where this guy is including off-budget programs like Social Security, which could be considered part of the gov's bigger dept picture with all of the new pay-outs coming up.

I live in a pretty rural area, and something like this (but worse) happened on my road.

A cat got hit by a car and laid decomposing in the middle of the road. The road crew simply painted the double yellow line over the cat. It was there for quite a while, and got pretty bad with bloato-moto. Everytime you drove past, it would wave at you with its one arm proudly up in the air.

Best campaign pledge ever:

# adopting the British system of driving on the left; this was to be gradually phased in over five years with large trucks first, then buses, eventually including small cars and bicycles last.

While it could be argued as an effort to control the activities of the public through ritualistic practises and brainwashing, I don't think recycling qualifies as a secret society. =P
