The wildebeest photo is amazing, and I am also struck by the perspective distortion. The animals in the back look huge, which is an optical illusion. If you measured them in the pic, they'd be about the same size as those in the foreground, but since we expect them to look smaller than those in the front, the sameness distorts our perception. This happens when a photo is taken from quite a distance away, which flattens the perspective.

From the Jewish Virtual Library:

Judaism does not prohibit writing the Name of God per se; it prohibits only erasing or defacing a Name of God. However, observant Jews avoid writing any Name of God casually because of the risk that the written Name might later be defaced, obliterated or destroyed accidentally or by one who does not know better. Observant Jews avoid writing a Name of God on web sites like this one because there is a risk that someone else will print it out and deface it. To avoid writing the Name, Orthodox Jews (and sometimes other denominations) substitute letters or syllables, for example, writing "G-d" instead of "God."

The family was at Macy's in New York, and I had the kids look for a restroom sign. No one could find one, but finally, one kid said, "The only sign I saw said Ladies' Lounge." They had no idea what that meant, but Mom and I did!

I used to throw epic parties... the kind where people get arrested or evicted. Then about 20 years ago, it started getting harder and harder to get people to show up. I have since joined them and turned into a hermit.

I agree it's probably the best film ever. The core asset is the story, the struggle between honor and greed, between duty and pleasure, between one's own happiness and the fate of the world. Everything else: the fine actors, the setting, the comic relief, all add whipped cream to the experience.
