Image round-up for 9 June 2022

A few more from my collection.....

I have no idea what these people are doing

Mecca, Saudi Arabia

Ukrainian currency, 2007

The John Rylands Library, Manchester UK

Elephant feast, India, 2011

Multnomah Falls, about thirty miles east of where I live.  I took this picture in 2006.  The entire waterfall is over six hundred feet high.

X-ray from after my bicycle accident in October 2009, showing the broken/dislocated metacarpal bone at right

Medusa won

Longer larger fart - being a vegan I can relate. Enjoyed Jesus for lease but was shaking my head at that truck driver. Who could be so clueless?

Very many good ones! I especially like the GIFs.

The one about getting sucked off. Was there a line?
And I cannot believe the things people do when they are driving. Really.
The one at the coffee shop is kind of slice-of-millenial-life, no?

The waterfall picture you took is outstanding.

I used my meme stealing license to acquire a few of these.

If they stand behind me . . . I'm FLAT on the floor, hyperventilating myself into a first-class heart attack!

What a great collection! The one that looks like the cat's head is in a basket, separate from the rest of the body, is an amazing capture!

Lady M: That driver must have had to ignore some pretty alarming noises, at least. I'm guessing he's no longer in the profession.

Ricko: More to come.....

Sixpence: I doubt there was a line. People tend not to expect British Rail to deliver on extravagant promises.

I'm amazed that gal can even afford coffee after paying her hairstylist bill.

Mary K: Thanks! I took several, but some of them came out blurry. It's amazing what a profusion of green there is around there -- the air is constantly damp because the waterfall generates so much mist.

Mike: Please do.....

Dellgirl: Not literally, I hope!

Martha: The person who took that must have caught the cats at just the right moment.

I've seen the Medusa one. Which confused me at first, since like most people I wasn't as familiar with Ovid's version.

Anon: Actually I suspect many people are only vaguely familiar with the original story. This sculpture was made by an artist who wanted to depict an alternate ending, with Medusa defeating Perseus.

Granny: I aim to entertain.....

ouch! is your hand fully healed?

I opted not to get surgery to repair the bone because the doctor said the break would have no impact on function, which is true. I still get episodes of pretty bad pain in that area sometimes, though.

so sorry about the pain - I had a bad skiing accident some years ago & ended up not getting surgery -- interesting to experience the body can heal on its own, just some things take longer than others

It could have been a lot worse. I also got a concussion in that accident. If I hadn't been wearing a helmet, it could easily have been a skull fracture.
