Peckers cutoff - I can't imagine many fellas wanting to live there.

Trump with a beard and wings on the unicorn is cool.

But the Mexican agate looks like an alien from the planet Plures Oculos. Creepy.

Lady M: One has suspicions about why their population is not growing.

Shaw: I'm sure that's not meant to be Trump -- I'm pretty strict about keeping anything political out of these image round-ups (that's what the "truths and inspirations" posts are for).

A lot of minerals have weird internal patterns like that -- I think it's impurities or something, though I don't know why they would form circles.

There are some really beautiful ones this time, Infidel.

I also loved the guy kicking the "dancer" off the train and the concealed rifle storage in the truck side wall.

Thanks! Beauty is an under-appreciated quality these days.

I've seen some very ingenious methods used for concealing guns. People probably have them hidden all over the place in locations others would never think of.

Always a good mix of interesting stuff. The last GIF is from "The Menu", which I watched only a few days ago.

Thanks! I didn't know that -- in most cases I don't know where these come from, except for the ones I identify with captions (and of course obvious things like The Avengers).

I don't think I would want to go on a train that was moving that fast.
Some of those are too funny but that big alligator on the bridge is huge.

I suspect even the TGV would stop and turn back rather than face that alligator.
