Let's have a pic of the day thread. It can be anything you want, just as long as the pic made you think or smile or cry or wince or whatever. Obviously we can post actual pics here, but we shouldn't, just in case it breaches copyright.

Here's mine.

Type45 Destroyer, HMS Duncan transits the Bosphorus into the Black Sea. Go the Royal Navy.

Great idea for a thread Snorvey.

Here's a fantastic picture that shows that all the major planets in our Solar System can fit into the gap between the Earth and our Moon -

Quite mind-blowing to think that human footprints exist on that little ball of moon-dust...

Cheers,

Fascinating. Am I the only one who's reminded of that early episode of Red Dwarf where they play a snooker trick shot with asteroids and a couple of planets in order to plug a black hole? :lol:

...oh, and I believe it was a white hoe, not a black hole. Spewing time.

So what is it?

Ok, so we could actually start a Dwarf favourite quote thread as well?

Wilma Flintstone is probably the sexiest woman in the world.

So what do you think of Betty?

Betty Rubble?

Well I'd go with Betty....but I'd be thinking of Wilma.

It's a good pic, but I can't help regretting how the drive for efficiency has resulted in a dramatic deterioration in the appearance of modern warships. With all its slab sides (no doubt very efficient in defeating radar) and that silly blob-topped tower it's an ugly beast.

Even a few years ago warships still looked like `proper' ships. By way of comparison here's a pic of a US Navy destroyer, USS Jason Dunham, which was launched as recently as 2009 - https://www.walldevil.com/wallpapers/w0 ... -ships.jpg

The same thing has happened with passenger liners. The traditional ships were elegant and beautifully proportioned, but modern ones look like a floating tower block, and are as ugly as sin.

What a coincidence. I was driving over Portsdown Hill near Portsmouth today, avoiding solid M27, and saw exactly that black rectangular aerial (or whatever it is) that's on the ship atop a building along with various radomes.

That's one of those shows, a bit like Fawlty Towers, that I can watch over and over again.

It'll be interesting to see how many more they can make till they call it a day.

I think I kind of gave up on it after S7 or thereabouts.

The quotes still fly about the house from time to time. There's a series on BBC one where a woman policewoman / detective has had her arm amputated.

The first thing that popped into my mind was Bodyswap

'you've lost me arm!'

'it's worse than that, I've lost your wristwatch too'

The fun never stops in Snorvey Towers eh?

I have to admit that the most recent series (XI) felt a bit tired and they all show their age now, but series X was quite good. I liked the actor who plays the simulant 2nd in command who thinks that he has to kill himself with the commander's sword as punishment for failure, sticks it in his belly, but is then told a second later later that he's expected to just polish it. Backing out, embarrassed, picking up what look like chili sausages "Whoops, that bit looks important!" :-)

Nearly had the pic of the month .!

This steam roller was in a steam parade through our town on Saturday but it lost traction and had to pull to the side until more steam was raised.

After a while (and maybe a bit more coal) it suddenly lurched forward , only the front roller was at a 45 degree angle from the road , basically a steam roller "wheelie" ? Don't know if the driver started off with the wheel on full lock ?
It must have travelled about 10 yards with just the right hand edge of the front roller on the road . By the time I had sorted my phone/camera out , the driver had righted it......so this is after what would have been a cracking photo.

(My own photo)
