Title: Post your awesome pictures here!!!
Post by: Hijiri Byakuren on March 08, 2016, 11:38:43 PM
Similar to "Post your funny pictures here!!!" except this thread is for the awe-inspiring stuff. It can be pictures of space, gods, dragons, whatever. If it invokes your wow factor, put it here. I'll start.

Stuff we found. Like I said, it's in the same vain as "post your funny pictures here."

If this isn't the right place for it, then a mod can move it.

I guarantee you I would use it faaaaar less, if there is a man I can sleep on in it in front of a river stone fireplace. And as you informed we'll lose power a lot. :biggrin: 

I mean look at this. I don't think there is power there.

Some of the stuff I got after doing the convention. It was a pretty shitty convention and no one made any sales, but I met a lot of awesome people and made a lot of friends. We traded artwork at the end. It meant more that someone I endured that show with and befriended took it home than for me to bring home dead merchandise that I'll probably never use again.

This might just seem like nothing to anyone else, but for me, its kind of special. Back in the 80s, this was how the local area looked like when I walked to school, a row of shops on the right, and the path coming towards the camera was the way I walked to school. These days, this whole area was knocked down, all accept for the block of flats in the background, so just felt nice when I came across this image.

I just love getting to see places I remember from years ago, even if its all changed having a photo of video of from back then.

Its a shame that erotic artists don't get as much recognition for their works as non-erotic ones. I'm a part time furry, and seeing some of the artists on furry fan sites, I've realized how much effort some of them out into their artwork, but it just get regulated down to 'smut' or 'furry fan fiction'.

The real reason why I'm drawn to sites like these is more because of the freedom of expression artists have to drawing what they want, without ridicule from the mainstream would have for what their drawing.

I just find it a shame that when people have talent, and express it how they wish, society at large won't accept it due to prudish rhetoric. Obviously I can understand it also, because if art and images of nudity and eroticism were to be more publicly regarded, whats to stop more disturbing artwork from being shown.

Its kind of why despite loving seeing naked guys and artists capturing them, I lock my bedroom door when my have my nephews round.

But anyway I suppose the point I'm making is, I grew up appreciating artwork from comic book artists and animators, revered the world over for their talent, and making it timeless, from hayao miyazaki to don bluth, from Alex Ross to Jim Lee. They are revered for their works. And yet artists as good as them remain just on internet sites as fan works or erotic art only held in a small market, which is a shame.

That's down by the Old Mill stream!

Quote
My darling I am dreaming of the days gone by,
 When you and I were sweethearts beneath the summer sky;
 Your hair has turned to silver, the gold has faded too;
 But still I will remember, where I first met you.

(Verse 2)

The old mill wheel is silent and has fallen down,
 The old oak tree has withered and lies there on the ground;
 While you and I are sweethearts the same as days of yore;
 Although we've been together, forty years and more.

(Chorus)

Down by the old mill stream where I first met you,
 With your eyes of blue, dressed in gingham too,
 It was there I knew that you loved me true,
 You were sixteen, my village queen, by the old mill stream.

Great lyrics and thoughts!  I once saw a functioning waterwheel in New England.  I stared at it as long as my parents allowed.  When we got home in Petersburg VA, where there was a creek (an actual old civil war trench  that the local water had found its way into), I built one.  A bad one.  But it worked.  I was insufferably pleased.  Hey, I was 12...

That's just awesome.  I need to find the video I got that captures the life cycle of a lightning bolt -- one frame caught the stepped leader emerging from the clouds, another couple frames caught a positive streamer creeping up the side of the house next door, about 20' away (!), and lastly the bolt itself, striking about a mile away, connecting perfectly with the spot the stepped leader had first appeared.  I should be able to extract the frames and put together a respectable animated GIF.

I sometimes wonder what the world is like to that frog.  Or a snake.  I once sat and watched a small snakw in my small pond grab a frog and spend an hour swallowing it,  The frog croaked piteously. 

Some other person might have saved the frog.  I didn't.  I watched (sadly).  I guess that is how nature photographers have to think.

On the other hand, had that been a hawk and one of my cats, they would have hawk feathers to play with.  There are limits.  And the boundaries are tricky.

I guess a snake likes to savor its meals, and must have all the patience it needs to enjoy a good dinner.

Yeah, be a nature photographer.  Be in a plexiglass container, while a Great White circles trying to bite you (he can't see the plastic).  Or the same on land, while a Serengeti lion (much smarter than a shark) tries to figure out the easy opening package!

When movie makers in the '70s wanted to imply an other worldliness to a scene they'd do things like that. "The Dunwich Horror" is an example.

I always get the impression that h.p Lovecraft's creations were always open to interpretation, vague, so if one person thinks they nailed it, another one comes along with a completely different idea

Just looking up Azathoth, the blind idiot god, has all difference interpretations.
(https://vignette.wikia.nocookie.net/villains/images/b/b4/Azathoth_the_Nuclear_Chaos.jpg/revision/latest/scale-to-width-down/640?cb=20120505222004)

I think lovecraft left them as vague as possible, because he wanted to create the idea of them being beyond human comprehension, that nobody could just tie down his old gods with one basic design, because if they were beyond what we could rationalize, that made them all the more terrifying.

So alien that it's mercifully nearly incomprehensible - just this massive, pulsating smear on reality.  The sheer scope of it...it's just breathtaking.  And it never looks right.  It looks unnatural and a mockery of the universe that we know of.  It's horrible but enthralling, pulling you in.  You want to turn away, but you're curious.  So very curious.  But just a momentary glance from such a thing will utterly unmake any mortal.  Thankfully, its court keeps it rather busy.  But their noise is maddening.  To be among that court is to court death or worse.

Anyone remember the awesome cover for the Hero Quest game from the 80s?
YES.  I love that game!  I loved being the DM.  The DM has a wonderfully devastating array of traps and spells.  I delighted in keeping them in reserve, unleashing them at extremely inopportune times.  I never made things impossible for them, but I made a walk in the park into a challenging encounter.

Sadly, my physical copy was misplaced long ago.  I would love to play it again.

Bob Newhart with his one-sided telephone calls?

(edited to add, I posted this March 17 - how does it show up March 13 )?
The March 13 that's showing up is the date of my post.  Yours shows up as being posted today.

And no, I don't believe Newhart is on Archive -- but he never had a radio show to the best of my knowledge.  Stan Freberg did (https://archive.org/details/stan_freberg_show), of course.

I think that is the "law of averages" ... the particles at the periphery are moving faster ... so if you block the center out, then your sense of average speed should go up.

People don't "think" thru statistics, most of the time.  We deal with multiple things simultaneously by intuition, by heuristic.  Which is why multi-tasking is dangerous in a medical environment.  Until calculators and computers, actually doing statistics was tedious and boring.

I googled ... opossums like to eat pumpkins.  So maybe he had gotten inside, by eating thru the bottom (hidden from view).  The opossum riding on the back of the alligator could have two origins ... one ... baby possums ride on the back of their mother ... two ... an inversion of the old scorpion vs the frog ...

"A scorpion asks a frog to carry it across a river. The frog hesitates, afraid of being stung, but the scorpion argues that if it did so, they would both drown. Considering this, the frog agrees, but midway across the river the scorpion does indeed sting the frog, dooming them both."

Seems a parable for American politics.

No, those sites have been searched and searched again.  According to Keesberg, the man brought to trial for eating his fellow travelers, she did like to wander quite a bit--so it could be anywhere on the entire mt.  Do ya feel lucky???!

The last 'rescue' party (it was not a rescue party, but a salvage party) that brought back Keesberg and a bunch of salvage, found some money, but not anywhere near all the gold that Tamsen Donner is supposed to have had.  She outlived her husband and was known to wander in the snow; hence, the rest of the gold must remain hidden.  So, get your shovel and map of the Donner path over the pass and come back rich!!

I don't remember.  I know the Donner family sold everything they had and bought some wagons and supplies and the rest was turned into gold coins.  Some were found on the mt. but not nearly enough to account for all that they were supposed to have had.  But then, any amount of 1846 gold coins would be worth, well, a pretty-penny--right???

Depends on the rarity of the coins. My sister inherited 23 "double eagle" gold coins that appraised, in 1963, at just above their value as gold bullion.

That seems odd considering I've never seen a double eagle, I would think the collector value would be high, especially with all the gold hoarders and collectors.  I have owned Krugerrands and Canadian Maple Leafs which are basically only worth their value as bullion, but they are minting those continually.

They should appraise quite a bit higher than that now, especially if they're the St Gauden's Standing Liberty -- my perennial nominee for the most beautiful coin this country ever minted.  Remember that in 1963 the value of gold was fixed in this country, and gold ownership was controlled in the US under the Gold Reserve Act of 1933, which wasn't relaxed until 1964 and formally ended until 1975.

And the US still mints quarter-, half-, full and double eagles as bullion (https://catalog.usmint.gov/coins/gold-coins/?_ga=2.25559736.402024341.1524062849-1870455973.1524062849) (as well as in silver and platinum), but they were until 1933 circulating coins to one degree or another (https://en.numista.com/catalogue/index.php?mode=avance&p=1&l=united-states&r=&e=united-states&d=&ca=3&no=&i=&v=&m=gold&a=&t=&dg=&w=&u=&f=&g=&c=&tb=y&tc=y&cat=y).

Many double Eagles and Eagles sell not much more than gold bullion coins, but yes, they have collector value anyway.  The reason is that the gold bullion market suppresses the sale price of all gold items (other than jewelry).  A good reason for suppression of gold price from the beginning, is the restrain of free market on jewelry (think the DeBeers monopoly).

Part of the reason why so many of these have survived, is they haven't been melted down.  Larger gold coins were always held by banks, not used by individuals.  There are still US gold coins in bank vaults around the world, as part of their gold reserve.  And these coins keep emerging decade after decade.  But there are dates and mints that are particularly rare.  Some issues always have been rare (the $3 gold piece) that they have long been counterfeited.

British Sovereigns were commonly held by banks, so they are usually plentiful and in good condition.  Half Sovereigns were circulated, produced in smaller quantities, and so are rare.  Because the gold Sovereign was so popular in the ME (thanks to the bribes put out by Laurence of Arabia) ... counterfeit Sovereigns were produced in Beirut Lebanon, and of good quality, because other good gold coins were unacceptable there, and so were melted down to produce a more acceptable form.

China puts out an incredible quantity of fake US coins, particular Morgan silver dollars.  These are of poor quality (not enough silver).  Chinese dynasties have fallen do to similar degrading in the past.

New infrared filters.  Here I took identical 680, 730 and 850nm shots and shifted them into the visible spectrum, basically: 680 to blue, 730 to green and 850 to red.  I have a 950nm filter but it's problematic because of the extended exposure times it requires.

Anyway, my back yard, shifted up from the infrared:

Well, basically, the 680 nanometer filter is on the "bluer" end of the near-infrared and the 850nm filter is on the "redder" end, so all I did was take three identical images with different filters into my image processing software, reduce each to black and white, and then add them together as the red, green and blue color channels to create a false-color image -- keeping each in their same relative position along the spectrum (longest wavelength to red, shortest to blue).

It's more or less exactly the same thing NASA does to retrieve color images -- they launch B&W cameras, with a set of filters to choose from.  They select three images using different filters, and assemble them as RGB layers, and the order they get used has as much to do with aesthetics as it does science.  PBS has a good explanation of how, for example, Hubble's "Pillars of Creation" was assembled (https://www.pbs.org/wgbh/nova/origins/hubb-01.html).  Only one of the original images was actually in the visible range (the green of doubly-ionized oxygen) -- the other two (hydrogen and ionized sulfur) were both in the infrared.

Side note: it's theorized that the Pillars are a ghost.  Spitzer revealed a supernova nearby to the Eagle Nebula that might have blown the Pillars apart 6,000 years ago (https://www.newscientist.com//article/dn10925-pillars-of-creation-destroyed-by-supernova), so at their distance of 7,000 light years, they'll only remain visible another millennium.

Side note: it's theorized that the Pillars are a ghost.  Spitzer revealed a supernova nearby to the Eagle Nebula that might have blown the Pillars apart 6,000 years ago (https://www.newscientist.com//article/dn10925-pillars-of-creation-destroyed-by-supernova), so at their distance of 7,000 light years, they'll only remain visible another millennium.

I appreciate all that.  And actually I DO understand the false color pictures, angstroms, light-shift, galactic lensing and how they are adjusted with hubble et al.

Its my digital camera settings I can't figure out, LOL!

It's a dry dirt road.  After I changed the colors, I shopped the road out of the original photo into the altered photo so that one thing would look real.

And it works brilliantly (the sky was also left alone -- whether that was by design or not, I don't care, it works)!

Thanks.  I didn't fiddle with the sky.  What happened was not by design.  I've noticed when getting outrageous with colors,  I have no way of knowing what's going to work beforehand or what unintended consequence is going to turn up.  Some things work and others don't.

That's the whole point of playing around in the graphics manipulation program of your choice (I'm a GIMP man, m'self): to see what's in the image that wasn't immediately obvious to the lens and sensor.

I use a 20 year old copy of Paint Shop Pro.  I bought it to "paint" the structures I create for Flight Sim scenery.  I also use it for resizing and cropping photos and doing other normal "dark room" tasks, like adding saturation to something that looks washed out.  I never thought about going wild with color until I noticed someone here doing it a couple of years back.

Whatever tool works -- I used to use PSP, probably about 20 years ago, come to think of it.

I'm more a believer in "do what works" rather than "do it this way".  :D

Indeed you did not.  But I suspect the choice of image was intended to surprise some people.  Especially given the sequence of the images.  If you hadn't wished to surprise some people, you would have shown the guy FIRST,  LOL!

I thought it was to point out the sexual dimorphism in allowable imagery. Male nipples allowed, female nipples not allowed, and "nipple" without modifier is assumed to be female.

actually it was more just about taking liberties to the fact men can flash their nips about, but it could also have that added to it for context.

Actually I think it is more interesting that males have them at all.  Apparently, they develop before gender is established.  And here I thought that was the FIRST thing that happened when sperm meets egg.  Ya live and learn.

Well, I checked.  We are all female at fertilization.  The hormones change us later.  Mother Nature is not really very efficient.

I don't know if it is the law of averages, but items coming straight at you do not have the same sense of speed at something moving sideways from you. Take a piece of paper and cover half of it.....you'll see.

Length of wormhole, natch.  14 parsecs is a short distance, galaxy wise.  About 46 light-years.
