Holy burning bandwidth, Batman!

They don't use scaled down versions of the images to display them in their gallery, they just hotlink and let browsers resize the originals which are up to 5MB a piece. And there are 30+ images on each page

So don't be surprised if your browser takes a bit to download the 30-150 MB per gallery page.
/if this were to go to the main page instead of FarkUs, they'll have to cancel next year's contest to pay this year's AmazonAWS bill

I was gonna vote for it just cause you had the audacity to whore yourself on Fark and had the dumb luck to get it greenlit, but I actually kinda like it, so here's my 5/5 for you.

OK... here's the deal:

When I was in art school, the only recurring element we discussed from Dali were his elephants. Many feminist writers believed that they stood for a domination over the female of the species. A very intelligent (and very pro-feminist) instructor pointed out to me that the spindly legs of the elephants represented the patriarchal, yet unstable tenets of the male-dominated hierarchy.

So... I'm not one of those folks that points out the feminist imagery in everything, but thank you, Mrs. Ellen Diem. You showed me that you could point out those symbologies in art without going on some feminist diatribe. Each sex has its opportunity to show the world how important it is without diminishing the importance of the other.

Sex is a crucial part of our function as humans... if you think that is untrue, you are doing a disservice to those you pursue sexually. Your sexual "conquests" are not truly validated if you do not consider your "conquests" equals.

Long story short.... as an engineer... 5 stars. Artistically and in an engineering context. The skill it took to get the skinny-legged elephants to stand under their own power is impressive.

/I hope this old man was able to impart a lesson on how older people think about the interaction between the sexes.

sweet-daddy-2: Looks like Star Wars shot in Bolywood. Not being an art critic I would  highly recommend this be auctioned at Christies for an exorbitant sum of money. You may thank me by adding  a photo of yourself ( indecently clad ) to your profile. Another five votes to be added tomorrow after your profile change.



This cracked me up.  Thanks so much everyone!
