I think this is a great idea. Unfortunately, I get 'generic errors' whenever I try to search for anything.

when I clicked on 'register' I get a warning that the certificates don't match. I don't think NG is trying to rip me off, it just seems odd for them to have a less than polished web site.

Or is it just me?

URL on link is, certificate is issued to if you modify the URL the warning goes away. Simple yet stupid mistake.

I always will fondly remember nights under the sheets with the National Geographic for images like this:

I tried to register (it's free!) and it generated and error about the URL field not being filled in. I didn't see a URL field on the screen (plus it had erased all the crap I already filled in) so I gave up.

I love NG, and photography, but don't feel like messing around with this website today. Sigh.

NGIS for boobies​solution

I too remember getting my first prepubecent twinges from looking at all of the exposed native breasticles in National Geographic.

Sweaty, dusty, fly-caked, African boobies. Mmmm....

I did a boolean search for "Dead AND Horse" and it returned a picture of a campfire.

I did another search for "bikini" and it returned pictures of fish.

The search for "apples" worked though.

Nat'l Geographic photographers rock. That's on my list of dream jobs.

Numberz, you don't need to register to search/browse.

2002-11-27 03:30:50 PM

old man to kid: `Back in my day we didn't have porn. We had National Geographic'

kid to old man: `You got wood looking at those slinky-tits? Man, you're life sucked'
2002-11-27 03:35:33 PM

2002-11-27 03:42:52 PM  
EverStoned... get that hair outta yer ass. GettyImages are low dpi watermarked images.
2002-11-27 03:43:49 PM  
National Geographic always makes me think of Ellen Cleghorne's stand-up routine.

"How come when they show a white woman's boobies, they call it pornography. But when they show a black woman's boobies it becomes anthropology?!"
2002-11-27 03:43:50 PM  
Hehehe, Prof_frink, I was just working on that.
2002-11-27 03:46:55 PM

2002-11-27 03:48:49 PM  
National Geographic has placed their image collection online. Fark Photoshops surrender

2002-11-27 03:49:04 PM  
Doesn't the RIAA have a rule against this?
2002-11-27 03:49:56 PM  
It's you

2002-11-27 04:04:18 PM  
I_Can't_Believe_It's_Not_Smegma, that is one of the sickest, yet funniest screen names ever.

2002-11-27 04:06:55 PM  
Still don't see anything there that compares to this.

I can't take my eyes off her. Damn. That SbB ad is driving me to DISTRACTION!
2002-11-27 04:07:55 PM  
A personal plug: That really fameous picture of the woman in the red burkah-thingy was taken by the brother of my 6th grade teacher. I have actually seen a print of that pic taken from the original negative.
2002-11-27 04:10:40 PM  
HeatMiser yeah, the big tits are nice, but that face needs some work.

Still would hit it though...

For those who said they love artistic photos, check out

Sorry, not much in the way of boobies, however.

Bloody weak-arse servers.

For about a year now, I've been looking for a scanned version of a specific photo that I KNOW appeared in a Natonal Geographic collection, but I've been unable to find it. So now, I just searched for it on that site...And nothing. Then it crashed.

2002-11-27 05:13:37 PM  
Timberbeast: I think you mean, which is a pretty cool site, loads of information, and not afraid of nudes. I think is a better site though, and has a lot of interesting work in it. Look for the link to the "Most controversial" photos for some good stuff.

Couldn't resist.
