Snark Shark II: radarlove: Snark Shark II: radarlove: Snark Shark II: Amusement: [ image 573x380]

well that's tasteless, but par for the course on Fark, I guess.

So that one is tasteless, but the actual traumatic photo of a plane about to crash into the WTC is not? Good to know.

/found it both funny and apt

That is actual history happening, like pictures from the Holocaust. However, using that picture and editing it to make a political statement over a tragedy is tasteless.


I guess sometimes taste needs to take a backseat to truth.

or perhaps respect for the dead is better than making a political statement.

Looking back on the way those deaths were used by the government to justify the destruction of liberty and the establishment of a totalitarian police-state, I guess I'd have to agree with you.

Point withdrawn.

Yeah, they are there studying us like we would study an unknown speies of monkeys in the wild.
They are not hostile they would have turned us in hamburger a long ago

ToeKnee666: I saw something I've never seen before on August 25th. Two big spheres floating in the sky above Seattle. Not self illuminated, barely visible against the night sky. I walked and stared, trying to figure out what they were and how they were moving, but they seemed stationary and too high up to be tethered to the ground. Moments later they were no longer there.

I saw something like this once, about thirty years ago.
I was coming home off of the night shift and saw two spheres conjoined off to the North. They didn't seem to be moving. When I got home, I got out my target rifle with the 10x scope and took a good look.
Turns out I was looking at a gigantic weather baloon that was launched from somewhere around Tyler, TX if memory serves. That was like 225 miles away.
They were really bright because of the rising sun's reflection, and I could see the front and back of the baloon because it was made of some clear material.
One engineer dude I worked with in Baytown (another 50 miles South) called a friend of his at a University in Chicago and told him to look at the supernova! Of course they didn't know what in the heck he was talking about.

It's not every month that a scion of the royal family of Kolob gets nominated as a candidate for the presidency of the US.

The smart thing to do would be to admit the existence of these types of craft and study them back.

Yeah, that's the thing that bothers me. These unidentified objects are being observed and photographed all over the world, and yet the big-brained science types are completely ignoring them.

They'd rather send a robotic buick to Mars than study and explain a genuine observable phenomena occurring here on earth. Seems a tad suspicious.

KimNorth: SanjiSasuke: KimNorth: Deman: The one above the Olympic opening ceremony was later to be shown to be a blimp when other people with better cameras started sharing their photos.

The one UFO super being above the Olympic opening ceremony was later to be shown coved up as to be a blimp when other people the Government/military the Illuminatti/Free Masons/Reptillians/Ninjas with better cameras Computers magic started sharing their photos.  mind control.

//fixed it for're welcome ( "'

Fixed that for you.

Nice ( :

Sorry guys, since I'm being watched I can't tell you the truth about the secret visitors it dropped off during the ceremony either.

I found out that the argument "why can't they ever get focused shots given today's technology?" is not really a good one.

Back in May the moon was bigger than usual and I had just baught a new Canon Ti3 - a fairly decent dslr a week before. Since I didn't know how it worked, the first thing I did that night was walk out, turned the camera to Auto, pushed the shutter button half-way down, waited for the beep that signals the auto-focus and took a few shots.

Went upstairs, opened the files in Photoshop and found that all my pics were blurred to the point where the moon was literally just a soft blob on the screen. Wft? This camera is brand new.

I few GISs later I learned that even with today's tech, the cameras are still really bad at taking pics of bright stuff in the sky (especially at night) UNLESS you know what the prerequisite Manual(ISO, Aperture, shutter speed etc.) settings are for taking pics of, for example, the moon. Even then, it's a trail-and-error affair since stuff like light pollution, clouds etc. can still fark up your shots.

The most important part? You have to have the camera on a tripod to cancel out any shake in your hands - the smallest movement will blur the shot completely even if your settings are down pat. And for best results you need to either set the camera timer to close the shutter or use a remote shutter. Also, don't even bother if you don't have a lense bigger than 300mm.

Now, given all of that, unless you're sitting out in an empty field and you have the camera on a tripod, pointing at the right portion of the sky on your lucky farking night, you're not going to get a focused shot of anything, let alone something traveling at any kind of speed.

So to me, it's completely understandable that UFO shots are never in focus.
