Cracked.com ^ | 8/19/08 | Joe Russo

Posted on 08/19/2008 1:39:15 PM PDT by Slings and Arrows

It's hard to be amazed by anything you see online, when you know any teenager with a computer and a pirated copy of Photoshop can cobble together a fake photograph in minutes.

Unfortunately this means there's a whole bunch of jaw-dropping pics that the internet declared "FAKE!" the moment they appeared. But as it turns out, some of the most baffling of them are, in fact, real.

Nice to see that there's still some wonder left in the world.

Not much... Her arms are way too close to her body for that.

That’s a Maine Coon Cat, IIRC. They are Big Freakin’ Cats.

Yep. I think the explanation might be out on Snopes, but that’s a very short woman and a big fluffy Maine Coon, not Photoshopped. One of my two Maine Coons isn’t too much smaller than that, and he’s actually maybe a little fatter (about 29 pounds).

Okay, I do not suffer from a fear of heights, but playing tennis on the Dubai Tower (Burj Dubai) would give me the willies.



(By the way, would not the wind currents at that altitude make it nearly impossible to play?)

Judging by the windsock in the photo, there is hardly any wind at all.

I work right next door to the "Inversion House". That is the old building for The Art League of Houston. As they were getting ready to tear down that building, they decided to make an "art object" out of it, and as they took off the wood siding, they used it to construct that vortex-looking thingie. If you could see the sides of the house, you'd see the bare wood with no siding.
Here's a shot I took of it before they tore it down:

It is now a metal building, and there is a coffee house in the building called Inversion Coffee House in tribute the the "Inversion House".

A fawn followed this beagle home -- right through the doggie door -- in the Bittinger, MD area.

The owner came home to find the visitor had made himself right at home.

One person appears to be floating in air off on the right side of the picture. I guess he's the one that chases down the balls.

Awwww........How cute.

Early this spring, I watched a doe give birth to twin fawns from my back deck. We keep a water trough for all the wild animals behind our house. That is where she dropped the fawns. It was beautiful.....and made me cry.
