    THIS IS AMAZING PHOTOGRAPHY!!! LOOK at the camels in this photo first and then read the message below. Ok, This is a picture taken from aircraft directly above these camels in the desert at sunset. It is considered to be one of the best pictures of the year. Now if you look closely, you can see that the camels are the little white lines in the picture. The black images you see are just the shadows! I think that's cool. :-)

    The famous "camel shadow" picture from National Geographic 2008. You are looking STRAIGHT DOWN from above with the sun low in the sky late in the day. The black camel shapes are the shadows. The camels are the tiny white and tan blobs at the feet of the shadows. Perspective is everything!

I'm pretty sure the man in this story feels like a d**k because now everyone's laughing at his stupidity.

Djibouti, Lake Assal. An Afar camel caravan crossing the salt flats of Lake Assal, as shadows lengthen in the late afternoon. At 509 feet below sea level, Lake Assal is the lowest place in Africa.

This should be a room. Imagine a tiny person dancing in there, and when someone plays the violin, she dances, or the sound of the violin is actually her singing, and she lets the boy who pretends to play it take the credit because he needs to, and she loves him . . .

Taking my fondness for men in uniform to a whole new level. THIS IS MOST EXCELLENT.
