America vs. The World

The big trouble with dumb bastards is that they are too dumb to believe there is such a thing as being smart. — Kurt Vonnegut, Jr.

Pretty pictures

Camels in the desert.

This photo by George Steinmetz was taken from directly overhead. The black outlines are just the shadows — the actual camels are the small white lines. More information at Snopes.

The pictures below, of microscopic sculptures by Willard Wigen, are also from Snopes.

Carved from grains of rice and sand and made of dust particles and sugar crystals, these sculptures are measured in thousandths of an inch. Most can only be viewed through a microscope. Yes, those are needles and pinheads.
