    SKC-Houston can get a bit intense, speaking from the 2013 cup run experiences.

    Lord Vader, escorted by two storm-troopers, in front of the Greek Parliament.
    Reports claim that he arrived by Imperial Star-destroyer, to give a lecture on the debt crisis.

    No, but it would sure explain a lot of things if it was.

    ^Very cool :thumbsup:

    Of course it would be even cooler if they had used a ragged surface, where the shapes would not be obvious but the water still would show them as intelligible ;)

    July 14th is the 150s anniversary of the first successful Matterhorn ascent.
    The current speed record by Kilian Jornet is 1h 53 min for the ascent and 2h 52 min total. This means he had roughly a climbing speed of 1km/h (altitude not distance)

    Wow, that's kind of insane. Would be deadly to try this at lower altitudes with no oxygen masks.

    It took us 55 minutes to climb up to the Machu Picchu gates and that was basically straight up. We went as fast as we could. I don't think that was even 1km.

    Not that I don't trust these numbers, but 1km/h seems kind of impossible.

    What is hugely cool about this is that those children are in Gaza..

    The above may be an object in a playground. Or a rather ominous arthropod, looking with vibrant dots as eyes and edges of the rope.

    It's a bit skinny to be an arthropod, don't you think?
