... And "aggregators" only linking to paywalled stuff. Slashdot has been notorious for this for ages. But the joke for Slashdot is no one reads the articles anyway!

I'm confused -
there's no problem adding PDF files to posts - or is it too big?
Is there a link to a site with the photos?

Had previously tried two different file types that weren't on the list.
.pdf link seems to be doing okay, hope you enjoy! Wink

Seals are mysteriously sexually assaulting penguins — and eating them (warning: graphical and NSFW). Interesting read.

Quote
While all of these attacks resulted in penguin injury, in perhaps the most horrific case, the seal gave up copulating with the penguin after 826 anguishing minutes in order to kill and eat the poor creature.

Dantheman's PDF was only 3.66MB when downloaded, but my reformatted for easier browsing version is 7.56MB, so I am going to try uploading the zipped .odt version which is 3.63MB in size and see if DC will take it. The pictures in my version are all full size when you copy and paste them into a image viewer. I used Irfanview and LIbre Office Writer in making it. I suppose I could have exported to .pdf at a lesser resolution, but this seems to be the best compromise to get it in here.

That is brilliant. Riffs on these costumes and theme will be the next big thing for cosplayers.  Thmbsup Thmbsup

I would have put Iron Man in enamelled Milanese armor however, and the Joker in a more jester-like costume. Cool

I thought The Post’s use of a “Star Wars” movie creation, an Imperial Star Destroyer, to show the relational size of the comet on which the Rosetta mission’s lander, Philae, set down was hilarious [“On comet, space explorers aim to break new ground,”http://apps.washingtonpos...ta-a-comet-up-close/1450/ ]. Fortunately for the European Space Agency and the Rebel Alliance, no Imperial Star Destroyer showed up during the landing to thwart their plan to use the comet as a secret hideout for the rebels.
Obviously, the Force is with the mission.

I liked the Star Wars reference so much I added another Imperial ship to the graphic. The Super Star Destroyer is nowhere near the largest Imperial ship(excluding mention of the Death Stars, of which the first was 160 kilometers in diameter). I got the Super Star Destroyer from the deviantArt chart.
