Disturbing and unusual pictures

Some of these are facinating, some are disturbing, all tell a story.

Got some interesting pics from Honda tech, on this theme, add some more!

Note: because of the massive bandwidth used (over 50gig in the last week) I moved these pics to http://www.flickr.com/photo... and linked them back to the site.

Some scared animals there ... yet a beautiful pic

Thanks to Biogeek on Redit for the origin of this picture.

This awsome picture was taken in the Bitterroot National Forest in Montana on August 6, 2000 by a fire behavior analyst from Fairbanks, Alaska by the name of John McColgan with a Digital camera.

On 6 August 2000, as several fires converged in the Sula in western Montana, John McColgan, a fire behavior analyst in the employ of the USDA Forest Service snapped the spectacular photograph shown above with a digital camera. As McColgan described the experience to a writer for the Western Montana newspaper

... Quote:
That's a once-in-a-lifetime look there. I just happened to be in the right place at the right time. I've been doing this for 20 years and it ranks in the top three days of fire behavior I've seen.


"They know where to go, where their safe zones are," McColgan said. "A lot of wildlife did get driven down there to the river. There were some bighorn sheep there. A small deer was standing right underneath me, under the bridge."

McColgan snapped the photo with a Kodak DC280 digital camera. Since he was working as a Forest Service firefighter, the shot is public property and cannot be sold or used for commercial purposes

Don't know origin of this but he must have been in there a while from the look of his hands

edit: BNoble found the origin of this picture, and its very tragic. I would have removed it ,but seeing its been here for so long I figured to leave it with an explanation...

Omayra Sanchez (the girl pictured) was 12 years old at the time and lived with her parents, her brother and an uncle. However, prior to the tragedy, her mother had traveled to Bogotá on business. Omayra could not escape and was trapped under her own home's concrete plaque and debris.

When rescue teams tried to help her, they realized that her legs were trapped. The only feasible option was to pull her out by breaking and ripping her legs off. Omayra remained strong until the last moment of her life. According to people who were by her side during those moments, the little girl wanted to live, saying her only worry was to go back to school.

The people who were trying to save her life begged the pilots of overflying helicopters to get a pump so the water could have been drained out. After two days a pump was delivered, but unfortunately it did not work properly and finally got stuck because of the mud and debris.

A man-made sun rose over Bikini Atoll on March 1, 1954. Seen here from 50 miles away, the 15-megaton hydrogen blast called Bravo ranks as the largest U.S. test, a thousand times greater than the atom bomb dropped on Hiroshima in 1945. here

That picture of the girl trapped in the mud was taken by and copyrighted to Frank Fourier. It depicts Omaira Sánchez, 13, who was trapped with her legs pressed by debris from her own house for three days; she and 23,000 more people died there. It occurred on November 13, 1985 when the eruption of the Nevado del Ruiz volcano produced a huge mudslide in Armero, Colombia (South America).

Details from the photographer of how the picture was obtained can be found at:

OK what is this then?
The text says "It's nuclear warheads re-entering the atmosphere, luckily only testing this time." here and the pic name says they are peacekeepers. But if it really shows missiles entering the atmosphere, then its a stunner of a pic.


Thanks to Lyon on Redit for finding the information about this picture.

LGM-118A Peacekeeper missile system being tested at the Kwajalein Atoll in the Marshall Islands.

The lines shown are the re-entry vehicles -- one Peacekeeper can hold up to 10 nuclear warheads, each independently targeted. Were the warheads armed with a nuclear payload, each would carry with it the explosive power of twenty-five Hiroshima-sized weapons.

As the title for this thread has gone from naf, to inappropriate, are there any suggestions for a description that better meets the contents?

Sfsdfasdf on digg.com has titled them "Must See Images. Very creepy, and/or cool.", any other suggestions?

The picture of that young girl is heart wrenching and as well of that poor little boy,
It really saddens me to see such misery bestowed on innocent kids like that
How cruel and unfair life can be for some people.

That pics shows a MIRV re-entry.

Multiple Independently targetable Re-entry Vehicle, or MIRV is a collection of nuclear weapons carried on a single intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) or a submarine launched ballistic missile (SLBM). Using a MIRV warhead, a single launched missile can strike several targets, or fewer targets redundantly. By contrast a unitary warhead is a single warhead on a single missile.
MIRV Wikipedia article

The US Minuteman 3 is the only US land-based MIRV ICBM currently in use. These MIRV capable ICBM's are especially used because they are harder to counter with anti ballistic missile systems due to number of independent re-entry vehicles in the re-entry phase. True to keeping the world more on edge, the Russians are developing the Bulava(SS-27 class) sea-launched MIRV ICBM. Supposedly the most advanced MIRV ICBM to date and still under development. This is obviously in response to the US Ballistic missile "Shield" that is under development.

Okay enought of this rant, Here is night pic of MIRV re-entry:

I'm not 100% sure, but it kinda looks like Niagara Falls. Maybe some of that ice is spray from the falls. It definitely looks like water on the other side of that wall.

Good point DD I thought it was the sea, but it wouldn't get that cold with sea spray.

Welcome to the board :)

Thanks for the feedback Honey :)
Heres something for you :) A real smile rainbow!

No, this isn't an upside-down rainbow, and the photographer hasn't faked the picture. It's an unusual phenomenon caused by sunlight shining through a thin, invisible screen of tiny ice crystals high in the sky and has nothing at all to do with the rain.

Much more on how it works onSF Gate

I found a website that has this picture on it..It seems to be from Switzerland. http://www.bentbay.dk/ice_w...

And..I just noticed someone else already found that. My bad, but it's a different site..so..have fun with that.
