    Holy crap! Is that one of those industrial lasers thats supposed to redirect the huge meteor that supposedly is headed straight towards us?

    If it is... isn't it pointed the wrong way?

    Man.. all this time I thought it was just a myth.

    Nice work. Who bankrolled this baby?

    I hold high esteem, for those with the vision and drive; to take the same kind of stuff that I stumble over, and curse as scrap; transform it to art; and then sell it downtown, for big bucks!

    Thats really cool, I wouldnt mind havin something similar when I have land.
    You could be showin someone around your land and then pass by that out in the middle of nowhere. "whats that?" they'll ask. and I will keep a perfectly straight face and say "dont worry about it"

    But seriously that is cool

    This is one of those death ray machines that, if you were an evil genius, you would use to disintegrate your arch enemy (e.g., Gold Finger vs James Bond). You just need a table to strap down the victim.

    It is actually a light house.. Because they have predicted that in near future the sea will rise several feet! So why not be prepared!

    This picture is a bit suggestive.

    A man who can't weld is as poorly educated as a woman who can't sew
