    So many good bad pictures I can't decide! I think I'll have to come back and choose later.

    Coming from the north of England there is only one choice for you :wink:

    I went for 0TheSwerve0's picture for its ghostly quality.

    I chose turbo's picture. It looks like a stupid twig messed up his focus on what might have been a rather good shot. It is the bad picture that was just a macroscopic event from being good.

    I chose physarrista's picture, at least partly because tongue rolling is an interesting subject.

    Did you know you can have identical twins - one of which can roll their tongues while the other can't? While tongue rolling is definitely heredity linked, it's not all that clear what specifically turns on or off the ability to roll your tongue.

    I think I'm going with Ba. That would have been a bad photo even if it was in focus. :biggrin:

    Isn't that a scene from the movie ET, or the series, Taken? :biggrin:

    Gotta go with Zapper for the Spielbergest quality of the shot.

    Zz's is just too funny, an awe inspired crowd looking into a moment of sheer Disney ecstacy.

    I'm sure they all have glazed eyes, and euphoric smiles on their faces.

    Could be a scene from The 4400 as well - that is, The Disney 4400.

    Reminds me of Frank Zappa on one of tunes - "God. It's God! I see God!"


    Yeah. Along those lines, are we supposed to vote for the best one or the worst, and if it's the worst is it the best or vice versa? :biggrin:

    It can't get any closer than this! Two pictures are neck and neck vying for the worst or best bad picture! Every vote counts!!

    So vote early and vote often!

    Ooops.. I forget. This is not Chicago election.

    I agree. It's bad for a reason -- it's even a physics reason at that! :approve:

    Zz's picture more reminded me of those old 1960's reels of nuke tests.
