Note, virtually all of the minerals in the gallery require you to do something stupid to make them dangerous.

Wonder how the fiddlesticks that made it to Oklahoma.


Nah. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Holden_Barina

The Barina is a rebadged version of the Chevy Aveo. Somebody with an Aveo probably just bought the lettering and badge on ebay and wanted to be clever.

You see how that badge is hanging over the edge? It's the wrong size. No car manufacturer would do that. (Not the same model year but you get the idea.)

That bumper damage may have been a "well, as long as I'm at it" kind of opportunity. I've been known to get fancy when I have "necessary repairs" as an excuse.

A counterfeit Holden, amazing.

This Astronomy Picture of the Day notes that the predicted track on the ground was only 40 meters wide, and the videographer was lucky that his 42-frames/sec happened to get one with the ISS directly over the disc of Saturn.

Grumph. It turns out that this picture was a composite of separate images of Saturn and the ISS. Some folks did some analyses and there were some considerable problems with the original claims made by the videographer:
1) at the time of the transit the ISS should have been about twice as big as Saturn and certainly should NOT have fit inside the disk of Saturn, and
2) the time of the transit was actually AFTER the Sun had risen, so both objects should have been considerably less distinct in a blue sky that should NOT have been the deep black that was shown, and
3) the site that was claimed to have been used was clouded over at the time of the transit.

The videographer has taken down the image and the Astronomy Picture of the Day has removed it from its archives (which is why the above link no longer goes to the Saturn transit pic).

Those look like old style ceramic telephone pole insulators, the kind screwed onto threaded wooden pegs on telephone pole cross beams. The black tube looks like new fangled nylon braid tubing laying across the insulators.

The combined image somehow reminds me of the Hyperloop designs for no good reason.

Because of the many animated GIFs, I keep on expecting that pic to do SOMETHING.
