"Disney’s ‘Captain Marvel’ accidentally advertises phone sex line":

Image


Well, you cannot see it in the above because all current versions of this pic had the blurry but readable phone number on the back wall of the phone booth Photoshopped out.

That phone number had been used by ABC in their cable show "The Suite Life of Zac and Cody". If you called it back then there were changing messages about kids programming on ABC. Apparently it had gotten onto a list of "approved" phone numbers in ABC which then got handed up to Disney.

But at some point between then and now ABC stopped paying for that number, and it was taken over by a phone sex line.


my first thought was, "phone sex is still a thing?"

They might have split up or they might have capsized,
They may have broke deep and took water...

is that real? how did a lot of people looking at that did not crash?

I understand the long exposure makes the traffic look worse than it was, but still, someone must have noticed a space shuttle on the overpass (strong well built overpass).

I loved my Speccy. I had the original 48k rubber-keyed version and the ZX Spectrum 128k (precursor to the +2 pictured). :)

Yes, that did happen over October 12-13, 2012 (well, the above was on the night of the 12th). On September 21st Endeavour was flown on the NASA 747 transport from Edwards Air Force Base in the Mojave Desert north of LA doing a number of low-level photographic passes over various sites around California before landing at LAX.

To get to the California Science Center (just south of downtown LA and is about 15 miles via road from LAX) where Endeavour is now on display in its own building, the shuttle spent part of two days on the road including using that overpass over the 405 which is the freeway in your animation.

Here are some beauty shots over LA during Endeavour's last flight, and here are some pics of Endeavour on the road.
And please: "how did a lot of people looking at that did not crash?"? Folks in LA take driving SERIOUSLY. :lol:

Be sure to check out this by the guy who made that combo. He learned about this from the guy who made these.

Both links are at my link but you might miss them if you just look at the other examples.

It's also very unimaginative. I'd at least try to figure out how to encase a solid diamond core into a platinum ring so that the light refracts through little exposed diamond protrusions all the way around.

Um, you're missing the point which was to make a ring that is literally ONLY diamond.

ARIA is the Advanced Rapid Imaging and Analysis project at JPL.

"The color variation from yellow to red indicates increasing ground surface change, or damage." These pictures are from November 11th.

The red polygon in the first is an area which is about 50 miles by 25 miles (80 km by 40 km). That in the second is about 55 miles by 48 miles (88 km by 77 km).

I believe jewelry is stupid. That ring can never be resized so it won't fit everybody. It's good only to store in a safe. Cutting it up into traditional shaped diamonds that would be easier to sell would be a waste.

Is it real diamond or man made? I didn't read the article. Not that it would make a difference to me.

If you want to invest in valuable rocks to store in a safe, buy gold.
