    I remember seeing those photos in book when I was about eight-years-old and thinking, "Those are fake as ****! Anyone can see that!" Amazing that Edwardian England believed them utterly. lol, silly uptight Downton Abby twits.

    Fascinating visual trickery, probably a painting made on a pane of glass positioned over the real life subject. Lighting doesn't quite match up, but not bad for a b/w composition since color wasn't invented yet (or widely available), and the visual angle of the drawn angel looking at the human is absolutely perfect.

    I always wondering while hunting if I'd get arrested/fines for running into big foot and killing him. Meh, I'd take the risk.

    "In the early hours of Aug. 20, around 2:30 a.m., another resident said she was walking home when she saw 'a large-figured clown with a blinking nose, standing under a post light near the garbage dumpster area.' ”​

    Was probably Donald Trump preparing his next dumpster fire...

    ...this article may be the first reporting on Trump's nascent GOTV operation.

    If I recall correctly, two little girls on a lark simply cut-out pictures from a children's book, stuck them in the ground and took the pictures. They never expected that the entire UK would be gripped with "fairy fever."

    They'll still vote Dem after they're dead, so only 1/2 the problem is solved.

    Not in Texas. It's perfectly legal to hunt Big Foot in Texas; just get the land owner's permission first.;)

    People in Green Bay, WI were reporting seeing a creepy clown wandering the streets of that city. somebody even got a decent picture of the guy:

    Turns out (for better or worse) it was just a creepy marketing stunt for a movie.

    Two possibilities:


    A John Wayne Gacy fanatic has emerged.

    Donald Trump or Chris Christie are doing "Speak with the Youth" events and going up to young future voters.

    You left Hillary out of this. I can assure you that she is as big of a clown as the other two.
