Talk about everything else besides Stratovarius here in English. Please try to put more serious topics here, and silly topics in the Spam section.

World Press Photo

Post by Equinox » Wed Feb 28, 2007 7:22 pm

In a world where Survivor topics flood the Other Discussion In English part of the forum [instead of spam :x ], I give you this interesting website with lots of pics that some of you might have already seen, or probably will find fascinating.

http://www.worldpressphoto.com/

If you want, choose ur pic and tell us the year. [Can't post it here, since is...well, you try.]

1963. Incredible how a man can do such thing, without moving, without crying out of pain...wow.

Yah, I also dislike these Survivor topics. They really have nothing to do with Stratovarius Discussion or Other Discussion In English. :?

But they are very instructive about people's tastes! :D

Moreover, there is already a Stratovarius part on this forum! If some people dislike Survivors games, so they have simply to ignore them! :wink:

I have nothing against survivors, I just can't understand their fascination. Who gives a damn which album wins?

The only thing that pisses me off is that all the (IMO) interesting topics are not so active. :)

I don't have a problem with those games in general. But they are Spam. And there is a section for spam. They belong there.

Wait until Bush makes a move on Iran(maybe), or closer to the 2008 election, then you'll see some action! :D Or another stock market dive!

Oh yeah, the topic. I like photos and visual art in general. I studied art history for... well, only few months hehe.

I'll take a look at the site when I have more time.

This pic made a shocking impression on me, even as a little girl. A South Vietnamese policeman arrests a Viet Cong&proceeds to blow his brains out on a street corner in front of everyone.

These photos are sad and many of them very iconic. 1980 is crushing, the viewer is speard from seeing the full horror.
