I’ve got this pic set as my laptop’s wallpaper.  Can you see what’s wrong with it?

Lovely Stuff

I know we’re all supposed to act our age, but this is just priceless:

I just want to know what drugs they were.

Have at it in Comments.

Slim Pickings

Not, as one Reader told me, that this is necessarily A Bad Thing, especially when it comes to the classics:

1935 SS (later Jaguar) 90 Airline

Yvonne Furneaux

And just for the hell of it, a different take on the venerable Ruger 10/22:  a twin-gun mount with a Gatling-style actuator and two 25-round mags:

John Atkinson Grimshaw — Boar Lane, Leeds

I would respectfully suggest that all the above are desirable, for different reasons.
