Washington, DC trip '11

the criminal justice club, to which i'm an active member and officer of, takes a trip to washington, dc each year before graduation for a week. we go down there and check out the monuments/memorials, and we go and check out the numerous police departments (they all try to recruit us/brainwash us). they include: arlington, va pd, capital pd, fbi pd, and the us postal service inspectors.

the trip was very informative and if my mom and dad fucked a month earlier, i could have been eligible for a free civil service test for the arlington police department. (you need to be 21 (to have a concealed weapons permit) by the time you'd finish the academy)

anyways, i took a ton of pictures. i've resized this one (even though it's still wide) but i'll attempt to resize the rest of them (once i upload them) by 1000px width to save your newb monitors.

the stunning briliance of an 18mm wide angle lens. i lol'd when the rest of the club (with p&s's) had to stand further back to get the whole thing in frame. if you don't know, that's the washington monument.


original size

Photobucket was ga and resized so here's another account: http://brontobyte.imgur.com/washington_dc_trip_11

should be able to see all of the pictures. i had to weed out a ton. enjoy.

That's a really awesome picture. When it's shrunk, the picture looks like a drawing, and then when you do zoom in and look at the top of the monument, it still looks like a drawing. :O



Memes gather, and now my watch begins. It shall not end until my death. I shall take no wife, hold no lands, father no children. I shall wear no crowns and win no glory. I shall live and die at my post. I am the sword in the darkness. I am the memer on the walls. I am the shield that guards the realms of memes. I pledge my life and honor to the Meme's Watch, for this meme and all the memes to come.

Monuments really aren't meant to be useful, they're a profound expressions of a society to honor a person or an event that shaped the culture's history.

i shoot all my pictures in "raw" which are an uncompressed version of a .jpg (in short). i just modified, via the tone curve in adobe lightroom, the brightness. i didn't even crop it. i just framed the everything almost perfect, if i don't say so myself. :)

Just here for the pie

Should've taken a picture where you have your crotch right below it so it looks like your genitalia.

We'd need a bigger monument.

Clinton's presidency fits well as a metaphor for this monument.

jjf28 shouted: the map is playable on both 1.16.1 and SC:R, this would just be straight up unprotecting
OK, I have 1 more question - are you using 32 bit SC:R or 64 bit ? In game settings there's an option to switch to 32, is it checked? I just tried hosting the map with 64-bit SC:R and it failed... I ticked the option to use 32 bit SC:R => it worked and map was hosted. So I guess the issue still exists for 64 bit SC:R ? I also tried calling a friend and he couldn't see the map when he entered the lobby. Weird, I might have to report this to Blizzard?
