Well I'll be damned!
If you carefully look at images, even if they are over 100 years old, you can find the darnedest things! Just look at this one for instance. San Francisco just after the 1906 earthquake. At first your eye is drawn to the devastation below the (tethered?) balloon. But when you look at the sky you see something very strange. Something is free flying there! In 1906! And it's not a balloon!
So what's going on there? It looks like a kind of flying house from the wizard of oz!

Could it have been God enjoying his handiwork from His UFO?

RE: Well I'll be damned!
anyone else disappointed that this thread didn't have some reference to some damn (as in powerplant variety or even beaver variety)?

The title was perfect for it.

I don't talk gay, I don't walk gay, it's like people don't even know I'm gay unless I'm blowing them.

RE: Well I'll be damned!
Wait a minute. Are you suggesting the image is photoshopped??

What's wrong with you??? Of course it isn't!!

There was no Photoshop in 1906!!

RE: Well I'll be damned!
I guess you could file the following under Derailment, although I'd prefer to think of it as Thought Association:

When I saw the thread title, I was reminded of an old book I have called Thank You for the Giant Sea Tortoise, which gives the results of select New York Magazine reader competitions. The book's title was a winning entry in a competition involving "unseemly greeting cards for unlikely occasions." Readers were asked to supply greeting card messages for odd occasions.

And another winner was:

"Well, I'll Be Damned, You Were Excommunicated!"

Some of my other favorites:

"So You've Been Chosen Thane of Cawdor!"

"Watched Your Smoke! Now You're Pope! Congrats!"

"Sorry to Hear About Your Allergy to Paper Products"

"Congratulations on Becoming a Spy!"

"So You've Had a Pre-Frontal Lobotomy!"

"Congratulations on Having Your Charge Reduced to Simple Assault"

"Congratulations to My Son on His Resurrection"

"All of Us Here on the Estate Wish You a Speedy Recovery, Uncle"

"Hats Off to Your New Hairpiece!"

Religious disputes are like arguments in a madhouse over which inmate really is Napoleon.

A derailment and a literature lesson. Nice job! Tongue

Well played good sir, well played indeed. Drinking Beverage

You can have 5 points for that.
