Post Your Single Most Influental Picture

Tue Mar 11, 2003 7:03 am

I would like for people to post the "ONE" photo that stirs up the most emotions in them. This picture will represent some influential event, person or object.

This is the most depressing I remember. It's stomach-churning:

It just saddens me, no strong feelings by the way.

The airplane hitting the second tower sends chills down my spine, it makes me recall watching the 2nd plane hit on live TV.

An other saddest moment on that day was when the second tower collapsed. The first was already gone, I was hoping the second would stay and no more desaster would struck. But then... all those dust fountains coming out of the windows below the plunging upper stories, resembling all the people's last breathes, the dust covering everything like a pall...

Great pictures 777236ER.

The picture of earth at night really makes you think about how much energy we are actually using.

Cool photos. I was pleasantly surprised that I could see my tiny island of Trinidad (off the coast of Venezuela) in the daytime pic. And yes... The night time pic does make one reflect on the resources that some countries consume. What was even more surprising (to me) was that India was more lit up than Australia.

777236ER, I loved BOTH images....BUT

I havea scientific question. How can the ENTIRE earth be EXPERIENCING "nighttime" at the same time?? Are those pictures actually composites??

Just wondering. I mean, its dark here but sunny in Syndey right now.

This was one of the most influential events I ever experienced:


Photo: Bruno Toic

Slovenia's independence in June 1991 (I was there). The next day, an armed conflict broke out, but it was over within ten days. Slovenia won, becoming a peaceful, prosperous nation; it, along with nine other nations, will join the EU in 2004.

BTW, check out North and South Korea on that wonderful nighttime composite shot 777236ER posted; a remarkable contrast, isn't it?

Mirrodie, it'll be a composite picture. Lots (and lots) of photos would have been put together to make both those photos see above.

(It would also explain why there is no cloud.)

Is there life elsewhere other than on earth? With galaxies like this out there, there's sure to be another single planet with intelligent life out there. At least I'd hope so.

Please take a nice long look. Study it carefully. Put yourself in their shoes for just a moment. Try to imagine it!




This one goes out to all of you people who call our president a warmongering moron! Never forget, this is why our president is going against the worlds oppinion on what we should or should not do to prevent more visions like the one above from happening again!!! Had this never happend, the giant would still be resting as it once did!

Yeah, nice one. Bring politics into this thread why don't you?

How did Saddam Hussain have anything to do with September 11th? Even Bush said he didn't cause, or help it. A war on Iraq will only spawn more angry teenagers willing to take their lives and others against the "evil US."

Ohh im sorry, 777236ER, I forgot people like to jump to conclusions! I didnt say Iraq was responsible for 9/11, I feel Iraq has potential to cause an attack like 9/11. Obviously 9/11 was a wake up call to Bush that there are people out there who are willing and able to kill us. But ohwell, what do you care? You have the atittude that it is impossible for another attack to occur, or god forbid, Iraq is behind an attack in the future!

"A war on Iraq will only spawn more angry teenagers willing to take their lives and others against the "evil US."

Really?? Well, please tell, who did we attack before 9/11 to piss the angry teenagers off then? We are damned if we do attack, damned if we dont. I rather give an effort in preventing than sitting on my ass like a vast majority care to do!

"Yeah, nice one. Bring politics into this thread why don't you?"

Ohh yeah, by the way, if you want to bash people for bringing politics into the thread, go piss on JCS for his introduction of politics in the matter!

Ok enough trying to talk sense here, I gota pack for my trip to Sydney. Hmmm, if I think of the pissy atittudes when I am laying out on Bondi beach, sucking a few cold ones down, maybe I will raise my drink for those still battling it out on the forums! Seeya in 9 days!

And yes... The night time pic does make one reflect on the resources that some countries consume. What was even more surprising (to me) was that India was more lit up than Australia.

It's a matter of population density. If you took the brightness of Australia's populated coastal areas and extrapolated it throughout the continent, Australia would be very bright indeed.
It does appear, however, that electrification must be significantly more advanced in India than in most other poorer nations. I'd also say that the most remarkable "feature" on the map is the Nile valley in Egypt.

The idea is to keep him from being affiliated with October 12th...or any other date, for that matter.

No the old man is dead. He was the fire chief and the 1st person to officially die at the WTC.
