Aah... The Good Life -










Exciting pasttimes, too :)
(don't worry, it's Photoshop)



UPDATE: The picture above is actually not a Photoshop job (thanks Eric Luttrell). According to this link, "In fact, it was taken in October 1978, as the Big E was leaving the Philippines... and this was seen as an acceptable way to get rid of an old, no longer needed car."

This one is certainly Photoshop:

The car on the carrier wasnt photoshopped, it didnt have anything in it either, its was a demonstration of the 'new' nuclear / steam powered catapult system.

the picture of the korean military woman on skates remindet me, that the frech police in paris does have a skate-squad.
a picture can be found here: http://cucinatestarossa.blogs.com/photos/uncategorized/police_rollerblades.jpg

the members of this skate-squad are former ice-hockey players. so its not the most intelligent act to piss those guys off. =)

but i must admit that i never have seen them by myself. i have been only once to paris for 24 hours, tho. ~=)

The Jumping tank and the sleeping artillery guy are Israeli too (besides the Israeli sniper girl).

The pictures showing the car catapulted from the carrier reminds me of an old british "Top Gear" episode.

Photos of the "Russian Police" - is in most parts of Photoshop. Photo 9 and the last - this is not the police. are people in completely different clothes.
Part of the picture - not the police, cadets are novices.

What's that "the hotter you are..." vehicle? Heat-seeking missile launcher or firefighting equipment?

Here is a link to a funny military video. Some soldiers remade a music video in their downtime in the field
