I hesitate even to start guessing... The kid seems puzzled, too.
UPDATE: this seems to be very early X-ray machine, used to take chest x-rays of infants.

My guess for the mystery picture would be an X-Ray machine. Pretty scary too.

Your "Cat's rapture" picture is originally an internet meme called longcat, it's real name is "Nobiiru" (のび〜る, meaning "streeetch"). There are dozens more photoshopped pictures of this cat.

The owner and original picture can be found at

I like the SimCity 2000-esque Archology. Pretty cool. Pretty scary, too. I don't know if I'd feel comfortable living in something like that. Looks like it would be neat, but dangerous, too.
