Snake Fence

Tony Acevedo strolled out into his backyard to find this snake in a fence with a bird in it's mouth. No idea how the snake caught it.

These are some great pictures, but that snake with the bird in its mouth is really cool.

The plane, i believe its a training plane for something like a terrorist attack or even just emergency. So the military and emergency services can practice their responce.

There is one of these at an air force base in my part of the world.

(Perth, Western Australia)

Looks like some sort of emergency and anti terrorist training, cut off wings and only two engines are probably to make it easier to store. Might also be the reason why they took the tail or perhaps it was used on another airplane?

I think the plane was made for a movie....

That strange plane... it says "EMU Airlines". I found an "EMU Airways" on Google, but said nothing about antiterrorist tours.

Aircraft looks to be a 747 SP with its wings clipped.

Maybe it's the plane from the last James Bond "Casino Royale" - it looked something like this.

Anonymous, I think you missed the point of the donkey. He is holding a cell phone. :-) Of course it is photoshopped.

Yeah New York State still uses those decidedly low-tech voting machines -- I feel better with them than with any computer you can hack in 10 minutes!
