    Because even after the house is washed away, the owner still has to pay back the loan. Unless they’re part of a disenfranchised minority. Then the government picks up the tab. 


    Lots of other scenarios here that all end with the government picking up the tab. Maybe it’s the insurance companies, who pass the cost on to their customers. And when they can't, the government picks up the tab...

    Okay the cat has got his right arm tucked underneath his chest. Fine. But what's that laying on the floor that looks like his front leg?


    I get the others - the long come of the pine cone, the coffee cup lid and the shadow. But what's that thing by the cat? :blink:

    Thank you, I was wondering the same.

    Two words, "Air Bags."  

    Not uncommon, at least around here.  Low riders at rest can have less than an inch of clearance,  some, on the road only have 3 or 4 inches.
    Guy I used to work with did this:



    I’m talking about the excessive length of the car and the one behind it. I believe the image has been stretched horizontally and compressed a bit vertically.

    Oh it's definitely cool. I just don't think that it's the real deal. Keep posting.

    Don’t know how old you are, but back in the day of film projectors, we did that by running the film in reverse. Actually, it goes back to the days of Charlie Chaplin. One of the earliest special effects.

    I got a better question. Why is Linus wearing glasses?

    There was a series of strips back then built around Linus having amblyopia (lazy eye) and needing corrective glasses.  Lots of vision/glasses gags. 

    I am unashamedly a Peanuts freak, which is why I know that. :)

    mountainairhead029.thumb.jpg.9f6ff4b743cb33e170ec3cc6ef552618.jpgPeople ride  bikes for different reasons.  I loved to travel and explore new places.  An old air cooled BMW was my mode of travel.   My best ride I had was left Ohio and headed west by myself.  Three weeks later I got home on Friday time to go to work on Monday,  Here is my BMW riding Bear Tooth Pass highway.  Gave up about 10 years ago too many crazy drivers and my reflexes slowed down.



    Loved those Beemers!

    I had no idea he wore a red coat. I thought it was blue.


    But then, we had black and white television until I was in high school.

    It probably wouldn't have shown up as well on B&W TV if it was blue. In those days, the laundry soap commercials used powder blue shirts because they looked "whiter than white" on TV.
