The Saturday Picture Show, February 21, 2015

They're not used to ice storms in northern Georgia, but there they were, the middle of this week.  Trees (and power lines) down and winter rolls on.
If you think it's a good idea to buy a '70 Dodge Charger painted up to look like The General Lee from The Dukes of Hazzard, go for it.  You want to be noticed, we assume.  Also, plan on the police noticing you. How long do you think that smile stayed around?
This took place in an office with a lot of technically-minded people...they installed one of those lavatory spigots with a magic eye to see when you want to wash your hands and then dole out 1/2 cup of water.  So, these people, armed only with brains and a 3-D printer, made a simple control to block the magic eye.  So for my birthday this year, I want a drone, and for Christmas, a 3-D printer.
I have a friend who says she loves the smell of coffee and can't stand the taste.  Most of the time, except for Ellis® Coffee, it's too bitter for me.  But the beans and the brewed coffee sure do smell good!
SCUBA divers diving off the coast of Israel found these underwater - 1000 gold coins, about 2,000 years old.  They've been there all this time, and we missed our chance.
What makes Miss P the Best In Show at the Westminster Dog Show?  My money was on the dog that did magic tricks - the Labracadabrador!
Some scientists with way too much time (and research grant money) have concluded that certain breeds of penguins do not like fish.  This way to the salad bar, Percy.
Talk about stanky coffee - these beans are for making Kopi luwak, or civet coffee.  They take these berries, you see, and feed them to the Asian palm civet, which promptly defecates them, at which point they are roasted and ground for your coffee-loving experience.  Please don't think I am kidding.  Mmmmm!  Make mine to go, please!
