All the best pictures with all the weird captions from all the great stories. Have I said it enough?
Don’t Worry, I’ve Got This
This is a photo of a Pakistan Military Rescue Mission pilot carrying a man who appears to be a flood victim taken to a rescue helicopter. The soldier looked so cool in this picture with his red fluffy beard and his military suit. I almost thought of him as a character in an arcade or a Utopian guy in the 80′s.
Raise Your Hands If You’ve Got A Private Island
This man in maroon is waving to a helicopter and asks for help and relief goods after surviving one of the great unexpected floods in the Rajanpur, district of Pakistan’s Punjab province. Only him and his livestock were saved and that’s about it.
Okay, this might–probably not, be the cutest picture that I have seen. And I could have thought of a better caption on this one like “When Camaraderie Goes Wrong” or “Dude, gimme your grapes”. Alas, I thought that the original caption is good enough. And what is up with grapes?
A Challenger Appears
This is a photo of a horse rider handling a wooden pole of some sort and gallops alongside a pack of cyclists during the 18th stage of the Tour de France. The caption is 8-bit, Arcade-ish, and fun. I imagine Scott Pilgrim’s flag hanging on the end of his wooden pole while the horse rider challenges the bikers to a joust.
No caption is as obvious as this one. This is a photo of a pool that floats in the river Spree in Berlin. With all those gorgeous women on bikinis, I think you get the idea. All hail, the beautiful caption.
I’ts Raining Men
This one’s a classic. Paratroopers from Allied forces, the United Nations–primarily the United States and Britain, are parascending from the sky to provide military support for South Korea during the “Forgotten War” in June 25, 1950. The Forgotten War was about the Japanese military trying to occupy Korea. After WWII, Korea was divided in two by the Allied Forces. South Korea was administered by the U.S. and North Korea by the Soviet Union in Russia. This was a rain that spelled “Bad News” to the Japanese military forces that time.
They Hate Us For Our Freedom
Our Afghan homeboys, with ages ranging from 16 to 20–good enough to handle an AK-47, lift up their shirts for U.S. Marines to prove that they are unarmed. These boys were summoned to come forth from a tree line by 1st Infantry Regiment of the 5th Stryker Brigade in Afghanistan’s Kandahar province. Many of the Afghan civilians were converted by terrorists to fight against the United States while most of them chose no to.
The World’s Most Expensive Oil Painting
An oil painted not on canvass, but on the waters of Chandeleur Sound, Louisiana. The Deepwater Horizon oil rig exploded in the Gulf of Mexico and sank while carrying an estimate of 5,000 barrels of oil–and probably more. When I found out that there are visible damages to the shoreline and dead sea creatures appeared caused by the oil spill, I felt that this picture is a sick masterpiece.
Atlantis, a space shuttle at the Kennedy Space Center in Cape Canaveral, Florida lifts off for the last time. Atlantis was first launched in October of 1985 and is one of the final three remaining missions left in NASA’s Shuttle program. Its mission is to deliver an Integrated Cargo Carrier and a Russian-built Mini Research Module to the International Space Station beyond the Earth’s stratosphere.
