    The quality of this pic is horrid but you can at least get an idea of the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel. It was shot with an iPhone under very discreet conditions. There is no photography allowed and they do a very good job of enforcing that policy. When I go back in June, I am going to take my Canon with a wide angle lens and get at least one quality pic. It's not like they will take my camera away.

    This is the center panel and it reflects God and Adam touching fingertips.

    While we were in there some dumbass American kid said, "this place is huge! We should get a football game going on in here", which became an instant catchphrase. Still is like six years later.

    My brother wanted to buy a replica of the Cup of Christ to drink whiskey out of but unfortunately the shop closed by the time we got out. Oh, well. He did end up stealing glassware from nearly every country, though. Beer glasses, shot glasses. All kinds of ****. His luggage was rattling by the time we got back.
    Well, you know what they say. "Wine is fine, but whiskey's quicker."

    MadDog's image reminds me of a trip I went on with the family to Peru about four or five years ago. Not my kind of place to go to, but it's been my mother's dream all her life to go there so we all went. The first day we there we ended up just walking around in Lima, which is a pretty nondescript big city, actually, except that there were armored vehicles in the main square. So we ended up finding this church that said it had catacombs so we went in and took the tour. Fascinating place, paintings that were 300 years old just hanging out in the open. A recreation of the Last Supper with guinea pig as the main course (guinea pig being the national food in Peru).

    Then we went down into the catacombs, where there were no pictures allowed. And maybe this shouldn't have surprised me but it did, but those catacombs were absolutely filled with bones! Bones ****ing everywhere. The last stop on the tour were these chambers, eight or nine of them, each filled with a different kind of bone. So I hung back, had my brother stand guard and snapped this picture:

    They must have been opponents of Peru's right to bear arms laws.

    How did I end up with Matt Kemp, Giancarlo Stanton, Josh Hamilton and Jared Weaver all on the same fantasy team? It almost impossible to be this unlucky.

    Just got done reading some threads that I usually don't look at and that statlerwaldorf is an interesting dude to say the least. Lol I obviously don't agree with his literalist view points but I don't think he's a dummy. He never seems to lose his cool at all. Or maybe I just don't know him that well. Lol.

    He makes cameo appearances in the PoFo, even jumped in here for a few posts so i could go after him like a German Shepherd lunging at someones throat. He has a second account that follows this thread fairly religiously.

    Keep reading and youll see the sexual tension he has for Locke.

    edit: Oh, Cophinphan made a internet meme out of him after this thread:

    Thought I'd post this after Sunday's episode.
