Really awesome photos. Shame for governments or whoever who probably knows what is happening but allows it. I guess one day we should set on fire to stop all that nonsense around us. Big hug crazy scientist, Tim927 here, not able to log anymore in photoblog and no idea why. Sometimes I get it but it is impossible to comment or to post a photo, so...

No doubt they get greased, as usual.. I'm not back, just saw that I could log with my dad's account so passed by to say hi.. Wish pb worked but I even sent mails to owners but never got a reply.
