1. Hey Guest, welcome back to DLP

    As you can see, we've changed our look. We've migrated from vBulletin to the Xenforo forum system. There may be issues or missing functionality, if you find anything or have feedback, please check out the new Xenforo Migration Feedback forum.

    Our dark ("Dark Lord Potter") theme is under heavy development. We also have a light ("Light Lord Potter") theme for those happier with a light background and darker text.

    We've got a funny pictures thread, but we don't have a thread for images that are cool, interesting, or generally made of win.

    Rules:

    No tits (Hottie thread for that).
    Re-size images so they don't stretch the page, as per general DLP rules.
    GIFs are permitted.
    No video embedding without permission from a mod (as per general DLP rules).

    I'll get us started:

    Composition of the human body:

    (I'm slightly tempted to try to calculate the empirical formula of the human body after seeing this).

    Cancer cell after an ultrasound treatment:

    [​IMG]

    Human body done in the style of the London Underground Map:

    Photo-realistic sculpture:

    Good idea for this thread - a home for all the cool pics that aren't quite funny.

    Scrolling down that bridge photo makes me pretty dizzy lol.

    Re: photoshop: so long as it's awesome, it's fine.

    Okay, this one is far to huge to be posted here but also far too large to be resized as all detail will be lost.

    So go here to see it.

    We'd be doing better than Sealand from the start. We'd have fortifications. :D

    I don't get it. It's just a checkered cardboard (?) figurine (with a weird bowtie thing running about two adjacent surfaces). What's the big deal?

    It's an optical illusion. The 'box is only three pieces of card held at angles that make it seem as though it is a full, six sided cube. It's not the most difficult thing in the world to comprehend, dude.
