This is a ship which has just started to flip into a vertical position.
And this is how it ends, in a completely vertical plane.

This is not a CG. This is a real picture of a car in Brazil that was going a little too fast, and ended up smashing through the wall of someone’s house. No-one was badly hurt.

However, the Gregorian calendar has only 365 days in a year, so if we didn’t add a day on February 29 nearly every 4 years, we would lose almost six hours off our calendar every year. After only 100 years, our calendar would be off by approximately 24 days!
How do we calculate Leap Years?
In the Gregorian calendar 3 criteria must be met to be a leap year:
- The year is evenly divisible by 4;
- If the year can be evenly divided by 100, it is NOT a leap year, unless;
- The year is also evenly divisible by 400. Then it is a leap year.

Yes, it is real. A real painting. The artist is just finishing off the final few brushstrokes of his painting, while some spectators are watching his work.
The place is Trafalgar Square in the centre of London.
Autumn/Fall is my favourite time of year.
The changing colours of the leaves look so good.
