The Iron Sheik!
"Do not tempt the Mor thy Mod."

Mor no longer posts on OCNet.  He follows threads, posts his responses daily, occasionally starts threads, and responds to private messages when and as he wants.  But he really isn't around anymore.

I have only hazy memories of the Iron Sheik from when I was a kid, but I will always remember him because of promos/interviews I've heard when I was older, in which he threatens to punish or hurt people through [graphic sexual references].  :o :police:

Conquer evil men by your gentle kindness, and make zealous men wonder at your goodness. Put the lover of legality to shame by your compassion. With the afflicted be afflicted in mind. Love all men, but keep distant from all men.

Cute theme of picture-taking:  Recreating childhood pictures:

http://anygag.com/2013/11/12/photos/1384226433/

My favorites are the Father feeding son milk/beer and the Superman brothers with the expression in their faces
Vain existence can never exist, for "unless the LORD builds the house, the builders labor in vain." (Psalm 127)

If the faith is unchanged and rock solid, then the gates of Hades never prevailed in the end.

Those recreations were fun.
Psalm 37:23 The Lord guides a man safely in the way he should go.

Prov. 3: 5-6 Trust in the Lord with all your heart, lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will direct your paths.

Is this a "faked" photo?

I have a hard time saying whether it is a real alligator, because it is hard to think someone would be that stupid to pose this way. But it overall looks real.

There are five things that make me think it is fake and two that make me think it is real.
The "faked" reasons are:
1. You would have to be a moron to put your head in the jaws of a live alligator. Their jaws are hard for even alligators to open again and their brains are the size of peas, so it is not like you have a secure friendship with them. But then again there are a ton of morons.

2. The tongue looks like it strangely st cut across the middle.

3. The cordon of the rope fence has way too much space to stop an alligator and it looks like there is a parking area with a car in the upper left corner.

4. The jaws are not closed onto the head from above, and it seems like a real alligator would close the jaws. But then again the trainer might not want him to.

5. The trainer has a faked surprise expression, but a real trainer should not want to pose with fake surprise positions because acting surprised can surprise animals too and make them act unexpectedly.

The "not faked" reasons are:

1. The guy is dressed like a nature person or trainer, so it seems like he would be specialized in dealing with animals and it seems like too much of a coincidence that such a person, as opposed to a random tourist in a faked photo, would be doing this.

2. It looks like a real alligator overall.

What do you think?
