^Looks like a picture of 2 unemployed Canadians living in Manitoba ???  But why are they looking away from each other? Is the photographer trying to show some kind of sexual conflict between them, which they are unwilling or unable to resolve?

The one guy has a degree in archaeology. Good for him. Other than that I didn't see anything about them being Canadian or the sexual tension though ...  ???

...as I was surfing the Web, looking at cute "cottage" interiors (don't ask me why), I happened upon this photo!

Excellence of character, then, is a state concerned with choice, lying in a mean relative to us, this being determined by reason and in the way in which the man of practical wisdom would determine it. Now it is a mean between two vices, that which depends on excess and that which depends on defect.

If you're referring to my comment about "Geek Orthodox", I apologize for not including a smiley  :-[

That one is definitely my humour. Most of your pictures have been good - can't say that I've found any that I would label offensive. Some haven't appealed to me, but that's just personal taste. I know you're not out to offend. And I do thank you for some really good ones.

The most recent photo reminds me of an incident in church where the reader said "to the Jews and the geeks"  :o I thought I may have misheard, but then noticed an altar boy trying almost unsuccessfully to stifle his laughter  :D. Just about lost it then.

"Romanian orthodox priests follow the relics of Saint Andrew’s head in Bucharest, Romania, backdropped by the Romanian parliament building, the world’s largest civilian administrative building, formerly known as the House of the People, built at the request of communist dictator Nicolae Ceausescu. According of the Romanian Orthodox Church Saint Andrew initiated the conversion to Christianity of the ancestors of the Romanian people by preaching in Black Sea bordering eastern Dobrogea province. The head was brought from Greece and is expected to draw large numbers of pilgrims for the annual week-long celebration of the Romanian capital’s patron saint, Saint Dimitrie Bassarabov."
