    My favourite:


    Trench warfare during WWI
  • Yes, I thought that was a good one too.

    This is not real. I saw somewhere a while ago that it's fake 
    Ephesians 6:12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

    Probably!

  • Grasshoppers that size would need their own airport!

  • I once read somewhere that because insects absorb oxygen differently (they don't have lungs), they are limited in how large they can grow.  Millions of years ago, when the atmosphere had a much higher oxygen content, insects grew up to 2 feet in size.  That doesn't happen anymore.

  • Cane toads grow oversize in the N.T. because they are omnivorous.  There is so much diversity of wildlife in the N.T. that they're increasing in food source and size.  This is similar to feral cats there who grow quite sizeable. Have seen one that just lay on the road and hissed at a 4x4 drive I was in driving to Litchfield Station.

    This is true.

    There are a couple of fake/hoax photos in the mix, but I think most of them are authentic.
  • So fake news and photos aren't new!  When one realises that the word NEWS originally stood for North East West South, there's nothing to indicate that news has to be "The Truth" as it's not a courtroom where one has to swear to tell the truth and nothing but...  Is there a sort of Hypocritic Hypocratic Oath for Journalists at all or is it simply a free for all?

  • Journalistic integrity isn't integral to journalism.

    When I think about it, it wouldn't be possible for grasshoppers to get that big, because there wouldn't just be one of them, but thousands upon thousands of them. That many micro-wave sized creatures flying about and landing on things would make moving around for human beings quite interesting.
