    Do you feel any competition with that other guy starting picture threads? If you do, I suggest a chest off. Ladies ( and some men ) will judge.

    Hey my interesting pics thread got about 1,100 replies. I was good once upon a time :snicker:

    http://www.dawgshed.com/threads/interesting-pictures.106218/


    No, not at all. Everyone post away. @Fornicator is awesome! I have about 4-5 threads at a time saved on my computer with pics I find for this site. Just trying to have fun posting and adding to the site. If someone wants to post or has better stuff, then by all means go ahead and post away. I've gotten shit from some posters telling me that others have said I tell people to give apologies when posting historical threads, but I HAVE NEVER ONCE. That's insane haha. Everyone here is awesome and has awesome posts.

    Maybe this will be my retirement thread. :snicker:

    Lincoln was kind of a badass, he was a great wrestler before he was president. he learned it from his mother who used to beat every guy who came through their town

    I agree. And we have threesomes and Donald Trump news 24/7.
    I just screen capped the second pic. My daughter in third year at university, insisted on finding her own house this year. I swear that's the exact house. When we pulled up my husband started singing bun duh duh dah.... Sanford and son style. I emailed that out as "-" new house. I find it hysterical. She finally admitted its a shit hole. 2,000 a month for a 100 yr old house. Only in a college town. Again Thanks

    How do they know what colors to use when coloring in the black and white photos? How do they know the colors of those farmers clothes? Artistic guesses?

    Yes. It's like they paint them. I'm far from a expert though. The good ones, are studied, and they figure out what fabric was available, etc and then do their color voodoo that LT will have to explain. I know it's not exact but I catch my breat when I view these. It makes it far more real. And agin I thank LT. And his hot milf who I imagine is in key west.

    I think computer imagining/scanning picks up the colors. Amazing stuff.
