Sept 2017 Part 3 - Antarctica: Weddell seals - POI - WOW


I was thinking Jaguar, but it could have been Mercury I guess.


Possible… I’m still thinking about it… Hear that crackling sound - like something burning? The same sound my neighbor heard the other day when I was thinking out loud! :rofl:


No it was (to me) more like a loud
strike strike
of a blacksmith’s hammer.

The 2 strikes were quite …striking!!

I told my friend that when I’m on my death bed, I will sit straight up just before I die and loudly announce the company name! But no one will know what I mean. hahaha


Corny! I think I’m starting to rub off on you! :crazy_face: The crackling sound I mentioned was me thinking out loud. But in the commercial, I do remember very well the loud two strikes of the hammer. Thinking… thinking… thinking… now I smell something burning!


Is this “peeping tom” Pan? (just to the right of the poly)

Cary Grant’s bedroom… eye.


Last one for a while (hours? minutes? :neutral_face::thinking:
Here’s a snow lizard that was standing on the edge when a piece of snow/ice broke off - and over he goes! His front leg is waving so frantically it looks like a blur! Poor thing.

And what we are looking for - a seal! This little guy is sticking his head up out of the snow. Lesson: Never fall asleep out in the open during a snow storm. :sleeping:

Okay, final one! A snow mouse. Notice the very short tail. That’s to keep it from freezing. (just outside and left of poly)

Final one…definitely the final one! Does this look like someone broke the ice, and then sprinkled smaller pieces of ice on top of it? :thinking:

And this snow creature peering out from its burrow. (outside and right of poly)


The imprints of giants’ soles. They wore open sandals until the ice age.

(Hate being yelled at. “You’ve already replied 3 times to @Jim7 in this particular topic.” Someone else post, and I’ll respond to you too. :heart: )


LOL! I was just to remark that if I told my wife everything I see in the snow and ice in this campaign, she’d probably ask me if I stay up all night thinking about this stuff. That sounds familiar! My mother used to ask my father if he stayed up all night thinking about corny things to say to us children! :crazy_face::rofl: - then the software pops up a window “suggesting” to me that I should try to reply to multiple people at once! I didn’t know there was more than one of me! :confused::roll_eyes::thinking::stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:


I think they’re waiting for us to go to sleep! And I just got this message from the forum software. Geesh!

“Let others join the conversation
This topic is clearly important to you – you’ve posted more than 40% of the replies here.
Are you sure you’re providing adequate time for other people to share their points of view, too?”

Now that’s twice I got “scolded” by the software - within 30 minutes! Goodnight! :neutral_face:


It was the Ram commercial, was it? I remember at the end of it the announcer would say they built these trucks “Ram tough!” (then the hammer and sound, and the imprint of the ram on the side of the truck). :smiley:


GUTS. GLORY. RAM. But I can’t find the “strike strike” ending with the pop out in steel / metal on any commercial.

In case anyone came late, we got on this tangent because of the animal face that Helen posted here:


Easier tangent… Jim’s B&W looks like an Native American Indian’s face… a mean face?


I was just checking out the Arm & Hammer commercials. Another possibility. And here’s yet another “scolding” from the software:
“Consider replying to more people
You’ve already replied 3 times to @cageycat in this particular topic.
Have you considered replying to other people in the discussion, too? A great discussion involves many voices and perspectives.
If you’d like to continue your conversation with this particular user at length, send them a personal message.”

I didn’t get scolded this often by my mother! Well… okay, I did! :rofl:


So that’s where Pan is!. She’s suppose to be in the Members Lounge cleaning it up, after that huge party that she and the Dust Bunnies had. Cheetos and Popcorn all over the floors, in the cupboards, in the dishwasher, just everywhere. EVEN in the jukebox! Them darn bunnies!! Guess, I’m going to have a stern word with her upon her return…:angry: As punishment I think I will tell her to take some water from umbrella dude and take it to his paramour in the red, white and blue kayak. I can just see her clamoring over all those boats, trying to keep her paws dry (Like someone else I know). -ake

Housekeeping - explanation of putting a year before posts

Quick question… Why does the “sign on the door” say, “Members Lounge,” but it’s locked? Hmmm… :thinking: I wonder what they’re hiding in there…


There is a Members Lounge. Have to scroll ALL THE WAY DOWN the list in order to click on it. This lounge is restricted to level 3 or higher users. No user has ever entered the lounge, mostly I guess, nobody knows about it. I’ve entered it, but because of the cobwebs, I leave.


:rofl: If it was on a commercial, it almost certainly wouldn’t have been seen over here! :stuck_out_tongue_closed_eyes:
Definitely not if it was a car commercial!

I was thinking more along the lines of this type of thing

While I was looking for example pictures of Venetian masks, I did find a kitty mask


LOL, I only got a nag from the server about 29% :stuck_out_tongue_closed_eyes:
