Consumerist Friday Flickr Finds

Here are eleven—that’s right, count ‘em—wonderful photos readers added to The Consumerist Flickr Pool this week, picked for neatness and usability in a Consumerist post. We were kinda going with a “signs of summer” theme, but then got sidetracked when we saw the Hello Kitties and the gun. Check ‘em out!

    Btw, the blue sci-fi photo is of a tape storage system at CERN, which really does make it sort of sci-fi.

      @Chris Walters: what – couldn’t get into the dark matter collection chamber? pshaw! now THAT would’ve been a cool picture. or two. i’ve never seen a really good macro shot of a severed eyeball before…

      @Chris Walters: Never has black hole-swirling, gravity-hole-plunging, planetary death looked so… Well, bitchen’!
      Good find.
      Nicest part: the pretty humming bird can watch the entire thing, hovering from a safe distance (yeah I know, I know: humor me)

    Tape storage *at* CERN? Something tells me if they screw up they’ll want their backups really, REALLY offsite. Like off planet.

    (yes I know, any black holes they might create will likely evaporate. Hawking radiation, yadda yadda yadda. Don’t ruin the joke for the mundanes.)

    I feel like there should be a T-Rex charging in behind the woman in the jungle wearing the raincoat.

    I’ve been to the Teapot gas station. It’s just a bit southeast of Yakima WA, right off the I-82 freeway. Worth a visit if you’re in the neighborhood.

  6. Jeffry Marth says:

  7. MooseOfReason says:
