Sunrise in a very different place - honestly, it is getting difficult to tell what is computer generated and what is real

Just a wonderful story - not just for petrol heads.

Cool video, but please folks, its pronounced "willis":
John North Willys ( October 25, 1873 August 26, 1935) see his Wiki ebntrey, e.g. for pronunciation. Symbols would not copy here.

Heh! I caught that pronunciation, too. Caused me to wonder.

I've found that there are a few regional differences in pronunciations that are curious. For example: Where I grew up (east of Modesto, CA) farmers and everyone I knew pronounced almonds as "ammuns" (with a as in cat, u like e in the), even though all the outsiders pronounced it as spelled. I've changed to pronounce the "L", but when I visit with friends from that area, we always revert to the silent "L" version. Who knows where different pronunciations start.

By the way, the video was fun to watch.

True enough but the "willies" thing is not apparently regional. It seems to stem from some kind of assumption that the jeep was invented by Willy somebody. Makes me wonder if the guy in the video, or his dad, ever drove that Willys into the Sierra's.

Another note: that was the model used as George Patton's jeep in the movie, even though it was a 1953 model. Characteristic high hood due to the fact that it was the first OHV model. All the WWII MJ's were flatheads.

Now for something totally different, probably one of the lowest places above sea level on the planet, but it seems like a lot of fun when you bring the right toys

Wagga, maybe for you it looks ok, ...but there's a problem for us up here on the topside -- it's upside down!!

I had to turn my monitor upside down to watch it. grin

(Actually, on Windows, Ctrl-Alt-DownArrow inverts the view. I felt much better watching it that way. And C-A-UpArrow returns back to normal.)

maybe it's just because I've tried my luck with some macro photography before, but this is pretty incredible even for those who are just interested in insects

Please forward to Mr. Delos D. Harrington.



The control in the top left-hand corner lets you manipulate the view. Play with it. And turn the sound up to 11. At least.

Stolen from Jalopnik.
