Singapore's National Day is only three days away. The size of the helicopter gives you an idea the size of the whole patriotic ensemble. I wouldn't have thought those counter-weights would be big enough. Maybe they have the matter from dead stars in them, or maybe compressed pratas that have been left out on a table for more than a day and have gone rock solid. We all know those are damned near indestructible!
I've also started using Zooomr, another photo sharing site with much more liberal storage space and is Adobe/Macromedia Flash free for us FreeBSD users. I'll probably keep my Flickr account for now for more random shots and put good ones on Zooomr.
