Last week popular Serbian magazine "Politikin Zabavnik" published a photo of famous Eugène Delacroix painting "Liberty Leading the People" with Soviet flag in Liberty's hand instead of French tricolor! They probably just googled it and found version of some modern artist.

Same here. We have newspaper called "Nový čas" (lit. New times). Article on Crimean crisis has as many views as article over some "celebrities and their celebrations" (read 45 years and older "recycled" "popular" "female" "singers" - thinking about it, I am not quite sure which word should be in quotes ). Or article about "Batman reported near Vienna" published year ago has fairly lot of views.

One of the worse habit of medias is the use of "stock pics" and "stock vids" from archives instead of real ones. In this way news are correlated with pictures or footages that have nothing to do with them and often were shot years before in the other side of the world.

The forum was indeed becoming a little bit slow lately.

Hmm Flickr changed its photo page layout once again. As usual it's not much of an improvement (more clicks to post something), but at least the important functions are still there. They also have new URLs containing flic.kr. The text with the credits below the photo is also removed.

I was once in a catamaran during storm between Zanzibar and African continent. That was still on the edge of Indian Ocean but it was a hell of a ride. I would rather not imagine how big storms look in the middle of the ocean.
