Never through of that... you're right, especially the second one is very similar to photos I've seen of Cambodia! I'd really like to go to Cambodia, Laos and Vietnam, but with my luck, I'd probably get bitten by a poisonous snake, or worse!
Just bring a talking owl with you...

The poor man's GPU cooler!

I'm refurbishing a 10 year old computer for older games, but the graphics card fan was noisy as hell and I don't want to buy a new one for that computer, so I strapped a 120mm fan with a wire strap! It turned out pretty cool! :mrgreen:

Though I suppose that Cambodia is not exactly the killing fields anymore. As far as natural dangers Australia has to take the cake. Everything is venomous there. :lol:
The most venomous thing down here in the Downunder is the politicians.

That house in Tennessee is just asking for trouble...

The other two photos? Ripe for D&D ideas.

Well it looks like someone's already sitting on the edge of the cliff...

While Tennessee is not known for Earthquakes... any natural disaster (too much rain, snow, both of which Tennessee gets hit with, trust me, from my time there!) - seems like it'd send that house over. Especially if it was anywhere near the "Tornado Alley" of Tennessee...

In Tennessee? During that year? Probably.

Or just being in Tennessee despite whatever year it is... take it from me...
