Ping AC ... A task for you

Post by ed »

I need you to get on your damn faggy bicycle and hie thee to Cuffley. Prior to that you need to familiarize yourself with these two paintings

Cuffley1 small.jpg
Now when you get to cCuffley, you need to reconnoiter a bit. The task to to see what vantage point the artist used for these paintings.
Once you have sussed it out, plot the positions on Google Earth. Take some pictures from the vantage point, attempting to reproduce the perspective from back then. It would be good if you could find contemporary pictures/art work that reproduce the vantage point in daylight.

Part two will take a bit more work. You need to reconstruct the events of the downing of the "Baby Killer" and determine how accurate the paintings are.

Thanks.

Do you think you can have something by monday?

I know, right! You ask him politically to do one simple little thing--probably wouldn't take more than a day or two--and he can't even be bothered to respond. Are are Brits like that? Damn. And after all you've done for him. Double damn. With a cherry on top.

He owes me reparations for 200 years of tyranny over mine ancestors before we threw them the fuck out.

The way the Brits referred to Zeppelins during WW1 before we came over and saved their sorry asses.

The correct way to frame the ask is, "Can we have something by Monday?"
The flash of light you saw in the sky was not a UFO. Swamp gas from a weather balloon was trapped in a thermal pocket and reflected the light from Venus.

Cuffley? Why the fuck would I want to cycle to Cuffley? It's 200 miles away and full of Southerners.
Shit happens. The older you get, the more often shit happens. So you have to try not to give a shit even when you do. Because, if you give too many shits, you've created your own shit creek and there's no way out other than swimming through the shit. Oh, and fuck.
