The nominees are:
The Admiral for:
"UPS version of crunching a WU"
Richard Haselgrove for:
"Hey, that must be the concertina I ordered!"
Sirius B for:
"OMG! I hope my Seti Toaster is okay."
and Carlos for:
"UPS 1 day select,
Had to be stuffed into a smaller faster airplane."


...And the Oscar Emmy Tony Grammy award goes to: [dramatic pause]
The Admiral!

with second place to Richard,
Third place to Sirius B,
and Honorable Mention to Carlos, who lost
points, because that was a UPS 3-day, not overnight, package.

BTW, the contents DID arrive intact - a lens from B&H Photo/Video

As a former UPS package handler myself, this appears to have been dropped at least twice, and possibly used on the bottom layer of a stack. All UPS air packages
travel on the same planes (sorry, Carlos...) it's just what happens before and after the plane ride that determines how fast that package arrives at your location.
UPS 3-day packages typically sit on the ramp at the destination airport for a day...

PM going out as soon as proofread and posted...

Judging will probably not occur until Wednesday, due to the weakly outrage...

When I post a picture, I change the https to http so that one does not have to be signed in to Facebook, I see that Google/Youtube won't allow that, where as Facebook will.


I have to do that when I post something from Flickr, too... such as:


cat rat rd BKK 10-16-16 1 by Paul Sullivan, on Flickr

Where I have to delete the "s" 4 times...

This kitty is in Bangkok, Thailand, BTW...

Well, only six captions, but I'll muddle through...

Honorable mention for JaundicedEye for correctly identifying the sculpture: this is, indeed, a real, cast-in Rodin's lifetime, copy of The Thinker
J.E. didn't say where it was, though... (there are 20 or 21 authorized casts, in two sizes, this is the smaller size...)

In Third place, Carlos for:

1, 2, 3, 4, .......998, 999, 1000, 1001 – darn I think I counted that one twice.
1, 2, 3, 4,.....

In Second Place, JaundicedEye for:

At this point, perhaps a Proctologist might be in order.

In First Place, and next pic post goes to Sirius B for:

While waiting for Godot to appear, I stared at Medusa :-(

... although looking at the Medusa turned you to stone, not bronze...

For the question I posed:
This copy of The Thinker by August Rodin is in the garden of the Glyptotek Museum in Copenhagen, Denmark.
There is another authorized copy (much more local to SETIcentral...) at the Palace of the Legion of Honor in San Francisco, CA... and it's the larger size, too!
Strange, when you think about it, that both copies of the statue that I've seen are near salt water...

a PM will go out as soon as this gets prüfred and posted... ;-)

only three captions, another 24 hours are called for: as that would take us into the outrage, I may judge early...

Arrgh! time to find another one... my memory is going,, I used to remember these things... OTOH, I think it was actually another shot of the same guy on the same day that I used last time...

that said, caption this:

Bonus points if you can tell me where it is, without looking at the Flickr page...
