Looks almost like they're playing leapfrog. A violent, hateful version of it.

Fashionistas pose for photographs in front of a homeless man outside Moynihan Station following a New York Fashion Week show in September.

Those aren't models, are they? They look too short to be models, even with those massive heels.

Because it makes us realise no matter how shiatty we think our lives are, someone else has it worse.

Felix Baumgartner is no true hero. He chickened out and left mid-project for a year. Totally pussed out. Even Kittinger was disappoint. They should have let the backup dude go but I guess the already blew most of the budget on the custom suit for Felix. Lame.

Those are powerful images alright - powerful reminders of how craven, hateful, and selfish we humans can be. If humanity had any sense of decency, we'd look on most of these images and be ashamed of ourselves.

#34. You'd think the Dutch were prepared for this whole possibility of flooding just from that pic. Water gets that high anywhere in the US and the houses are totally inundated. And here's this guy, casually looking out his window.

FTFA: #35: Protesters (and dogs) shield themselves from a police water canon after a student protest ended in clashes with authorities in Santiago, Chile.

The protesters, yes. The dogs....not so much.

It's always interesting to see these extremes. Riot police using great restraint with some pissed-off dude because Greece f*cked their economy up. Then switch to outright blatant police brutality in Israel. Then switch to yet *another* law enforcement officer (I'm guessing) comforting some poor saps that are getting sent back to some really shiatty circumstances. And it seems to vary even within individual countries.

People be crazy & shiat, yo.

The mother on her son's grave made me bawl like a baby for a few minutes. Thank god I'm alone in my office. The monsoon wedding was a good cheerful comeback.

If I did that, I'd use a whole box of tissues and need industrial strength anti-depressants for a week.

A bit dusty in the room. Either that, or the wife cut onions earlier... #26 was hard to look at.

Lots of good photos in there, but 22 sort of makes the room a little dusty.

How can humanity be so uplifting and yet so devastating at the same time?

A lot of the pictures made me sad, but that's the one that actually made me tear up. I guess I have screwed up priorities

Missing from the list:

I hope the cop that did that gets prostate cancer
