Even if it is phoney, its still a good example of what Murphy's Law can be like :D

Nice find Bletch :thumbs:

Well...it started out as a 1973 Ford F-100, 4WD pickup truck that had "For Sale" posted under neath it.

I decided to not sell it, and took the pix out, putting in the Kangaroo-Zebra-Antelope for fun, but somebody asked me about the title under it, so I corrected it saying it was "Not A Truck"

I wanted to post my half-rabbit/half-cat which everybody calls a "Cabbit", but I prefer "Cabunny" (http://www.imagef1.net.nz/files/cabunny.JPG)

Neither the google cache or the wayback machine have a complete copy of the page, but perhaps this Advanced Microsoft Keyboard (http://www.imagef1.net.nz/files/0023.jpg) might make up for it a little. Every function you could ever need, right at your fingertips!

Well, my firefox cache had the complete website still on it, so I've extracted the pics, and uploaded them to my homepage.

You can see them here (http://homepages.xnet.co.nz/~sperry/)

And yes, I made the effort to make sure they are displayed in the right order :D

haha thats really funny :lol:

BUT i do have a strong feeling that the last 2 photo's are "shopped" - they don't look natural and are rather pixelated - still funny either way :p

They look pixelated because the last three pictures (actually 3 pictures combined in one jpeg) were quite a bit smaller than the rest. I have increased the size of them/it to bring them/it to the same size as all the other pics (exactly how they were done in the original site)

[EDIT: Having said that, even the original pics look rather pixelated.... You could be onto something there about them being 'shopped :D]

You utter legend Sherman, thanks. I'm gonna bet they're edited 'cause of the lack of a splash in the last pic. But they still look cool :D

There are perils in all dealings with the famous law.

You wanted to help people to "see" Murphy's law with pictures. The pictures are on a site, and you give the URL. What could ever go wrong with that?

One of the corollaries to Murphy's Law ensures that the URL will no longer point to the page.

Sorry to disappoint, but the pics are a hoax. My brother forwarded them to me a couple of month ago, but shortly afterwards followed up with the fact that they'd been fixed. I can't remember the whole story, but sorry, they aren't all real. I think the first crane falling in is OK but the second one isn't.

Aaaah, but does it matter if they're a hoax? They're still excellent humour, which was kind of the point. :D

Link went down before I got to see her, is this the same series of pics?

If so, the last one looks crap.
