Incoming!

Insert mental file of an airplane engine failing (sputter, sputter, cough) and then the screaming whistle of the plane as it falls through the sky to impact the ground with a big CRASH! Wings are crumpled and broken, frame is bent out of shape, parts litter the landscape.

Now shrink the scale by a few powers of ten, and you get this series of pictures: “Microscopic photos of smashed gnats”. Awesome macrophotography, and right humorous if you’ve an odd sense of whimsy.

(perfectly safe for work, aside from the off-topic subject)
