Ron Paul vs Giuliani Animated GIF

This is another animation I made in GIF format (animated GIF).  It’s Ron Paul (Magneto) fighting Giuliani (Wolverine).

Feel free to use this image if you link back to me and give me credit.

I got the inspiration for this animation when someone on a forum mentioned Ron Paul looked like Ian McKellen. At the South Carolina Republican Presidential Candidates Debate on January 10, 2008, Ron Paul–well armed with historical knowledge and facts from the CIA report on 9-11–totally obliterated Giuliani’s neocon propaganda.

I predicted that if the Republicans nominated anyone besides Ron Paul, they would lose, no matter who the Democrats selected.  Well, look what happened, and look at the mess we’re in now.

Trojan Combat Suit Animated GIF

This is another animation I made in GIF format (animated GIF).  It’s Troy Hurtubise showing off his Trojan Combat Suit, complete with a compass and a clock in the cod piece.

Troy Hurtubise (pronounced Butthurt) is world renowned for his Ursus Series of bear suits which won the Ig Nobel Prize. After a failed attempt to sell the Trojan Combat Suit on eBay for $35,000, he was awarded a limited-production contract by the Department of Defense for $10 billion.

I spent a surprising amount of time (okay, not a whole lot, but more than you would expect) creating this GIF, trying to get the timing right. Where he appears to open the cod piece in the animation, it’s actually taken from footage of him closing the magic cod piece in reverse.
