Crested Serpent Eagle


I did not go deep into some jungle to capture this photo of a Crested Serpent Eagle. No siree, it was just shot from my window in Battaramulla. We only a Kilometer from the town center. Despite the efforts of successive governments and countless people, there are a few trees still left standing in this neighbourhood, and sometimes they attract beautiful and rare creatures such as this.

Ever wondered what the back of the instrument cluster on your dashboard looked like? This the cluster from an e32 a few of the bulbs are missing.

Ban this porn.

Came here looking for porn? sorry there’s only food porn, and not enough to go round either.

Will this food porn get banned?

The Telecom Regulatory Commission  of Sri Lanka has acquired a new habit; they goto courts every week with a list of domains names that are supposed to be full of pornographic content and ask that they be banned. The court then gives an order which the country’s internet service providers and telcos have to obey – by blocking those sites. One wonders whether the TRC guys opens each and every one of the sites in their list in a browser and demonstrate that it is indeed porn. It would be interesting to know if they food porn is something they would consider banning. Since they no longer publish the list of sites that have been banned,  there is only one way to find out.
