Very true and very perceptive. Reminds me of roadrunner69's works. Do want to point out something though... what's with the lamp that's cut off in the middle on the right of the image? V anyway for the brilliance here though.

Entirely excellent dear friend! I love your colour sense in all your images which gives a definite theme to your work... and the image you created in the TV here is superb... in and of itself... your study of statistics make this even more interesting... is there such a thing as a 'Computer Potato'? If so... I am dying of it as we speak... :^

Way cool it's surreal,funny,sad,true! Now the computer potato does indeed exist. If you have a customer service job (just an example here) sitting in front of that monitor day in day out you may wind a stat.,one of 400,000 blown away each year. (no sources avil that I know of to back this up) But lets not get into this, how could I possibly live without my computer. I'm retired and I spend the whole friggin day on this thing. Now would somebody reach over and turn on my printer I'm gluded to this chair and can't reach it. AWESOME AWESOME WORK!!!!

The little lady looks enthralled, hehe. Figures are not easy to collect (for obvious reasons), but modern western "medicine" certainly takes the cake in that department, and has for long centuries. Of course, one must also plug into the pertinent equations, that they are also very good at crowing up great and revolutionary "victories" when they finally manage to "cure" various plagues of their own making (like "Childbed Fever"). And there are many contemporary examples, none widely known or advertised by the medicos themselves....Striking depth and finish, superb playfulness (including the streetlight, where most people look for lost articles, not because they were lost in that area, but because the light there's so much better for looking, hoho).

I luv the variable size of the objects. This is the most interesting tv room I'd ever seen. Excellent composition.

not only you have a style with this software I truly love (and I wish in ten years to do half as good...but I despare to being capable to make that) : you always come with very interesting subjects, and thoughts that make me think. Thanx.
