People love to nitpick on movies, tv show's and novels, so lets nit pick real life events. I'll start: Why didn't any anyone put the top on JFK's motorcade when shot's started to be fired in Dallas? Ryantherebel (talk) 21:15, 6 January 2010 (UTC)

And that video of the assassination...it looks so fake. Definitely a hoax. Tetronian you're clueless 22:01, 6 January 2010 (UTC)
Yeah, it was totally photoshopped. Scarlet A.pngpostate 00:04, 8 January 2010 (UTC)
Yeah, the reflections are all wrong. Tetronian you're clueless 00:07, 8 January 2010 (UTC)

Serious answer? By then it was too late... ħumanUser talk:Human 00:51, 8 January 2010 (UTC)

Yes, the first shot actually hit him (and would probably have been fatal), although it wasn't the headshot that is famously replayed. Scarlet A.pngpostate 11:47, 8 January 2010 (UTC)

It looks photoshopped[edit]

Apparently this is what England currently looks like. However, Ireland isn't covered. Which is bizarre. Surely it should be if that's the weather conditions, it doesn't just suddenly stop like that, at the border between NI and the rest of Eire. Scarlet A.pngpostate 12:22, 8 January 2010 (UTC)

I doubt the whole of the UK is covered from top to bottom in snow. It looks pretty photoshopped. But what do I know, I developed a drinking problem after that tour in 'Nam... SJ Debaser 13:11, 8 January 2010 (UTC)
The picture shows snow over the Wicklow hills so it does admit to the possibility of snow in Eire but the conspiracy theory is far more fun. Bob Soles (talk) 15:15, 8 January 2010 (UTC)
Hey! It can't be fake - here is the same picture from the BBC!--BobIt's cold! 16:13, 9 January 2010 (UTC)
Right now, I'm trying really hard to come up with something that disses Britain, but I'm not having any luck. Star of David.png Radioactive afikomen Please ignore all my awful pre-2014 comments. 05:19, 9 January 2010 (UTC)
I added one to WIGO world with a pun that came straight from the mouth of my other (better?) half, it had me giggling for about half an hour last night. Scarlet A.pngpostate 15:03, 9 January 2010 (UTC)
