Quote:
17 Cursed is the ground because of you; through painful toil you will eat food from it all the days of your life.

18 It will produce thorns and thistles for you, and you will eat the plants of the field.

19 By the sweat of your brow you will eat your food until you return to the ground, since from it you were taken; for dust you are and to dust you will return.
Yesterday a Sparrowhawk took a Sparrow from my garden, don't have a picture of it, so grabbed one from the web . .

Quote:

Adult male Eurasian Sparrowhawk, plucking prey. It is standing on a driveway to a house in Sint-Katelijne-Waver, near Antwerpen, Belgium.
Simon & Garfunkel - Sparrow ---> Lyrics
Quote:
Who will love a little Sparrow?
Who's traveled far and cries for rest?
"Not I, " said the Oak Tree,
"I won't share my branches with
no sparrow's nest,
And my blanket of leaves won't warm
her cold breast."

Who will love a little Sparrow
And who will speak a kindly word?
"Not I, " said the Swan,
"The entire idea is utterly absurd,
I'd be laughed at and scorned if the
other Swans heard."

Who will take pity in his heart,
And who will feed a starving sparrow?
"Not I, " said the Golden Wheat,
"I would if I could but I cannot I know,
I need all my grain to prosper and grow."

Who will love a little Sparrow?
Will no one write her eulogy?
"I will, " said the Earth,
"For all I've created returns unto me,
From dust were ye made and dust ye shall be."
Regarding the eaten Sparrow I also thought of Matthew 10 29 and Luke 12 6 . .

Quote:
Matthew 10:29 Are not two sparrows sold for a penny? Yet not one of them will fall to the ground outside your Father’s care.

Luke 12:6 - - Are not five sparrows sold for two pennies? Yet not one of them is forgotten by God.
Both presenting the same quote, but who is right about the numbers, and who cares about the Sparrow and the Sparrowhawk together . .

You mean the bow.. Yep, looks unnatural. Might be a paintjob with an optical illusion. If not photoshopped, I like it.
Comme vendee had some kind of optical illusion in it's bow.

Oh my, they all look fake to me still.

Yacht "A" in the video below about the 3/4 mark has a tender very similar to the original boat in question, so I guess it's real.

https://m-secure.wsj.net/video/20120..._v2_ec664k.mp4

The typical markers of scale, and detail nuances are wiped clean in these design, giving them a surreal or model-like appearance. Plus the white parts of the hull and canvas tops tend to bleach out photographically which does not help. A rendering might actually have more tell tell signs of scale oddly enough.

I remember when I first saw the first "A". I actually liked her ... up to a point. That point was when I finally saw her transom whereupon I commented, IIRC, "Sadly, this is the end."

There have been times car guys, when talking about certain cars, wonder why the designers stopped working/went home early before finishing work and that "A" reminded me of those comments.

... then there's the second "A" which is in Pontiac Aztek territory....

Not impressed with the white stingray leather walls of the F-room in the "A" (see video posted)?

It was all thought through, just not they way you or I would have done it.

Talk about going crazy with scale.............WTF?

That and maybe also protect the forward deck space from possible small arms fire or paparazzi.

Do you know the name of this craft in English?

I can find so far only one image with the sail up, and only one sail at that.

Größte Segelyacht
http://www.schwaebische.de/panorama/...,10618529.html


I think it too is called Yacht-A (how I found it), see the big "A" on the transom?

The one above is Motorjacht "A", and the sail one is Sailjacht "A"?

Found the below using that last term.

The $450 Million Sailing Yacht A Evokes Admiration Through Her Size, Design and Technology
http://luxexpose.com/the-sailing-yac...ogy-and-price/

Quote:
One of the one of the richest Russians, Andrey Melnichenko with a net worth of $9 billion can afford building something not only expensive but extraordinary and genuinely unique. The chairman of the Board of Directors of Eurochem and also as a board member of SUEK is currently busy with implementing his jaw-dropping marine project, the 468 feet (143 meters) long Sailing Yacht A, which is currency under construction at the Nobiskrug shipyard in Kiel, Germany. The project was a considerable financial risk for Mr. Melnichenko as he had to fund massive R&D to see if he could achieve his ambition, but seems like the visionary owner and the whole world will be pleased with the result, slated to be delivered in 2016.

Nicknamed the "A", it is also a vessel marked by mystery and intrigue. Most owners of a custom-made yachts are hoping to get fame and publicity. But Russian billionaire Andrey Melnichenko - who owns the superyacht "A" tends to refuse interviews and public acclaim about his yacht.
"A" was created by the parisian designer Philippe Starck, who made versatile designs for a wide range of products from a toothbrush to big hotels and each design is bearing the stamp of his personality.
More info and videos about "A" on TVSpain.tv
