    Yeah, I must be doing it wrong. I can see them in my Windows Firefox but get nothing on my Mac's Firefox. In IE all I see is a little x in the upper left corner but it has the link and shows as a .jpg image in properties.

    Huh?

    The X? is what I saw on my android. Here on my iMac using Opera, clickable URLs but I had to refresh the page to get the images.

    If you thought the Cadbury Creme Egg Rolls Royce or the matt black with quilted padded panel people mover were a sign of "what's wrong with Hong Kong", I humbly submit the following...

    Spotted by a friend in Central.

    No, I can't see if there is a Hello Kitty doll in the back window and there was no guy called Ken hanging around.

    Wow. The princess sure gets her wishes. That will put a dent on the car's resale value, but I don't think the owner would care.

    what is 2 not enough to call them a murder?
    Punctuation is important. It's the difference between "I helped my uncle, Jack, off a horse" and "I helped my uncle Jack off a horse"

    That's just a pair of ravens. Three would be a murder.

    (although I've also heard that it could be an 'unkindness')

    a group of ravens (and possibly crows) is called a murder of ravens, sort of like it's a herd of cows or a flock of seagulls or a pack of wolves. That sort of thing. So two ravens isn't quite a murder. When a third lands it will be, but until then I guess they're just attempting to be one.

    Thanks.

    I never heard that expression before.

    No one (really) calls a flock of crows a murder.

    It's just another random fanciful/silly name for a group of particular animals.

    It would be peculiar if you had.

    It's likely that there are quite a number of similar sort of things that you've never heard of before.

    It's a "dog whistle" among people who clutter their minds with useless trivia in an attempt to make themselves "look smart"!

    In this case, be proud of your ignorance!

    As did somebody in the picture above. So what?

    A poetic/fanciful turn of phrase doesn't indicate general or recommended usage (which is what "X is called Y" is implying).

    It's not even a very good fanciful phrase since it doesn't make any sort of sense.

    "Parliament of owls" is better (and I'd still probably slap anybody who used it in normal conversation!).
