Sorry, it's internet-speak to suggest something is absurd.

That insane angle. It looks more plausible if I tilt my screen 90 degrees counterclockwise.

Wasn't sure where to put this. (and no, I don't need any snide suggestions about where I can put it!)

For those of you who are unaware of who the lovely lady is, she is Soeli Saarinen, beautiful wife of the great Jarno Saarinen who was killed in Monza in 1973. I think that particular photo was taken during the 250 Czech GP in 1971 while signaling for Jarno, the rider in the shot.

I hope that was a fireproof bikini.

I'm gonna be the naysayer. It's good but the crop is too tight and looks forced rather than an intentional frame by the photographer.

Did he get away with that, because it looks as if it was followed immediately by a full Colin McRae style massive crash??
