A few nice wiki quote images I found:
it’s a jungle in chinatown

I found this movie ad to be very entertaining. (to give you an idea of the size, look at this movie ad in the same spot last year) It was on the west side of the Verizon Center. For those of you not familiar with Washington, D.C., the Verizon Center is in "Chinatown." I add the quotes because it’s nothing but a tourist trap with places like Hooters displaying their restaurant signs in English and Chinese. The only time I go over there is when I crave Tony’s dim sum and need a photo of a women bent over. Oh yeah, another reason I avoid that area is because I always manage to get into arguments at Regal Cinema. Don’t ask. Cause I’ll tell you all about it.
Question by welshy: Who Wants To Be Quoted In My Assignment?
I have to do a report on the battle of sunda strait.
If anyone knows the impact or changes (they don’t have to be significant) and I will write their answer to use in my assignment (providing it’s good)
I will choose best answer, and I know it was a small battle, but please make an attempt. Even if you don’t know, an answer would be greatly appreciated.

Trying to Capture a Brocken Spectre and “Solar Glory” in our Neighborhood

There’s a moment each morning on our walk when we crest a hill with the sun directly behind us and start our descent into a deep ravine. Sometimes in September, if the autumn mists are rising from the ravine below, and also behind us, we get to see some unusual effects like these. I knew that they had names, so I did some checking on Wikipedia and here are some quotes and a link:
"A Brocken spectre (German Brockengespenst), also called Brocken bow or mountain spectre is the apparently enormous and magnified shadow of an observer, cast upon the upper surfaces of clouds opposite the sun. The phenomenon can appear on any misty mountainside or cloud bank, or even from an aeroplane, but the frequent fogs and low-altitude accessibility of the Brocken, a peak in the Harz Mountains in Germany, have created a local legend from which the phenomenon draws its name. The Brocken spectre was observed and described by Johann Silberschlag in 1780, and has since been recorded often in literature about the region. However it can be seen in any mountain region.
The "spectre" appears when the sun shines from behind a climber who is looking down from a ridge or peak into mist or fog. The light projects the climber’s shadow forward through the mist, often in an odd triangular shape due to perspective. The apparent magnification of size of the shadow is an optical illusion that occurs when the observer judges his shadow on relatively nearby clouds to be at the same distance as faraway land objects seen through gaps in the clouds, or when there are no reference points at all by which to judge its size. The shadow also falls on water droplets of varying distances from the eye, confusing depth perception. The ghost can appear to move (sometimes quite suddenly) because of the movement of the cloud layer and variations in density within the cloud.
The head of the figure is often surrounded by the glowing halo-like rings of a glory, rings of coloured light that appear directly opposite the sun when sunlight is reflected by a cloud of uniformly-sized water droplets. The effect is caused by the diffraction of visible light."
