Everyone’s reaction to this one can be summed up as, “What’s the big deal? It’s just two pics, one of a giant oil tanker and one of a peaceful little town”.

The Pasha Bulker 

But, in fact it’s a photo of a Pasha Bulker, a ship that famously ran aground in 2007 within spitting distance of that little Australian community there. The accident was due to bad weather while the captain was “eating breakfast.” Apparently it became quite a tourist attraction, with people traveling from all over to see the massive stuck ship and perhaps hoping it was about to spill several million gallons of Fosters.
