I'm confused. (I know, it doesn't take much!)
I saw this picture on facebook. Obviously the man in the picture is in the military.
But my question is; is Canada breeding a race of tiny soldiers that are only 2 feet high or is that one mother of a Jeep?

It could be a 'forced perspective' but I'm not convinced.

(I will confess to a bit of photoshop work on this image but all I did was straighten it and crop the edges. I can't stand images where the camera was held at an obtuse angle because it's 'cool' to do so.)

I think the size is right in the shot and that's just one big honkin' truck (not a jeep).

Clearly it's made up, if he's Canadian he'd be drinking Tim Hortons coffee...

That is one enormous jeep.

That's what stunted his growth - too many double-doubles!

Looks like a large transport to me, we see them around a lot near the military base in Burlington, VT. They frequently take part in local parades and such, too. ENORMOUS things, must be all kinds of fun to do mechanic work on them.

That's Lilliput, not Canada. I can tell by the uniform and the fact that the soldier is holding his drink with the left hand.

weird, people in different regions hold their drink in different hands?!?

I'm an ambidextrous drinker myself...

As a good right-handed soldier he is holding his rifle with his right hand and that leaves his left for holding other things, like coffee mugs! I'd be a mirror image as I shoot left and drink right.

Wow! Amazing what years of practice can allow a person to achieve!
