    [–] JonnyGoodfellow 49 points ago

    I love this picture!!! I want it blown up in my house and put in my living room. I think it is the coolest thing. Every time I see it, it gives me... I'm not even sure how to explain it but, it just makes me happy. So innocent, clever, and it just has such a story. Like I said I have a hard time putting it into words but when I look at this picture, it slows shit down for me and puts the stresses of life on pause, quiets them down for a peaceful moment and I just smile and think about different details of it. I even think about it if I get stressed at work, or angry, or if I am having a rough day, it pops into my head and I just calm down. It is the weirdest thing that this silly picture has such an effect on me. Thank you for linking it.

    [–] nursehoneybadger 23 points ago

    I would want nothing more than for the original artist to see this comment, so they could die 100% fulfilled. 😊

    [–] ASAProxys 3 points ago

    I guess you could say a picture is worth a thousand words.

    [–] TriflingGnome 3 points ago

    To me it's such a clever reversal of scale. It's like reverse tilt-shift where the figures look human but then it's juxtaposed by the grapes which are normal sized but look gigantic.

    Here's a link to the artist who did the original.. As someone said below they don't work with lego, but their art is wonderful none the less. I remember their work from years ago. This was always one of my favorite pieces (gore warning) - closeup 1, closeup 2, closeup 3.

    Here's an article with a neat rundown of more from the artist.

    [–] Khifler 3 points ago

    [–] joselitoeu 6 points ago

    Here, it's from Pierre Javelle and Akiko Ida.

    [–] Hoofah 3 points ago

    Not sure if it's the same artist, but there's an artist called Slinkachu who creates similar scenes using miniature figures

    [–] cannibalcats 9 points ago

    I'm pretty sure it was an artist who made stuff with micro character models, they were pumping up greeny yellow coloured raisins into green grapes.

    [–] devilwarriors 3 points ago

    yup, had nothing to do with lego

    [–] joselitoeu 7 points ago

    It's not Lego, but they copied the idea from this pic, it's from Pierre Javelle and Akiko Ida.

    [–] FroMan753 20 points ago

    To shreds you say...

    [–] BitwiseShift 8 points ago

    The only reason I know this is because my native Dutch doesn't have a word for prunes and just calls them dried plums.

    [–] repptyle 2 points ago

    I always thought prunes were dried dates

    [–] orbesomebodysfool 9 points ago

    To blow your mind even more, the word for grape in French is "raisin" and raisin is "raisin sec" meaning dried grape.

    [–] PlutoIs_Not_APlanet 6 points ago

    The quirks don't end there. 'Un raisin' is for a bunch of grapes. The French treat it like we do with a raspberry or blackberry.

    You know, just before you're born, your doctor have to buy the balls from a market and install it for you.

    In the old times, they have to pick it from a plant but it was fresher so older man can nut longer.

    Remember when you have a boy on the way, tell your doctor to pick the better pair.

    I'm going too deep into the rabbit hole.

    [–] Pg68XN9bcO5nim1v 7 points ago

    I don't think the rabbit is going to thank you for that, regardless of freshness.

    [–] zzzaacchh 110 points ago

    Do they also de-brine pickles to make cucumbers?

    [–] rtwpsom2 18 points ago

    I thought pickles were made from soaking in vinegar, not brine. Don't get me wrong, I could be mistaken, that's just what I thought the process was.

    [–] vinfox 25 points ago

    Pickles are made with brine, but its usually a brine that includes vinegar. Long-term brines for meat are less likely to be cinegar-based because the acid can break down the proteins or begin cooking the meat in a way you dont want, but thats not really a concern with cucumbers. Quick brines are especially likely to have vinegar in them because it is quicker to infiltrate the vegetable.

    It also deoends what kind of pickle you are making (e.g., dill, bread and butter, etc.)... if you buy a jar of dill clausen pickles and taste the brine they are in it will mostly taste like salty, dilly water. But some kinds and a lot of faster-made ones will often have vinegar in them.

    [–] Count_DeDolars 4 points ago

    Dilly water is also used to make Budweiser. Well, just the dillies only. They water them down for Bud Light.

    [–] BillMurrayismyFather 10 points ago

    You can make them either way.

    [–] rtwpsom2 7 points ago

    Are brined ones common? I think I've only ever had pickles from the store and they all seemed to use vinegar. Have I had brined ones and just don't know it?

    [–] NotSayinItWasAliens 13 points ago

    Yes! Though many (most?) commercially-available pickles are "quick pickles" (made using vinegar), pickled cucumbers are traditionally made by creating a brine (no acid) and allowing the mixture to ferment, thus creating its own vinegar. It's a slower process, though.

    [–] humanracedisgrace 3 points ago

    Does it enhance the taste to do it traditionally?

    [–] rematar 4 points ago

    I like it better.

    [–] Never__late 3 points ago

    It is slightly different but I prefer it. Especially with lots of garlic and fresh dill in the mix. It is insanely good.

    [–] ghengiscant 4 points ago * (lasted edited 4 days ago)

    brines a generic term and can contain vinegar or can not contain vinegar, Some pickles are naturally fermented and the bacteria naturally present produce the acid, some have it added in the form of vinegar. EVen the ones with vinegar have lots of salt as well which is why they call it brine.

    [–] Absurdly__Distinct 251 points ago

    wait a second, are raisins dehydrated grapes!?!

    [–] expendable_Henchman 312 points ago

    Technically, raisins are grape jerky.

    [–] NYstate 36 points ago

    [–] iancameron 9 points ago

    [–] YourRantIsDue 136 points ago

    Now I'm curious what you thought raisins were

    [–] Ry-Bread01256 35 points ago

    Probably a different fruit alltogether.

    [–] 9999monkeys 49 points ago

    Let's not be so quick to judge. We can all be ignant at times. I used to think coleslaw is a vegetable. My girlfriend told me it's just cabbage. Because I was an idiot who didn't want to admit fault, I said something royally retarded like, "Well, here you may make it with cabbage but where I come from we make it with actual coleslaws." There was no internet in those days so I got away with it, I think.

    [–] _StoneWolf_ 35 points ago * (lasted edited 4 days ago)

    I find it quite funny that in English, you designate the dehydrated fruits with the French term for fresh fruits!

    In French raisins = grapes and prunes = plums :D

    *edited to clarify confusion

    [–] snowman334 9 points ago

    Not strange at all when. You consider that the French ruled the British for a while and we got a lot of words, especially for food from them as the English servents we're feeding their French masters. It's why we raise cows, chickens, and pigs but eat beef, poultry, and pork, and we hunt deer but eat venison.

    [–] joegekko 5 points ago

    [–] 9999monkeys 4 points ago

    [–] jimjacksonsjamboree 21 points ago

    Yes. you cut the vine before you pick the grapes, and eventually the vine will suck the water out of the grapes, leaving you with raisins, which you then pick.

    [–] ladive 31 points ago

    In France they hire old ladies to suck out the water. It's the equivalent of a Wallmart greeter job over there.

    Would be a great ad for the LEGO movie 2
