This thread is here to demonstrate than with the right argument everything can be steampunk.

1-U2 Round 2 Or The Argument I Should Have Use The First Time:

If theses are steampunk (according to various authority varying from Wikipédia to The Clockwork Cabaret)....:

Then U2 is effectively steampunk.:

2-Selena Grande, Mika And Ariana Grande Dieselpunk Vibe:

3-Walt Disney:

a) If Don Rosa is to be believed, the Donald Duck canon (and therefore the wholes Disney cartoon canon) is set in the mid-1950's

b) Various easter eggs, some crossover (between Alladin and Hercules for example), the Disney Princess franchises and House Of Mouses let us believe than the event of all the animated movie are contemporary to one to another despite the fact they look as if their set in different time period. Combined with the fan theory than Alladin is set in the post-apocalyptic far future with the magic being in reality lost technology, that make you think.

4- Addendum to 1 : as you can see here, The Beatles (and Queen) are totally considered steampunk:

5- Two words: steam cooking ( i actually imagine it becoming a engine room classic).

6- Two others: steam washing



Ok, your turn to give your folhardy claim to steamyness.

The word pagan came from paganus , who mean peasant . Its was a way to significate than christianism was the religion of the elite and paganism the one of the savage worker class.

''Trickster shows us how we trick OURSELVES. Her rampant curiosity backfires, but, then, something NEW is discovered (though usually not what She expected)! This is where creativity comes from—experiment, do something different, maybe even something forbidden, and voila! A breakthrough occurs! Ha! Ha! We are released! The world is created anew! Do something backwards, break your own traditions, the barrier breaks; destroy the world as you know it, let the new in.''

Good satire does not usually identify itself as satire in its title.

It is when it satires a fire wars provoking pet peeve, especially if you have been beaten to death the last time you have been guilty of it (see the first time i claimed than U2 was steampunk).

Translations: i was too affraid you don't get the joke. Tongue

Greenpeace wouldn't do that at the British Parliament or U.S. Capital Building unless they want to be beaten unconscious by security officers. New Zealand government security must be pretty lax.

 They apparently climbed  up  scaffolding  on the side of the building.  The police have chosen for  reasons of safety ,  to let them come down on their own . It is the middle of winter   with near record cold  and frost.  They will be down by dark.

 The PM has a   team of guards  [ a.k.a. men in black] where ever he goes.  The buildings are open to the public. New Zealand is fairly quaint.

The U.S. Capital building is open to the public, but if you were to climb up the outer walls with grappling hooks, the security forces would still drag you down and beat you.
