God is happy?
God is angry?
God missed?
Thor is sore?

3. Either what #1 wrote, or...

It's an earlier photo being presented again now with a catchy title.

It's a photoshop job.

Anyway you look at it, it's irrelevant.

Regardless, everybody knows that the gods only throw down Coca-Cola bottles.

7. I think it's #1

No instances of it found before today. Doesn't look like photoshop, though you can never tell.

5. Greek Zeus is challenging Roman Jupiter...to a game of chicken.

.....and as usual the mortals are merely pawns in their godly games.

8. Even I can PhotoShop better than that!

I know how bright lightning is from photographing lightning, and this is not an original photo of lightning. Those street lights would not be that bright and the window lights would not saturate the frame.

15. Heh.

That's funny. Maybe it'll shock some sense into them.

Or maybe not.
