Operation Flavius(nominated by HJ Mitchell) A controversial British SAS operation in Gibraltar, in which three members of the IRA were gunned down, despite being unarmed, due to suspicion they were involved in a plan to bomb the British military.

Jim Thome(nominated by Go Phightins!) To quote the nominator, "Jim Thome was my favorite player growing up watching baseball, and about 18 months ago, I was determined that he was going to have a fantastic Wikipedia article. Three months later, it finally achieved good article status. Last July, I nominated it for featured status, and its first nomination failed. Since then, I have sought feedback not only from the two editors who reviewed it at the first nomination, but from a few other baseball editors, and I feel it is much improved." The reviewers agreed: The article is now featured, and an excellent, detailed biography.

List of National Football League season receiving yards leaders(nominated by Toa Nidhiki05) Not all of us are good at every subject. As such, asking me to explain a list describing leaders in a rather complicated American football statistic is dangerous, but, as I understand this, when a ball is tossed to someone else in American football, if it's thrown forwards, it's considered a passing play, and this can be for various distances forwards. The total number of yards passed forwards to and caught by a specific person in a season is considered the receiving yards statistic for that person, which is one of the standard statistics calculated for American football players at the end of the season. This list shows, for each season, which one player had the highest number. There's a reason I usually leave sport articles and lists to someone else.

Sari temple(created and nominated by Crisco 1492) Candi Sari, or Sari Temple, is a eighth-century Buddhist temple in Indonesia, here seen in absolutely ridiculously high resolution, thanks to stitching together of many separate photographs. Believed to have started life as a Buddhist monastery, or vihara, it was rediscovered in the 1920s, and was reconstructed by 1930.
