Hello Folks:

No, this is not intended to be spam or anything like that. I have a few questions to ask. Here the questions:

1. Where on the Internet can I find a VERY NICE banner/marquee-sized ( Width: 4*** to 1*** pixels and Length: 4** to 1** pixels ) visual/photograph/visual of a futuristic robot city? I have already looked for a good banner of Iacon City, Planet Cybertron ( Homeworld of the TRANSFORMERS , http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cybertron , http://tfwiki.net/wiki/Iacon_(polity) ), that wierd high-tech cityscape from that ROBOTS ( 2005 , http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0358082/?ref_=fn_al_tt_1 ) movie and maybe even something off the late Isaac Asimov's ROBOT CITY novel series ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Isaac_Asimov , http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Isaac_Asimov%27s_Robot_City ) , but I never could find anything substantial. Perhaps I should settle for a banner of TRON City ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tron:_Legacy , Disney Productions ) - if I am fortunate enough to find anything like that. If any of you can point to where I can find such a banner-sized visual, then I would appreciate it very much; I need it to be either a JPG, JPEG, GIF or PNG file. I have run out of places to look.
2. Just like there are some Internet sites that perform online language translations ( http://translate.reference.com , http://www.freetranslation.com and http://translation2.paralink.com/translator/default.asp ) , are there any websites that can translate words of "standard" English (common, everyday English words) to words of English technical jargon/political correctness? The best instance that I know of already are those POLITICALLY CORRECT BEDTIME STORIES ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Politically_Correct_Bedtime_Stories ) and POLITICALLY CORRECT CHRISTMAS SONGS ( http://toptenlog.blogspot.com/2010/12/top-ten-politically-correct-christmas.html ) that comprise of technical terms and "big" words for many of the original works of literature. If there are any such sites, it would simply be a matter of me visiting them and just typing in any "regular" English text, and then eventually getting output in the form of some complicated English terminology? Do sites of this type even exist? :confused:

Thank you all very much for your help thus far!

For the more dystopian futuristic visuals the Fall of Cybertron art book is really very impressive for conveying a sense of scale.

Without wanting to sound completely sarcastic, there's not really a good substitute for learning English and building up examples over time or filling in gaps with a thesaurus (thesaurus not recommended if you can't then use the words in correct context, though). Examples aren't particularly hard to find in fiction -- business manuals, dialogue for characters such as Johnny in the Doc Savage novels, Perceptor in Transformers, Big Words in the Newboy Legion, etc.
