    Screaming idiot - shuttle "photo".

    Have a look at this idiot! How on Earth can anyone try to pass that off as a photograph? Not a single cloud from Greenland to the Black Sea and from near the North pole to about the Equator? The Atlantic so clear you can see the Mid Atlantic ridge?

    Anyone know who he is?

    maybe there's some way the clouds can be omitted, but all of the markings on the ocean are a bit much
    Please direct all complaints regarding this post to the nearest brick wall Have a nice day.

    i doubt this thing is real...just doesnt seem to fit??? i think face posted the pic of "the earth at night" it looks like a sat. image compiled w/that pic, think about it the shuttle doesnt orbit that high, if you've ever watched nasa tv when there's a shuttle up, and they show live feed from the ship looking down on earth, it just seems like their closer?? i dunno, its prolly just me


    edit:: and like you guys said...no clouds over such a large portion of the planet?

    Looks like a composite image maybe? You should not be able to see subsurface features like those shown in the Atlantic Ocean. Depending on the angles involved, you should also see some reflection from the water's surface. As for the matter of clouds; someone could look at the dates of that shuttle mission and compare those dates with the NOAA (or some other source) for cloud coverage over the North Atlantic during that timeframe. It does NOT appear to be an original/unaltered image.

    Don't need that photo to know he's an idiot. In fact, there was a book a couple years back titled "Rush Limbaugh Is A Big Fat Idiot" that was on the bestseller lists.

    Heh - that's my wallpaper (has been for a few weeks) - I don't care if it's real or not, it's kinda neat to look at.

    Rush Limbaugh's a right-wing talk radio host.

    Yes, he's a big fat idiot. I know because Al Franken told me so.

    Don't need too, where I live is on that picture and I don't recall us having a cloud free day since about October!

    Don't worry - it's Rush Limbaugh's site - there's nothing of value there anyways.

    Maybe there's some camera equipment they had that could penetrate clouds and the whitecaps in the ocean.

    Of course, I'm pulling at straws here... whether or not that image is real, Rush Limbaugh is a Big Fat Idiot.
