    my picture pretty clear and it out in the country.

    but i think generally that statment is correct,
    there many places that arent as clear cause they dont expect
    to many people to be looking in those areas.

    Man, there is some weird stuff out in the desert in the southwestern united states. Like Green and black circles and stuff. Anyone know what these things are? I'll try and find them again, and take a picture.

    Edit: Not what I was talking about, but this looks pretty cool.

    Here they are, if you can even see them. Photobucket shrunk them down.

    No clue. I see them a lot though when flying home (to the SW). I think it's agricultural sites of some sort.
    The word rap as it applies to music is the result of a peculiar phonological rule which has stripped the word of its initial voiceless velar stop.

    I guess that Waterloo just isn't the important world powerhouse I thought it was. Ah well.

    Speaking of weird southwestern buildings. Enter these coordinates:
    32.676116, -117.157742

    I'm sure people have seen this by now, but if not, there's some "interesting" architecture for ya.

    For whatever reason crops are often grown in circles instead of squares, although I have yet to find the reason why. The different colors are just different crop types. You'll see the same thing flying over any of the plains states.

    Instead of the tractor having to make u-turns over and over again u can just put a little tilt on the steering wheel and hold it like that going around in circles... maybe that's the reason
    Hmm

    in the southwest.. it's all about irrigation.. there is a really big sprinker in the middle of the crop circle and it sprays all around in a circle and that is how the crop grows.

    Cool, thats always been one of those things I've always wondered about but never knew how to find out since googling for "Crop Circles" only brings up those stupid UFO sites.

    Looks like the satellite feed is from BEFORE the hurricane struck, since New Orleans looks just fine. Oh well.

    EDIT: They say the I-10 is flooded? Not. They say no-one's driving around? Not.

    You do know that most of those satellite images are anywhere from 1-3 or 4 years old, right?
