The West Virginia and Eastern Kentucky mountains have an odd rippled pattern to the hollers. I like that.

Mr Guy: impaler: dittybopper: Seems there is a lot of mining in that general area.

KRSESQ: All those lights in the northwest corner of North Dakota are from oil exploration, baby. Wells and drilling rigs and support facilities of every kind. And if the international price of oil drops below $68 per barrel, you'll be able to watch all those lights go out virtually overnight.

There's also a lot of lights in the Gulf of Mexico.

Apparently mining/drilling put off a lot of light.

Bright enough that the lights off oil rigs refract through the upper atmosphere and cause UFO sightings hundreds of miles away, and danged if that doesn't blow people's minds, even though the math clearly checks out.


That was cool, thanks.

dittybopper: FlameDuck: Just in time for Finlands independence day. Suomi aka Finland satellite sends us these greetings.

As a Finn, I'd like to say well played and thank you very much.


Ahh, yes. Finland. A country whose only claim to fame is taking the gold medal in Full Contact Team Biathlon at the 1940 Winter Games.


Oh dittybopper, you disappoint me. No Winter War history? Finns kicking the Soviet's asses twice in a row after surviving an awful civil war?

Or is my sarc meter discomboobilated again??

[applies Alan Bean School of Engineering technique, AKA hammer]

WHAP


Ahh yes, now it's working.

YAY!! Another Finn to place in my Blue File!!

*happy cat dance*

I was wondering if you knew "Full Contact Team Biathlon" meant winter warfare on skis, and that the "1940 Winter Games" referred to the Winter War.

BTW, to the best of my knowledge Kittypie070, I'm not a Finn. I did have a friend who was an exchange student from Turku though, back when I was a teenager, nearly thirty farkin' years ago.

I was hoping for some nicely sized 1280x1024 dual monitor sized versions. These are a bit too much for Paint to handle it seems. Stupid work computer.
