Maybe the earth is like that giant Green Latern planet Mogo and it's finally decided to get all political and stuff. It'd be kinda weird but with faces on the moon and rats on Mars I wouldn't be surprised by anything. The universe is weird man, real weird.

At least there was an architectural reason for that.  That was a good way to maximize the amount of windows you could present to each office/floor.  Each "leg" has offices with windows on either side of a hallway.  if you make a cross, you lose office space on a square plot.  If you fatten the spurs, you end up with internal offices without any windows and you'd be dependent on interior light and air conditioning.  Make something that looks like a swastika, and you've created a long hallway bent over on itself without a sealed courtyard.

Why they couldn't farking bend the arms in the other direction, especially in 1967, is beyond me.

in the early 1970s, US soldiers complained to the government of the state of Hesse after finding not only a huge swastika on the southern slope of a spruce forest near a place called Asterode, but also the year "1933" formed by larches.

Nazi tree trolls, you know I hate 'em.
 
2013-07-08 11:43:53 PM
This one again?
 
2013-07-08 11:46:09 PM
but the mystery of their origins persist.

Lessee....

Despite the romantic tales of villagers and concentration camp victims; who would be out there with pine tree seedlings in the forest, and think it would be funny to plant them in the shape of a swastika that could only be seen (if at all) from the sky? Hmm...

In modern times, I'd say Boy Scouts. So back then--an errant camp of Hitler Youth, maybe? Kids with too much time on their hands?

I suspect certain very old Nazis remember planting it as little Hitler Jugend. Maybe even the ex-pope.

That design gives lots of open air and sunlight to the residents. There's always been a odd bit of overhead blindness with architects.

My paternal grandmother put a lot of consideration into where she planted fruit trees and bushes and flowering plants that blossomed at different times of the year.

She'd create color contrasts and even patterns that would unfold during the entire growing season.

As one display perished, another would be born.  The withered escorting in the new.

Her two acre yard was a paradise garden entirely of her own making and was a landscape worthy of any magazine spread.

She also despised Jewish people.

Thats really cool, I mean not the Nazi thing but the idea of growing a message in trees.
