Wha?? This is somewhere in the Saudi Arabia/Jordan area.
I believe that has to do with teh way those areas are irrigated. They have a central water supply and a rotating boom that sprays water. I could be terribly wrong, but that's my hunch.
It makes for a interesting photograph, that's for sure.
Sometimes the aliens make circles in crops, and sometimes they make crops in circles.
Circle Irrigation... Water is piped undeground to a pump in the middle. A long trestle with sprinklers extends out. the trestle is about 10' tall, and has supports with wheels every 50' or so.
Done in parts of the US as well.. Do a Google search in Eastern Washington, and you'll see much of the same. Some of the fields are 1 mile in diameter, so you can do the math and know how long the treste is.
Our local gold course used it... if you ball landed in the path worn by the wheels, you got relief...
In Eastern Washington, the Local Fish and Game departments will often lease the corners from farmers for wildlife habitat, since they aren't watered by the circle. I did a service project to renovate one to bring it back to some semblance of sustainable.
That's what the fields look like in my part of Nebraska. From above, most irrigated fields will look like that.
Just swings around in a big circle. See?
Wow, this is crazy I finally know this. I've flown over many areas in an air plane and always wondered what those were. Man I love talkbass, thanks guys!
Have you seen this? It's a lake in the middle of the US. It was so iced over, the camera took a reflection of it's internal CPU.
It's just north of Kansas City. Trimble Wildlife Lake
Check out Area 51; you can zoom in some more, but this shot gives a nice overview.
Search for Indiana Springs, Nevada,go a bit to the west and keep scrolling north. You should get there.
1) That pic of Kansas is freaking awesome!!!
2) I CAN SEE MUNJIBUNGA FROM HERE...
That's a fake. Area 51 doesn't exist.
Why, was it bored by what it saw?
no.. All computers have an internal CPU..
It's that part of them that wishes they were still a pocket caluclator writing dirty messages upside down, and not up in space taking pictures of frozen lakes...
Of course all computers have at least one internal CPU. I asked why the camera would photograph a "reflection of its internal CPU."
Perhaps the ice from the lake created a mirror effect for the camera? Just guessing.
I was making a bad joke... ya know.. internal CPU... inner child??
That would have been a good joke had I gotten it.
Same here! Maybe "inner CPU" would've worked better. Or something that suggest an infant stage of the chip, like "inner silicon wafer."
