found some creepy nevada desert stuff on google maps today.

here is the runway at area 51.

not only does this "not exist", but its over 5 miles long. a typical international jumbo jet landing strip is about 2 miles. using that scale as a measurement tool, guess how gigantic all those hangers are??

here is some rad design in the dessert, still in area 51, about 10 miles from the runway. its almost a mile from one side to the other. my guess is its an underground magnetic communication device that can be used without any outside source of power, used by pilots to navigate when all else fails.

here is a great shot of the valley used/use for testing atomic weapons. everyone of those tiny circles is a detonation location, yes, thats right, hundreds of detonations.

i am at the apple store trying out the new apple stuff. imac, ilife, that phone thing and i kind of think i hate most of it, but not sure yet. the new keyboard is wildly beautiful, but feels terrible. im only 2 lines into it and wish i had my little ibook keys back :( i took this horrible photo with the phone, but its not able to post it directly to anything but it self, so i mailed it to myself and am now at a 24 inch machine doing the rest. i wish i was using my 2 year old computer, not this.
