has made my day.
who the fuck will see that
"NEW YORK (Reuters) - From space, extraterrestrials and astronauts can look back to earth and see The Great Wall of China -- and KFC's Colonel Sanders."
You cannot see the great wall of china from space, cunts!
But I wasn't wearing my glasses so it's possible.
with a good enough zoom on your camera!
the point is - you MIGHT be able to see the great wall from space, but no more (in fact, probably less) than you could see a motorway.
Those are very high resolution images, zoomed in. It's like saying you can see my house from space because I can see it on Google maps.
From space you cannot see the wall.
You can see that guy from Keane's face!
it is in the sky everynight.
it has no edges, so it just blurs in to everything around it.
you really do learn something new everyday.
i have a passionate hate of factoids and a love of pedantry, i should do this as a job.
I now doubt everything I accepted as truth
might as well disbunk some other common misconceptions...
- you DO you more than 10% of your brainpower (you use all of it stoopid)
-toilets DO NOT flush the other way around in the southern hemisphere
-there is no such thing as a compound in water which goes purple when you go for a tinkle in the pool
-you DON'T swallow 8 spiders a year
and men DON'T think about sexytime every 7 seconds
here endeth todays lesson.
has lisa simpson lied to me? and once I saw an experiment on tv where the drained water either side of and on the equator with a pencil in the middle, on equator it went straight down LIES LIES LIES my world has crumbled
or imagine it?
filthy lies from the mouth of lisa simpson(actually i think it was bart, when he was prank calling a guy in australia, but never mind)
i saw it on the x files !
because he didn't believe lisas explanation of why he lost a toothpaste race for having the outside track.
And I didnt imagine that experiment I remember being slighly amazed in a kinda boring way it was daytime bbc2 rubbish
it says it can be seen from space, in favourable conditions, if you know where to look. but so can many man made things.
to think a thing a couple of metres wide would be the only man made thing visible would be stupid though. its amazing what people believe if it written in a book.
