Google Earth

Let's see who can find the most fucked up things on Google's Satallite map!

Here's mine:

Image

Apparent nuclear test area in Nevada, just east of Area 51.. all those little round circular dot things are the aftermath of underground nuclear explosions. Hundreds of them. This is only about half of them, but I had to zoom in enough that you could tell they were craters... And that big one at the top is an above-ground explosion crater.

Also, check out North Korea, particularly Pyongyang or any other North Korea city... they're freaky. Utterly devoid of cars. They look like ghost towns compared to other cities.

They have some very very very strict laws on what you can do in the streets etc. I think there was a documentry about north korea on the BBC a few years ago and they smuggled cameras into cities. Everything was absolutely spotless.

Target Test Centers for Planes ? Just to test how they react upon diffrent formations... Most spectacular things don`t come to surface since Cold War..

Wolf, they are near Area 51 (west of it), somewhere near the Nevada/California border. Look for the lake (fairly easy to spot) and you should be able to find it.
