    Karel, mind putting me as Andy M, USA in the rank since to further differentiate me from Andy McConnell? Plus, this way I can represent, like Milosh, Serbia!

    Glad I did not troll too much news based on your hint 😉 So the curling rocks are from here? I have to admit, those curling rocks are beautiful. I am just now getting introduced to curling during these Olympics. Looks like fun…

    For some reason, I started looking for this around the UK. Saw this, along the way. Neat! It’s an airplane and a ghost plane with a HUGE contrail: http://maps.google.com/maps?hl=en&t=k&ll=53.415934,-10.192818&z=16

    I think that came out that way due to the optical sensor in the imaging equipment. It’s built to focus on the ground, but since the plane is so high it is defocused. There must be separate color sensors which are composited to create the imagery. This defocusing must cause this chromatic aberration.

  23. Navassa Island off the southwest coast of haiti
