    It's true, the History Channel mentioned it during the program, SR-71 Blackbird: Theory to Reality. That's crazy, ever since then, I've closed my blinds while I'm gone from home

    I would have thought any of those images will be kinda "classified".........

    But after a little "research", found this one

    http://images.google.com/imgres?imgu...lr%3D%26sa%3DN


    I don't know if it was taken by a Blackbird, but it would be a good reason for the whole thing.....
    Is it better to be told to "Have a Nice Day" by someone who doesn't mean it, or to be told to "Eff-OFF" by someone who does?

    Those, I belive are salt evaporator ponds. Several more north where Hayward meets the bay, just south of San Mateo Bridge. The ones by the bridge are still in use.

    Jorge, I believe John is right.

    If you look at the whitest one you can see where the salt is being collected with bulldozers and transported north with large dump trucks to the two large piles.

    Default Same Car at Google Campus?

    I found what looks like a blue Porsche 911 Carrera at the Google Campus. I also found two other blue Porsche 911 Carreras at the Google Campus. Are these three cars that same, or do those billionares there all have blue Porsches? (I included a picture of my 911 Carrera too.) lol

    Sorry chap... the one with the green tag is a V-Dub Beetle (New Model) and the other two are saloons, certainly not 911's...

    I recently sent a letter to our state senator about those images for the science program I'm in thru my school district. We are trying to see if soil is shifting in different parts of the world, but I've waited over a week and there's no response

    Software is like entropy. It is difficult to grasp, weighs nothing, and obeys the second law of thermodynamics; i.e., it always increases.
