    Cool picture

    I have a coworker who is quite the photographer. He sent me this and I liked it so much I thought I'd post it for you all. It is a time lapse photo on a clear starry night at my tower.

    Looks like a batch of "shooting stars" whizzing past the tower. Really cool photo.

    The fun part is to realize the effect you see is caused not by the stars moving but by the rotation of the earth. Nice Pic.

    Only two defining forces have ever offered to die for you, Jesus Christ and the American GI. One died for your soul, the other for your freedom.

    I asked my stock broker the other day, what I should be investing in ....his reply, canned goods n ammo !!!

    Next thing, you'll try to convince us the earth is round, or something silly like that.



    I had the same thought when I saw it.

    Thanks for posting, it's a very cool pic.
