Scour Google Earth or Google Maps long enough and you can find a lot of strange and very cool things.

The newest rage in automobile parking.

Strange grid pattern in the Canary Basin of the Atlantic Ocean (search "Cruiser Tablemount" and look just east of it for the artifact)

Giant skeleton of sorts in Saudi Arabia directly south of Jabal Al Lawz.

What was funny was when people thought that they'd discovered Atlantis. But those patterns are from when ships scan the ocean floor in a grid pattern.

I like the ones of planes.

This was taken from somewhere in Paris. That would probably make this a Mirage III.

I'm not saying it is Atlantis, but if what you say is the case, why don't more grids like that show up anywhere else?

Yeah, the one Bugabear posted isn't showing up for me either, but I quoted his message and pasted the url into the address bar to see it.

At any rate, I edited my posts and added direct links to the images for you.

Yeah sorry. I'm a complete noob with forums. How do I add images the way you guys do? When I click insert image it asks for a url so I had to find where I originally got them from and paste it in. And if I do attachments they appear as thumbnails.
