KFC space logo
Yum! Brands Inc created the logo near Rachel, Nevada, and claimed it’s the first ad that can be seen from space. If you recall, the same company had previously wanted to beam a laser ad up onto the moon for Pizza Hut, but had later scaled back to buying ad placement on the side of a Russian rocket.

The Palm Islands of Dubai
The Palm Islands are artificial islands in Dubai, United Arab Emirates on which major commercial and residential infrastructure will be constructed. They are being constructed by Nakheel Properties, a property developer in the United Arab Emirates, who hired Belgian and Dutch dredging and marine contractor Jan De Nul and Van Oord, some of the world’s specialists in land reclamation. The islands are the Palm Jumeirah, the Palm Jebel Ali and the Palm Deira.
She’s got a massive syndicated show and a magazine called O, and she was dubbed the most powerful celebrity in the world by Forbes. Why shouldn’t Oprah get her own corn maze? An Arizona farmer created this 2004 tribute to the TV talk-show host.
Iraq’s Bloody Lake
This blood-red lake outside Iraq’s Sadr City garnered a fair share of macabre speculation when it was noticed in 2007. One tipster told the tech blog Boing Boing that he was “told by a friend” that slaughterhouses in Iraq sometimes dump blood into canals. No one has offered an official explanation, but it’s more likely that the color comes from sewage, pollution or a water-treatment process.
Did anybody else notice the 666 on top of one of the buildings in the 3rd picture?
um, no. I noticed that the image date on top of one of the buildings says 2006 though. Were you thinking of the ventilation fans?
The guitar shaped mansion is right by my house. Used to be owned by a guy named Larry House, one of the founders of Health South. 55,000 sq ft. house. Used to be one of the largest in the country.
the 666 isn’t actually there. its a trick of the eye and if you look close its more like 888. They are vents on the top of the building.
Interesting photos, but a bit of background on some of them would not have been too much to ask for… particularly the historic sites.
According to wikipedia and every other web source I saw other than the flickr page you got the photo from says that the Osmington White Horse was carved in 1808 and is of King George III.
