Loch Ness on Google Earth
I missed this while on vacation. A security guard looking at Google Earth in his sparetime found what he believes might be evidence of the Loch Ness monster. Almost everyone else thinks it looks obviously like a boat, except for Loch Ness researcher Adrian Shine who is quoted as saying it looks "really intriguing" and deserves "further study."

If you zoom in, you can clearly see the square corners of the transom. Which should put the matter to rest.

Unless Nessie has a square ass, that is.

Sure that's Nessie, and an associated "story" "Haunting face crying a river of tears as glacier melts into the sea"


isn't photoshopped at all...

The guys at Google love practical jokes- what if they put that on Google Earth for someone to find?

I know that on one of the Google themes featuring water, if you visit the page at exactly midnight then Nessie shows up and then submerges again...
