Illusions are always part of any successful marketing
campaign - to enable you to see what the advertiser
wants you to see. Over the years you have seen the
"Face on Mars" which Alien-Life Conspiracy theorists
insist is proof of intelligence beyond our planet (see
http://www.planetperplex.com/en/item262 to see the
face, then click on the picture at that link for another
view). Of course there are also photos of the image of
Satan in the smoke of the World Trade Center attacks.
I always thought it looked more like Keith Richards.
And as there are no actual pictures of Satan, I think I
am closer to the mark.
Illusionary photos can be a way to help you with your
online marketing campaign. I have just discovered
an interesting image as I was looking at a map of the
Chesapeake bay on Google maps. Some of you may
have already seen this. This could be a great tool
for use by environmentalists.
Environmentalists fall into three categories; Enviro-Nazi
(Eco-terrorists), Chicken Little (Al Gore), or
Science-Focused (Forms a hypothesis, yet is willing to
form a new hypothesis when the conclusions do not match
the initial hypothesis based on more accurate data.)
If you are one of the enviro-types above, or if you are
just someone who wants to see a weird quirky picture
that you can use to scare your friends, make a point,
provide a theory, rant against Google, Microsoft, Big
Oil, welfare cheats, Liberals, Conservatives, LaRoucians,
or decry Bush, Clinton, McCain, Obama or any other
glorified government employee --then here it is.

Google seems to have updated the maps with more
appealing blue water.
Anyway, regardless of your beliefs, background,
political leanings, religion, mental stability, and
whether you use
corn gluten instead of fertilizer, please enjoy and
pass this article link on!
