Unidentified Flying Water Droplet

Friday, 5th January 2007 by

We’ve had UFOs and Water Droplets, but never before have we seen an Unidentified Flying Water Droplet! Even if this is just an area of land that Google hasn’t got the image for, then what happened? How did the satellite miss it? Is there some sort of anti-photography cloaking-device located here? Conspiracy! Conspiracy! Via Digg.

Le Circuit de Reims-Gueux

First used in 1926, le Circuit de Reims-Gueux was a French Formula One and sports car racing circuit built on the public roads between the villages of Gueux and Thillois. The circuit hosted its first French Grand Prix in 1932 and continued to hold the event until 1966. The track closed for good in 1972, but the roads are still in place, and many traces of the old circuit can still be found, including the pit stalls, paddock, and spectator bleachers.
