    School boy prank makes it to Microsoft Virtual Earth

    This has been in a local paper round here (Southampton) and so i had to see it for myself.

    On a last day of term, some leavers from Bellemoor School, Southampton "left their mark" on the school. Little did they know that imaging satellites would catch it for the world to see.

    go to http://local.live.co.uk and search for bellemoor school (postcode SO15 7QU) and zoom in as close as you get over the schools field in "aerial" view

    enjoy, i wet myself laughing

    EDIT: it seems it might be easier to see in "Birds Eye View"

    What the hell are you talking about? I cant see anything?
    If someone tells you to sudo rm -rf ANYTHING, then DO NOT DO IT!

    Don't run any command with rm in it unless you know EXACTLY what you're doing.

    Yeah I don't see anything either.
    There's only 10 types of people in the world. Those that understand binary and those that don't.

    Are you talking about those designs in the field? They look pretty cool but I can't tell what they're supposed to be.

    Edit: Haha, I was looking at the wrong field. Good one

    OK, I couldn't find it at first, either. It's not in the sports field, its in a patch of grass between the school buildings.

    Reminds me of the prank some boys did when I left school: they got onto the roof and wrote STALAG LUFT III on the roof.

    eh. It's happened before, there was another instance where some students drew it with chalk on the roof of their school and it got captured on satellite images and immortalized inside google earth. this is probably in google earth too.

    Microsoft virtual earth? shame on you
