Humanclock.com shows a photograph of the current time,
with the photo changing every minute of the day (all 1,440 occuring
minutes on Earth!) Thus you end up with a rotating picture clock sorta
How the time is actually displayed is a whole different matter. A lot of photos have the time written on a crummy cardboard sign, while other photos might have the current time in a more edible format, such as olives. There are photos below sea level and ones over two miles above sea level. There are even clock pictures with people who played at Woodstock.
I am trying to get a decent cross section of Earth inhabitants on this
website. So I want photos of minivan-driving soccer moms, trustafarian
hippies, punkers, football players, pimps, players, private eyes,
Commodore 64 programmers, Who's the Boss? fan fiction writers,
bible-belt preachers, politicians, actors, musicians, auto mechanics,
doctors, catergorically defined people who don't feel they belong in a
category, tree-huggers, rednecks, snooty rich people, snooty poor
people, pictures from famous places, pictures of famous people, people
who can solve a Rubick's cube, jocks, nerds, cheerleaders, plumbers, D
& D players, etc."
According to the townspeople, the illnesses began after the meteorite crashed and they began to touch the glowing rock believing it had some type of monetary value.
Aside from the hundreds of townspeople that were affected, Tejada reported that 8 police officers had to be hospitalized after having taken samples of the meteorite.
Blood samples are being taken and there are several teams of specialists in the area.
Scientists confirmed yesterday that the meteorite that caused a 17 meter (55 foot) wide and 5 meter (16 foot) deep crater in Puno, Peru was a chondrite meteorite. The water in the crater is to be drained and several teams of scientists from different countries will take samples from the crater itself and from surrounding areas. -living in peru
There is much discussion on the Internet
today concerning a reported
meteorite impact in Peru which may have gouged a 10- to 30-meter wide crater near Peru's border with Bolivia. Bad-smelling fumes from the crater are said to have sickened
dozens and perhaps hundreds of people in a nearby village. Could this be true?
There is indeed a hole in the ground in Peru, pictured above, and
by all accounts it smells bad, but it is not likely of cosmic origin.
In order to blast a 30-meter crater, a meteorite would have to hit the ground with about as much energy as 0.1-to-1 kiloton of TNT--akin to a tactical nuclear
weapon. This should leave a clear signal in worldwide seismic
and infrasound records, but so far no such signals are being reported by authorities. In short, we remain unconvinced. Stay tuned for
UPDATE: A scientist from Peru's Geological, Mining and Metallurgical Institute says
that a chondritic meteorite is at the bottom of the crater: news
report. There is also mounting
evidence that the crater is associated at least coincidentally
with a grave health problem in the area.
