The Best Picture of Mount Everest Ever

Check this out. This is way cool. I have to link to it, because it's too wide to fit on my page.

Mount Everest from one mile above

That is an amazing shot. You can even see the curve of the earth.

Neat photo! The balloon is 36000 feet above sea level and the temperature is -56 degrees Centigrade. Being that cold it's a bit difficult to accept global warming as potential threat.

Global warming is so full of shit. It's based on a few hundred years of weather record keeping, when the earth is billions of years old and has gone through ice ages, warming periods, more ice ages, more warming periods, and so on and so on.

Didn't have cars and electricity during those ice ages and warming periods either.

I don't know how people can be so dumb and ignorant on purpose.

But it IS a cool photo, isn't it :)

I love seeing the curve of the earth like that.
