^That's a really good one.
To me it looks like you're saying that banning bombs didn't stop bombs going off therefore there is no point to gun control because it's a mental health issue.

Today's Google doodle is new Horizons Pluto Flyby. This doodle is worldwide, except for Svalbard, maybe Svalbard is anti-pluto.  :lol1:



Earth is getting its first chance for an up close and personal peek at Pluto, the ball of rock and ice orbiting at the furthest edge of our solar system.

It’s all thanks to New Horizons, a thousand-pound space probe NASA sent spinning through space at 31,000 miles per hour. The probe’s interstellar jaunt spanned more than 9 years and 3 billion miles. That’s one heck of a commute!

The pictures New Horizons will send back to Earth are the first of their kind, painting scientists a more vivid picture of the far-off dwarf planet. Armed with these new insights, we’ll be able to pave a path for the next milestone in mankind’s journey of cosmic discovery.

Today’s Doodle was created by Kevin Laughlin in honor of New Horizons’ intrepid voyage to Pluto’s distant corner of the solar system. Celebrate this scientific breakthrough on NASA’s New Horizons YouTube page, https://www.youtube.com/user/NASANewHorizons where you’ll find videos detailing the extraordinary discoveries the space probe uncovers.

I was looking at Svalbard on google maps and saw something weird in the water, and now I can't stop thinking about it.

Can't see anything special.

That coordinate is too exact, you have to zoom out from it.

The line off the top of the formation intersects with two other lines, and all three appear to lead to an inlet. Do you think it could have been caused by ship activity? 79.030373, 8.120621

Weird "trails".

If you follow them, some make perpendicular angles or ploughing field shapes. Don't think ships can do that.  :hide:

Yeah, it was the big field area that caught my attention, then I started following the trails. The big field area doesn't make any sense, but I thought the lines might be from ships because lines can be found in other places too, they're just a little different than those lines, but that might be because of a difference in climate. 5.9911996,-105.752724 One of hose lines lead to a weird field shape too.

All I see is a cross-shaped area where they have ocean floor mapping integrated into the map :dunno:
I apologize for speaking out of turn. You are better than me in every possible way. I am indeed the biggest coward around.

Google claims ships is exactly what causes it, echo sounding the ocean floor, which means the tracks aren't really there. http://googleblog.blogspot.ca/2009/02/atlantis-no-it-atlant-isnt.html That makes sense for the tracks, but I read in another article, that the odd field type patches are probably where the ship just bounced around in a single area for a while with the sonar on. That doesn't really seem to explain the first field I posted with the sharp edges and, or the other field that looks so very squared.

Nor why some trails are so tiny. Even when using a small vessel for shallow waters, that should not impact the sonar equipment in the same scale, should it?

Does make sense to map the waters too though.
