Google Earth Forces $600,000 Navy Bill
By: Nathan Weinberg
The Navy is embarking on a $600,000 alteration of a meaningless barracks facility near San Diego, changing the look of the 40-year old building...
...so it no longer resembles a swastika. Because of the availability and popularity of Google Maps, Google Earth, and other satelite maps services, people noticed the shape of the building, which matches the logo of the Nazi party, causing a mini and constly uproar that otherwise would never have happened.
The Navy said officials noted the buildings shape after the groundbreaking in 1967 but decided against changing it at the time because it wasnt obvious from the ground. Aerial photos made available on such services as Windows Live and Google Earth in recent years have since revealed the buildings shape to a wide audience.
On the one hand, the buildings shape is unusual but efficient, and not that big a deal, and they could have just ignored it. On the other hand, if we can get the swastika building changed, perhaps we can start cleaning up all the buildings left behind by the Freemasons before their strange architecture begins confusing our Thetan masters.
