Monkey, Nazca Desert
20-MAY-2007

Monkey, Nazca Desert

The Nazca Lines are a series of geoglyphs located in the Nazca Desert, a high arid plateau that stretches 53 miles or more than 80 kilometers between the towns of Nazca and Palpa on the Pampas de Jumana in Peru. They were created by the Nazca culture between 200 BC and 700 AD. There are hundreds of individual figures, ranging in complexity from simple lines to stylized hummingbirds, spiders, monkeys, and lizards. The Nazca lines cannot be recognized as coherent figures except from the air. Since it is presumed the Nazca people could never have seen their work from this vantage point, there has been much speculation on the builders' abilities and motivations, as well as the whole purpose of this amazing undertaken. No theory has been proven up to our days...

Obviously this is a drawing of a space alien (illegal) with a spring activated manuel jet pack on his back!
Monkeys! Come on now, what self respecting alien would draw a monkey?

Yes, Unesco cannot match me because its peaceful organisation and doesn't possesses powers of ultimate evil, which obviously were engaged to get the shot of such spectacular clarity and also at 250 km/hour speed... Needless to mention...

Hello Eldar.... this appears to be a terrific aerial shot documenting perhaps one of the most incredible planetary phenomenons of all time --- and is clearer with more depth that the official photo of the region by Unesco. So the question is how did you do it..... be honest.... did you cheat by using your evil supernatural powers o son of bezelbulb? Fantastic. Michael.

I first heard aboutthe Nazca lines a few days ago, and thought it was a joke! Seems to be so unbelievable. It must have been a really awesome sight - lucky you.
