    Ancient news, although mansion tagging is taking it to a new level.

    Always a lot more fun to do it on the homes and businesses in the airport landing path.

    Gah, was just about to post this! Curse you mroogle!

    He was probably hoping it would sit there for a couple of years until Google Maps took a picture of it, there used to be something written in the crops near Edinburgh Airport (although that was probably targeted at passing planes!)

    I'd say that is a MRoogle success! :)


    I wonder if this sort of thing will become more and more common, especially for the sake of advertising. "Ooooh look, the Nike forest, the Starbucks wheat field, the microsoft sand dunes."

    Perhaps it was modesty? It seems he could have made it quite a bit longer. ;)

    Personally I don't think the nuts are a great success…

    I think he could have made it quite a bit more cock-like.

    Well, what do you expect these days from the lazy kids of the wealthy.

    I'm really surprised that he actually stooped to manual labor carrying paint onto the roof and getting his hands dirty.

    Personally, the expected poor performance was probably par for the class.

    In rural areas in the states you will see quite a few air signs painted on roofs and such. Some are as simple as the town name which is handy for navigation. Others are more specific such as good places to eat. After all pilots are known to fly to places to eat, er. conduct extensive training missions. ;)

    I don't recall seeing much when I flew over in Germany or here in Asia.

    Who knows, maybe someday we'll see neon lights pointed to the sky for advertising. :)

    Yeah.
    Mommy!
    What's that?
    Definitley. Just not on your own house.
    I dunno. Maybe worth more after the painting?:D
    That would be great! Imagine that on Google Maps!
    Yeah. It's quite incredible that these rich kids would actually do that. Maybe he hired somebody?

    Well if he had hired Banksy the house would be worth a lot more than a miilion.
    :D
