I was browsing around Meridian, Idaho on Google Maps and realized there was a huge rift running along Cherry Lane/Fairview boulevard. It's there for everyone to see: the rift in the time space continuum as caught on Google Maps. I'm pretty sure that Jean Luc Picard Patrick Stewart is somehow involved, though I'm almost positive that William Shatner has nothing to do with it. Oddly enough, the rift has watermarks bearing © 2005 Google, which leads me to believe they are somehow responsible. Unrelatedly, I'm not normally a fan of the Oregon coast (excepting Cape Perpetua), but check out these cool panoramas. Also of interest are these cool computer graphic movies involving water, sharks, and helicopters (always a fun mix).
