What on Earth! Part 2 [Answers]

Here are the answers to the WOE II Quiz;

[1] Is the Tiananmen Square where a bloody pro-democracy protest took place in 1989. The protest turned into a massacre by the Chinese Communist government and more that 800 people are estimated to be killed. The following image is one of the famous images from the crackdown that followed the rally;














[2] This is the satellite image of my apartment! :p

[3] The city of Miami! The islands that appear in the images can normally be seen during CSI: Miami and other movies shot in Miami.

[4] Yes the city is Berlin where the famous Berlin Wall stood. After the fall of the wall in 1989, the two Germans were unified in 1990. The image shows the newly constructed Berlin train station to be opened before the World Cup Finals.

[5] This is Anfield, the home stadium of the Liverpool Football Club. And am not kidding in saying this is one of the greatest football club in the world and the best from England because, Liverpool has won more league titles than any other English club in existence and more champion league titles than any other team in England.

[6] This is the satellite image of CERN, The European Organization for Nuclear Research. Currently it hosts the largest physics experiment in the world, which is the LHC (to be completed in 2007) and is situated near Geneva. The particle physics ring or collider ring itself runs bellow both Switzerland and France.

[7] Mount Everest. This is actually a tilted image from Google Earth, somehow the terrain image is not very clear.

I read a book written by a student who was present during the Tiananmen Square stuff when I was in high school. It stayed with me a long time; I recently reread it. Powerful stuff. Makes me grateful of where I live.

First Contact, Remixed

On the last Thursday of the year, about half past 10 local time, they landed in the garden of the White House. The security never knew what hit them, in no time all the men in blue and black and whatever colour they’re in were rolling on the ground laughing. Apparently the aliens hit them with laughing gas. Good, now we know they have some sense of humour and wont bomb us…hemmm…senseless. Another half an hour went past, the president was hiding under his table, the secret service nowhere in sight. Thinking of the worst, he reached for his cell phone and dialled 911 with his trembling fingers. So much for him, the aliens UFO, which funnily enough is shaped like a saucer, lighted up like a Las Vegas casino, sans neon signboard. A door opened up and from it rolled down a weird looking robot with a huge plasma screen TV for its head. Words fail to describe alien technology, literally, so I’m using earth analogy. Oh, and by the way, I am the dude, who saw it all.

The president peering from …

...you

for, its during the rainy seasons
when we sit admiring
the cool breeze and wandering droplets
we realize we are admiring the beauty of loneliness
from afar, of you and me
