Nothing To See Here

While South Korea gets its panties in a bunch over the invasive Google Earth, one Italian computer programmer has made himself famous:

Luca Mori of Sorbelo was looking at a satellite image of his area, located near Parma, when he noticed unusual shading near his home, the London Telegraph reported Wednesday.

He said the area had an oval shaded form more than 500 yards long, with some unusual rectangular shadows nearby.

Archaeologists subsequently determined the rectangular lines were, most likely, a buried structure and the oval area was likely the course of an ancient river . . .

“At first they thought the site might be Bronze Age, but a closer inspection turned up ceramic and stone pieces that showed it was a Roman villa built some time just before the birth of Christ,” he told the newspaper.

I looked and looked at the map of my area. All I see are trees.
