Yay for Google Earth!

About a week ago, Google Earth update KL with high resolution mapping data! So now KL is shown in it's full 1 meter glory. For those who don't know, 1 meter resolution means objects 1 meter or larger are discernable on the map.

Right then, here are some examples.

And finally, taken from the targetting camera from a Tomahawk Cruise Missle. :D

Anyway, you may notice the odd choice of photos, I guess these will interest specific people out there. Also, for those who have Google Earth, I have a file with bookmarks of interesting places like major shopping complexes and landmarks i made that you can ask me for. I'd upload it, but i have no webspace. :D

A Pet Peeve on the Quantum Scale

Call me Anal, but it irks me whenever the term ‘Quantum Leap’ is used to describe a huge change. Does anybody understand the definition of 'Quantum'?

According to Google Define, a ‘Quantum’ is 'The smallest discrete amount of any quantity'. Logically, a Quantum Leap is therefore a change/rise/increase on the absolute SMALLEST discernable magnitude.

In fact, the word ‘Quantum’ is often used in the realm of science to describe the relations of atoms and subatomic particles. It’s THAT minute.

I blame the TV show by the same name for this travesty of logic.
