It’s cool what you can do when you know when the satellite is coming. The Firefox crop circle is one of my favorites. What would you do in your yard or neighborhood if you knew when the next time the camera is going to be over your head?
This is one of my new favoites! I really like strips like this; they’ve got character.
make a help sign out of the bed sheets.
Google Earth, a new form of advertising.
I’m betting the ’08 elections will pour a good chunk of money into this new advertising tool.
“Vote for Chuck Goodrick, his ideas pop up everywhere”
Farmers would be the new upper class, no Texas Tea required.
I hope the mapping satellite doesn’t
get tangled in Biff’s eyebrows!
You can also find Area 51 on google maps. Fun stuff 🙂
I try my best to look adorable whenever satellites pass by. Although the last time that happened, I had bright pink hair.
I’m not sure anyone remembers, but there were people getting photographed laying naked on their roofs. Got google earth in big trouble.
I take my idea from Foxtrot, but his comic isn’t really all that good, so screw ‘im.
STOP SPYING ON ME
Something like this happened to me once.
I was looking on google earth, and I saw myself walking around outside.
I couldn’t do anything but sit there and contemplate the profoundness of it.
Hah, he’s looking spiffy!
How can you find out when the satellite is overhead? Is there a website with the info?
Biff looks good today! Is he going to do anything with his eyebrows? A little hair gel would make for a memorable satellite image.
maybe he has to look good because his eyebrows can be seen from space!
I don’t know about doing anything special, but I like the fact that you can see the oil stain on my BF’s Parents Drive way from space. Well, at least I can ’cause I know where to look.
I’d hold a sign with the cliched “HI MOM” on it and a big smile on my face.
i would probably get all my friends and relatives in my back gerden/yard, wih different colous shirts on (probably red and white) and have them all spell “LOOK HERE”
that would be so cool 🙂
I’d try to shoot a model rocket right when it was passing by, then go see if I could see it on the interblags.
Put Christmas lights on the roof a la “Calvin and Hobbes.”
Fireworks. A non-stop hour long Fireworks display during the time it’s passing my area. That’d be awesome.
Woah! Crazy perspective in the background there with the towels…
Looking at the picture it looks nice, kinda pops out, but when you look directly at the towel racks…what’s with those bars? o_O
I can’t stop looking…
I’d moon it.
How coincidental; just recently I started using Google Earth to find my way around the new place I live in.
I’d love to find out when the satellite comes round – it must be due where I used to live actually, judging by how my old college looked on it (i.e. nothing like it does now) it can only mean the photos they have for that area are over 2 years old.
I would shoot it down!!! Darn government aint gonna activate that chip in my head if I got anything to say about it!!!!!
Write my name in big letters on my street so that i would be famous!
I acctually saw a satelite passing over my house yesterday! Looked almost like a plane, but without the blinking. Or a moving star. Or something like that.
I decided to use Google Earth to find my house. It’s weird seeing your house from space and knowing that any random stranger can see it too. It’s funny in my case because it’s wrong about where I live. If you type in my address you actually get a house down the street from me.
Big Brother is watching, and just like my big brother he can’t do anything right.
I’d put the name of my favorite website in rocks, or maybe, nope, no easter eggs here, go away and find a nude sunbather instead.
Then again, I don’t have enough time/space/rocks/permission for that.
So your plan for the evening is to use Google Earth in the hope of finding a picture of a nude sunbather. If you’re very very lucky, you will find a low resolution picture of a naked person.
Little known fact, the internet also many high resolution pictures of naked people. Try and look some time.
nce my friend took his laptop outsied when the sattleite was over him and he saw himself
Hah, the towels had a paradox.
The towel in the back is overlapping the front one without turning or curving at all.
Cronyne, the top one sticks out farther from the wall.
Cronyne, yes I know what you were talking about, read my explanation again.
It is a little odd even still. My assumption is that Biff’s wall is tilted. I mean, clearly the top rack is in front of the bottom one, but both seem to stick just as far from the wall. The architecture of Biff’s house has always been strange, would it surprise anybody if Biff’s walls were slanted?
I guess biff couldn’t afford to move into a house that’s not on a hill.
Huh, when exactly does it pass over the East coast of America? I wanna do something goofy. 😛
Woohoo! Finally caught up on the Biffation! Bifftacular I say, Bifftacular!
Living here in Lebnon county, I’d I’d put something like “Why you reading this arsehole?” in a local farm field.
I actually managed to get myself and a bunch of friends to lay down so that we made the word “HI” in our street a few years back. It was on google maps for a short while, and we thought it was pretty cool. Nothing like a friendly satellite image, eh?
How does one go about finding a satellite’s position above the earth?
Here’s a program that lets you track the satellites:
I think I’d bleach a silhouette or two of some of my favorite webcomic characters in my lawn along with the web-adresses. Probably Slick and Monique from Sinfest (.net) and maybe Spiky from Spiky Haired Dragon Worthless Knight (linked) since they have T-Shirts and stuff with silhouette versions of those characters. Oh… umm… and of course Biff! I’m sure doing a Biff silhouette wouldn’t be that hard and it is how I got the idea after all.
I get realy really paranoid, and slightly creeped out by the fact that there are cameras everywhere watching, recording, studing, everything we do, and say. And knowing that they’re in space doesn’t help much.
Siah: Build an anti-satellite missile system in your backyard?
I’m surprised that people haven’t done similar things in the desert outside Phoenix (there’s *a lot* of desert out there) but it’d be more difficult than cutting a crop circle. I’d like to do something like this, but I don’t own nearly enough property. What would be even better than predicting the mapping satellites would be predicting where and when the Street View vans would be passing by.
I know that I wanted to write things on the top of my university building (small campus) so I’d know when the picture was taken. Maybe I’ll be able to persuade John to help me with that next year.
i’d burn a picture of biff into the feild near my house! lol either that or get a big sign that says “Envi was here”
In the picture of my street you can see me walking my dog down the street in the park.
protend to be setting up a nukes
I’d just go for the old “Kilroy was here” bit, myself.
Though it might be fun to set up a fake UFO in my backyard, just to see what people would say..
@paul No he’s looking Biffy
I would pull a Foxtrot comic and write STOP SPYING ON ME on my roof =D
He should break out the 70’s suit again!
Chris, now knowing your mailing address from the books I will now google your house, kust like I google my friends house
And after i posted that i tried it, Chris any hints? please?
…You know what I’d do?
I would get all my friends together (So thats me, my pet dust bunny and my photo of biff, if you were wondering) and we’d all have a party, and we’d have banners saying “We will miss you, personal privacy”
Or, I would get a big piece of cardboard and write BIFF RULES in the middle and get people to sign it.
And, BTW, Biff is my best friend, I bet you didn’t know that!
We were created in the same science lab!
(Thats why we are allowed really high-tech stuff, like shrinking rays)
and now everyone that reads the comments is going to log off and try this…
