However, while scrolling around on Google Earth, an internet map that allows the viewer to look at satellite images of anywhere on the globe, scientists discovered an unexpected patch of green.

Facinating. :)

I hope the area stays as inhospitable and untouched as possible too. :wink:

And that's a new avatar right? *not sure*

I can't see why anyone could get sick of bugs (used as a colloquial term).

I think that bugs are better than people because if they don't like you they just bite you. They don't lie about it- and you don't have to talk to them and never have to see them again when you get bored with them- unlike people who tend to stick around regardless. If you can't get to sleep than you can just watch the spider/moth on your ceiling.

*sarcasm* The above sounds delightful. :roll:

Yeah, I noticed the avatar because baby elephants look very interesting, and cute too I guess.:)
