I made up the acronym...it's weather balloon aerial photography.

Pretty cool:

They got some neat photos too.

The concept and the pictures were great. But, what stuck with me was the picture of the gentleman grinding away on steel ... sparks are flying all over and there he is with no safety glasses. Almost everything I enjoy utilizes my eyesight. To me, that picture is the equivalent of fingers dragging across a black board.

speaking of dragging fingers across a blackboard...

I work in the automation industry... I spent the 1st 6 years living in auto plants... GM, Nissan, etc... we designed the software that controlled the transfer of parts in and between 400 ton hydraulic presses...

When I saw THIS, I just about crapped my pants...

Reminds me of Milwaukee Plastics back in the 60's... OSHA approved?
