So far, I have received one answer and it was correct. The answer came from a GHI person, who we all know are smarter than the average monkey. :wink:

Three right answers now…


#3

4 correct entries now.


#4

I trust my answer was correct as I had the guys at Langley fly a drone over it and confirm the location and the dudes at the Crystal Palace checked the photo in their database so I think I should be OK. They asked if I wanted an analysis of the shadows to get a date and time, but I figured that would be over kill and declined.

You guys are funny,
isn’t the answer:
he is in a front of a BIG Cannon?
Cheers :slight_smile:


#6

Actually the specific location of the photo is https://www.ghielectronics.com/uploads/forum/img/8866_Gun_large.jpg


#7

I’m actually more concerned about what he’s doing in front of that big cannon with hands down in front of him facing the wall… :wink:


#8

Number of dots on the map indicates that you should have at least 40 correct entries :wink:


#9

Just to keep things correct… That is not me in the picture. :-[


#10

What dots on map?

Five correct entries now…


#11

Dots on this map:

Looking at that map and the densities I’m wondering if geeks on the eastern side of the US are much smarter and hipper then geeks on the western side as it seem the eastern side of the US has far more Gadgeteer dudes and we all know that using Gadgeteer is a definite sign of superior intelligence and future vision.

In Canada there are only 19 people living there and all of us are Gadgeteer dudes.

If only there were a module to thaw the ice, I could get all the folks in the Toronto area to buy one.

A lot of us are without hydro due to the freezing, ice and snapping trees.


#14

Ah, that map. It is interesting that there is only one dot in Nova Scotia.


#15

Sorry to hear that. Freezing rain can do a lot of damage for sure. It did in Ottawa when I lived there.


#16

Currently there are five correct answers.

Everyone who submitted a answer had it correct. So, it appears that there is a “standard” method for determining the location shown in the image.

Less than twelve hours until the contest is over. Get to work and find the location!


#17

I would say the “standard” method is: been there or not ;D


#18

wicked, i thought “America” wouldn’t be close enough :whistle:


#19

@ Justin - your answer was disqualified because you did not specify North or South America. :naughty:
