I posted this last night but I can't find it anywhere. I hope this isn't a repeat. Check out this video of a guy that mailed a gps unit around the world to create this drawing. http://www.biggestdrawingintheworld.com/drawing.aspx

I'd have saved on postage and time and just used a sharpie on a map Wink But hey, to each their own!

Yeah I saw that. Cool idea, but there's no way it's real. Smile

It doesn't seem possible to me either but the videos and pictures make it seem feasible. The note in red at the bottom says that DHL did not transport the gps at any time.

Oh, that's new. They didn't admit that when I saw it.

Read all of the red text now. It is fictional only. No DHL and no GPS was every shipped anywhere.
