This heart-shaped island in the Adriatic became a hit on Google Earth for Valentine's Day. The uninhabited island is only 130,000 square yards and is called Galesnjak. The owner didn't even know how perfectly this island off the Croatian coast was until he was swamped with requests from couples to stay there.

Dubbed the "Badlands Guardian" by locals, this geological marvel (Google Earth coordinates 50.010083,-110.113006) in Alberta, Canada, bears an uncanny resemblance to a human head wearing a full Native American headdress--and earphones, to boot. Of course, The Guardian was produced naturally.

Some of the sights you find in Google Earth are just plain mysterious. For example, why is a fighter jet parked (Google Earth coordinates 48.825183,2.1985795) in what looks to be a residential neighborhood lot near Paris?

This is a US Navy building in Coronado, Ca. that was unintentionally built in the shape of a swastika. Now, because of a public uproar, the Navy will be spending $600,000 to alter the shape of the building.

In the early days of Firefox, a few devoted fans wanted to generate more PR for their beloved site and so gathered a team of people in Amity, Oregon, to recreate the Firefox logo in a field; their very own fox crop.

Last year, one of the Google Earth Community members called 'ear1grey' posted an amazing discovery. He found a huge picture (36 miles tall) of Santa!

So here's a giant Ipod Shuffle! It looks like a farmer's field with a horse pen or something on it? Either that or a hard core apple enthusiast. Unfortunately, it looks like he moved the pen on the map since it was first spotted.

Google Earth doesn't have advertising, unless you consider the corporate logos and trademarks big enough to be seen from space. Check out this massive Coca-Cola logo (-18.529225,-70.25002) etched into a hillside of Chile with 70,000 Coke bottles. Haven't they heard of recycling?

I can't believe how stupid some people actually are. $600,000 to change the shape of a building because it takes on the form of a symbol that a group of individuals in history once used to identify themselves with? Are you effing serious people? First of all, the swastika is a symbol that predates Nazism; they didn't come up with it, they just decided to associate it with themselves. Granted, we don't idolize or in anyway glorify the image, only because of how serious those events in history were, but at the same time, it's just a symbol! Also, until every child in this world goes to bed without hunger, I hardly think that $600,000 is best used on an architectural makeover. GET REAL, PEOPLE! There are still very real problems in this world other than concepts. What I mean to say is, the swastika never hurt anybody, the people calling the swastika their own, did.

But, this is what happens when we let stupid people breed!!!

That aside, this is a very cool collection of finds. Awesome.

The giant American head is not natural. The Americans built that in a similar way they built the Nazca plain images. It can be seen from space, like The Great Wall Of China. But, it is now considered classified by The Americans, like everything else they do from diet to arms to martial arts to science, which is why you don't hear it mentioned often, but it is on everything from American coinage to sports teams. I think it is the largest construction on Earth, if I'm not mistaken.
