This animation shows exactly why I think the whole spherical aspect of the “Lenz Project” is interesting. Albeit very simple, I am still amazed at how beautiful our earth is. Oh yeah, if you ever go to the Namib desert watch out for diamonds in the sand! BTW, deBeers sucks— artificially inflated blood diamonds really show the one you love that you paid too much for that bling! Watch this video for more info.
Next image will be the same graphic as in the animation, but just a hell of a lot larger (10,000 by 7,500 pixels) and should be on-line in about 6 hours.
i tried to watch the sierra leone diamond video but apparently gnn doesn’t like my webbrowser.
i never got the entire fascination with diamonds. they’re ugly. sure, they’re the hardest surface known to man… but what does that mean? just another rock on this earth, that’s all.
perhaps we should start an “engagement” tree fad. plant trees. get engaged. its symbolic. you can literally watch your love grow!
