    Sure is cool. Much better than the crop circles we have but I am guessing that they plant the rice so have some idea about the shape its going to turn out. I have been in one or two crop circles and you can see nothing of the pattern. It must take tremendous faith in the technique to do it.

    Like this one. Its huge and has ASCII code on the disk and everything... crazy.

    What I find interesting is that some of the fields are done so when you're standing in the correct spot, it's in perspective, rather than from straight above. that's crazytalk

    I think they probably use the same tech as they do in sporting events where you see logos on the pitch painted on in perspective so it looks 'right' from one particular camera.
