3/31: Snow angel world record



Nice MSNBC WiP shot. The caption: Nearly 1,800 people flap their arms and legs, making angels in the snow at the North Dakota Capitol in Bismarck on March 23. The event, sponsored by the State Historical Society of North Dakota, was an attempt to get into the Guinness Book of World Records for making the most snow angels at any one time.

That just looks funny.

Why are there people standing? Those two in the middle, so its not 1800, but merely 1798. So much for the world record.

Warch, wasn't there some world record of similar proportions just broken in your state? I remember seeing it on the news last week, but don't remember what it was.

I dunno...But its snowing here today and I will grab my goretex and answer the call if we decide to take on our neighbors to the west and the world. .

Actually the image reminds me of the mass nude Aussie photographer's work...same working process.

...if the "mass nude Aussie photographer" you are referring to is Spencer Tunick, then he is in fact American. Born in Middletown, NY, 1967.....

Yes, but he photographed mass nude Aussies, did he not?

It's a shame, Mags, that you have to refer to their weight. That had nothing to do with it.

(Good first post And, welcome)

WHAP!

She refered to their MASS not weight - they was no gravity component mentioned - weight varies, mass does not
