Thank you Telirium,

Amazing sight to see!  Half of America is completly lit up while the Western side is sporadic except its coastline.

So now we see whose wasting energy by leaving thier lights on at night!? happy.gif

I've seen this pic before. At first I thought it was a fake, cause I was thinking "but the whole world isn't at night at the same time"
but then I read Waspie_Dwarf's post xD

It is very cool though. I love how Japan is all lighted up lol

South Korea is completely lit up, while North Korea is in darkness. Pretty strange.

Yes, the poor economy of the North. It is a country which can not feed itself, is suffering starvation and simply does not have the resources that the South has. As a result there is far less street lighting and illuminated buildings.

Edited to add:

for another example of this look at South Africa. By African standards this is a rich and developed nation. It is fairly well illuminated when you compare it to it's neighbours.

This is WHY they have a nuclear programme.

Do you believe they only have a nuclear program for electric power and jobs?

So they kill their citizens of hunger, cold and thirst just to be able to kill more people? You know...... sometimes I can't believe I am living in a world like this....... angry.gif
