Sept 2017 Part 3 - Antarctica: Weddell seals - POI - WOW


#21

After looking at this again, I think it looks like a wash basin for a baby alien. There’s even one built into the end. Must be for a female alien as it looks like a bow in her hair. :rofl:

Here’s another couple of letters found in the snow

Can’t remember where I got them from in Antarctica, they’ve been sat on my PC for a few days since the Harvey campaign went live…


#23

Anyone with the initials NV?
Or it might be ZL…

A semi-colon, for completeness of the alpha-numeric “collection”

:rofl: Now the server is nagging me to “Consider replying to several posts at once” :stuck_out_tongue_closed_eyes: because I’ve posted several times in a row…


#25

Did someone leave their sock or boot lying around here?

There’s a one-eyed face just beneath it as well…
And a kitty/panther face just to the left of that :smiley_cat::leopard:

Helen, I’ve noticed there were a few sections of the maps where it almost looked like pictographs and/or ancient writings. Other areas looked like letters of not just the English alphabet, both what appears to be many other letters/characters of other alphabets. Weird! If I find them again, I’m taking screenshots! :thinking:


#27

Here’s a puppy being held by a beast, a baby animal, and there is a blonde-haired girl and several other faces as well in this screenshot. (I marked them.)

Afterward, I realized there was a mom (mum), dad and infant in this screenshot. The blonde woman is the mom/mum.

Hey @Jim7! Thanks for continuing to work on Antarctica… and your creative eyes!


#29

I don’t think this is my “creative eyes” as @Mel_Nod says I have because this truly looks like a cat wearing a crown with a star in it. Could this be @cageycat - the queen of moderators - caught wearing her regal garb? There’s also a couple of animals to the left looking at her. Tag! You’re it, Cagey! :laughing:
(This is located almost halfway across the screen (not the map) when at Zoom -3 and the poly lined up with the bottom right of the instruction block on the left side.)

Just above, there’s a whole load of “faces” looking down on it.

Antarctic graffiti

Just above that there’s a whole load of “faces” looking down on it.

@Helen (taxing my cat brain) I seem to remember something on film (a commercial?) where that “face” would come at the end and “pop into” a metallic surface. I want to say it was a car repair or car parts commercial? And there was sound effects, like a blacksmith striking metal, at the end (dum dum!) @Jim… help. It was between 1970 and now… lolol

Well, I found the cat logo… but you gotta watch it getting drawn first LOLOL https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GlPZPbg6AAM So what commercial had a cat logo like that shows at the end, except popped out from behind metal? A panther?


#38

BTW, My great-uncle on my mother’s side had this unfortunate 1944 commercial career-- ick!


#39

So now I have to remember something that I saw somewhere within the past 44 years? Talk about taxing a brain (not a cat brain LOL)! But seriously, I do remember a commercial with the blacksmith’s hammer setting the seal, imprint, face or whatever it was. The sound is in my head, but as with people, I can’t seem to put a face on it! :thinking::rofl: Now this is something that is going to drive me :crazy_face: until I can remember what that commercial was about and for what company.
What it per chance an automobile commercial for the Mercury Cougar? :thinking:

Here’s a man peering around a tree. Looks like a pencil drawing.
