What's up ladies and gentlemen,
I think I found some new stuff here:
In the text on the side bar there are, what look like, coordinates.
The first one I found I looked up on mapquest was his "captive" location:
184.108.40.206 / 12.0 N.
This data set could be interpreted a couple different ways: degrees, Minutes, and seconds, or in straight latitude and longitude.
The former, I assume, having similar conventions as IP addresses, would most likely be split up as such: Lat 39.8.84 / Lon 30.12.0 giving us THIS location near Sevdigiri in Turkey. The latter would assume truncated decimal points in the first given value giving us: Lat 39.88430 / Lon 12.0 which is off-coast. That location is dead in the middle of the Tyrrhenian Sea. Now, either coordinates are somewhat plausible locations for a POW to be held (the Tyrrhenian Sea being the least). I know that there is oil in that sea, so it's possible for the character to be held in the bowels of an ill used oil rig. However, the most likely scenario that I have come up with is this:
Most environmentalists project the world to run out of, or come exceedingly close to, in around 2035. [MSN] [LifeAfterTheCrash] Let's say that something accelerates this process. That by some act of God, or will of Man, there is no more fossil fuel left to consume. Who would the world blame for this? For me, I'd blame the capital users of the product. The US being one of the largest consumers of fossil fuels. The Viral ad states that there was an offensive in Atlanta that the character helped quell (Lat 33.756154 / Lon -84.388433) before he was recommended for a promotion. Promoted to what, I'm not able to guess.
The record also states that there was a cross-com found in the Ile De France, that may or may not belong to him, that is 54% intact and the EMP disabled.
Let's go back to the Atlanta Defense Service Medal. The exact coordinates are in a city park, Woodruff Park specifically, on the corner of Broad St. and Lucky St. That sounds like a ****ty place to mount an offensive for a sleeper cell, until you take a look at what's down the road:
<LI>CNN Headquarters and Broadcast facility
<LI>Philips Arena (home of the Thrashers, Force, and the Hawks)
<LI>Atlanta Journal Constitution (newspaper subscribed to nation wide)
<LI>The Westin Peachtree Plaza Hotel (political guests galore)[/list]
All of those positions are within five miles of the primary objective.
Sounds like that would be one hell of a mission to "re-live."
Anyway, I just thought I'd share a little bit of what I've found.
New Idea for a name: Ghost Rainbow Advanced Cell
