    I believe they are targets for bombing practice.
    While you're waiting, read the free novel we sent you. It's a Spanish story about a guy named 'Manual.'

    Also, close to Nazca there is a town called Paracas that does boat trips to surrounding islands to see penguins, seals etc. As you travel out on the boat and look back to shore there is a massive 'candelabra' carved into the cliff. It's only visible from the water and was used by smugglers IIRC.

    Happy holidays.

    Either :

    • aliens from the planet Zarg, who having travelled 50,000 light years and expending Zargoid GDP for a generation using technology incomprehensible to us to do so, apart from the triangle making machine, made some triangles in a remote area where the farmer wouldn't chase them off and did a bit of the usual anal probing/abducting before returning home fully satiated
    • adolescents doing what adolescents do

    They were built and used for flight training, during WW2. There's loads of them about.

    A mile wide target would probably have been fairly hard to hit from 50,000 feet (the service ceiling of a B52B) in the days before precision guided bombs.

    There's an enormous (approx 12 mile) oval about 10 miles west, Seahaven interstate?
    Science isn't about why, it's about why not. You ask: why is so much of our science dangerous? I say: why not marry safe science if you love it so much. In fact, why not invent a special safety door that won't hit you in the butt on the way out, because you are fired. - Cave Johnson

    Yep, it's obviously a signal made by the illuminati to communicate plans for wolrd domination. They haven't got e-mail you see.
