Here's something that I think you must all look at, it's called ZoomQuilt and its image that can be zoomed in and out to infinity without pixelazation! It's amazing!

That is so weird, good, but strange.

It is pretty amazing how they've done it.

That's pretty awesome. Weird and disturbing, too, but in a good way! :)

If you've only looked at it once I recommend doing it again; on my second time through I went much slower and noticed tons of details I missed the first time. (The weirdest had to be the doors marked 'fun' and salvation'...) LOL, I kept wanting to scroll off to the side to check out some of the tiny things off in the distance, too. In one place, in a field way of to the left I swear it looks like two people are fighting...

EDIT: That's odd, one of my sentences got cut off in the middle...

If you move it at fastest speed forward and stare at the middle for about 15 seconds as it's coming towards you, then stop the image, the middle looks as though it's folding back in!
