    1. I thought that said anal.

      That is also disturbing.

    2. When were these taken? I looked on google maps and it looks back to normal. I don’t know how old the current google image is.





    4. Did a google search.

      Seems the Russians needed to be able to grow food, so they diverted the two rivers that feed this lake.

      Whats is more important to you? Food? or having a big salt water lake?

      Of course they were kind of dumb about it.

      “The construction of irrigation canals began on a large scale in the 1940s. Many of the canals were poorly built, allowing water to leak or evaporate. From the Qaraqum Canal, the largest in Central Asia, perhaps 30 to 75% of the water went to waste. Today only 12% of Uzbekistan’s irrigation canal length is waterproofed.:

    5. AHhh shrinkage. The arch enemy of men after swimming as well as lakes. Such a shame.
