I think we have a winner

Notice the reservoir right next it to it glowing bright blue?

This is probably a giant copper mining and refinery facility. See as how much electronics come from China they probably have to go all out like this to make enough. The whole region is dedicated to it...man, I wish we could have that level of industry all over the world.

Interesting that you would pick that specific refinery out. I grew up like 3 miles from that exact location, and some of my family worked there for a very long time.

This conspiracy just got deeper.tongue.gif

It's China.... Would not surprise me in the least if it was concrete, lol. Gotta keep the prisoners busy. Those work camps are only getting bigger you know, and they can't afford computers for all of them to farm WoW Gold.
