How did that get there?

Recommended Posts

It's a funny thng how you could look at something a thousand times, then one day, something catches your eye. I was taking a walk around today and saw this way up on the unisphere on the equator over Africa.

A Sticker on the equator??!! How the heck did they get THAT up there? It's not cool to deface the unisphere but I can't help but be impressed by the climbing skills and overall derring-do of the mystery sticker guy. How long was it there for? I looked back on some older photos I have and it just might have been there since 10/06/2009!

Has anyone ever noticed this sticker there before?

You mean over South America. It's in my photos from 9/19/2009. Can't recall if we noticed it then or if it was posted somewhere else here.

Edit - it was not there on 10/22/2005

YIKES! Looks like I've failed geography! :blink:

I guess I didn't phrase it right but I was curious if anyone else noticed it or posted anything about it. I've taken many photos of the unisphere over the years but I have very few from that side of it.

There was a pair of shoes hanging up there for a long time... remember that?

There's been all sorts of stuff that accidently got wind blown up there or intentionally tossed up there but what impressed me about this was that someone actually had to climb up the inside of the unisphere, slap the sticker on it, then climb back down without killing himself in the process.

As to how it got there, it's not so hard if you have a friend to take the unisphere off its pedestal
