I am thinking the white blotches in the sky are actually bird craps and pieces of chewing gum that landed on the dome the camera is in....

Why some of them are perfectly round, I have absolutely no idea, because it really looks like big round paper circles.

Sweet swordy fightingness . Nice costumesz
And foam paddle sword of truth. Ftw...yep.....anyway....why was this posted? I mean I guess it would be pretty cool if it they were just beating each other to death out of the blue just for fun. Instead of some projecty art thingy bobber. Which just makes this a picture of two guys dressed in armor, and if that is the case there is alot better pictures/videos on the interwebs for sword fighting and/or larping and the like.

Trippy timing errors-
Go left on Federal street,
Keep going till you see a bus (It will suddenly be raining, then won`t be raining, and the nerds will dissapear), go a little further until you see a kid with some groceries.
Click the arrow once.
It`s a clown with a jack-in-the-box,
Arrow again
It`s Jack the Ripper

Peveo, they use a special camera mounted on the top of the car, which I believe takes a bunch of pictures at the same time, and the software tries to put them together.

Explains the crosswalk errors, headless people, not the UFO`s

peveo, its a whole bunch of cameras surrounding a central core, they all just take a consecutive picture and frame it together.

I think it`s just a series of different shots put together. That`s why when you look up, there seems to be "UFO`s". And you can see where the two pictures blend. I think the stuff on top is just leaves and water drops on top of the vehicle or something.

Well, there`s an installation art museum on that street (Google "The Mattress Factory"), so maybe they were doing something. I know somewhere else in Pittsburgh, they staged a fake parade for the google street view camera as an art project.

Go down Sampsonia to the corner of Arch street. Next to the store on the corner, there`s a kid just standing there in a ham costume, looking like they`re straight out of the movie "To Kill a Mockingbird".

Yea, that`s not LARP.

"Medieval Combat Club, is a medieval re-enactment organization that emphasizes free-style combat in a safe and fun manner. According to the club`s website they spar using padded weapons, research medieval history and craft armor and clothing of the period."

STILL not my cup of tea, but sounds a hell of a lot cooler to me than sitting around listening to solider boy with your pants sagged around your ankles, lol.
