This is cool. I'm pretty sure Clarence Thomas is taking a nap. Zoom in and check him out.

Nah, he's just wondering who put the pubic hair on his can of Coke . . . .

He's probably looking down in the cold to see if his hands are still attached. The warmest place around politicians is usually right in front of them.

That is an amazing picture with excellent clarity on the zoom in.

When I was looking for the fullscreen link, I found this Yosemite gigapixel photo (click on View In Zoomify at the bottom). Zoom in to the top of the face of Half Dome. No, zoom in more. Even more. See those little dots? Zoom all the way in. Hikers! There's a few climbers on the back side, too.
