The 45th parallel of latitude is an imaginary line that circles the globe halfway between the equator and the North Pole. This same line passes through Minneapolis-St. Paul, Ottawa, Bordeaux, Venice, Belgrade, and the northern tip of the Japanese islands. In Yellowstone, it’s roughly aligned with the Montana-Wyoming border. [Via]
No, this image wasn’t taken in the 70’s. It just looks like a typical travel pic to me. Because I didn’t have my stormtroopers to take pictures of, I had to throw my shoe in there. I’m getting too old for that cuz I think I almost pulled something taking that picture. For some reason, I like to take random pictures of my shoes.
