If you happen to watch CNN a lot, you start to notice weird things about the backgrounds designs in their news stories. The blue background in particular.
This one has strange repeating coordinates that scroll upwards behind the dual screen and repeat what appears to be GPS coordinates.
Since I am a certified FEMA Tech Info Specialist (#NerdAlert), I took the liberty to plot them out. The coordinates (N: 40 26.21 x W: 78 58.34) plot out to Tuo Gelaya or Gaizilikezhen in Xinjiang Province in China.
Unknown why this is the static location they picked to be displayed, but that’s where it plots out to.
Why did I even bother to nerd this out? On initial glance, I thought it was close to the NE Ohio area (N41 x W-81), but upon closer inspection, I didn’t see the – sign in the West coordinates. Therefore, it is not in NE Ohio, it is in China.
Glad I got to the bottom of that mystery.
