Spectacular! We saw lots of those on my recent drive to Germany but none rotating at quite that speed.

ohmy!!! i gasped when i saw that! do you know how expensive those things are to make? LOL. but seriously, yeah, glad i wasnt standing under it, either. haha. near where i used to live in IL there's what i call a "windmill farm" full of what looks like a few hundred of those puppies. they're kind of eery all grouped together!
