Is it just me or do these look like corpses?

Very interesting
Re: Corpses KingConn 10/2/05 1:45 PM
it could be, but I don't think that those are corpses

I come from this part of the world (a couple of hundred miles to the north to be honest). Having looked at the 'corpses' I believe that it is rubbish that has been dumped in the open alley between the two houses, built arab stile with a secure wall round the outside, all rooms looking into the courtyard and some garden in the middle. If you look just to the north of the items it is easy to see that this area is being used as a dumping ground. Its most likely large coloured plastic bags that we can see. Sorry that my explanation is not as romantic as the original one.

If you turn it around, you can see that it is people praying over their dead...I believe that you are correct!

If it IS rubbish, I'm happy with that explanation.....I prefer looking at that rather then a bunch of corpses in a street

I'm thinking it's laundry day. Wet stains on the ground, people bent over, etc.

TOO TRUE. WHAT A SHAME SOMEONE HAD A MORBID FASCINATION WITH SOMETHING THAT THEY WOULD LIKE TO THINK IS A TRAGEDY. BUT I AGREE IT IS NOT CORPES.

Then I’ll try my best to make everything succeed

Tell me, what is my life without your love
Tell me, who am I without you, by my side

What I know, I can do
If I give my love now to everyone like you
But if it’s not love that you need
Then I’ll try my best to make ev’rything succeed

Tell me, what is my life without your love
Tell me, who am I without you, by my side
Tell me, what is my life without your love
Tell me, who am I without you, by my side

What I feel, I can’t say
But my love is there for you any time of day
But if it’s not love that you need
Then I’ll try my best to make everything succeed

Tell me, what is my life without your love

after using the measuring tool, these objects appear to be around 6 feet long. Coincidence? or somthing more sinister?
Re: Corpses Zenomorpff 11/22/09 2:28 PM
I honestly don't know of any society (in this, or any other area of the world) that under any normal circumstance would places corpses out in the open like this. It goes against all human tendencies and tradition (outside states of war or other devastation). Must be trash.

Notice that about 500' and 600' north of this placemark there are lines of clothes hung out to dry. I am leaning toward the laundry day theory. There does appear to be water splashed about. The figures are too vague to acurately measure, since they could be part person and part washtub or pile of clothing. As for rubbish - Much of Africa, Asia and the Middle East are densely littered with refuse of all kinds, in recent years especially with plastic bags and bottles. You can see drifts of trash all around the village here.

As far as I know, there has not been any sort of uprising or militia activity in Tanzania in recent years. Multiple bodies lying in the street would not seem likely.
