Everyone needs a work break, so during your next one check out this creepy 60-cm color QuickBird image collected over an abandoned theme park in Japan, Gulliver’s Kingdom, on April 6, 2002. (Image Courtesy: DigitalGlobe) Opened in 1997, Gulliver’s Kingdom was part of the failed jobs programs the Japanese government undertook in the 90s to help them climb out of their own Great Recession. By October 2001, the theme park shut its doors to the public for good. Before the park was demolished in 2007, QuickBird snapped this awesomely creepy image of the 45-meter supine Jonathan Swift statue at the center of the park.

Have a great rest of your workday!
