Incidentally, St. Louis is about 300 miles from Chicago, so the shaft would be 40 miles short.

It depends on how large the giant ring is. 20 mile radius would put it adjacent. Also, "outside" Chicago is flexible.
More importantly, Black Hat is such a jerk. He builds a freaking space elevator but only uses it for a particularly silly kind of evil. - Frankie (talk) 14:26, 26 July 2013 (UTC)

By the way, what is Black Hat sitting at? It looks like there is open laptop on desk, but he uses separate keyboard in a special shelf... --JakubNarebski (talk) 15:06, 26 July 2013 (UTC)

It's entirely possible that he has exactly that. My mother uses an ergonomic keyboard instead of the crappy, built-in one on the laptop. Her desk has a keyboard shelf, so that's where the ergonomic one goes. 18:05, 26 July 2013 (UTC)
I don't believe in ergonomic keyboards, but look at what laptops have instead of keyboard. I'm usually using standard keyboard instead of built-in one and I don't believe I'm alone. Also note that as a hacker, Black Hat probably needs lots of special symbols, which may be missing or on nonstandard positions on laptop keyboard (he is hacker, isn't he?). -- Hkmaly (talk) 11:51, 27 July 2013 (UTC)
Regardless of whether or not you believe in them, ergonomic keyboards exist. 14:43, 27 July 2013 (UTC)

Real giant ring observed over Chicago today.

A smoke ring from an exploded transformer. I honestly think this could have inspired the comic. on reddit on the news 11:31, 26 July 2013 (UTC)

Funny, I immediately flashed on the world's largest electromagnet, delivered today to the Fermilab facility in Batavia IL, which is just outside Chicago: Gardnertoo (talk) 20:15, 26 July 2013 (UTC)
