I would assume that google used the same "x pixels per foot" idea that you did. I used the google earth tool and got 305.7 feet, which is only a little more than an inch more than you had.

On Google Earth's measuring tool, you can set the length measurements to feet, and just check it that way. You could also see how many meters or smoots it is.

I lived in Sleeper for a semester, those three dorms are pretty terrible inside. I can see how this tower will mess up Rich's views, but shouldn't it have no effect at all on Claflin's views? I...

The reason everyone is talking about cars is that you made a car related analogy to explain your point. Deconstructing the analogy will not really kill your point, but you put forth a very extreme...

I live in Boston without a car and I do just fine. In fact, driving in Boston is so terrible I'm glad I don't have a car. I wasn't under the impression that the subsidized apartments were the...

I think the machinery on top is going to be covered by flowers, but your point is quite accurate. A very small change can take it from "well, I guess that's alright" to "I can't wait til that's...

1260 Boylston isn't going anywhere, it was completely redone last year to be a space for the Boston Conservatory. The guys in suits were probably lawyers. There's a recording studio in the building...

Machine is a bar on Boylston, close to the Fens. It's a gay bar, but still a bar. Also, one thing that I think might discourage development is the Fens, it's not a very nice place at night. I walk...

To further beat a dead horse, I'm in Louisville for the summer and we had all the shots of Boston here. It seemed odd at the time that they picked one city from the US to show and then showed the...

I can't imagine that BU is in a money crunch, with the amount of money they make people to pay to live in some of their dorms. They make you spend a ridiculous amount of money to live in places where...
