Autumn is approaching in this part of the world, and as the
corn all gets picked its time to make a corn maze. The
personalized fingerprint corn maze can be made for you by
our team of expert maze makers. You will have a
fingerprint taken by our official fingerprint takers and then
be enlarged and plotted out on the cornfield of your
choice. If you own a cornfield that would be great.
This will be an exact replica of your fingerprint And there
will be aerial shots for you to see it from above. If you
dont have the money to have your own personalized
fingerprint, you can just have any old fingerprint that can
be acquired from your police station. this will reduce your
(I posted a link I found while searching, but this is not a
corn maze or anyones actual fingerprint. Nonetheless it
exist and is somewhat similar in nature but not what I call

||I once ran a competition with the prize being to
"win a tattoo of Charlie Manson's Thumb Print on
your head". Cornfield finger pint - approved [+]
||I love this. But with my luck, some random police helicopter
will fly over and think "hmm, maybe I'll just run this print and
see what comes up".
||And then bam, I'm arrested by 10 big guys with guns and taken
to county jail for not feeding a parking meter 20 years ago.
||No, for real, I love this.
||60-65% of fingerprints are loop patterns. I suspect that it might be quite easy to enter and leave the maze by just following one loop. But understanding fingerprints apparently takes so much training that it would be helpful to have a cornfield sized version to study, look for evidence of schizophrenia, etc.
||"What are you looking for in this maze?"
"Evidence of schizophrenia"
||Im not schizophrenic, Im just loopy.
||Is this supposed to be planted in the finger print pattern, or
plotted onto a standard cornfield? Because the former runs
into growth pattern problems, and the latter has a pixel size
~1.5 feet, preventing an exact replica.
||well I dont know about the pixels
halfbaked notion I had.
||Is that a problem? Let's say the smallest notable feature on a
fingerprint is 1/100th of an inch, and that "pixel" will be at
minimum 18" across in the corn maze. So the maze has to be
at least 1800 times bigger than a fingerprint, maybe 150 feet
across. Seems about right to me.
||gee, I really never think of that technical stuff
when I just have a half baked notion. Thanks for
doing the math.
||I promise I wont get you arrested! [bliss]
||Yes sir, mr extremely wealthy businessman, we
definitely need a copy of your fingerprints to
create your personalised fingerprint corn maze.
Definitely not to gain nefarious access to your
biometrically secured bank account/safety
Perhaps we could also
interest you in our today-only specials:
Mothers maiden name mural
First pets name memorial perhaps?
||No, you may NOT have a copy of my evil chuckle
- its part of the pass phrase I use in our sound
activated security systems.
||//leave the maze by just following one loop//
||There could be blocking hedges similar to the ground planting and gaps formed by corn arches. This could allow really complex mazes but still with that swirly ident.
