the successful removal of my street from google earth and google streetview after a short battle with the creeps at google.

My house, The aircraft bone yards in Arizona (?) The off site nuke storage bunkers outside what used to be Carswell AFB. Most any large city Most any high detail unpopulated area Disney world Most any airport Anywhere in Italy London NY,NY The little (not anymore) farm town I spent some of my youth in Coral Island, Blackpool Central pier South pier West pier Just about anyplace you look. I get mesmerized by all of the detail available on GE.

Being able to look over my own back fence......., and see the rust spots on my car. :(
I'm a big fan of environmental damage, places like abandoned nuclear power plants, strip mining sites, chat piles, old neighborhoods abandoned due to POPs in the soil, that sort of thing.

Just go to Youtube and type in "Google Earth secrets" or something like that, and some pretty cool videos will come up. My favorite is this weird face in the dunes of Africa.
