Bad Google Earth! Bad Google Earth!


Sometimes you just gotta smile. I read that the British SAS is just furious with Google for putting "street view" images of their "secret base" on the internet for all to see. This is just too funny.

If you have not fooled with Google Earth, you really ought to give it a whirl. It is an amazing program. In many places you can enjoy "street view" images which are nothing more than a massive compilation of 360 degree panoramic images taken by a car and a camera. That's right. The car drives down a road or a street taking panoramic pictures as it goes.

So.................if the SAS secret base is all that secret, how is it you can drive right by it and take pictures? Any chump with a cell phone could whiz by and, click, click, click.

In this day of cellphone cameras, anything is fair game.
