Fiddling with satilite imagery is an interesting way to watch a lot of time disapear from you. The labs at google are probably making good use of their KEYHOLE purchase with an online imaging system- it's still in BETA, but you can view a lot of areas from the skies in a nice interface. What's almost as interesting as what you can see is what you CAN'T see. Politically sensitive areas are blurred (like the white house) or even whited right out, like this section of "Groom Lake" known to many as "Area 51". I'm sure censoring this will do nothing to quiet the tinfoil hat crowd!
