My house!

Even though I’m super stressed out due to all this crap I need to do, but don’t have time to do, I felt like downloading Google Earth today. You know, just for shits and giggles and to see if I could actually see into my bedroom window, as some people have claimed. I remember a story on the news about a lady who could see her cat sitting in the window, and I thought, wow, I should totally check myself out! Well, my little area of Small Town, USA turned out to be a green blob, so I tried some Philadelphia addresses, thinking the big city might provide me with some stalkertastic views of my best friend. Nope. All in all, I found Google Earth to be pretty weak and unexciting. Totally did not live up to the hype. On the plus side, though, it’s good to know that people aren’t Google Earthing into my bedroom windows after all. I did find this pretty amusing, though:

Can someone use Google Earth for stalking or other malignant intent?

We understand your concern and can assure you that Google Earth contains only information that is readily available from both commercial and public sources. For example, this same information is available to anyone who flies over or drives by a piece of property.

I mean, I don’t know about you, but I’m constantly flying over dudes’ houses to check up on what they’re up to. So what, does that make me a stalker? Pssh, well, no thanks to Google Earth, I’m STILL going to have to stalk the old fashioned way – via airplane.

    Rad! Thanks for clearing that up! I wasn’t sure if it was google earth or not but I couldn’t find anything better. I will have to test this again, now.
