Google Earth Freakout


(Bondi Beach near Sydney, Australia -- CLICK FOR A LARGER PIC)

Has anyone else been freaked out by the level of detail in Google Earth? Our part of the world is not very detailed yet but Australia is. I snapped this pic after finding a random beach near Sydney. You can make out individual people pretty well. See the 4 guys playing ping pong in the waist-high lagoon? I bet if you browsed the coastal areas you could eventually see a shark in the water.

Our corner of the world is not so detailed. We're several zoom-in layers behind. Somehow Newton, and probably west Wichita are one layer closer in than east Wichita which is ahead of Kansas City.

please do everyone surfing the internet a favor. stop while you are ahead and just quit putting your retarded thoughts on the web. just because you can have a blog does not mean you should. stick to what you know best, which by the way happens to not be posting your random stupid thoughts.
p.s. you have now gained my attention, keep it up and ill be sure to focus on you.
