Google has understandably run into privacy issues from a whole host of people and organizations and even entire towns. The most interesting of these are from people doing things they didn’t want to be seen doing (people entering and exiting adult bookstores, theft attempts, etc.). On the other hand it can be really useful when trying to find directions somewhere and when you can zoom around the streets of Rome, is undeniably cool.
So I went and found all the place I remember living in my life and, with the help of a screen capture program, I reproduce them here (I was very surprised to have found out that Google actually drove through Comstock):
Our first house in Comstock was a trailer that has long since been moved away but there is still the great mulberry tree in the yard where we had an awesome treehouse and the round concrete planter that we used as a sandbox.
This is our second house in Comstock. On a side note: it is weird that the one day they decide to drive through this small west Texas town it was overcast.
Our house outside of Odessa.
My dorm my first year of college.
My first apartment. Good times battling the Mormons with my atheist roomates.
The sad little rent house Roger and I moved into after the apartment.
