To make up for the fact that I haven’t had much worth writing about the last couple of days (though I think later I might just write about not having anything to write about), I give you something cool to go look at and amuse yourself: Google Sightseeing.
I’m a tremendous fan of Google Maps. I feel like a nerd for saying so, but it’s true. And it’s absoultely amazing what you can see with the satellite views they have on their now…seeing my house from space was a pretty damn cool thing. Google Sightseeing finds lots of those pretty damn cool things and points them out to you, the Adoring Google Maps Consumer. An example from today (which will really only be of much interest for those of you familiar with Boston): the enormous rainbow-colored gas tank along I-93.
(And here’s a little bonus especially for our friends in the Tampa area.)
UPDATE (11:21 p.m.): In the process of looking for the satellite map of the airplane graveyard (see my response to Saundra’s comment below), I found a page full of other bitchin’ places to look at through Google Maps. (Beware! Exactly the kind of thing that could suck up hours of your time without your even realizing the hours had been sucked.)
