That will be interesting, for sure. I lived in Memphis, Tn for 2 years. While I was there I would give virtual tours with Google maps to my friends and family so they could see where I lived and semi-tour the sites. Pretty sweet.

Does anyone like to entertain conspiracy theories? I find they are better than fiction, because you don't really know if they are fiction or not... and what may seem like fiction, may actually be close to the truth. And, even if a theory is only a theory, it can give someone ideas and one day become a reality. So, yeah, much better than fiction any day.

Anywho, there is a report that Google was started with funding from the CIA and a former CIA officer, last name Steele (sp?), said it's a major CIA Big Brother operation and they spy on everyone. So, now, we are helping Big Brother amass information voluntarily... pretty funny.

LOL, dude, get ahold of yourself. Privacy is kind of IMPORTANT!

I think the human race will be the embarrassment of the whole solar system if, after numerous warnings from gifted authors and insiders such as George Orwell and Aldus Huxley, we just saunter on into a Big Brother-style dictatorship w/o even noticing it.

But, I understand your exacerbation. You feel helpless, impotent. That's by design. You are living in a scientific dictatorship and have been brainwashed since you were old enough to discover the magic picture box that tells you what to think, feel and desire. You are a slave... a debt slave. Just watch your football and soap operas and pay your taxes and keep your mouth shut. Unless you are an expert in world affairs, then you are unqualified to have an opinion on such matters. Just parrot what the magic picture box says... fall in line and keep taking your Blue pill. This is all for your own safety and the safety of others. Trust Big Brother. He is looking out for you. And report any disruptors to your nearest InfraGaurd office.
