My friend started building his cafe in Bad Staffelstein 5 years ago. In google sat pics, it's foundation is under construction.

Also, in the google sat pics, I'm not a virgin. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/shady.gif

my neighborhood is no more than 4 months old,

How do i know this? When the neighbors got a new white pathfinder, I looked about 3 or 4 months after they got it, I could see it parked in the street with their other vehicles.

Not that old at all.

Some are very old: Lake Eppalock in my region is down to 3% capacity, but in the photos it's nearly full. That's circa 1999. I know, you're thinking "How can a lake holding several million megalitres be drained from flooding to 3% in just seven years?" it's mismanagement.

That and the nearby mine is barely a scrape, whereas it's now about 100ft deep, and the clay mine nearby has massive stockpiles, whereas they're now quite small. So yeah, depends on region, but some areas are very old.

Here in Cádiz the thing is about 7 years old... I know because they were making a HUGE city reformation -burying the railroad which divided the city in two, making it subterranean, while making a big avenue over it... many new flat blocks, a massive commercial center, new green areas, etc. In the pics, the works had just started.

The copyright date has little to do with the date the photo was taken. Some of the stuff I've looked at had 2005/6 copyright dates but was at least 5 years old.

I haven't owned the white Grand AM parked in my driveway for at least two years. It's still in the satelite photo...

North Toronto area.

Damn right they do! I'm in the future right now. Over here it's 1:51 the next day. A bleak and horrible future.

The pictures over my area are over 10 yrs old.
1 house I lived in is over 10 yrs old, on Google, its a vacant lot....middle of a cornfield actually.

Googles Technology is at least 10 yrs behind the military, maybe more.
My boss was NRO (National Reoconisance Org)
He says 10 yrs ago they could tell wheather you dyed your hair because they could see the color change in your roots of the hair on your head.


They can see what your doing IN your house if they so desire, now with the different spectrums available to them there really is no place to hide.

Big Brother is looking thru your roof.


Osama....
I'm looking at you.

from what I hear, the zoomed in pictures are actually aerial photos, not satellite images.
