Now all they need is GoogleDrone. For those hard-to-see-into places like people's bedroom windows.

Now that it got cold the leaves fell off my bushes, I see my neighbors in the back, so they probably see me, I wonder if they like what they see (no way I'm closing curtains, I like the sun)

How Venice was mapped:



Unfortunately, in many cities pedestrian areas are still uncovered, as Google uses mostly cars for the mapping job.

In real life, electronic toll collection was first introduced in Bergen, Norway in 1986, and well into the 21th century many countries still struggle to implement it.

What is even more ridiculous is there's no such place as Gibraltar in the North East. There's a New York but no Gibraltar. However there's a pub called The Gibraltar Rock in Tynemouth. It certainly isn't worth driving all the way from Fatfield never mind Turkey to go there.

The other pubs in Tynemouth are worth the journey though.

Today is the coldest day in 2014 so far in the Netherlands. A good 5 degrees below the next coldest day back in January. It is also the first day with subzero temperatures at noon.

Oh, I don't know...Isn't it better than when we were regularly arguing about or or ?

(And I can't say I've really noticed a drop in maturity, but it never really had the potential to drop much....)

They showed the cameras on a Gondola, but they've actually used a "topo" boat for most of the city canals
It's a goods transport boat, the Venice equivalent of a truck

You can clearly see it here: https://www.google.it/maps/@45.44185...fOWTJw!2e0!3e5
