    Beezel are you or have you ever been a card-carrying member of the Communist Party?

    We believe Burns still has the bill hidden somewhere in his house, but all we've ascertained from satellite photos is that it's not on the roof.

    In the director's cut of Zero Dark Thirty, Jessica Chastain find Bin Laden only using Google Maps. It's 10 minutes long.

    But what if I *want* people to see my windowless van with "FREE CANDY" spraypainted on to the side of it? They're not taking photos of my basement, or the basket and lotion, so why should I worry?

    Will Google Street View ever take updated pictures sometime? Because the picture of my house is kind of outdated, what with the fact that the woods and surrounding area has been cleared of brush and excessive trees, and my brother's old car is in the driveway.

    The picture of my house shows two hookers that have been dead and buried in my backyard for years.

    They take them every couple of years depending upon the area and the "WTF?!" value they can get from what footage they gather. For example: I put this in the trash by my home on Halloween just after all of the trick or treaters had gone home for the evening. Google was there the very next day to take a photo.

    In this next shot, you can see that George Zimmerman has picked up on the concept by training his young children in self defense outside where it can be seen. Google got wind of this and promptly sent a car to photograph it.

    I should also add that it isn't just the well known who are doing this, in fact, our own Rogue_Ten was recently seen marking his territory at a thrift store. Sure enough, Google was there.

    In short, the ordinary stuff won't cut it, you need to go out of your way to do something completely demented and screwy to get Google to photograph your humble abode.
