If you like fiction, I think you'll enjoy "Trust Your Eyes" by Linwood Barclay. Thomas Kilbride is a schizophrenic who spends his days and nights on a Web site called Whirl360. He travels the world without ever leaving his bedroom and memorizes the details of every street in every city. Then one day, he sees an image that looks like a woman being murdered in a window in New York City. Thomas’s brother, Ray, knows Thomas’s paranoia all too well.

Ou812: Sounds like a pretty interesting book. I don't know about the schizophrenic or paranoia part (;-}) but the Thomas Kilbride character seems pretty close to home. I do a lot of traveling the world from Google Earth and found that game, GeoGuessr, a lot of fun. I certainly don't memorize the details of every street in every city...that's pretty far fetched....for me anyway. And not all of those Google Earth satellite photos are in the current year..some are a couple of years old. Same with the Google Street views. I have seen some interesting Google Earth sites, however. I know a lot of people search Google Earth for interesting artifacts. Sometimes it's a plane caught in flight...or a woman sun bathing or some occult symbol.

Impeachment: The Difference Between Nixon & Trump

Thom plus logo There is a very simple reason why some Republicans participated in the impeachment proceedings against Richard Nixon, but none have so far broken ranks against Trump. That reason is the US Supreme Court.
