I thought this would be interesting. You can download Google Earth from here and then post a picture of your house!

My hometown, too, but anyway:

The first one is the house I spent my childhood and the second one is the house I live at the very moment I'm writing this.

P.S.: The mark in the first pic is way too big...

When I look at Google Earth I sort of feel sad because I know all the world is there and there is nothing new left to see.

I'm in Australia on the outskirts of Brisbane, which would explain the large spaces. But I'm not that rich.

Meh, my town isn't that big. Google (or that satellite) didn't seem very interested in it.

Wait, the second picture is in fact a pretty big town. It was even chosen as an Olympics candidate... before it was thrown out of competition in the first round...

I sort of found my house but the whole town is a fuzzy blob (I'm in Northern California). I was able to find my mom's house quite easily though :D.

Edit: Here's a picture of my work :p.

Well, you can clearly discriminate areas which have a higher resolution, because they appear as a rectangle coloured more brown than the rest.
