    Hope they don't come around here!

    That really raises a lot of privacy and civil issues! Maybe since neither are "identifiable" it isn't a "problem", but are they really not "identifiable"?

    Click on the arrows and go up and down the street. You can almost see the story behind this.

    I wonder what the driver/cameraman did as they witnessed this.
    Preparing for the Zombie Apocalypse or Rapture....whichever comes first.

    That kid is small.
    Mark Twain:
    The government is merely a servant -- merely a temporary servant; it cannot be its prerogative to determine what is right and what is wrong, and decide who is a
    patriot and who isn't. Its function is to obey orders, not originate them.

    Here are lots of other funny scenes from streetview: Google Street View Gallery

    Regarding privacy: I think its Google's opinion that these are all public places. As long as they don't use the photos in commercials/advertisements, they should be (legally) ok.

    It's a squirt gun, according to the gallery website.
