I live in a part of town where the utility wires are buried underground, and there's no alley road behind houses. So there aren't any poles for Google to use. Somehow I don't expect it to be one of the first fiberhoods.
A few years ago, Time Warner used a hammer mole thingy to make a hole underground down the backyards, pushing 2-inch conduit pipe behind it, only digging a small hole every other backyard or so to ensure it was going in the right direction. The most amusing part of this was that they used the bottom half of a coke can to cover the leading end of the pipe to keep dirt out. I'm going to guess that TW won't exactly be going out of their way to offer to let Google share their pipe.
I remember when cable TV started in the US, it was merely a way not to have to fuck around with an antenna and rotator and still get a crappy signal. The "cable-only" channels came later in the early '80s, but only the "movie" channels (HBO, Showtime, etc.) didn't have ads. Must be a difference in how cable TV started in the UK, I suppose.
I've been happily back to antenna for over a decade, especially since it went digital. (It works as long as you don't care to watch live sports, which are mostly on cable/sat-only channels now.)
I learned about it back in 1979 that you can make one out of stuff you can find at a junkyard, like a a cement mixer drum.

Unlike chemical waste, radioactive waste destroys itself over time.
And the longer it takes to do so, the less of a problem it was to begin with. If it takes a million years, it's not very radioactive. If it's really, really radioactive, it will only last for days, weeks, or months. The main problem is with stuff with a half-life of decades, and likes to take the place of other elements in your body, such as the calcium in your bones, where it can irradiate you for the rest of your life.
Look at Rush Limbaugh.
Getting hooked on prescription painkillers is kind of different from getting hooked on completely illegal drugs like FUCKING COCAINE AND HEROIN that you have no business having in the first place.
