Seriously, people talk about street view as if it gave more than a single static image... They act like it would help potential thieves learn when you are home or something... or somehow help them case your house. How much information can be gleaned from a few blurry photos of your house? The fact that it exist, and has door? Maybe a car in the driveway (depending on when the googlecar drove by?)

Vonnegut from "God Bless You, Mr. Rosewater,"
"Hello, babies. Welcome to Earth. It's hot in the summer and cold in the winter. It's round and wet and crowded. At the outside, babies, you've got about a hundred years here. There's only one rule that I know of, babies - 'God damn it, you've got to be kind.' "

my feeble attempt at an epitaph

"Goodbye, Mr. Vonnegut. God bless you, Mr. Vonnegut.
You told us about ice, you told us about fire. You made us laugh and taught us to think. Your time here was too short. But you gave us a lot more than one rule, you gave us someone to root for."

I'm sorry its no Vonnegut...
