Google is one of the companies that's big into developing self-driving cars, and where does Google get most of its money? Advertising. Google is specifically pushing self-driving cars because a huge block of people's time is used driving where they would rather you surf the web and click on their ads.

Actually, I was wondering: what kind of risk do you have from your license plate being visible in an online photo? Obviously I see them blurred out all over the place, and even blurred out the plates on my pictures when I sold my last car, but I'm not really sure why it's so important. What can someone do with my license plate number?

You are usually so logical, but on this subject something seems to have happened to you. I'm genuinely disappointed. A building isn't a solid piece of metal. You can't push hard enough at the top and expect the whole thing to topple over like a felled tree. They are extremely strong in one direction (top-bottom), and relatively weak sideways. So no, it won't topple as it simply isn't strong enough.
