    Fun things to do when you're bored

    I suppose fun is a little optomistic, but has anyone ever tried following your commute/weekend ride using the google satallite images? Kinda fun to see what you don't notice from the ground. Also, looking at manhattan up close makes for some really strange perspective effects.
