This link will make you *crack* up

This is a pretty good follow-up to the cartoon Ben just posted. It's amazing what people can do with Google Earth now-a-days. I think it's hilarious that they found a pot farm simply using Google Earth... these Feds have too much free time lol. The farm was 2 acres! Isn't that crazy? Read ahead for the article. There are two links at the bottom of this post if you want to read more.

If something is located on Planet Earth these days, there's a good chance that someone is looking at it. With satellites monitoring everything and Google Earth putting it all up online, it's getting harder and harder to hide your nuclear weapons cache and keep your naked sunbathing habits private. It's certainly getting harder to grow your greens out in the open.

Swiss police scored a major bust the other day when they accidentally stumbled onto a two-acre cannabis plantation while looking at Google Earth maps. The pot was hidden inside of a cornfield, but cops were able to spot the herb between the stalks.

''It was an interesting chance discovery,'' said a cop involved in the raid. The bust was part of a bigger investigation that eventually led to 16 arrests and the seizure of 1.2 tons of bud.
