The new Google Maps Street View feature, which allows users to click on maps in major cities and get real images of the street, is causing a real ruckus on the web. In order to make the map work, Google had to send out a van with a bunch of 360-cameras to get street level images. Turns out, not all the images they picked up are the kind people want broadcast throughout the universe. Captured pictures of an old man jaywalking, a smiling man walking out of a strip club and two fellas walking into a cannabis club have made their mark in San Francisco, while two college gals sunbathing at Stanford University are making their mark on "oh there's a girl nearly naked" scene. And don't even get me started on the image (pictured at right) of what looks to be ET touching down in New York. Turns out, the view from the street might be more exciting than the view from the top afterall.
