The geek shall inherit the Google Earth!

Google Earth can be great fun to fly around in. Although some people may not have the best PC or internet connection to enjoy it fully. But if you find it too much of a hog on your system, don't forget you can have a good look around with Google maps.
Here are a few sites using Google maps/Google Earth for stuff a little bit more interesting than getting directions.
has a large selection of sights to see such as a "downed aircraft from 1981" and "The world's largest cow". I like the layout of this one. It's simple, easy to use and very clear. Also they invite you to submit any cool sights you've come across on Google Earth for inclusion on the site.

is much the same as Google Sightseeing and just as nice. It also has a large selection of weird and wonderful sights to see from possible UFO sightings to odd map errors. These guys also invite you to submit what you've found on your own Google Earth travels.

This site has a lot of cool Google Earth stuff on it. Clicking on the link will take you to their 'Strange Map Quirks' section which is much the same as the other two sites I have mentioned here. But, if you click on their logo it will take you to their main page where you can find other cool stuff like their Downloads section with weird and wonderful stuff to download and add to your copy of Google Earth.
