Take a google streetview stroll down Sampsonia Way, Pittsburg.

Story here.
From TFA:
Two American artists have made swooning for Google's all-seeing eye an art form, creating what they term the first artistic intervention in Google Street View.

After witnessing the immense online interest in quirky sightings on Google Maps, Robin Hewlett and Ben Kinsley approached Google with the idea of creating a series of staged tableaux along a street in Pittsburgh....

They include firemen rescuing a cat from a tree, a giant chicken sculpture, a woman dressed in a ham suit, a fake marathon, a rehearsing garage band, a mad scientist lab complete with "love laser", a high school marching band, a woman escaping from a window using a rope made from bed sheets and a medieval sword fight.

If you watch 'The History Of NASA' backwards, it's about a space agency that has no manned spaceflight capability, then does low-orbit flights, then lands on the Moon.

This is really cool, those who haven't checked it out really should.

Pay no attention to that man behind the curtain!
