The images on google maps, how old are they?

Tried a search, and apparently the date is on the image when using google earth. All I have here at work is an iPad, which hates my guts (and the feelings are mutual toward it also) and refuses to work how I want it to.

Is there a way of finding the date of the satellite image with a stupid iPad?

You can sometimes make out a very faint copyright ? date in the background on the photo, but that will only tell you the year not the exact date.

I know our place has just been updated to photo's taken in about September - previously, they would have been probably 5 years old, although I've seen somewhere that they are supposed to be no more than 3 years old?

Will try the computer when I get home tonight. The app doesn't show the date.

Dayborough pub, haven't been there for a couple of years.

We hear these stories of how these fruitloops people say they temporarily died, and were drawn towards a bright light/tunnel, and a sense of happiness/well being came over them

So how come we never hear any stories of how someone felt drawn towards anything flaming/hot   ???   >:D

I was declared clinically dead twice a few years ago and did not see any light. But then again I died so maybe my memory failed me.
I suppose the good news is I also don't remember any heat. I did not see any passed family members waiting or anything remotely like an afterlife.
I guess death is a bit of an anticlimax.

In these current days of high technology, why can't the idiot TV stations end a program on time?
Why do we have to put up with mindless tossers like the vet and fat sheila on "I'm a Mediocre Wannabe, Get Me Out Of Here" or that seriously low talent unfunny Hughsie twit on "Australia's Got Talent" jibbering away like brainless untrained chimps wasting time and blowing out recording time on following programs?

+ Eleventy 00000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000

Taped a late night movie just last week - been caught too times before with published times not being right so now allow -5 minutes at start & +30 minutes at end of programmed times. Watched it the next day & the recording cut off about 20 seconds into the end credits!  >:(

But's it's not just just late-night. The show scheduled for 5pm starts at 4.58, then finishes at 5.28, next one starts at 5.32 & finishes at 5.58 for the News to start at 6.00 - I think the evening National News is the one & only show, on any channel, including ABC, that actually runs to time  >:(

Gotta agree with you 10000000%
No Aussie comedies anymore, our sense of humor has become numb to the happy clappers Nancy Pancy view of the world.
Why ???
Because everyone thinks they are special & precious.
