It's interesting how in most eastern European countries, most cars have dash-cams - Live Leak would be nothing without all the Russian dash cam video. Also see this VG map: http://virtualglobetrotting.com/map/fatality-on-the-highway/ and my personal photo.

Nice. In the early days of cars there were many makers. Most bought chassis form other manufacturers and built the car over that.

So it's not actually Oprah's house as the title implies? She does not live there, she bought it for her father? So why do you use the troll "Oprah Winfrey's House" when she does not live there and has no intention of living there? Is every property that Winfrey own "Oprah Winfrey's House"?

jbottero pictureIncredible motorcycle accident
I saw a great video (on Live Leak) of a biker on one of these "crotch rockets" that got pissed off at a car driver, rode up beside the car, kicked the car door, and than lost it and skidded down the road.

In Russia (and Brazil), it's common for *most* cars to have dash cams (to prevent traffic accident fraud), so there is a lot of video out there.

The Daisy Cutter was developed to knock helocopter landing zones out of the jungle. The Egyptian may have other ideas for them.

It would have to be a smaller cargo plane. I believe they do have some c130s, but also some Soviet cargo planes... The US dropped the Daisy Cutters from a C130...

Since the Google images are newer than the Bing, and it's not in the Bing, it has to a fairly new facility. Note the array of strage tanks for mixing ingredients.

On 22 August, 2014, a man was fatally shot at a Wiz Khalifa concert held here. I can't even sneak a bottle of water or a small camera past security at a concert, but apparently guns are pretty easy at a rap show... On 24 August, Suge Knight was shot in a nightclub in LA, as well.

There is another thing I would like to point out about this image: From a technical standpoint, it shows a little about how the Street View camers are set up and how the "stitch" together the camera images to goive 360, up and down. In other words, in this Street View Error, all of the cameras are experienceing some connectivity issue, and you can see which camera is providing which image by how the error images intersect with eachother.
