Here is an interesting view of Barcelona, Spain with a combination of tourist apartments and famous tourist sites. The green dots are sites and the little house icon are maps. The old center maze of streets is interesting.

Here's another Google Maps app that shows the points of sunrise and sunset (i.e. the terminator between sunlight(day) and shadow(night)) crossing the earth's surface in real time.

Zoom in close enough, and you actually get to see the sunrise move slowly across the landscape, bringing a new day to a different part of the earth.

I'd say something about it having educational value, but who wants to take all the fun out of it? :-)

A few years ago, it was difficult to find synthetic motor oils, and equally difficult to find someone who admitted to using them. Nowadays, however, you can find synthetic motor oils on the shelves of Wal-Mart, and other retailers, and the number of people turning to synthetic motor oils, particularly in light of the recent events affecting fuel prices, has risen greatly.

So why do people use synthetic motor oils rather than sticking with the old petroleum based stand-bys which are admittedly cheaper?

1. Let's start with the cost per quart issue. Synthetic motor oils ARE more expensive at purchase. However, these oils last longer, requiring fewer oil changes. As a synthetic motor oil outlasts several changes of petroleum based lubricants, the ultimate out-of-pocket cost of the lubricant is less. This cost savings becomes even greater if you have someone else change your oil for you rather than doing it yourself!
