You know...there is already a website deviated to this topic that has actual maps and historical context that probably would be more interesting to discuss instead of Google images.

70% of your posts so far have been links to Google Maps.  Literally.  I counted.  I think, if you want to avoid people getting mad at you for flooding this site with nothing but Google Maps links, you should ease off a little bit.
