Goggles: Google Maps flight simulator -- Today's Time Waster

Wow, I haven't had this much fun wasting time at my desk in ages.

Goggles is a flight simulator that draws its imagery from Google Maps. Want to fly a cartoon plane over Washington, New York, Hong Kong, or Disneyland? There's 21 total locations, including Mars, and the Moon.

You can control the plane with your keyboard's arrow keys. The A and Z buttons control the speed. And you hit space bar to fire. That's right, you can take out your house if you feel like it.

Although Goggles isn't affiliated in any way with Google, the flight sim is in beta, giving it that air of authenticity.
