Last christmas, I traded in my '92 Honda Accord (with 197,000 miles on it) for a sparkly new 2010 Honda Civic. Last week I finally noticed the manufacturer's plate on door jam long enough to read it, and saw that my car was built at Honda Manufacturing of Indiana, LLC. Curious about where my new pet was born, I found the address to be outside of Greenburg, Indiana – I also found that there are a lot of cities in Indiana that start with "Green" – and went over to Google maps to see if they had satellite imagery of the plant. They did not. So, I tried Bing maps (formerly Live maps; formerly Microsoft maps), but their satellite image was no better:

So, I switched over to Bing's Bird's Eye View aerial imagery, and there it was!

I would like to believe that the plant is so new, and the satellite imagery so old, that they just missed it, but the conspiracist side of me wonders if it will always look like farmland in the satellite photos.
