I have questions.
 
1. I saw on wikipedia that they blur out the Royal Stables in The Hague, Netherlands, but every time I try to go there it doesn't do anything. I can go to the Hague, obviously, but not the Royal Stables.
 
2. Why is the Kaaba in Mecca all white? (Go there and you'll see what I mean)
 
3. Are there any images of a sports game in progress? I've been to Fenway Park and Yankee stadium but all have been empty with the exception of Fenway who had a couple groundskeepers.
 
4. What are the coolest things you've seen?

Well I bet you could see her from a satellite.

that's so cool.
i saw my house.
oh, and i went to my school and zoomed way in on the stadium and there were people out there playing something. judging by the shadows it was about 11 am, so it was probably a gym class.

Google Earth isn't compatible with Vista (as is a problem not uncommon with Vista. Grrrr.) SO I downloaded Windows Virtual Earth. It's actually not bad! There are some better views, as well. I can see my windows, not close up (I'm in an apartment building).

I can see my house and my neighbor's boat in his yard.  The White House is all blurred in (what else?) white too obviously for security reasons.

Certain government buildings are whited out for national security reasons.

I second Adreme's comment that government buildings are blurred/obscured for security reasons.

The Kaaba Mosque is white because it is.  It's made from a light colored stone.

The Yankee Stadium I see looks like there's a game about to start.  The lines on the field look fresh and there's lots of fans milling about.

Jacobs Field in Cleveland has batting practice going on, same with the Cards in St. Louis.  And lots of football stadiums have the fields in game ready condition.

Coolest thing I've seen would probably be crop circles.

Astroworld!  I loved that place. Had my 14th birthday party there.  :(
