Google's "Street View" finally has a meaningful impact

While "Street View" is good for many things (wasting time at work, spying on the neighbors, blog fodder when amusing images are included, etc.), apparently, it's now a weight loss motivator.

An English man (or "bloke" if you will) weighing in just under 300 lbs was caught on Street View and SO embarrassed by his ginormous beer gut, that he got in gear and lost nearly 100 lbs. He joined a gym, stuck to a healthy diet, and now about a 5th grader lighter, his blood pressure is down and he feels great.

It's official: Google can do EVERYTHING.
