Not a lot of game blog commentary on the big news that broke last night, which is perfectly cool. For the most part I try to keep the real-world out of my blog if it doesn't have any relevance to gaming. But while surfing the Intertubes at lunch, I came across a military presentation detailing the physical area where Osama bin Laden was hiding. It includes this map of the compound:

I don't know about you, but the first thing I thought of when I looked at the map is "wow, I could use that in my games". The place is realistically fortified and would make a great target for an assault or heist scenario. Just add an evil mastermind, his gang of thugs, some non-combatant human shields, and (optionally) sharks with frikkin' lasers.
