Finding craters from home - a job for ASD folk

Many people with Aspergers or other ASD diagnosis want to find work that they can do from home in peace and quiet. With the advent of Google Earth you too can find meteor craters. While the pay is variable you have to admit, the investment is low except for time. And if geological structures, meteor impacts or astrophysics are one of your obsessions then this is right up your alley. All you need to do is grab Google Earth and go to town. Here are some examples of others who did the same thing:
