I find it pretty awesome that Texas has a flag amongst the other Countries.

Just to humour people, search these in on google earth/maps.

66°33'13.75"S, 99°50'24.84"E
66°36'14.70"S, 99°43'11.11"E

Caves, or secret underground bunkers where the nazi's are still hiding, or entrances to hollow earth? I shall leave them to your own minds.

Ive heard that the satellites just dont fly over the poles cause theres nothing there, or temps or gravitational pull or some kind of reason... and that is the reasoning behind why there are no pics from space...

But in hindsight nothing would surprise me anymore if there was a huge tunnel between the poles or something else up with them

Yes the reason they do not overfly the poles is that the closer you get to a perpendicular orbit from the equator the harder it is to achieve and maintain this orbit. Thus since there is nothing to see there but sheets of ice, there is no real need to spend the time and money to photograph it, with say the land sat satellite.
Polar Orbits
However it HAS BEEEN DONE. It is just not common.
North Pole

There are many photos from the ground expeditions and or the aircraft that support them however. So while there is no nice big orbital shot posted for Google earth there are indeed pictures of the poles. The reason Google earth has the “smudge” at the poles, is because where the actual photo coverage ends up to the pole they use software to extrapolate the missing pixels. This causes a blurry look as the software has no way to recreate the actual image; it is just using the last few pixels on the edge of the photos to then wrap around the sphere.

I know this topic have been covered many itmes in the past here on ATS, I remember reading similar posts over the years.
