This is sort of strange to me. I was looking on Google Images for a screensaver of Earth from space. I click on one, and it took me to the original page where the image was, alright cool no big deal. But then I look below the picture (its one of those spammer kind of wallpaper sites apparantly) and I see something like 'Hot Girls In "*****" and it listed the exact town where I live. Is this some flook coincidence, or is it something with my IP address that people can see? Did Google Images betray me? Anyway, if you have any advice it would be appreciated.

This happens to me all the time. The ad is registering your IP address and is, in turn, replacing the *** with where your IP is coming from, which is your town.
