    This is a Google Maps view of Geldrop (links to actual Google Map), a Netherlands town with streets named after characters from J.R.R. Tolkien's books. WHY does it have streets named after J.R.R. Tolkien characters? No clue. Plus it's Friday afternoon on Valentine's Day so I... / Continue →

    This is the Christian Science Church at 2nd and Highland in Dixon (it was meant to be), Illinois, as seen from above in Google Maps. It looks like a sad little pecker. But, when the image is rotated 180-degrees... BONER-CITY, USA. Now only if there was a vagina shaped roll... / Continue →

    Note: It wasn't actually Google Maps, it's the Russian equivalent called Yandex Maps. I just said Google Maps in the title because because if I'd said Yandex you'd be all, 'Dammit, the GW's been drinking again' (which I have but I'm trying to play it off). A woman in Russia r... / Continue →

    According to Google Maps and other atlases, Sandy Island is a little island in the South Pacific to the east of Australia. Except, SURPRISE, it isn't really there. I bet it was a fake island Google Maps added to ensure nobody was copying their maps and trying to sell them as ... / Continue →

    I remember this circulating the internet like six months ago but I'm gonna be honest when I tell you that I drank a lot and forgot about it. Thankfully, the internet is cyclical (and I'm clean now. Okay, clean-er. Fine, DIRTIER THAN EVER) and it's come back around again. Th... / Continue →

    April Fools': the day you remember just how lame all your friends are. I'm kind of glad April Fools' fell on a weekend this year because I didn't get duped into posting anything that was fake not knowing it. But is that gonna stop the exact same thing from happening today? A... / Continue →

    People scouring China's deserts on Google Maps hoping to find God knows what have uncovered numerous unusual structures (others after the jump), including this series of....well, whatever the hell this is. The world's shittiest corn maze? The tracks are perfectly executed, ... / Continue →

    Note: Larger version HERE in case you're convinced somebody in Uganda actually gives a shit about Googling "zombies". SPOILER: No. In Kenya, absolutely. This is a map created by plotting the prevalence of Google interweb searches for the word "zombie" on Google Maps. Unsurp... / Continue →

    Bob Mewse used to be 300 pounds. Now he's 200 pounds. All thanks to seeing a picture of himself on Google Street View, being thoroughly disgusted, and deciding to do something about it (and actually doing that thing -- that's the key). Me? I'm so fat I can't reach my belly ... / Continue →

    Wayne manor? It certainly could be. Although it doesn't really look big enough to be honest. But who else would have the bat symbol in their pool? Just some rich a-hole with more money than he (I suspect it's not a girl, otherwise it would be a stiletto) knows what to do wi... / Continue →
