I heart Google

Lately I've found myself spending all my free time at work sightseeing on Google Maps - What a blessing!

Here's s few of my favourites:

1. The Interdimensional Portal
2. Michael Jordan's whopper of a mansion
3. An apparent mid-air refuelling
4. Area 51 - Yeah it's bland but it's not exactly open to the public so this is about as close as you'll ever get!
5. The Mega Ramp is the brainchild of professional skateboarder Danny Way. It’s a nine-story monster half pipe built out in California’s desert where Danny set world records for the longest and highest air on a skateboard in 2002.
6. A big-ass pink rabbit
7. uShaka Marine World in Durban
8. Disneyworld (Florida) - You may want to scroll up, it's pretty big Disneyland (California)
9. A flying car (yeah it's tiny - but it's still there!)
10. Unless you’ve been hiding under a rock, then you’ll have heard all about everyone’s favourite show, ‘Lost‘. And if you’re a fan, then you’ll know that the numbers 4, 8, 15, 16, 23 and 42 are of great significance.

So what happens if you use the numbers as latitude and longitude co-ordinates? Obviously you could use them in several different ways, but if you stick to the rough area where the survivors believe flight 815 crashed, then you’ll find this tiny little island

It's quite addictive isn't it? (Yes!)

Google Sightseeing is a great place to look for more...

I'm afraid the interdimensional portal was where Biff handed the Sport's Almanac to Biff after stealing Marty and the Doc's de Lorean time machine thus creating a rift in the space-time continuum :(

The flying car was in fact the de Lorean time machine (or just a black car parked next to a white) ;)

The Air-To-Air refuel is not right. The Bigger of the planes should be in front, refueling tanker is the front plane and the fuel travel backwards from above to lower (with gravity). :-)

Maybe they were done refuelling *shrugs* :)

I think it's the mommy whale just giving birth to the baby. The baby always swims in front of the mommy.

That's just a survival tactic...if a huge Mega Shark comes out the dark and devours the baby whale, the adult knows to change course and choose a different route to Nemo's birthday party...sorta like Saudi's having their wives walk in front to check for landmines.
