World Wild Web: Map of Strange

Found this through Google Personalized homepage gadgets:

which features a football field with a carved wang, a few randomly captured chopper and fighter jets, a whole series of white horses, a bunch of extravagant randomness.

From the website: The MapOfStrange website is a way of recording strange, wacky, weird and wonderful anomalies, sights and oddities from Google Maps and Google Earth.

In other words, a lot of people with too much time on their hands look through cities, streets, farms, and open oceans, in high enough magnification to find these pictures to entertain a lot of other people with too much time on their hands. And by the look of those white horses, a lot of people with WAY too much time on their hands actually go out and make these things.

  1. haha…1 min after reading the description what the website is about, I closed it…not interested…like you said…it’s for those who has nothing better to do.

  2. stlc, Yes, this is a complete waste-of-time website, a business solely relied on people’s procrastination and lack of life.

    Tina, what do you mean? I didn’t have to give a name anywhere? Do you mean somewhere on this blog or on that website?

  3. you only have to give a name if you click on the map image itself… i guess that’s what tina saw?

    lol 我記得之前在某人(forgot who it was)的網誌上也有看到一些很有趣的 google images… 印象最深的是在沙漠中 (and in the middle of nowhere) 看到幾個人牽著幾隻駱駝在走路,畫質清晰到連他包包裡放什麼都看得見耶 0w0 (不過有幾張讓我懷疑那是事後貼上去的,like the helicopter one)

  4. Haha… yeah… if so, the Google engineers must have put them on there on purpose. I guess they also have too much time on their hands 😛
    What I really want to know is: who the hell found that submarine in an open ocean!!??
