Fascinating find on Google Maps
« on: November 05, 2010, 09:26:51 PM »
Head over to http://maps.google.com and put in Japan as your starting point and China as your ending point.  Scroll down to step 43 and be fascinated.

Did this with a friend a couple days ago after seeing it on Failblog. I love Google. ^_^
So what if I am, huh? Anyways, I work better when I'm drunk. It makes me fearless! If I see a bad guy, I'll just point my sword at him and saaaaaaaaaay, "Hey! Bad guy! You're not s'posed to be here! Go home or I'll stick you with my sword 'til you go, 'Ouch! I'm dead!' Ah-ha-ha!" Ha-ha. *hic* See? Ain't no one gonna be messin' wit' ol', Benny!

For California to China, I love how they have you go all the way up to Washington and then kayak to Hawaii.
I have my cake and eat it too, until it's gone.  Then I can't do either.

kayaking is fun.  they want you to spend more money on gas and kayak more.

It also does that going to England.... you dive off a dock in New York City so you also better be prepared to swim through the yuck. :P
