Silly Google Maps

Try this:

  1. go to www.google.com
  2. click on “maps”
  3. click on “get directions”
  4. type “New York” in the first box (the “from” box)
  5. type “London” in the second box (the “to” box)
  6. hit get directions
  7. scroll down to step #23

AHAHHAHAHHA that’s bloody hilarious.

I wonder if the programmers did that just for kicks?

HAHAHA That’s awesome!

That was awesome but I was actually looking for directions to London Ontario.

Why don’t I find this funny?

Because you have no sense of humour…?

Cos you can’t swim?

Or maybe I’m not a nerd.

no, that’s not it. I think it’s the lack of a sense of humor.

What’s almost as funny is that they have you going via france. Apparently you can’t swim directly to England, you have to make landfall at Le Havre first.

…'cause you can’t get laid?

Oh wait, I’m confusing cause and effect again…

Ask.com is not buggy like that and it actually figures out you might have asked about London Ontario (but it defaults to London OH first).

Another nice thing is that they do multipoint routing - i.e., going from point A to point B to point C to point D to … and it can even close the circle back to A.

Much more reliable than Google Maps.
