Google Maps and Driving Directions...

Postby sierra2469alpha » Tue, 12 Aug 2008 9:33 pm

Hey friends - liked this XKCD comic from the other day:

Mrs C and I tried to use Google driving directions one time, and it put us in almost the same situation - had to "find the ferry man" !!!

Hope your enjoy....

Public transport directions now also available on Google Maps.

I can't find the options to set for astral plane directions, though.

Unfortunately Google have fixed the bug that gave driving directions over the ocean :( Very good for a laugh! but I see that they do manage to pick up car ferry's.

Well, not the Atlantic but holy crud...

6. Take exit 169 for NE 45th St 0.3 mi
7. Slight left at 7th Ave NE 262 ft
8. Take the 1st left onto NE 45th St 1.0 mi
9. Turn left at Stone Way N 0.9 mi
10. Turn left at N Northlake Way 0.2 mi
11. Kayak across the Pacific Ocean Entering Hawaii 2,756 mi
12. Continue straight 0.1 mi
13. Turn left at Kuilima Dr 0.5 mi


This isn't a bug; it's a sign that somebody's having way too much fun.

24. Take the 1st right onto S Beretania St 0.1 mi
25. Take the 1st left onto Continue to follow Unknown road
1.0 mi
26. Continue straight onto Kalakaua Ave 0.9 mi
27. Kayak across the Pacific OceanEntering Japan
