I'm so brilliant, at first I thought, "Why did they find a dead deer in the ditch and throw it back up on the road?"

When Google Streeview inevitably helps solve a murder in a city, please bump this thread.

Will you accept a kidnapping?

I will not accept the kidnapping success story. I will only accept a shot of someone chasing another person with a bloody knife raised high!

Landmarks and skyscrapers I can see. But ordinary people's homes? Christ some of these spoiled internet assholes need a dose of reality. Motherfucking hate these people.

I just discovered that google streetview existed yesterday. Accidentally. I inadvertently clicked something or another trying to see what part of Auckland my new apartment was in when suddenly a vivid, sunny, interactive panorama was presented to me and I was like OMG MY NEW LIFE and it was crazy.

Gathering the imagery for Street View requires quite a bit of driving; as such, we take safety very seriously. Unfortunately, accidents do happen -- as some people have noticed, one of our Street View cars hit a deer while driving on a rural road in upstate New York. Due to several user requests using the "Report a concern" tool, these images are no longer available in Street View.

1 month passes...

London's up

I drove past the car, and then it pulled out behind me and was sat there as we waited at lights. I really hope I'm in there (although the car's on Google Maps already at the previous owner's house).

Bloody typical - Derby, Nottingham, Leicester...we are truly the Forgotten City.

Amazing quality though - seems better than a lot of the US streetviews - are they using a different camera?

Hull of course is the first and true Forgotten City and we've been left out again here. ( leicester missing is wrong too.)

Scunthorpe though... why? eh?

Oh hey, Oxford streetview!

Which goes no further west than the station, so I can't invite you all to spy on my work. Not that you'd want to.

I accidentally ended up outside my GP's surgery when trying to drag the icon to somewhere a couple of blocks away from it, and am relieved to note that I am not pictured coming out of the door clutching pamphlets about embarrassing conditions or anything.

What an invasion of privacy-google is a cancer and should be obliterated, what happened to our right of privacy, I saw one of these last week parked in a private driveway near Totton College in Southampton am I glad I'm emigrating.

Wow. Just looked at a picture of my house without any cars in the driveway and got a little creeped out. This is what your house looks like when someone's casing the joint!

Yeah, I think they might even be posted up on this thread somewhere. I was just amazed at how they didnt blur out any of the faces.
