Nah, just go down a little further north, to the end of the road. I'll be right here when you get back, promise.

I guess the "Free Candy" sign was at the start of the road.

It drops you in a random location in Street View--anywhere in the world, or limit it to specific countries, cities, etc.

Tool around in Street View looking for clues to your location. (Oh look, a sign for a eucalyptus oil distillery and a street named South Coast Road--southern Australia maybe?)

In another little window, zoom all the way in on a world map and click where you think you are. It will show you how close you were and award points.

That tells me "no results found for your search".

Has anyone tried wandering around central London on streetview recently? It might be fixed by now but for a while they were using pictures taken after dark and you could hardly see anything.

The same - my missus went for a pint at the pub opposite the RNIB, and I was looking through to see if the vans had captured any of the Good Boys that apparently park up outside the pub.

Andrew Farrell, Tuesday, 14 May 2019 12:51 (four months ago) link

what is a good boy?

I don't understand, are you all talking about this feature?

Yeah that geoguessr game is super fun & addictive, huge fan.

One Eye Open, Tuesday, 14 May 2019 19:33 (four months ago) link

that's the one. it's been missing since yesterday, just shows the date the picture was taken but no option to move it back.

who knows. it seems that it might be temporary:

weird, it's available for a certain distance around my house but not elsewhere. coincidence?

The Pingularity (ledge), Wednesday, 15 May 2019 15:58 (four months ago) link

strange. it works in a few canadian cities, but not all of them. but still not in tokyo.
still furious.

I'm pissed off at streetview. I managed to get in it when the car drove near my workplace last summer. They updated the photo sometime last fall. This thread had prompted me to go back and check it out, but it had already been overwritten by another pass they did in October.

HOWEVER, the streetview of my house hasn't been updated since 2013. I've had the siding replaced since then and would prefer to see an updated result. Another house on my street also had major renovations done and the house next door was completely bulldozed and rebuilt.

I had never heard of the time travel function before. It's available on my residential street, but not in the part of downtown DC where I work.

i think this is peter dinklange taking out his trash. i just stumble on it, but he does live in the area.

How embarrassing to be caught wearing your "I'm A Virgin" t-shirt by the Google Street Car

https://i.imgur.com/cmv7NkN.png

https://i.imgur.com/Hg66VRb.png

https://i.imgur.com/P85FlQ4.png

pplains, Sunday, 7 July 2019 00:49 (two months ago) link

the back of that says something like "and this is an old shirt" IIRC

StanM, Sunday, 7 July 2019 06:21 (two months ago) link

So briefly off-topic, this shirt makes no sense.

https://i.imgur.com/FK4k65W.jpg

1.) Why a new shirt say it's an old shirt? If it was bought when the old person was still a virgin, shouldn't it have said "this is a new shirt?"

2.) What if s/he was still a virgin, then what difference would the shirt's age be?

3.) Do they make shirts that say "I watch Quantum Leap (but this is an old shirt)"?

4.) OK, so "I watch Quantum Leap" probably = "I'm a virgin", but you see where I'm going with this.

pplains, Sunday, 21 July 2019 01:48 (two months ago) link

I think the implication is that you were a virgin when you bought the shirt but might not still be.

o. nate, Sunday, 21 July 2019 01:52 (two months ago) link

Yeah, but why would you buy a new shirt that said this is an old shirt.

pplains, Sunday, 21 July 2019 02:28 (two months ago) link

it's a kind of real life clickbait joke. like the deliberate funny false advertising signs that say "FREE BEER" or "TOPLESS WAITRESSES" in big letters and then something like "tomorrow" or "next door" in smaller letters, which you only see after they got your attention.

StanM, Sunday, 21 July 2019 02:42 (two months ago) link

At least those signs aren't outright LIES.

Key West, Fla. --- 1971

BRENDA, 17: "Oh this shirt is great! I can wear it since I am a virgin! Good thing it also says 'this is an old shirt' so 48 years from now when I'm surrounded my family and grandchildren, people will realize that it was only true when i bought it, which is today."

pplains, Sunday, 21 July 2019 02:47 (two months ago) link

I GET THE JOKE, I just don't get the logic behind it.
