    This is a Google Maps view of Geldrop (links to actual Google Map), a Netherlands town with streets named after characters from J.R.R. Tolkien's books. WHY does it have streets named after J.R.R. Tolkien characters? No clue. Plus it's Friday afternoon on Valentine's Day so I... / Continue →

    According to Google Maps and other atlases, Sandy Island is a little island in the South Pacific to the east of Australia. Except, SURPRISE, it isn't really there. I bet it was a fake island Google Maps added to ensure nobody was copying their maps and trying to sell them as ... / Continue →
