Hey,if I turn right at the Long Wharf, dive in, and start swimming until something bites my ass, can I sue Google?  This IS America after all.

    Estimated travel time of 29 days and 12 hours? That’s crazy talk! I’m sure I could do it in 29 days. What a farce this google-thingy is.

    I also don’t believe in 6 minute abs. (SAM reference)

    That was hysterical. We’re having a lot of fun with it at work today. Thanks for sharing.

    Absolutely brilliant. I can’t believe this only has 2 comments. Instruction 21 isn’t bad either. A ‘slight’ right at E05. Hate to swim all that way, only to end up taking the sharp right…

    This is great.

    and I’m sure, like me, many spent the rest of the day Googleing directions to London (3,462 miles), and Dublin and Rome and , well you get the point.

    Just take a look at the satellite images for 20 and 21. Certainly can’t wait to get to the blue waters of Paris!
