Being a Google Maps engineer have to be among the best jobs on this planet. You get to drive a cool automobile from Google and have the possibility to doc the world round you for all to see. It most likely pays fairly properly, too.
Nonetheless, having all that Google swag could make you a goal for individuals from all walks of life. Outsider interactions with the Google Avenue View automobile can lead to some hilarious circumstances, or (extra usually) create some harmful and uncomfortable eventualities. Don’t consider me? Simply ask these 13 Google staff…
1. Cops making an arrest.
2. The stays of the overturned Italian cruise ship, the Costa Concordia.
3. Opening hearth on the Google Avenue View automobile in Colombia.
4. The scene of a homicide as seen from Google Maps.
5. These guys are clearly not completely happy to see the Google van.
6. An injured bull within the street.
7. One other homicide scene?
(Folks on-line later claimed the darkish spots had been made by a canine getting out of the water.)
8. Judging from these photographs, it appears to be like just like the van really hit that poor donkey.
9. On his approach to the station.
10. An aerial view of a farm in Switzerland rising a crop of marijuana.
11. A complete drug deal happening caught by Google Maps in Chicago.
12. Preparing for one thing messy.
13. How impolite.
I had no concept there have been so many lifeless our bodies and crime scenes accessible on Google Maps. I hope Google will get round to scrubbing these out of its database someday quickly. One factor is for sure, although: I gained’t be visiting these locations anytime quickly.
