She has mental problems. She pretends that it never happened. She also denies getting wasted and forgetting to pick me up at Karate when I was 12. I walked three miles in the snow at night , in sandals and my karate gi, in January in Colorado. She showed up at home three hours later, puked in the hallway and passed out.
She is different now, but refuses to acknowledge what a shitty parent she was.
Edit: Spelled gi correctly.
Also looked up the exact distance. It was actually 3.5 miles
That's Plaza Cleaners in Portland, OR. It says Plaza Cleaners on the sign inside the door. It's located at 909 NW Everett St. You can even see the sign in the window HERE.
Not Elite Cleaners, not Minneapolis. Sorry. I know this came from that buzzfeed post going around, seems like they made shit up.
The location of this place on Google Maps Street View.
Blurry view from the top of the inflatables.
imagine being the google maps driver for this area, i can't believe how bad this place is
i had no idea ~~parts of philly~~ camden was this bad.
This was the best I can get.
I didn't actually know. I just checked Google Maps for crossroads in approximate distances from the places shown in the picture. The first guess was 10 kilometers off, the second crossroads was a direct hit. (There isn't many big roads / crossroads in Lapland.)
Helped being a Finn, though, since knew where to look at.
Just kidding, it's real. Still not sure what he is, but - in another shot, you can see a "CWF" on the back of his getup. South Africa seems nice.
This is in Norway. Reine in Lofoten.
Although this image has most definitely been altered either on camera or afterwards, I was there in February 2011 during the solar storm, seeing some of the most amazing northern lights I've ever seen and this place is absolutely breathtaking.

Here's a link to the meetup location.
EDIT: Thanks to rophel for pointing out that it should be the Rue57 cafe.
Actually, I know exactly where this is, and sorry to say, but this is most likely private property. Note that the red building in the background is Kildare's, though it used to be McFadden's, which can be seen in the google maps link that I provided.
It's a business area with a lot of bars at the south end of Ohio State University that is often patrolled with many police officers and it's not uncommon to see people being kicked out or even banned from this area. My friend was banned for mindlessly pulling some leaves off of one of the trees (the same trees you see the guy leaning against in the video).

I'm pretty sure what you linked to is a run of the river hydroelectric generating station, not any sort of mining operation. Your screenshot was taken here at what seems to be the outlet of the hydroelectric plant. If you move the map a bit farther upstream, you see the inlet to the hydroelectric plant here
Notice how the water going into the dam in the second location is the same colour as the water going out of the plant in the first location (your picture). Also, if you go to street view, you can see loads of power lines going away from the generating station and an old pelton wheel on display at the entrance.
That actually looks more like the White Castle in Brooklyn on Myrtle Ave, Near Washington
SO! After some research I have concluded this is in fact not in Detroit. Notice the similarities between the sidewalks, The front of the white castle, and the building in the background, as well as the location of the Dumpster in the mid right third. I live near this white castle, IT IS MOST CERTAINLY NOT DETROIT.
Also chances are this wedding party actually took place at the bar next door, which is predominantly populated by the ethnic group you guys are referring to, in a grotesque and disgusting way IMO. It's called Bamboo Lounge.
OP. YOU FUCKED UP. How did no one notice this until now?

I'll raise you one better: Google Maps has a 360 degree panorama of the hut!
Friendly google maps link! of a guy buying drugs in Flint. poor google street view team. they were so young too.
I think they were done with the scene. Go up the street a bit. Figured this out because I noticed the car going from left to right so it would have been recording them before the point in the original post.
I love the fat guy in the tank top and his reaction in the drive by. "Hey, is that th... HEY GOOGLE!"
Then the one guy giving the google car the death stare.
edit I HAVE BEEN NOTIFIED THAT HE IS WEARING WHAT WE CALL A TSHIRT. THANK YOU
If we check here in a few months, we'll get to see the OP!
Took this picture in downtown Atlanta a while back, it's an apartment building next to the library.
Here's the Street View.
Yes, and its 100% true.
I was in college, last days of my sophomore year. My school had a tradition of bridge jumping at an old abandon bridge at a big river.
Anyways for the more adventurous types we would jump from a power house + dam up the river about 200 meters.
Anyways. I jumped off the powerhouse for the 2nd time that day. Got pulled over the dam. I am halfway decent at swimming so I managed to stay above the water and swim away for about 30 seconds. But then I was out of energy and my body started to get swept back into the dam's undercurrent.
I was pulled back the entire 20-30 meters I had just swum, into the raging mouth of the dam. I was underneath the water for about 2 minutes. It was all brown. I eventually just accepted the fact that I was going to die and pictured the newspaper headline announcing my death.
After those 2 minutes I got another sudden breath of air, I don't know how I was completely disoriented as to where I was. I was being spit back out by the river. This time I was practically dead so I floated on top of the water as best as I could. I had been screaming the entire time for help. Eventually I was near enough to shore that I was pulled in by my 3 "life saving buddies".
I laid on the shoreline for 15 minutes regaining conscious and breath, I couldnt move and they carried me back the car and then drove to the dorm room. I sat in a shower for 2 hours breathing...
Anyways, my stomach didnt accept any food for about a week and I threw up 20-30 times an hour. I drank lots of water and never went to the hospital.
I looked like a zombie for my older brothers graduation at the end of that week.
edit: a lot of the numbers are approxamite. This happened in 2010.
Already been done (kinda).
With added scuba gear!
For the lazy
Something else mildly interesting. Teds Luncheonette in Largo Florida is where parts of this scene were filmed.
I like to go there for my birthdays to have breakfast, the inside is pretty different, but there are still pictures of Samuel L. Jackson, Tim Roth, Quentin Tarantino, etc on the walls. Plus they make some awesome food too.
Ok, some facts:
1 - This is the Insano water slide at Beach Park Fortaleza.
2 - It's not really new, I think it was built around 1995-6.
3 - I don't think there's ever been any serious accidents there. Aside from getting the wedgie of the ages you're pretty much safe.
4 - I've been there in 1998 and holy shit it's a great feeling.

This neighborhood looks like a charming place to live...
This effect shows up in a few different places, such as here and here. It has even been on reddit before.
Someone in the last thread suggested calling these Pubstomps and I think that's fucking brilliant. =)
Either way, now's the right time to get in touch with your local Barcraft and see if there's any interest among your community. Even if it ends up just being a poll with an overwhelming "not interested", do your part and give it a shot!

A Google Map to see how close Half Moon Shoal is to the Philippians and how far away it is from China.
I don't know why I'm amused by doing this.
Very interesting. Here is the island on google maps, for those wondering... https://maps.google.com/maps?q=Tromelin&hl=en&ie=UTF8&ll=-15.891705,54.528397&spn=0.022412,0.042272&sll=44.145447,-120.583402&sspn=4.280591,10.821533&t=w&hnear=%C3%8Ele+Tromelin&z=15

Found it in Street View

I'm sorry, but you can drive there, so it must be close. ;)
If it doesn't load or takes too long, just get directions from Singapore to Beijing, China using Google Maps - it's pretty funny.
Yeah, there he is :)
Safest Street in Camden. The Goolge Maps drive probably left the doors unlocked as well.
There are no large predators in the waters of the great lakes. Try doing the same thing in ANY body of water in Florida. We used to go to swimming at this lake when I was a kid/teenager. I've been to the bottom out in the middle, which is roughly 25 ft. deep. I've also been swimming in that lake at night on multiple occasions. Stupidest thing I've ever done. We'd pull our cars up to the side of the lake and shine the headlights out over the water to see the yellow reflections off of the eyes of the handful of alligators watching us.
This should be higher up. Here's the exact setting on google streetview for the lazy
Apparently this is huge in Pittsburgh and nowhere else, though I guess they've expanded to Miami, in case no one got the reference. And here's the sandwich
OP's friend most likely works at SuperCheap Auto
The Diomede Islands are two and a half miles apart. An ice bridge can form between the two islands in the winter, as can be seen on Google Maps.
And this is, in my opinion, the greatest thing ever built by man. Have a walk around it.
Darn Google needs to learn to clean up, they left secret strategy documents right out in the open.
Found the source. I am a fan of art in all forms but thought r/WTF would appreciate :)
Edit: here it is on Google maps!
Dammit, beat me to that. The other company visible is Westernco Donuts, and you can see the intersection is 4th and something that starts with "M" -- Marginal Way.

What about The Big Android in the Server cage?
This is grass roofed house near Gol, Norway.
Looking this up on Google Maps - oh HELL no. There is no way I would live in the middle of a desert like that.
The Sill is approximately in the middle. There are some houses/buildings (whether occupied or not, unknown) up and down the Birdsville Track. Marree is SSW from The Sill; Birdsville is NNE.
Edit: I love the bush "airports", like Dulkaninna Airport. A long strip of dirt, in the middle of an endless sea of dirt, with no buildings.
Nice, those are all right next to each other in downtown Denver.
Also I think we can see him taking a pic of the google streets car
I know you're joking, but this is how.
He actually went to my Alma mater, Wheaton College (IL). Supposedly he named the movie after an actual Elm street in Wheaton, IL. I have driven down Elm st many a time. It is your typical suburban street and the perfect backdrop for some horror.
Nay, that's Latvia's capital, Riga.
Well, technically there is an on ramp there.
Actually I don't believe that's the right Shell gas station. There is one closer to Disneyland, on the corner of Ball Road & Harbor Blvd.
Compared to the flickr picture, you can see the Chevron across the intersection, the palm trees to the right and the Shell gas price display.
I drive down Ball Road from time to time and got gas there before.
I live about 50 km from "real" Chernarus, it's based on location in northern Bohemia, Czech Republic.
You can clearly see Elekro and Cherno, Mirkov is Mogilevka and Český Bukov is Pusta.
Notice Kozí Vrch, that's Pik Kozlova, mountain between Elekro and Cherno
so, i'm from a lake forest, and there are two del tacos right down the street from each other. he'll need to be more specific if he wants help
seriously, you can see one while sitting in the other
the corner of Van Buren and Franklin -- Link to streetview
However, there is now a building on the right.
Nice road, dude.
It's actually not a river it's a mountain ridge.

I get confused by the lights near Cambridge Common (the park, not the restaurant) coming out of the underpass on Cambridge Street, where there's a red light and a green arrow at the same time.
Here is the Google street view.
Mountains. When warm and moist air is forced upwards by elevation, storms form.
Actually no it wasn't parked legit. I work in that area.
That took place on the west side of Mercer at the corner of Prince in SoHo. It's a no standing zone. The ticket was legit.
The driver is a douchebag. He ran over a cops foot because he thought he was above getting a ticket and got arrested. That's justice.
Nope. That was Iceland, this is on a small island just North of England, and just West of Norway.

Google allows for people to upload pictures for the inside of businesses or down places which the streetcam car can't do. It's in conjunction with Google Business Photos.
Made me think of the three-way intersection on McGrath highway in Somerville.
Dude, every building in Breaking Bad is real.

This was taken at the Selous Game Reserve in Tanzania. Couldn't tell you what type of giraffe that is though.
If you want to take a look at Google Maps, not a good quality, but TIL that the Island is not on an Ocean (as i thought), just zoom out
Seeing this old abandoned school reminds me of the old Dallas High School. The building is right in the middle of downtown, was abandoned decades ago, and always looks kind of surreal to me, like a Hollywood set for a horror film. I've always wanted to break in and check out the inside.
It will be gone soon. A builder has been approved to turn it into an apartment complex.
I have seen these all over the US and Europe, nothing new.
Edit: Several of these on the A1 in Luxembourg.
Edit: Wikipedia on them
A while ago I put together a map showing the area the battle takes place.
Larger version, in case anyone's interested: http://i.imgur.com/sFW4M.jpg
Also, here's what it looks like today, courtesy of Google Streetview. Obviously a lot has changed, but the three buildings that feature most in the photo are still standing. The rightmost building still has a pharmacy, amusingly.
I was only there for eight weeks, but I can provide a few notes for people who haven't been there:
The first two minutes are of him driving around the ATLAS site, which is across the main street from the main CERN site. Basically, the big building has a giant hole in the ground that they used for lowering the beamline and ATLAS detector components. There are similar holes at the other collision points around the ring, where the other detectors (CMS, ALICE, LHCb) are located. (I'm not sure if there are holes at the collision points where there aren't any detectors, but I would guess so?) The giant tanks are probably for liquid helium storage.
He then crosses into the main CERN site (the somewhat triangular campus south of Route de Meyrin) through the main entrance. The eastern side is the more populated part, while the western side is more sparse, and he first takes us over to the western side.
@3:11, he is turning onto the road that forms the southern edge of the CERN campus, preparing to head back east.
@4:00, the building visible on the right is Building 40, which is arguably the main building at CERN. It's pretty inside. Building 38, on the left, is one of two hostels for visiting scientists and students.
@4:20, as he passes under the bridge, the building on the left houses the main restaurant on the CERN campus, R1, as well as the main auditorium, which was where the Higgs announcement seminars were held.
At R1, they serve Doner kebab every Monday. Or at least, they did when I was there. I miss CERN.
Lastly, he parks at Building 40.
Meanwhile in San Jose, California, USA.

I'm a gay male Finn, and I never knew that the tower of the Helsinki Olympic Stadium was a functional gaydar! Or that it turned into all those colors! Thank you! This solves so many of my problems!
Possibly not coincidentally, Madonna is giving a concert in the stadium as I write this. (You may, indeed, ask why I'm not in the audience, but the better question is, why I'm not in the audience of the Björk concert that is on at the same time in the city. My excuse is that the last time I had Björk tickets, she cancelled, and I haven't forgiven her yet.)

The data is completely wrong? In what sense? That there aren't that many bases around Iran? That the bases are in the wrong place?
Here is a much more detailed map of the region.
