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.
THERES PLENTY MORE MONEY TO MAKE

HOT DOG STAND OUTSIDE RUE CAFE
ASK FOR MISTER INPUT
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!
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
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!

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
Try looking around here.
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
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.
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.
City, Missouri, USA
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.
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.

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.

Dude, every building in Breaking Bad is real.
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
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
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.)
Trivia! The apartment Steve and I started reddit in was 72 Bristol Road
Medford, MA 02155.
It's spelled two different ways.Fuck it, I'll just go tomorrow and take a picture.
Edit: You need to turn around to see the sign. The main street is E Morgan Avenue and N Dexter Avenue, located in Evansville, IN.
Definitely not Thayer: Exchange Terrace.
so it is real, Narcosist found the exact page, here it is guys
>Found it. I actually found it months ago another time this was reposted.
The Fisherman's Friend in Stonington Maine.
They took Google Street View to my home town of Ross River, Yukon, and for some reason drove way up the Canol Road with the car. I imagine they turned back when they figured out that they really weren't going anywhere and were likely to run out of fuel.

Not many people even in St. Louis know this, but we actually have a professional football team. No, really! Their called the St. Louis Rams and play in an old domed stadium called the "Edward Jones Dome" just north of downtown. They were apparently pretty good about ten years ago, too.
I like the part where they removed the character from their house and turned it into a modern piece of shit.
In my old neighborhood the more affluent Indians will erect monstrosities like this The house had beautiful front yard, trees(plural) oh and didn't look like a fucking fort.
Oh well money talks as they say.
Just heard from an Army Reserve friend of mine that Camp Atterbury (located just south of Indianapolis, IN) just finished up a massive international joint training exercise. 11 nations participated in the event and (relative to the exercise) responded with equipment from neighboring air bases, etc. This could very well explain all the Chinook and C-130 sightings in the Michigan/Indiana/Ohio area.

Here's my theory... they all took something that went bad on them. They realize they're in trouble, pile into car, give the job of driving to the least affected/last one to take it. The driver is still pretty bad though and ends up getting confused and lost. Maybe even went around the barricades thinking he was at the hospital, only to find himself in woods again.
You roll up, which by this time the passengers have passed out and the driver is in a really bad way. He's freaking out because he's not feeling well but he has no idea where he is. When you start shining your light in the car he thinks you are a cop and he's now completely frozen, heart racing, not knowing what to do. A rational mind would have him asking the "police officer" for help, but he is not rational and it's taking him minutes to complete a thought.
When you walk back to your car his flight instinct kicks in. He has to get off the road. Coincidentally the storm and arrival of the power company truck mask his departure.
He's not going fast. He's just looking for a place to pull off. If he gets off the road maybe the cop won't bother him again. By this time he's getting close to passing out like his friends.
This is when he sees the downed tree. Either he decided to just get off the road or it was a poorly conceived u-turn, but he ends up leasurely heading straight off the road right here. Reflexively he turns off the car just prior to passing out himself which turns off the hazards that would have shown you or the power crew where he'd gone. Sadly, all three succumb to whatever they took and that's where they remain.
Actually taken from beneath the Manhattan Bridge, looking at the Brooklyn Bridge (look at windows to the right). Probably using a telephoto lens or similar to distort the range:

Here is a cool little vid on LA in the 50's
Doesn't seem like anyone got shot. Probably just a water gun.
From what I've been able to find, it appears that:
Division runs along what was once a major survey line that designated boundaries of land ownership. Source
This line ran parallel to the Willamette Baseline, which along with the Willamette Meridian defined the grid system of sections and townships for all property in Oregon and Washington. It divided the first and second rows of square-mile sections south of the Willamette baseline. Source
Found some vague sources saying that Division was once known as Section Line road. It seems as if this name persists in a very small stretch of deep Division.
Sadly not a very interesting explanation..
How about this. According to Wikipedia, this is where it happened. Notice how there's higher resolution available to the East and West, but centred over the "accident" site, there's only very low resolution photos available. A cover-up? You tell me. ;)
I found you
It was awesome.
Originally my plan was to drive through a tunnel that leads back to the Golden Gate Bridge. Turns out that the tunnel was closed at 7:00 PM for construction, so the second big climb on the chart is me getting back to a road I came in on.
Here's a pic I took of the westbound descent from Hawk Hill in the Marin Headlands going towards Point Bonita. Riding down this hill felt like being dropped out of an airplane and riding on the wings of angels. It was one of the most exhilarating experiences I've ever had in my life, and I'm over 50 years old.
Dieu Du Ciel. Their brew pub is small, food is good, beer is great. I would say you can make a weekend of just this.
Good thing about Quebec is that they have brew pubs like we have bars, so most "bars" sever their own beer.
EDIT: I almost forgot, I made a map when I went:
Fort Wayne, IN, if I'm not mistaken. I fucking hate my city and these dickweeds in Guy Fawkes masks. Understand the mask's history before you fucking wear it.
EDIT: Allow me to clarify. I hate my city's occupy movement. Goddamn, what a bunch of superficially rebellious fuckwits.
And, yep, intersection of Clinton and Main.
This list isn't even accurate...
Here's Laguna Seca
Yeah. I was wondering about that. I just don't think there are any other plausible options...
EDIT: Apparently, there is another plausible option: Rieu Cafe
Here's Noshahr Canals, here's Wake Island, here's Damavand Peak but there's nothing else there, just rocks and snow, so the BF3 map may be based on something else, and I haven't found anything else. Maybe others have.
Also take a look at google maps, switch between the satellite and the map view:
Très bonne nouvelle. Vraiment, ça, c'est une très, très bonne nouvelle!
Avec la construction de l'autoroute 30 et du nouveau pont qui traverse le fleuve près des Cèdres, les camions n'auront plus besoin de traverser Montréal, ce qui y soulagera d'autant les autoroutes.
C'était pas mal idiot de reconstruire Turcot avec la même capacité qu'en 1967, compte tenu de l'autoroute 30.
Et la nomination de Thierry St-Cyr comme sous-ministre, c'est encore une bonne nouvelle; il a fait du bon travail en tant que député fédéral, et il habite à Verdun, donc il est pas mal au courant de ce qui concerne Turcot. Et comme c'est un ingénieur, il se fera pas passer des crosses par les contracteurs.

I'm really not so sure.
