Google's Street view allows you to delve into any area of the world, and experience some of the strangest sights ever. We've picked out our favourite fun and in some cases unexplainable pictures.
Google goes off the grid
Maybe they should call this a River View instead of a Street View. This shot of the Victoria Highway in Australia shows the rugged terrain to expect when driving. And it's not a flash flood either; this is where the highway requires passengers to cross the Victoria River - no bridge included.
Banned: too hot for Street View
Since it launched Street View, Google has taken a lot of criticism over the images available on the service. In many cases Google removed the offending pictures.
But because of the miracle of the internet, those images will never really disappear. Here are a few of the classics. In the upper left-hand corner is a Street View from Australia of a man who should have shut the door before taking care of business. Other banned views here include a raging fire, what appears to be an inebriated man, topless sunbathers, a car trunk that ate a woman, and someone who (we hope) locked himself out of his apartment.
Google most recently removed a series of images that showed a deer hit by the vehicle that captures Street Views for Google.
Back to the future with Futuro
This is not a Street View of a flying saucer parked in a Covington, Kentucky, backyard. Instead it's a Futuro House - an oddly shaped prefabricated house designed by architect Matti Suuronen. According to an entry in Wikipedia, only about 100 of them were built in the 1960s and 1970s.
Point and (please don't) shoot Street View
Taken out of context, this rifle-toting man sporting a Harley Davidson sweatshirt looks pretty sinister. But who knows, maybe he raises puppies for a living. I wouldn't roll down my window and ask, however.
