    Getting directions with Google Maps

    Let's suppose you want to go from New York (USA) to Antwerp (Belgium). You try to get the shortest route using Google Maps. Take a look at the result: http://maps.google.com/maps?f=d&hl=e...=UTF8&z=3&om=1

    (especially step 23)

    LMAO that's a good one! Somehow I doubt many people would survive...

    So, men are noisy and aggressive, and women are delicate and sensitive. At least it's clear that Beethoven was male; but it does suggest that Chopin was female, and Mozart was both.

    doesnt look that far, only takes up half the screen!
    Choose band. Choose bars. Choose more bars. Choose visiting all those bars in one night and waking up next to a complete stranger. Choose TMP. Choose a name. Choose staying up all night talking to random people. Choose to increase your alcohol tolerance.

    Choose your future. Choose band life.

    Cool Google Maps does it again! This time you get to swim!

    Google Maps has obviously been sponsored by some health and fitness organisation, as the recommended route from New York to London is to swim 3000 miles across the Atlantic!!

    They also have listened to Brass Band members by offering directions using Pubs as landmarks!

    I always joked to my friend from West Yorkshire that he should write a book entitled 'Navigating round Yorkshire via pubs' cos every time I asked him where something was he'd go 'Remember so-and-so pub that we went to? Well....'

    Euphonium players, eh?!
