Gosh, PC Magazine. No fewer than three popups before I can get to your slideshow? That encourages return visits!

Word. I have intentionally developed the habit of averting my gaze from the content of popups while I scan for the close button. Fark intrusive ads.

Darn, was hoping to see some new pics.  These have been around for quite sometime, haven't they?

I'm surprised that nobody's tried to use google street view as an advertising vehicle.  Simply follow the car around with an easily identifiable slogan/advertisement/logo/whatever for miles and miles, and Step 3 (Profit!)

Better yet, put together a FLEET of vehicles to follow ALL the street view cars around the whole country!

Half cat is real, he's being chased by PAC Man's dog.

I managed to make it on to Google Street View about 5-6 years ago, although I wasn't doing anything particularly exciting, just walking back to work from break.

Hmmm - just to speculate, it was in the summer when they were there, and it was mid day, probably quite hot - maybe some condensation on the lens? And holy hell I just realized how fat I was back then.

My brother was mowing the lawn in his Walmart brand jean shorts when the Google car drove by, so I give him shiat for it.

The neurosurgeons at your hospital are amazing and like tiny, tiny gods.

/Fiance, then girlfriend at the time, had a stroke, at 23, the weekend I'd brought her home for thanksgiving to meet my family.
//She's now completely fine. The stroke left *no lingering* issues.
///Go UNC Chapel Hill Hospital.

Tiny pictures, multiple screens first, can't browse with your arrow keys, have to scroll for each, separate page for each.  Yeah, all-around HORRIBLE slideshow.

I had the blurry face bug.  I got better.

Several privacy suits in the EU later, and Voila- enough blurring not to get sued for it again.

They apparently blurred it since...

I've made it on twice. Same location, while I was driving to work. 2 different cars, about 5 years apart.
