Haha nice. I noticed Canary Wharf's traffic light tree was found in there.

If you want some good sightings, go to this sight (warning: it may slow down your computer):

Dunno if this really qualifies for "General Highway Talk," but I stumbled upon this the other day and it's pretty interesting. It's apparently been around for a while, some guy just trawls through Streetview all over the world and finds the weirdest/funniest/creepiest stuff that gets capture in the Google cameras.

http://9-eyes.com/

Some of it is downright chilling. This one is just great, though:

The corner of Briggs Road and Mission Rock Road in Santa Paula, CA has a man looking straight into the camera.


where is this?  those two streets do not intersect.

Click north or south and it'll be day time. Click east or west and it suddenly turns into night.

If you put it in the right spot, you can still see those guys:

Somewhere there was an image of a guy taking a dump in an outhouse with the door open, I think somewhere in Australia on a very hot day. I do not remember where I saw that image.

It worked for me. Did you click the quoted link instead of the original? I've changed that too, just in case.

Saw the Street View (I remember seeing it before after a past reference somewhere) but there's no guy on a bike anywhere.

True; aside from the main actor and his bicycle that are visible in that image, there's no guy on a bike anywhere. ;-)
