    This Vietnam history-via-porn got ranked "inappropriate":

  3. Probably the location of a Starbucks.

    It is The Nothing!

  5. Look at the lights coming out of it and all of the distortion. It is obviously an alien spacecraft. The big black box is either a cloaking device or Google censoring the presence of aliens.

      Actually, alien spacecraft are transitioning over to instantaneous Photoshopping. And that's not just for photos and video; one of those suckers could hover right over you, and you'd look straight at it and say, "Nah, I ain't buying it. That has to be Photoshopped."

    Clearly their crackhead-removal algorithm has had some unintended consequences.

    Someone did that on purpose?

    Clearly it's the day/night interface.

      I got similar curvy tentacle-flare in some of my panos: the "Lounge": one, scroll left.

        The location I first saw it was right in front of Coors Field, and I thought maybe it was a decoration for some crazy baseball promotion I didn't know about. But now that I wasted two hours clicking around, I see how it's just some kind of flare thing.

        BTW if you have a good eye, you can scroll down the strip in Vegas and see the dudes handing out the porn flyers. Awesome.

      It's probably a combination of lens flare and the stitching process.

      Dimensional nexus, ley line, alternate universe Gateway Arch briefly visible... something like that.

  9. Hmm. I used to work about four blocks from there. The company I was working with got bought out by Mormons, though. Coincidence? I think not!

    When my friend met Frank Chu at 111 Minna, she said his breath was so bad she had to give him TWO pieces of gum in order to tolerate sitting by him.

  11. belgand says:

    Hmm... a giant, gaping void... Daly City?

    FWIW, I actually heard about these on the radio...

    Certain places they will black out the block around them for public service reasons: hospices, battered women's shelters, planned parenthood clinics.
