    If you're in need of a side splitting laugh attack, follow the given directions...

    1) Go to googlemaps
    2) Click on "get directions"
    3) Type "Japan" as your starting location
    4) Type "China" as your destination location
    5) Submit, then put down any food, or drink you might be in the process of consuming. It might also be a good idea to make sure your pets are a safe distance away.
    6) Scroll down to step 43.
    7) Remember, that when laughing hysterically for several minutes, you must remember to occasionally breathe!

    MissScrimmage, try China to the United States, and then go to step 93. Thanks to KCJO for finding that one!

    Funny. I'm sure it's one of those 'lost in translation' things...kind of like authentic chinese food menus translated to English.

    Actually thank my sixth graders. We had a minute at the end of the day yesterday, and I already had my projector on, so I showed them the Japan to China (which they found hilarious!). So they were calling out a bunch of different destinations, and we hit on that!

    Too funny!

    I've been talking to my sixth graders a lot lately about being critical of what is on the Internet and double checking sources. This may be the example I need to really drive in that point! I'll have to show them this next week!

    That's a great idea MissScrimmage. We were using Google maps the other day looking at pyramids in Giza, and they were asking how Google knows every single house and what-not. We talked about satellite imagery, but also how some could be computer generated.

    It was also a great talk about how Google doesn't know everything, since my house was built in 2006, and it didn't show up on Maps until just recently!

    I love how at the beginning it has the warning:
    "This route has tolls.
    This route includes a ferry."

    (But doesn't mention that it includes a kayak or jet ski!)
