That’s brilliant. Who put it in?

No clue. It’s Google’s mapping site, so I assume someone there did it.

Same thing if you type in New York - Venice.
Pretty clever, they are…

I love it!

Sorry to spoil the fun, but BTDT – and quite recently

You are spoiling the fun. Not all of us have seen it…a lot of us have limited time to lurk around the Dope.


Really, I’m just pissed that Google refused to chart a similar route to Tel-Aviv… :stuck_out_tongue:

Anyway, this all reminds me of the purported meaning of the acronym TWA (r.i.p.?) – “Try Walking Across.” :smiley:

Google needs better routing options. I tried DC to Lisbon, Portugal, and Google sent me through the UK, France, and Spain!

I knew I should’ve taken a right turn at Albaquerque.

It’s a left turn. No wonder you’re lost.

It’s the Gulf Stream – Speed[o] Limit is higher there, so you can get across faster!

I like the way it says the trip will take “about 29 days 10 hours”.

My favorite is step 24.

After step 23, slight right at E05.

But why do they make you drive up to Boston first?

helps you stay clear of major shipping lanes.

Why do you have to swim to Le Havre? Wouldn’t it be easier and quicker to land at Plymouth or something on the west side of Great Britain and hail a cab?

Try NYC and Mars. :wink:

There’s a Mars, PA, so the funny may be missing here…

(Also a Venus, PA, and a Neptune in New Jersey. You lot have got the whole solar system down there, haven’t you?)

I like how if you try New York to Moscow, the directions eventually switch to Russian without warning, around Minsk.
