When Google began taking pictures of the entire planet, they must have known that they would snap a few oddities. Try as we might, we can't stop laughing at a few of them. There's also some real beauty to be found, some amazement and a whole lot of random. Come and take an odd international tour with us.
If you're keen, well, here are some of the notable ones:
What is going on here is quite unfathomable. But seemingly, something fishy I'd guess. I have never seen a fish in someone's roof before, but Google did.
You may think you can sneak in when no one is home, but beware the Google Street Cars bearing cameras. The whole world might be watching. Fail.
To relax some people go to the pub. Some garden. Some like to read. This chap likes his sitting on the roof.
This mountain range in Canada looks uncannily like a human face.
You may think your roof is a private place to tan your, erm, private parts. Newsflash: it's not.
You shouldn't pee behind your car when the Google Street View car drives past either.
This is even how The Stig dresses when he's in meetings.
We seem to have 9 UFOs that Google Street View managed to find. Erm... were they driving around Area 51?
This was a major hit on Valentine's Day, surprisingly enough. The island, called Galesnjak, is off the Croatian coast.
The first Google Earth alphabet was put together by Rhett Dashwood, an Australian designer. Evidently there is not much to do when you live in a giant desert.
