Streetview

Posted By on Mon, Aug 11, 2008 at 12:20 PM

Ah, technology. By now, you've probably seen (and maybe been a little creeped out by) the Google Streetview maps of central Arkansas, which allow the viewer to take a digital walk down virtually every street in the area.

The Streetview maps are made with a special camera car that has a rotating imager on the roof (judging from certain landmarks, we've ascertained the cars most likely came through Little Rock/North Little Rock sometime last summer). Every once in awhile, they manage to catch something a little weird... as in this shot from Eagle Point Drive in Sherwood.

Remember, friends: your day could always be worse.
