That is pretty neat. I too haven't noticed that before either. But no matter how you look at it on that map, Sweden looks so superior to Norway. :D

pwned. On a related note, take a look at how sweden and Finland look without Norway on the EU coin. Lets just say that it further promotes the idea of swedes being dickheads. Besides, Norway is shaped like an el-gitar.

Hey, Ive never seen that before, looks handy :thumbsup:

I just found this thing out from my friend, its called Google Fight (http://www.googlefight.com), its a site in which you enter in two searches, (i.e ice cream and candy) then it does a repetitive loading sequence and displays how many times both keywords/phrases have been searched on google.

It goes along well if you try and see if you can get a google results page that only displays 1 entry. Then you copy what you searched and put in into Google Fight and you see if anybody else has searched it. :p

That's just because... Damned swedes come here, speaking their odd language, take our men(For what I care, they can loot all they want on that section) and beer and Koskenkorva and go back to their queer flats... If I would get a huge saw. I would cut sweden off and place it in the middle of the White House so the tourists can say: "Hey, that's a huge skyscraper" and the terrorists can try and bomb it while Swedes are trying to climb down without getting pwned with my Über-1337 sniper skillz...

And no, I don't hate Swedish people...

ay of you weird scandinavian lot have the hellboy director's cut? I have a question...

There are lots of cool hacks for them around, such as:
* Weather and web cams
* Walking distances
* WiFi hotspots
* Iraq war casualties
* Movie showing times
* Cheap gas
* Chicago Crime
* Vehicular traffic conditions
* NYC subway stations and apartment listings
* Boston MBTA
* Chicago Transit Authority
* Craigslistings

Yeah, this is still waaay off topic. Get on track or the thread is done.

Google feature is nice, but I don't normally trust net maps. :o

Ya, I second that.

I ahve had way too many bad experience with MapQuest and all those goofy companies.

Luckily my dad's car has on-board navigation so we can just type in the adress and this sexy sounding voice tells us what to do. Is that considered dominatrix???:confused:

Does it spank you and ask you to lick it's dirty spot? If not, then no.


Anyway, Googlemaps is pretty neat.

Google Maps isn't exactly new, it's been around for a while, as Google Local has.

Here are some landmarks I was able to find using Google Maps.

Reichtag (http://maps.google.com/maps?ll=52.517234,13.377249&spn=0.004839,0.007918&t=k&hl=en)
