Google Maps Has Sense Of Humor

Google’s programmers often hide jokes and Easter eggs into their products to be later discovered by users. These jokes often show up at unexpected places. One that has been spotted in Google Maps involves the ‘Get direction’ feature. When you request direction between locations separated by enormous expanses of water, such as the Pacific Ocean between New York and Tokyo, Google Maps suggests that you kayak across it.

  1. I stumbled on this over a year ago. Guess I should have posted it then.

  2. That's brilliant! I just checked it and it really does say kayak! Well at least you would be fit after that journey. Thanks for sharing.
