There have been several stories recently about people who take their GPS directions ahead of common sense. The latest I read was about someone who drove into a canal, simply because the direction finder said “turn left, now.” However, I have always believed that Google maps are accurate.
It appears they are a little too accurate. Someone was wondering what would happen if you planned a trip from Chicago to London.
Part of the resulting itinerary shows that Google not only has a sense of humor but is either very interested in physical fitness, or only wants Olympic swimmers to use their directions.
To prove to all the doubters that this is real … Here is the link to the actual itinerary. (Just make sure to print the directions on waterproof paper!)
