Has Google Maps Been Hacked?
Looking for directions to a local restaurant, I went to Google Maps. The first step I got was:
1. Head south on N Hamlin Ave toward Ulica imienia Grzegorza Brzęszczyszczykiewicza.
Easy for them to say!
I went to Google Translate, and learned that Ulica imienia in Polish is "street name." Grzegorza Brzęszczyszczykiewicza means "Gregory Brzęszczyszczykiewicza."
Haven't a clue where that street is, so I googled it and the only link was a low-class social web site (is there any other kind?), where expressions of racism are acceptable. Interesting.
