back to article Buttocks, thongs, and bullsh*t: Street Viewers cop an eyeful

According to an illuminating report yesterday, Google's new Street View might, if deployed across Europe, provoke a flurry of litigation from unfortunates caught in compromising positions by the facility's all-seeing eye. Well, we haven't yet seen any snaps of couples going at it like jackrabbits in New York doorways, or nude …

    The correct term for an exposed thong...

    ... is "whale tail"

    Delighted!

    I think this is uber funny! It's made my day. Forget reality t.v, the world will be hooked on their streets, watching their neighbours..

    hmm maybe this is not such a great idea after all.

    No more hunting for helicopters

    Yes we are all doing it now... no more looking for blackhawk helicopters we are looking for the best whale tail on the block

    OTOH, Google Earth can't get my address right

    A friend sent me a link to my house. Good thing he didn't try driving there, because they have the wrong house.

    Another Bogus Public Urination photo

    If you track forward and back along the street and pan toward the guy you can see he's doing something with a bicycle and takes something (possibly a phone) out of his pocket. He's not upright long enough to be urinating. An earlier pic in S.F. looks like it is actually a woman using a mirror or an ipod when you track up and down the street and pan toward them. It seems that any picture of a person facing away from camera who is alone and could be a man is assumed to be a guy urinating in public.

    Whale Tail

    The only correct usage of the term whale tail is when describing the rear spoilers of Sierra/Escort Cosworths, or early mental Porsche engine covers/spoilers.

    Or whales feet, for that matter.

    There is a similar phot-mapping system at the council I work at, I did try to find embarressing snaps, but alas, nothing.

    I was gutted.

    Re: Whale Tail

    The correct term for these rear spoilers is "pram handles"

    He has a different type of leak

    If you go down the street a bit you can see he's fixing a puncture on his bike.

    Look at the posture before jumping to conclusions

    From the position of his arms, I'd immediately guess his hands were in front of his belly - not "down below".
