While looking up driving directions on Google Maps from Barcelona, Spain to Madrid, Spain, I clicked the option for “walking” directions out of curiosity’s sake. This is the quickest route they gave me for walking. I don’t think that’s the most efficient way to go. First of all, I can’t walk on water. Second, why not go straight over land. That appears to be a shorter route. What makes this hilarious is the statement in yellow: “Walking directions are in beta. Use caution – This route may be missing sidewalks or pedestrian paths.” Missing is, “We may send you walking over water.”
note: Although it’s not as funny to make fun of Google when you think things through, they’re probably cheating on the “walking” route and having you take a pair of ferries. At least I hope that’s what’s going on here.
