Hey, but that's still not as bad as the NGA misplacing an entire reef by 8 miles.

It's not like those things open and close for business, they've been there a while...

Of course the tale of the Guardian is another caution against listening to that pretty voice coming from your GPS unit, "Turn Left Now...," so the story went. :)

Subject: shrug-l: Google Earth has done it again

I know this topic has been thrown around before about Google Earth accuracy but I thought this one was pretty good not to share.  The attached screenshot shows a business located 400 miles away in Alabama mapped just east of little ole' Port St Joe, Florida in the middle of the woods on your way to Apalachicola.  When actually entering the address for directions it thankfully puts them in the correct state and town.

"Fun fact or trivial question" while I have your attention.  Do you know which Florida city that the first constitution of the state was drafted in 1838 before becoming the 27th state in 1845?
Your answer is here: http://www.floridastateparks.org/constitutionconvention/
