Boiling Water Hacks
When Google introduced Street View, their idea was to make it easy for people to navigate unfamiliar locations. Since they introduced it in 2007, Google Street View has helped many people navigate this ever-changing world, but it has also done one other thing. It's exposed to what people (and animals) get up to when they think no one is watching.
Google Street View captured this superhero taking a much-needed nap after a full night of fighting crime. However, he's sleeping in a fetal position, which may damage his street cred and make him an easy target for villains.

This dog wasn't too happy when he saw a Google camera trying to take pictures. It decided to do something about it, and that's the last anyone heard of it. But legend has it the dog got ahold of the camera and is now preparing to release a video about what happened that day.
This cat looks like it's just woken up from a nap only to find an unwelcome visitor and it's home. Google Street View captured this very confused-looking cat hanging out in a cat sanctuary at the Largo di Torre Argentina in Rome, Italy.
A lot is going on in this picture. First, let's ignore the disappearing dog and focus on the man who seems to have woken up in the trunk of someone's car. It's unclear if someone put him there and left or if he just wondered in the somehow, only he knows.
There are very few things that are as embarrassing as falling off a bike in the middle of traffic. But what makes this worse is the timing; Google was able to get a perfect shot of this biker as they were falling.
This mannequin looks like it fell straight out of Marylin Manson's truck. Everything about it screams haunted house. There so many questions surrounding it. Who left it there? What happened to its other leg? Imagine stopping at a traffic light late at night and seeing this mannequin on the side of the road.
If you ever wondered whether or not there's life on other planets, Google Street View looks to have found the answers. It captured what looks like a metallic UFO that may or may not be from this planet. Let's just hope that it comes in peace.
Google Street View seems to have captured what looks like evidence of a parallel universe, or it may be its just two elderly twins wearing the same clothes. But it truly is a bizarre picture. After all, how many elderly twins have you seen wearing the same clothes?
There's so much going on in this picture that it's tough to figure what exactly was happening. There's a ballerina, four bystanders, and a man sleeping on the side of the road. My best guess is that they acted out a very unusual broadway scene before Google decided to interrupt them.
This image looks like the cops were in the middle of breaking up a fight. But this picture raises many questions, like why is that woman sitting in a desk chair? Is she working, or did she just want front row seats to the action?
Google Street View caught these young men fleeing the scene of what appears a crime. But what's even more bizarre is that they are holding on to cardboard boxes. So it's either they stole them or were just trying to get as far away as possible.
Google Street View spotted this giant turtle taking a shortcut on the grass in his skimobile while wearing a safety helmet. It is proving once again that you're never too big to wear a helmet or ride a skimobile.
This is one of the strangest pictures ever to be taken on Google. Not only is the man wearing a blue wrestling mask, but he's also riding a dog like it's a racehorse. The poor dog looks like it has been through better days. Hopefully, PETA sees this photo.
Artist Jon Rafman started a photo project called The Nine Eyes of Google Street View, where he aimed to collect beautiful and unusual images captured by Google. He named the project after the nine lenses mounted on a Google Street View car. And this is one of the pictures in that collection.
This man didn't take kindly to being under surveillance. He looks to have thrown an object at the Google camera. Luckily, he has a lousy aim; otherwise, we wouldn't be able to show you this bizarre photo.

Google Street View caught these people trying to hide a body in the back of their truck. The Google camera had taken photos of people who looked to be committing crimes, but then it turned out to be nothing. So are these people hiding a body, or are they just giving their pass-out friend a ride?
The last thing anyone on Google Street View was expecting to see was a horse eating a banana while having tea with a flamingo. The Google camera took this picture of the man with a horse head sitting on the road's side in Canada.
Someone decided to wrap mannequins in duct-tape and throw them in the dumpster. Or at least we hope those are mannequins; one of them looks too perfectly formed to be a mannequin. Which means only one thing… It's a robot.

At first glance, this looks like a typical picture of a woman passing by. But if you take a closer look at the car that's parked on the side of the road, you'll notice that it looks like its fading away. It's hard to tell if that car is really disappearing or just a cool optical illusion.

Over the last 13 years, Google Street View has managed to capture people in their natural habitat doing bizarre things that they wouldn't normally do in public.
