Google street view has revolutionized the way we see the world. But for all its technology, it sometimes captures some of the most unusual aspects of real life. An interesting and eclectic collection of these gems is available for your viewing pleasure at 9 Eyes (named after the number of cameras on the street view cars' mast).

Fragger
This puzzle game uses the familiar angle/power mechanic to throw an object, but in this case, you're throwing grenades, and you're trying to blow up the enemies. The puzzles come in how you get the grenades to the enemy soldiers. Each level adds a new trick for you to solve. The blow-'em-fun is Fragger.

Slices of Television


There are two truths about TV: 1) there are a lot of channels, and 2) they are broadcasting all the time. So, predictably, not everything is going to be Emmy-award-winning content. Especially, apparently, when it comes to the local news. Check out the gallery of adroitly-timed Photos of TV.

A Jury of Your Peers

Fuck You Yelper
I love Yelp; I use it not only to find places myself, but for checking in at places I go, too. Although, reading reviews can sometimes make you want to reach over the internet and administer some instant justice. Now you too can enjoy these quality reviews at F*ck You Yelper.

Color Tangle
There are no instructions for this puzzle game, so reap the benefits of my discovery. You have to untangle the lines; when one doesn't overlap anything, it disappears. The trick is, balls can only cross lines of the same color, and lines can only cross balls of the same color. See if you can solve them all in Color Tangle.

Paging Doctor Haiku

Dissertation Haiku
Pity the poor student slaving away for that lofty Ph.D. degree. They have to write a proper dissertation, which (as this site puts it) is "long and boring." But once published and defended, it's largely forgotten. Until now. The writers are charged with reducing their work to the succinct 5-7-5 format, entertaining you with their Dissertation Haiku.
