Car Tipping

Car tipping in Google EarthThis interesting find by GEC member ‘Joerg_M’, who posted it last June, shows a car tipped on its side in a parking lot in northwest Germany. What is it about people parking in this part of the world? It wasn’t long ago we found a car parked on the side of a building in the Netherlands. Is there a gravitational anomaly in this part of the world? One member in the forums speculated the car on its side was a new form of “cow tipping”. Maybe like “tractor tipping” as seen in the movie “Cars”?

  1. I just talked to a very nice woman from the gas station there (you can see that it is one by turning on the transportation layer). She told me that this was some sort of advertising some years ago. She also told me that her husband uses Google Earth a lot too.

    I was thinking that maybe Mr Bean had been at work there, but I guess the advertising explanation makes more “sense”…
