Lost Ladder on Google’s Roof

I was browsing the new high resolution data for Google’s headquarters in California and noticed someone left a ladder on their roof! I thought this was pretty amusing so I posted a placemark in the GE Community forums. Check out the ladder for yourself. 🙂
It turns out I was one of several who posted about the ladder in the forums. Some people added amusing thoughts like: “How do you find a lost ladder at Google? Do a search in Google Earth!” or “Evidence of a Google Crime Scene”. Add your own picture title in the comments here for more fun.

  2. Thanks for that african market point!
    but about ladder, I can see nothin’.
    I suppose they found that!

  3. My google earth has changed. I have just got a new Dell computer and when I zoom in the picture is sad not as good as it used to be. It also is rubish to start with then slowly opens very poor. I used to have some fun with it at the moment it not worth using. I have unenstalled it a few times and I can not seam to get back to what I used to have. Any ideas.?
