dinner in germany! Google buglet. [Jun. 6th, 2006|06:01 pm]

I have dinner tonight, but I forgot where. I check Google Calendar, where I have a Google Maps URL in the description.

The URL has a comma in it, between the address and the city, but Calendar only auto-linkifies the part of the URL up to the comma, so I click it and see:

http://maps.google.com/maps?daddr=598+2nd+St

Shit, dinner's in Germany! Hard to get there in 15 minutes.

There's a LOT of water between SF and anything in Germany. You drive a submarine?

Maybe he's gonna hit a wicked ramp. Don't hate on the ramp.

Wait, I was under the impression I was supposed to hate the ramp, rather than hating the ramper.

There's a joke involving the neologism "rizzamp" here somewhere, but I'm too weary after work to put it all together, so you fill in the blanks.

Rumor has it that a fix was checked in on Jun 17. Dunno when it'll be live.

wierd coinsidence

That address is on an american army base in the town of Landstuhl Germany. This base has the central hospital for all of the armed forces in the European/Middle Eastern theaters of operation. Basically this is where you go if you get hurt in Iraq.

Also, this is the hospital I was born in and that address is 100yards from the emergency room door of the hospital. Not that anyone cares, but I figured i'd add some details since to everyone else it is just a random address in germany, but I coincidentally have a good amount of first hand knowledge about it. Have a good dinner.

It's a small (and shrinking) world.
