Google Street View Shoots the Same Woman 43 Times

samzenpus posted more than 4 years ago | from the get-your-face-out-there dept.

Google 106

Geoffrey.landis writes "Terry Southgate discovered that his wife Wendy appears on the Google Street View of his neighborhood not once or twice but a whopping 43 times. From the article: 'It seems as if the Street View car simply followed the same route as Wendy and Trixie. However, Wendy was a little suspicious that the car was doing something on the "tricksie" side. Several of the Street View shots show Wendy looking with some concern towards the car that was, well, to put it politely, crawling along the curb. "I didn't know what it was doing. It was just driving round very, very slowly," Wendy told the Sun.' The next best thing to being a movie star — a Street View star!"

This Gang Warfare Must Stop (5, Funny)

Google Street View Shoots the Same Woman 43 Times

I knew that gang violence had gotten bad in some parts of the world but now even Google vans have become roving death squads spewing bullets. What? Was there a Bing van behind her or something? Forty three shots! How many clips is that and will they be holding Brin and Page accountable?

Depends on the handgun but probably 4 clips. Then again it was probably 2 if they used an AR-17 but it could have just been 1 if Google paid for the 100 round mag...

I agree that things must be bad now that Google feels the need to take out Bring users in the middle of the day. What if children had been near by!

Consider that it's vehicle based, and they drive an awful lot. To get that much shooting done, they're using a belt fed gun. Magazines are for portability. Belts are for throwing lots of ammunition down range. :)

Well considering how much money Google has I'm surprised they haven't upgraded their van's to use laser turrets that run off small but powerful nuclear batteries...

I had a Calico M-100 with a hundred round clip but it was .22LR. They also made 9mm but that only went up to 50 round.

Re:This Gang Warfare Must Stop (1)

sv_libertarian (1317837) | more than 4 years ago | (#31993234)

They aren't "clips" they are magazines. Clips hold rounds of ammunition for insertion into a magazine. AR-17? You mean AR-15, right, I find it highly unlikely you are familiar with the very rare AR-17 shotgun, but I could be wrong. In this context though, I doubt it. If you are wondering how many MAGAZINES of ammo used in a handgun would be 43 rounds, 3 would be the most likely, assuming a regular 9mm handgun. Mag capacity varies depending on the gun and caliber of ammo used. If one uses a handgun based on a rifle, like an AK-47 pistol, or an AR-15 pistol, there are 75 round and larger drums available; so it's largely a question of how much gun geekery do you want to get into?

Actually most modern handguns are loaded using magazines. There is an easy way to differentiate between clips and magazines, sadly people, especially the media are most often mistaken. I'm not guaranteeing this method of differentiation has a 100% accuracy, but: If it holds bullets and is used to slide the bullets into the weapon (into it's magazine well). It's a clip. If it hold bullets and is inserted into the weapon, it's a magazine. Some people might say, they both hold bullets, what does it matter? I reply to that with this: RAM, Hard Disk Drives, they both have GB's, what does it matter?

What about En-Bloc clips for the M1 Garand? Holds a bunch of cartridges (and seriously, you can't be all pedantic about clip vs magazine and then get the cartridge/bullet thing wrong :) ), slides into the gun. Thoughts?

I've seen it defined (IMHO better) thus:

Clips hold rounds, but typically at least a part of each round protrudes from the clip;
Magazines encase rounds.

Jeremy Reimer and his friends Jay Little also had their websites removed entirely from CrystalTech.com and from petitiononline.com also, because of their making death threats to APK just because APK showed that Exchange Server stalls due to memory fragmentation are stopped when a memory optimization program is used (microsoft's own called clearmem.exe) after Jay Little, whom Jeremy Reimer brought in because Reimer doesn't even have a degree or years to decades of professional hands-on experience in the trenches doing computer work, failed in stating verbatim "I am an Exchange Expert" and when Jay Little saw what APK put up, he tried to harass APK by nitpicking his posts at NTCompatible.com also, where Little stalked APK there and failed on issues regarding ramdisks/ssd and also Windows own error codes/crash codes which got Jay Little kicked from NTCompatible.com as it did on Channel 9 at Microsoft also?

That's easy. Everyone knows Big Brother is there for their own protection. He sees all to make sure we're safe. we all trust Big Brother to protect us. Well, unless Big Brother sees we did something he didn't like, then there's nowhere to hide.

    Google, on the other hand, is just invading our privacy by taking pictures.

    Photography is illegal, or so I was told when I was taking photographs from a public road. It's amazing how quick you can get the sheriffs department and Homeland Security on you for just having a camera in the wrong place. Apparently you can request a photography pass, but you have to apply for it in advance, and the request won't be granted.

    Now I've opted for photography with a DSLR mounted on a telescope. It's obvious when I'm taking photos from 100 feet away, but less obvious when I'm taking the same photo from a few miles away. :)

Re:Blocked streets? (1)

hedwards (940851) | more than 4 years ago | (#31990320)

It's not illegal, if they told you that they were either misinformed or lying. There is no reasonable expectation of privacy, if it can be seen from public space, it's unlikely to be considered private by legal definitions. But IANAL so YMMV.

Re:Blocked streets? (1)

networkBoy (774728) | more than 4 years ago | (#31991866)

However, arguing with a mall rentacop over the finer points of law is downright fun. After the real cops arrive then you get all polite and stuff (and do what they say, because they have handcuffs, guns, and Miranda cards, and while in theory you will get your property (camera) back, in reality this is not always the case).

Re:Blocked streets? (1)

JWSmythe (446288) | more than 4 years ago | (#31993208)

    Well, I wouldn't say illegal, but it can be downright unhealthy. I've never been on the unhealthy side of a taser, CS gas, nor pepper spray, but I've experienced them as parts of various trainings. Well, only the direct contact stun gun, not the projectile version. None were very pleasant.

    I don't particularly like the idea of spending extensive time with a LEO where they're trying to find any reason to take me in. "Have you been drinking" is never best responded with "I haven't, but you sure look drunk."

Re:Blocked streets? (1)

sowth (748135) | more than 4 years ago | (#31992114)

It is illegal when they claim it is against "national security" to take pictures. "National security" is a vague enough concept that they can claim just about anything is in the interest of "national security."

Re:Blocked streets? (1)

JWSmythe (446288) | more than 4 years ago | (#31992956)

That's the difference between what law enforcement says, and what the real law says. When a uniformed DHS officer is standing in front of you saying that you're endangering national security you have two choices. You can say "Sorry sir, I won't take any pictures and I will be leaving now.", or you can argue the point, end up in handcuffs and be taken away to jail so your lawyer can (hopefully) argue that there was nothing illegal about doing it. When the representative of the government says "It was for national security issues, which cannot be discussed without everyone having the necessary security clearance, and even then it's on a need to know basis. I therefore cannot disclose the reasons for it. Suffice it to say he was intentionally endangering national security."

    We all have to know when is a good time to fight, and when is a time to gracefully step away from a freedom endangering situation. I'm sure there will be better incidents to fight against. In my situation, since there were no witnesses other than myself, a friend, DHS and SO, if I disappeared under the guise of national security, no one would ever know where I went or why.

    If you're interested, these are the photos that weren't shot [flickr.com] .

    Why do I hear silent black helicopters over my house, and what's that black van doing parked out front?

Yeah. That’s what happened. Nobody followed anybody, their routes just happened to intersect a few times.

I knew it was kind of silly anyway, because Google street view is always going to take half a dozen pictures of the same thing as it drives down the street. 43 seems much, but if it passed her a few times it’s not surprising.

For those interested, it starts with the Street view car approaching her, first sighting her here [google.com] and driving past, turning onto Cooks Rd. (there’s one step at which she isn’t in the picture because it was filmed when the car returned to film the rest of Cross St.), and she’s still visible from a good distance down Cooks. Then the car turned off to other streets and when it returned to film more of Cooks Rd, there she was [google.com] ; the car turned onto Thedwastre Close and she’s barely still visible [google.com] but once again the street view car hits some side streets and when it drives past she’s caught up to it again [google.com] .

I wasn’t counting, and I don’t really care to look through the whole neighbourhood to find out whether she ran into the car a few more times...

I see your signature Clone, however, isn't Jeremy Reimer the guy who had parts of his website removed for libelling APK by his hosting provider and Reimer was caught email harassing APK by his ISP, Shaw of Canada, when Shaw put Reimer on a tracking ticket for it (which Reimer promptly ceased his email harassment of APK once he was aware of that happening), and arstechnica strangely no longer puts up articles by the blatantly unqualified Jeremy Reimer? Jeremy Reimer and his friends Jay Little also had their websites removed entirely from CrystalTech.com and from petitiononline.com also, because of their making death threats to APK just because APK showed that Exchange Server stalls due to memory fragmentation are stopped when a memory optimization program is used (microsoft's own called clearmem.exe) after Jay Little, whom Jeremy Reimer brought in because Reimer doesn't even have a degree or years to decades of professional hands-on experience in the trenches doing computer work, failed in stating verbatim "I am an Exchange Expert" and when Jay Little saw what APK put up, he tried to harass APK by nitpicking his posts at NTCompatible.com also, where Little stalked APK there and failed on issues regarding ramdisks/ssd and also Windows own error codes/crash codes which got Jay Little kicked from NTCompatible.com as it did on Channel 9 at Microsoft also? Seems that was what happened at Windows IT Pro here http://windowsitpro.com/article/articleid/41095/the-memory-optimization-hoax.html [windowsitpro.com] which anyone can read. So much for your libelling others Clone. You can't even get that right and you certainly like lies and libel, which are against the law in the USA and in other nations also.

Ahem: Bullshit - Clone, I noted that you also called APK, the person you refer to in your signature here, a "spyware maker" http://slashdot.org/comments.pl?sid=1591778&cid=31736454 [slashdot.org] , but he noted that Nir Sofer and Dr. Mark Russinovich have also had many of their wares classified falsely as spywares too, and that he took CA's 21 point test and his app did not violate a single point of their test and they downrated his app to "zero threat levels" because of this. APK also put up the very first guide to securing Windows back in 1998 which was highly rated at Neowin in 2001 and grew into the most viewed and most effective guide for securing Windows NT Operating Systems out there currently at 350,000 views strong and being made a sticky pinned thread, an essential guide, or being the most viewed and being usually rated 5 of 5 stars by readers of his security guide for Windows such as here http://www.tcmagazine.com/forums/index.php?s=f94b12f3d43b3b9446bed90155910842&showtopic=2662 [tcmagazine.com] .

You are a scumbag libelling little weasel clone, and now everyone will know how much so, after reading this reply. Just because you're a loser that doesn't have a job and because you've never done a thing in your life that's of service to others, doesn't give you the right to libel others who have, clone.

Actually went to the address provided by the article.

96 Cross Street, Mid Suffolk, England, United Kingdom

She's barely in the initial panorama. But she's out ahead of the location of the Google Van. You have to "step" forward several times before anything other than her back is visible.

She just happened to be slowly walking her dog on the day that the Google van drove by.

clone53421 (1310749) | more than 4 years ago | (#31994672)

It passed her by, but it diverted off on some side streets and she caught up to it a few more times as it drove around. So she does appear quite a few times.

Wow, this must have really freaked her out. Not only the whole follow-her-around thing (which is just creepy enough to be hilarious), but imagine if she did a search and found her own likeness time after time.

This should be done more often as a very excellent prank. Bonus points if you catch someone doing something embarrassing.

While it's possible that the photographing vehicle was "stalking" her, I find it just as likely that she was walking alongside the vehicle. Otherwise, how could you explain that this poor old lady happened to be in 43 different locations that the vehicle wanted to record?? 43 pics of the front of her house? Unlikely.

I guess if you count all the photos at each location, you might get 43, but I can see the lady and her dog from only 5 locations.
