Two theories: Goggle is using face recognition software that is as accurate as Google translate, or someone at Google may have a sense of humour.
Weirdly enough, I once noticed in a Cheater’s episode they blurred out hte faces of some ducks swimming on the lake behind the loving couple. MAybe this is a new media practice we are unaware of?
That’s not a horse, that’s Rosie O’Donnell!!!!
You guys are insensitive. Give Rosie a break for once.
Hypothetical question: What if Google caught a filmstar, and then blurs his or her face. Is Google messing with the the law in the US? I mean, filmstars assiduously guard their public image.
Now what happens if Google captures Mickey Mouse? I’m sure that they have a pic of Mickey somewhere. What if Mickey isn’t blurred? Do the MouseCorp come after Google for breach of copyright? Or even if Mickey is blurred, can MouseCorp extract cash?
Too much Beef-a-Reeno.
A horse walks into a Google map. Why the long face?
And, @JeffV, no, no, and no. None of those are in any way applicable.
This is even stranger, Google has prostitutes on display in its street view. Safe for Work.
Here’s the link: http://www.gofrostfire.com/acatalog/Prostitutes_On_Google_Maps_Street_View_.html
Very funny! Have added this one to the Google Street View Gallery:
I’ve seen the prostitutes before (this is the first time on Google street view though Nyuk nyuk), but why would they blank out a horse face and not other people on the street?
These posts where there’s no information are vexing for my inquiring mind.
