OT: Google Map Turns into "Dragon Quest" on April 1st

I still remember the April Fool's Day joke from Google that Google was starting a new phone service that uses toilet sewer pipes. I thought, "That can't be... but..."

It looks like Professor Hayakawa of Gunma University is taking it seriously now, and wondering how a Nintendo machine can use Google Map.

OT: German Spiegel reports that some Japanese media have mentioned that a new research report about earthquake dangers say that earthquakes resulting in up to 34 meter high tsunami are possible.
Too bad they don't mention the sources.

Probably this would mean that at the next big earthquake an even worse accident could happen, with the nuclear plant(s) so severely destroyed that it would not be any more controllable.

@Atomfritz And this is related to Google Map and Dragon Quest? Or are you just posting your daily sludge reports where ever even if it is Off Topic or OT?
Tsunami are certainly possible larger than 34 meters..yes its possible. Look at your Japanese history, look at Hawaii..and look at the Pacific North West and the "ring of fire".. Of course..if you live in middle of Germany..nope don't think you could get a tsunami there.

Berlin is not immune from awful waves,a stray planetoid stike of the North Sea could create Kilometre high waves.

@Atomfritz, I have the source (actually sources). Too much to sort out, so I may just post the newspaper article...

@anon at 5:15AM, he said OT.

5:15 AM, geez, what Atomfritz posts is far, far from "sludge".

And where the fuck were your criticisms when the Finn troll was posting? Maybe you enjoy reading what shows Karen Sherry Brackett has been watching on the boob tube or her Hollywood movie analogies.
