Fancy a Swim Accross the Pacific Ocean?

I logged into Facebook this morning (as you do), scrolled down my news feed and came across this:

1: Open Google Maps (directions)
2: Type China as your starting point
3: Type Taiwan as your destination.
4: Read step 48

Curiousity kills the cat, as they say, so I, being as obedient as I am, followed the steps. Let's just say it kick-started my day with a smile....Epic fail or what!

As exciting (not to mention dangerous and exhausting!) as swimming across the Pacific Ocean sounds, I can't swim for toffee so disappointingly my journey would end on step 47.

I also noticed that the travel method is by car. So erm, how how do you actually swim with your car? This conjured up hilarious images of a poor traveller desperately trying to get to the other side with a primitive looking rope around their waist attached to their vehicle. Le sigh.

All I can say is thank goodness for the invention of ferryboats and airplanes.
