I love you, Google Maps

So, you know how when you do an LJ entry there's that field off to the right labeled "location"? And you know how it becomes a clickable link to Google Earth once you post your entry? Check out what happens when you put "Hogwarts" in as your location :)

Except then I spent an hour typing in a bunch more fictional locations, to see if there were any other fun ones. I'm such a nerd...

Did it not take you to Google Maps with a little pushpin on Platform 9-3/4? Like this?

Hmmm ... I had the same reaction as Toby. When I clicked, it took me to a map of Orlando, Fl, with a pushpin on the Wizarding World of Harry Potter theme park. :( A map of Platform 9 3/4 would be much more fun.

Unrelated: OMG SO MUCH ICON LOVE!

That's pretty funny, seeing as I was cursing Googlemaps the other day on twitter whilst going walking around my own neighbourhood.

JFC, I swear GoogleMaps is about as accurate as the USS Reliant's sat nav.
