Dirty back road

My current fascination is Globe Genie, an MIT joint from one Joe McMichael, which came to my attention via @ballardian. It takes you to places with Google StreetView, places such as Wattle Road, West Bromwich, England; somewhere near Wichita, with not a lineman in sight; Germantown, New Brunswick, with not a German in sight; Wellington (Kansas); the plain in Spain; Riverdale, twinned with Nowhere; un cul-de-sac near Metz; Eureka Springs, Arkansas - seven miles away from McGriddles; somewhere in England; a road in Somerset where strange things happen to cars; the Netherlands, supposedly the most densely populated country on earth; a tunnel in Norway; Antarctica.

Is anybody else reminded of the Boyle Family?
