Where In Hawaii is Edward Sugimoto? - February 24, 2010

February 24th, 2010

rayboyjr has been on a mean tear as of late yo. Last week bruddah made it 7 weeks in a row with his 16th correct WIH guess! Crazy! Takeshi also earned his lucky 13th point and bB got on the board with his 0.5 point "Waikiki" guess. Woo hoo! Please help me congratulate all of these fellas.

This week, we've got a brain-teaser for y'all! Since the "main" image can be just about anywhere, I've sprinkled in a 0.1 second animation to help a brutha/sistah out. If the electrodes in your brain can catch up with what your eyes see, the points could very well be yours this week! 🙂

Here's how we'll do...:

Points L'Dat!:
* General Location: 1 point
* Cross Streets: 1/2 point each (3-5 possible)

Bonus Kine:
* Google Maps Street View link pointing at this location: 2 points
(e.g. http://maps.google.com/maps?f=q&source=s_q&hl=en&geocode=&q=1296+S.+Beretania+St.,+Honolulu,+HI+96814&sll=21.312405,-157.748566&sspn=0.460574,0.614548&ie=UTF8&hq=&hnear=1296+S+Beretania+St,+Honolulu,+Hawaii+96814&layer=c&cbll=21.300921,-157.841404&panoid=byKptoP8_mIjKCg_610BKA&cbp=12,61.58,,0,6.71&ll=21.30088,-157.841306&spn=0,359.990398&z=17 for our St-Germaine's Bakery one from a couple of weeks ago).

How to get Street View (in 5 easy steps 😛 ):
1) Find location on Google Maps
2) Zoom all the way in OR drag the man at the top of the zoom bar (orange guy on the left side) onto the street near your location.
3) Drag/navigate/zoom to show location
4) Click on "Link" on top right of image and copy URL
5) Win points! 🙂
