Street View Captures Man on the Throne

Google have sportingly removed a Street View image that caught an Australian man sitting on the toilet. The Street View camera caught the man as he was sitting in his outhouse in Port Melbourne, Victoria.

Anyone who uses an outside toilet with the door wide open is hardly likely to be concerned with privacy issues, I therefore assume Google removed the image to protect the delicacies of other users of Google Maps.

The Sydney Morning Herald: "private activities being captured for public view". Since urinating in public is a misdemeanor in any country i know it can hardly be called a private activity when made public!

In a way this might deter people from urinating or defecating in public, which is a good thing... not just the smell is pretty annoying...
