Google Street View and the mystery of the naked-trunk man
Germany is not a big fan of Google Street View, with officials arguing that the roving camera vehicles could capture people in moments they'd rather keep private. Well, it turns out they were right. Der Spiegel found this interesting image (which has since been removed from Google) of a man doing, well, something.
Chris Matyszczyk at CNet postulates that the man might just be cleaning out his trunk, and chose to do it without clothes, as one is wont to do. This seems likely from the pile of items to the left of the car, but I'd prefer to think he's sizing up the trunk in case he has need of it for some nefarious task. Any guesses?
Yes, Google might impinge on our privacy to sit naked in our own car trunks, but I gotta say the world is a richer place ever since the serendipitous photographs have captured life in all its strange glory. Do you have a favorite Google Street View photo? So far, Hans Von Nakedinthecartrunk takes the cake.
