After a crash on Peña Boulevard, a road leading to Denver International Airport, the navigation app suggested taking a detour to save time. The problem is that the detour lead the drivers straight into a muddy field.

The alternate route took these vehicles down a dirt road, which had become even messier because of the prior rain. Cars started to slide around, some got stuck, which in turn meant that the vehicles behind them also had no way out.

“So I pulled out my Google Maps to see if there is a better way to go, and it told me to take the next exit and it would be about half the time,” said Connie Monsees, one of the unfortunate drivers who was on the way to pick up her husband at the airport.

“I’m following this line of cars and my thought was, ‘Well, there’s so many other people going, it must be OK,’ ” Monsees told ABC. “So I went ahead … but the thing was, it wasn’t like you could choose to make a U-turn.”

A spokesperson for Google said, “We take many factors into account when determining driving routes, including the size of the road and the directness of the route. While we always work to provide the best directions, issues can arise due to unforeseen circumstances, such as when weather conditions affect the quality of roads. We encourage all drivers to follow local laws, stay attentive, and use their best judgment while driving.”

Why would I stay attentive and use my best judgment when I can just blindly do whatever the phones tells me?

Have you eaten a whole medium-sized bird on Christmas? Has the holiday festive food left you fat and constipated? Taking a walk might help you get the bowels moving again. A 22,077 km walk from Magadan, Russia to Cape Town, South Africa.

Someone with way too much time on their hands at has been playing with Google Maps and found that the longest possible walk on this planet is between Magadan and Cape Town. The problem is it takes you through some of the most dangerous regions of the world including South Sudan and Syria. But if you managed to eat 2 kg of meat in one sitting, I´m sure you can handle a few terrorists who decapitate pedestrians for fun. Here is the Google Maps link to help you plan and a helpful guide to Magadan from a South African who took the walk back in 2005 after a particularly big Christmas dinner.
