Random Street View Challenge

Post by Fat Cat »

1. A mysterious offer is made.

2. $5,000,000 is yours if...

3. You commit to live for 10 years wherever this takes you:

4. https://randomstreetview.com/

I, for one, will have to work hard to find something to spend my cool millions on as I bask in the sun on the highway from Banting to Morib, south of Kuala Lumpur.

Who's down to take the challenge?

She's gonna be spending her millions on some oily Greek name Kyrios while you squat in the Finnish fucking woods.

Some back road in a Barrio in Valparaiso, Chile. I would of course build a mansion and enlist the locals into my Army and throw a coup.

Apparently it's a 466 acre village with 266 people as of 2010.

Just my style. I live on a wooded acre surrounded by 1+ acre lots now and see coyotes more than my neighbors.

A highway in Switzerland 5 minutes from the French border. Second try, a highway 5 min from the southern coast of South Africa. Gonna need a yurt.
One of the downsides of the Internet is that it allows like-minded people to form communities, and sometimes those communities are stupid.

Ya my second try was a sweet little farm near Nelson, North Island, New Zealand, but as in life, no second chances. Kuala Lumpur or fuck your mother.

I got a rustic backwoods spot in rural Hungary. Looks so good I should move there anyway.

I wish someone had drilled this into me when I was a kid. I was criticized for everything but no one ever explained that you get one chance. Fail and it will destroy you and you'll regret it for the rest of your days.

We used to play a random street view challenge at my old workplace here in Australia. You had to drop the little man on a random street anywhere in the USA and if you landed in view of a McDonald’s or any fast food place, you won.

It was surprisingly hard
