Google describing a plant instead of a place

Google describing a plant instead of a place

In Brandenburg there is a place named Bärenklau. Google has totally messed up with the description of the place.

Instead of describing the place they describe the plant Heracleum (In German Bärenklau). The place has nothing to do with that plant at all.

Funny

Do Not Eat the Green Snow

Do Not Eat the Green Snow

They always warned me not to eat the yellow snow...but the green snow? Something went wrong with the image formatting process and created a strange green tint over this patch of ice. Probably a lime snow cone.

Long red line in the Antarctic

Long red line in the Antarctic

Who put a long red line on the Antarctic ice? Did an interstellar body leave a skid mark here? Is it a designated UFO landing strip? Be sure, I'm not going to go and find out!

Keep in mind that the imaging Satellites orbit several hundred miles/kilometers, higher than some Low Earth Orbit Satellites... Also if you follow the line South East, you will notice it is Not a physical structure. Your thoughts?

Wyoming landscape in Big Horn area resembles a face of a person with closed eye facing to the west. Eye to the left of placemark. Maybe Sitting Bull or George Armstrong Custer reflecting on the battle of the Little Bighorn that took place a few miles up north, back in 1876...
