The Miracle of Birth on Google Street View

Well, this is certainly more life affirming than your usual dudes with guns/drug dealers/dead people Google Street View fare. Yup, that's the youngest citizen of Wilmersdorf, Germany, captured moments after birth by goodole 9-eyes. Update: Probably not a real baby.

Click the shot above to see the baby in its full, fresh-out-of-the-womb glory.

Unfortunately Google's replaced the Street View birth with a different set of photographs, but you can see the spot where it happened right here. OK, sure, there's always the chance that this is the work of some German improv troupe, but who wants to go through life thinking like that? In any event, it's a good thing 37 Hubertusallee didn't elect to have their house blurred into oblivion like some other German homeowners.

Update: Boooo. Commenter dj-hq writes that this is probably not a real baby:

I am German and have to tell you it's a fake. It has been reported in German television and in different German news sources (one of them: [www.pcgames.de] )

There is a hospital right across the street and they have no knowledge of a birth right in front of their door.
In the house is also an advertising agency that has no knowledge of a birth in front of their house.

Or maybe it was just the advertising agency in the first place?

The Miracle of Birth on Google Street View

Will this child grow up knowing its true identity as the Street View Baby? I hope so. It's like being the Chosen One or Harry Potter or something. Maybe someday he or she will grow up to become a wizard and vanquish Eric Schmidt. [Classicfun.Ws]
