Our “Amazing” Earth

Various mazes and labyrinths around the world as seen via Google Earth.

Covering an area of three acres with at path length of 3.11 miles, the Pineapple Garden Maze at Dole Plantation on the Hawaiian island of Oahu was officially recognized in the Guinness Book of World Records 2001 as the World’s Largest Maze (there are several others now claiming this title, such as the Northern Ireland “peace maze”).

Speaking of mazes, if you’re an insanely patient kind of person with ridiculous amounts of time on your hands (which by the way, require the steadiness of a surgeon), then check out I’d highly recommend shutting off the music as it will drive you bonkers in short order, especially once you’ve screwed up a number of times.
