I don’t want to spoil the surprise, but the Google treasure hunt available on Google Maps sounds like an elaborate April Fool’s joke. I guess we won’t know for sure until later today.
The map is a digitalized version of Captain Kidd’s 315-year-old treasure map, which was found last year. With the help from online users on the map, Google hopes to locate the treasure.
Personally I think this sounds too badass to be a real life expedition; a Google treasure hunt that has everyday people deciphering an ancient treasure map? I’m not saying that you shouldn’t participate and be part of the magic—I’m just saying you should be as suspicious as you would over a pirate’s validity if he didn’t have an eye patch and wooden leg.
