How to get to the Hollywood sign from Griffith Observatory #occupyhollywoodsign

Published: Nov 2014 by Mr Reposter

A bunch of rich asshole locals are trying to stop tourists getting to the Hollywood sign because their precious castles and pristine views are being spoiled by all the dirty plebeans and their crappy, sub-$100k cars. They are doing this by destroying directions data that google provides via google maps, so when people try to get directions to the Hollywood sign they are instead directed to the Griffith Observatory. According to this excellent article, Google and Garmin are complicit in this misdirection. Fuck you rich cunts.

Here are the directions of how to get from Griffith Observatory to the closest parking to the Hollywood sign. When you’re driving through these fucker’s neighbourhoods make sure you drive dangerously, fast and do so while blaring your horn. You know what money doesn’t buy you rich fucks? The ability to manipulate our information on public places. Try again.
