Hungry Google Maps users find mystery Burger King hidden on uninhabited island

A Reddit user shared a bizarre discovery in Google Maps when they found a mystery Burger King branch on a desolate island.

The screenshot shows a pin seemingly pointing to a branch of the fast-food burger giant on an uninhabited island off the coast of Oman in Western Asia.

User sevenluck77 posted the screenshot on the Google Maps sub-reddit with the caption: “A Burger King pin on this clearly desolate island off the coast of Oman”.

Amused and confused Reddit users have been responding to the strange and puzzling fast-food location.

One user said: “Google Maps data is telling some Whoppers.”

Another user joked: “Maybe a Burger King wrapper that didn’t biodegrade found itself perched there?”

A third commented: “Someone is going to land on the island and expect to get some food there.”

In other strange Google Maps discoveries, a Reddit user frantically is searching for answers after spotting a “yellow lake” in Ohio.

The screenshot of the sight shows a large stretch of water with a bright white and yellow patch towards a corner of it.

Curious, the stunned user took to the forums and asked: “Why it is yellow? A place I found on Google Maps.”

One user believes the lake is being used as a dumping ground from one of the businesses nearby.

They said: “I would love to know more about this as well. I did some googling and found that this is by Liberty Farms in Columbus, Ohio.

“It looks like there may be an industrial park nearby as well as a junkyard, but I wonder if the strip mine to the north is the culprit. There are several bodies of water in the area, but this is the only one with this happening.

“There appear to be two outlets that are dumping some sort of pollution or sediment or something into this water. This outlet in the photo is the worst. I would love to hear your take on it!”

They later added that upon more research, the nearby site is a limestone quarry.
