George Costanza 2.0

This article by Lifehacker tells about a new web service that lets you know the nearest restroom by a Google Maps extension. It reminds me of an episode of Seinfeld, where George claims he knows the cleanest bathroom anywhere in the city. Jerry quizzes him on several intersections, and George replies with the names of some nice office towers or clean public restrooms near them. If anybody's seen the pilot episode, where George quits his job at a real estate firm over a feud with his boss, you know that the feud was over the use of the boss' personal restroom. Anyway, we can all have our personal George on our iPhones. Goody!
