Overheard In Google Maps

Overheard In New York is a site that lists snippets of conversation heard on the streets of New York. Mihai Parparita, from Google Reader team, mashed Overheard with Google Maps and Google Reader to create Overplot. Search for a term and find funny conversations on the map. I searched for Google and I found this:

"Doctor guy: Okay, we have the chest x-ray and it explains what's going on. See this lesion? It is pretty impressive.
Patient lady: "Impresssive"? Is that a medical term? Am I gonna have to google that, too?"

And another funny conversation:
"Dad to crying son: Are you crying cause you're really hurt, or are you crying cause you're a baby?"
