    all good answers

  6. Ben Says:

    These are all clearly photoshopped. I’ve seen a few shops in my day and i can tell because the pixels just don’t match up.

  7. freekill Says:

    FREEKILL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  8. joe Says:

    hey ben, the pixels have to do with the camera and distance, this is a real street, i know because im a shopper.

  9. Andrea Says:

    This is lame.I live in San Francisco, California, you should look it up if you want to actually see a shit load of steep streets.

  10. Giorgis Says:

    No chance, I lived in Greece and there are streets in Athens you could never drive a car onto, as you cab here. The road surface is ribbed so you walk down it

  11. alex Says:

    ah in biggin hill, kent, england
    there is one steaper u CANNOT drive up it

  12. Anne Says:

    Isn’t Canton Avenue in Pittsburgh technically the steepest street?

  13. ManlyJack Says:

    Hmm, Posted with no recognition of where in the world this street is?
    Baldwin St is in Dunedin as you may have seen on the sign, is the second largest city in the South Island of New Zealand.
    At the top of this hill is a Drinking fountain so you can get a much needed drink after making your ascent to the top.
    As for Giorgis’s Comment, “The road surface is ribbed so you walk down it”
    that is not a street, that is a big staircase.

  14. Aaron Says:

    You have never been to the valleys of wales there is probably about 20-30 streets that are steeper.

  15. DOM Says:

    I hate people who say that photos on the internet are ‘clearly photoshopped’ so go and kill yourself ben its still interesting!

  16. dethwhorse Says:

  17. Sean Says:

    Not a fake, buddy.

  19. joe Says:

    I hate all of you. Ben knows it’s real you retards. People just say it’s photoshopped to see if you’ll get mad or try to prove it’s not.

  20. Anonymous Says:

    This is clearly photoshopped.

    1. there’s obviously excessive cloning, as you can see by the identical repeating textures in #3, #4, and #7
    2. Blatant lighting inconsistencies.
    3. Shadows present without anything to cast a shadow in pic 6 and 9

    photoshopping doesn’t mean the whole image is fake, in this circumstance it just means certain parts of the picture have been modified to give it the appearance of being steeper than it actually is.

    if you check the world record this isn’t the steepest street so there’s your proof right here.

    this. is. photoshopped!

  21. Glenn Says:

    People who post to say its shopped are not witty or funny there just worthless sinking turds in the toilet bowl of humanity.

    So many self-proclaiming experts claiming this to be photoshopped…

    Well, I have been there. And it is exactly as steep as the picture show. NO photoshopping there! Driving down this street is a scary experience. I can’t say if this is truly the steepest street in the world, but the sign is sure there at the bottom, and I believe that better that you guys

  23. Alice Says:

    Ha! You idiots crack me up with your “its so definitely photoshopped” crap. I live 5 minutes walk from this street, tourists come there all the time, and it’s not bloody fake. It was named the worlds steepest street in the guiness book of world records until a few years ago, when a street in California apparently took the title. But it’s still more famous, so there!

  24. Jessta Says:

    @Anonymous
    Dude, this isnt photoshopped, its a street in NZ, and i have run up it. Twice. Tell my calves that its photoshopped.

  25. fdjsaflkj Says:

    its not even that steep i know a place in dc way steeper!!

  26. no. Says:

    @Ben
    you’re a fucking idiot.

  27. HeadOfPins Says:

    ….and then I the whole flashlight.

  28. Anon Says:

    You people don’t spend nearly enough time on the internet. The it’s clearly shopped is a inside joke with its roots in the #chan boards (4chan 7chan) were people post pictures that are often photoshopped, it’s really a very old joke, no one with any taste does it any more.

    OK everyone, get this: Huge Slip-n-Slide!

    That would be so awesome.

    ok who cares who things these images are photoshopped. I love the slip-n-slide idea…. if you are at the street at the right time you can buy a Jaffa race ticket and watch them race jaffas down the hill for a prize ( http://www.chocolatecarnival.co.nz/Home/CadburyJaffaRace/tabid/815/language/en-US/Default.aspx )

  31. Penny Ann Says:

    You don’t need wet plastic for this. Just get as many old bed spreads and blankets as you can carry and place them end-to-end down the hill and lie down in your bathing suit. As long as you’re not sweating your bare skin will be smooth enough to let you gradually creep down the hill. I used to sunbathe on a steep roof and if the weather was cool I would always slip and slide until I was crazy!@Oscar H. Manxz

  32. lifemare Says:

    @Anon
    Taste isn’t exactly why 4chan is famous.
    The shopped joke may have stopped being funny a week after birth, but tasteful it was never.

  33. some Filipino Says:

    It’s hard to say this is the steepest in the world. I travel to Bagio(mountainous area) here in the Philippines often and can say there’s lots of streets as steep as this. So I’m sure there has to be plenty of places as steep or steeper.

  34. KasdK Says:

    I HATE ALL OF YOU FUCKTARDS WHO USE “THE” IN COMBINATION.

  35. totes eh... Says:

    i hate twilight like balls

  36. Saevio Says:

    I live here :)

    Dunedin New Zealand, proud student of Otago Uni, and a coupla mates who flat halfway up this crazy street. But yeah, while the plaque at the bottom does say it’s the world’s steepest street, it isn’t. Apparantly they screwed up the measurement by several degrees. It’s still the steepest in the southern hemisphere though. And believe me, it is pretty damn steep.

  37. KalatSaar Says:

    Hi …
    i can proof that this is Photoshoped …

    in one of the last pictures You see that guy who is standig beside his red car ??? … in the totals of the street there is no red car … so that is proof it must be photoshoped !! :-)
