GPS Has Ruined Us All
Reliance on driving GPS has turned me into a fantastic moron. I might be able to check the movie times in India on my phone but if it dies I won't be able to find my way across town. I have a 10-hour drive ahead of me today and I've vowed that before I leave I'm going to by an atlas and trace the route, then make notations on mileage and pay attention. I will even buy a compass from a gas station and glue it to the dash of my rental and when I get lost, I will stop at a gas station and ask the attendant for directions, and I’m sure he’ll check his smartphone, and I won’t even get upset.
