People were amazed that I took off from Michigan headed for Frisco Texas without a map. I looked at a map before leaving and got an idea of a basic route then called my destination from Little Rock about the best route to Plano and then I called from Plano for my friend to come find me so I could follow him to Frisco.

Just watched “the Avengers” this weekend. Their hover aircraft carrier was falling out of the sky and needed to get back over the ocean.

Samuel Jackson calls down to the bridge and asks for a status update and the navigator dude said the computer was down and they couldn’t get the coordinates blah blah blah. Jackson screams back tho him which direction the sun rises and to turn that way and keep it in the left window.

Pretty much sums up todays brain dead way of relying on computers instead of using common sense.
