Who needs to remember that sort of stuff anymore, don't we all have GPS?

Then explain my Junior year in college, Subby. My eyes were closed in just about every class.

Gig103: Who needs to remember that sort of stuff anymore, don't we all have GPS?


Relying on a machine to do your navigating for you is one way to ensure that you can live in a city for over a decade and still not know where anything is. It's also probably terrifying when the machine stops working.

I'm terrible at navigating. If I'm going someplace new, I have to look the directions up ahead of time and write them down, but as a result, I tend to learn where things are either the first or second time I visit them. Or third....

My point is that I am always shocked when I find someone who has lived here quite a while yet knows less about the city than I do, and these people are always people who use GPS systems in their cars.

How much Math can you do in your head if there is a calculator sitting in front of you? Same thing.

Vision is a higher priority task for humans than thinking, so closing your eyes frees up a lot of CPU resources.

Oldest trick ever, really. Works great.
