+Lost in Space Posted August 5, 2008 Share Posted August 5, 2008 I got a GPS for Christmas, and I spent the entire day sitting on the couch, putting it to good use. Like, I figured out exactly where our house is. My wife told me this was exciting news. I think she was being sarcastic, but I couldn't be sure, because I had to keep watching the GPS screen, in case our house moved. I also used my GPS to figure out exactly how far my couch is from LaGuardia airport (1,103 miles). These is NO END to the usefulness of this device! My new GPS device is an extremely important gadget that every guy in the world needs. It receives signals from orbiting satellites and somehow - I suspect the "cosine" is involved - it figures out exactly where on the Earth you are. Let's say you're in the town of Arcola, Illinois, but for some reason you do not realize this. You turn on your GPS, and, after pondering for a few minutes, it informs you that you are in ... Arcola Illinois! My wife argues that it's easier to just ASK somebody, but of course you cannot do that, if you truly are a guy. Quote Link to comment
