I only hope he didn't have a chance to breed and propogate his DNA.

Just goes to show you can only make technology idiot-resistant, not idiot-proof.

The next tiime your GPS says "right turn in half a mile " make sure theres a road there.

I found this funny.  With all of todays technological advances we're babying those who would otherwise succumb to Darwinism.  This is Mother nature's way of bitch-slapping us back into reality :)

We have GPS in 2 out of 3 cars here.  The only time we even bother to turn them on is when we're trying to find some place in an area we are unfamiliar with, and even then we understand that the information is only as accurate as it's latest update.

I have had a few run ins with my GPS telling me something that was incorrect, like drive through an intersection with a concrete barrier on the other side. 

 

I always said use a GPS like your wife reading a map.  It might be in the general area, but your still better off looking to see exactly where your going.

People are slaves to GPS. I was getting driven home one night and I was sitting right there telling the driver how to get back to my apartment. But the GPS was giving a different, weird, route. She kept saying, "But Richard says to take this street!" Not to mention that GPS makes people not look at the road.

She calls her GPS Richard?.... I'm not sure I would want to be in the car with this person behind the wheel :P

Don't trust technology, it easily breaks.

When Gordon said in the last podcast about smart people being dumb?  I think this is the kinda thing he meant!
