PS, or Global Positioning System, has really changed our world. With a store bought, handheld device, even Cooter can pinpoint his exact location on this vast 3rd rock from the sun. Maps? Who needs stinkin’ maps? We have the ability to know our exact coordinates in terms of longitude and latitude at all times. Yeah, those are those things they talked about in 6th grade. Apparently, they really are used for something.
But anyway, I’m sure that GPS was behind this latest and stupifying waste of government tax dollars. You see this sign and you think, “Wow, I’m 1/4 of the way west around the world! Yep, the good ole ninetieth longitude.”
But, it got me thinking. When I’m coming the other way toward the 90th degree longitude line, aren’t I now 3/4 of the way EAST around the world?
