    It's for this reasons like this, it's inevitable that the machines will take over one day.

    c'mon, you have to have some basic idea how far things are and how low it takes to get there, i can't believe this woman made it to 67

    Distracted by what? What could possibly distract you so completely as to do so for days, over the course of 900 miles?

    This is absolutely hilarious. I know GPSs can fuck up on you, but I usually figure it out fairly quickly. Anyways, there are things called Google Maps and Mapquest that I normally look at before hand to see where I'm going. This would have prevented this stupid mistake. Also, I really find it hard to believe she has no knowledge of the geography of her own country. She should at least know within a couple hours how close Brussels is to her.


    Something similar, but not as drastic happened with someone my dad used to work with. This guy bought tickets to a NASCAR race in Bristol, TN. He lived in Cookeville, TN which is right off I-40, so 90% of the drive is just I-40 East. He went west on I-40, and he ended up in Memphis before he realized he went the wrong way. Bristol is only about 3-4hrs from Cookeville. Memphis is almost 5.

    If your opinion is true, I'd rather euthanize you.

    She was probably daydreaming about all the waffles and frites she was going to eat once she picked up her friend.
