Description: Address correction. Map is close but 1775 Senseny Rd is actually my current location. Waze is consistently off by about 20 yards.


20 yards?!?!?! You're concerned about 20 yards? Just consider the technological marvel that is the miniaturized computer that triangulates your position from nuclear clocks in satellites 12,600 miles away which transmit only ~50W of signal. The fact that you're not satisfied with 20 yard accuracy demonstrates just how jaded we've become with our amazing technological feats.

Agreed, the problem there is between the steering wheel and the seat.

That reminds me, is Southern California the only place where people preface the freeway with "the"? I've done a fair bit of traveling around this country, and I don't think I've noticed it anywhere else. Take "the" 210 to "the" 101 and then head south until your hit "the" 5.


It's a California thing. One of the minor annoyances on TV shows that are set in the DC area around me is when they refer to 95, 295, 395, or 495 as 'the 95' or whatever (however, it is 'the beltway'). That and the facts that they can drive anywhere within the region in a few minutes and they think there's lush rural farmland with gorgeous views of the Washington Monument and Capitol Building (I'm looking at you NCIS).
