...Because we'd rather not hear the "obvious" answer

1. go to www.google.com
2. click on "maps"
3. click on "get directions"
4. type "New York" in the first box (the "from" box)
5. type "London" in the second box the "to" box
6. click on "get directions"
7. then scroll down to step #23 of those directions

I particularly enjoy that the directions continue on from that point!

Good thing they added that disclaimer:

"These directions are for planning purposes only."

Peace,

At least it is better than Map Quest. Those fuckers will get you lost everytime.

Regarding men not asking directions.

You see you men just don't get it. The reason that women ask directions is that they target the best looking guy on the street and chat them up.

You men are missing out on a world of opportunities.....

No wonder you find it so hard to pick up.....

Being from Ohio, I refuse to believe I could swim that far without encountering a detour or construction delay. :Roll eyes:

By the way, Smileyblue, guys ask directions from hot chicks all the time.







Just not when our wives are in the car.
:Razz:

Ain't that the truth. A band I was in once had a (barely) out of town gig, so the manager got directions via Mapquest from my place (the rehearsal space) to the gig. She just handed them out to the band without reading them.

Mapquest didn't seem to know about any of the bridges across the Colorodo River here in Austin (there are 9 of them), so it directed us to go upriver to Marble Falls to cross and then come nearly all the way back to town. Total distance: about 135 miles. Real distance to the gig according to my odometer (I found my own way): about 15 miles.

Thankfully, no one in the band (not even the drummer) was enough of an idiot to try to follow the directions she gave us.

I saw that one about google maps a few weeks ago.


Here is another one that shows that someone at google has a good sense of humor.

Keep zooming in on the landing sites.

Thanks for sharing, click and Spock! I needed a chuckle this morning...

As for why men don't ask for directions... well... the answer is really rather simple:

Because we're not lost. Ever.

:D

Hello! Canada! Up here, to the north!

We have a London too. It doesn't require a swim!

A hell, you guys always forget about us.

And instead of going to Plymouth to continue on land, they make you swim to France first to take the ferry to Dover

Absolutely certain.

Men don't get lost. Ever.

We occasionally find ourselves in places we didn't intend to go to, though.

But that's not lost.

That's exploration.

:D

Dave

How do you think all those nasty rumors started about Richard Gere and the gerbils?
In 'Pretty Woman', he stopped and asked Julia Roberts for directions. That one act pretty much stamped him as being GHEY. (nttawwt)

That's not the way it works in my house. My wife says that I can't find stuff because I don't have a uterus.

Totally opposite situation in my house. If I can't find it, it ain't missing!

My wife and kids would lose their heads if they weren't screwed on tight enough.

The only reason we haven't found Bigfoot is because I haven't gone to look for him yet.


And I always know where I am!

I'm connecting the dots here...




The things you learn here in the Womb.









I never knew that "GPS" stands for "Gynocological Positioning System".







Us guys don't have a chance, what with our outdated "divining rod" hardware...

And that's why one should never take iron pills with Viagra. You'll end up always pointing north!

The one sure way I've discovered to locate an object that has gone MIA is to give up and start looking for something else. Never fails.

One way I always seem to be screwing up, though, is when I run across something I have been searching for in a really weird place; I move it to a more appropriate place, and then it's lost again. I can always remember the weird place where it was when I found it, but not the "better" place I moved it to.

My method is to buy a new one. Then the old one practically jumps in your lap.

One quirk for guys: We'll tear three rooms apart, move furniture, reach elbow-deep in the chairs and couch (Hey! an M&M!), looking for the remote.



When we're only 4 steps away from the TV.
