Photographic proof that Uncle Joel really does live in the middle of nowhere…

Spent a very great deal of time in the car today. And coming home, BB’s car presented me with proof that I have indeed ended up in my perfect promised land.

About Joel

You shouldn't ask these questions of a paranoid recluse, you know.

    OK, for those of us without satnav screens, what is all that? What are the little red-centered Cheerios? Is the flag the lair? I’m so confused.

  2. Joel says:

    The little red-centered Cheerios are breadcrumbs marking the car’s previous route(s). The point is, the GPS has no record of any actual roads – or anything else.

  3. Kentucky says:

    So . . . the flag is, in fact, the official MIDDLE OF NOWHERE.

    😉 😉 😉

    There’s no place like home.

    My 2014 RAV4 has pseudo-GPS. Got 3 different explanations from 3 dealership people on how it receives its data (cellphone/satellite/FM radio). Less-than-major-roads aren’t ever displayed. Apparently, once it has a fix, it uses ded-reckoning tracking. Dunno if it snitches on me to the mothership.

  6. Kentucky says:

    Wild-ass guess . . .

    Whatever is placing the “pings” represented by red-center Cheerios does so on a fixed time interval. Ergo, the spacing between the Cheerios is an indicator of the relative speed of the vehicle between any two consecutive Cheerios . . . faster when spaced out, slower when closely grouped, by virtue of the distance traveled between any two consecutive Cheerios.

    Ya think, maybe?

To the stake with the heretic!
