Fond Memories

Those were the days.  Back in 2009, we had such a great time driving around Argentina with our GPS.  It had maps of the entire country, and generally would tell us not only what roads to take, but as we approached each turn it would let us know exactly how far away we were.  It knew where the nearest gas station was, and where there was food and ATMs.

Of course, that’s all over now.  Now that we’re in the post-satellite days, and the night skies have Iridium flashes not from reflection but from explosions as ever-smaller pieces of space debris collide with each other.  And the US military had such sweet dreams of space war, and now all those plans are ruined.

Glad I switched back to cable TV.
