the morning cram [deadly GPS edition]

with one comment

Could over-dependency on GPS guidance systems lead you to your death?

NPR reports that sometimes GPS systems are wrong, and when that happens in the wrong place, it could end up being fatal.

Kentucky~ No smoking in Murray schools (not even in the boys room). A Symsonia woman died in a car accident. KY 121 Bypass is closed in Mayfield. Trials begin today for Fort Campbell soldier. State officials are meeting to figure out the finances (good luck). The state pays too much for meds too. More homes are empty throughout the state.

Illinois~ Papayas can make you sick.

Tennessee~ Clarksville water tastes “earthy” (yum). A Henry County man drowned in Kentucky Lake. The state gets more money for education.

  1. I ended up in a cow pasture late one night in Eastern Kentucky, using GPS. I have found that GPS units are about 75 percent reliable. Maybe with the progress of technology, they will become more reliable.
