    Jason, this one’s all yours. [But whatever happened to “Take care and God Bless”?]

    I’d rather be a bachelor than do all that.

    One time I saw 145 emergency calls from stranded drivers who used Google map in just one year.

    May the Lord be with you.

    The Sardinian tourists probably at first didn’t want to bother getting regular, physical, non-digital maps at the tourist office(s).

    About the emergency calls? If you were tempted to say “That’s gross!” I just spared you the trouble.

    What if you’re a young man of the Hamar tribe who wants to get married, but you’re physically disabled in some way and you can’t pounce around on bulls? I hope they let you off the hook for that. Also, suddenly I want to go to Baunei.

    I tried looking up the Courtyard of Elements, but each video either had dubbed music, or it just sounded like rain. I can listen to rain running down gutters at my house.

    A GPS would have done no better. “Recalculating.”

    Only the young men should go through that? This is blatant gender discrimination, I say.

    I love using Google Maps, but I always hate how long it takes them to update changes. It should not take years to do, and that’s partly how you get those situations.

    Just who updates those maps? Don’t tell me it’s one of their lousy algorithm bots. I’ve seen blatant errors in them, even for names of places. And don’t even ask me about the lousy translations of places names it does.

    In Wales there’re road sign, in English and in Welsh, warning lorry drivers that despite our GPSs telling us that we can, many roads are unnavigable…

    That doesn’t make any sense. You have to marry first. Then, when your life is worthless, you go to the savage beast :D That would be an upgrade!

    Like jumping across some cows will prepare ya for that! Pikers! How about three punches to the groin while you whistle Yankee Doodle? When you don’t expect it? Then a dozen eggs in your pants, followed by a swift kick to the ass. That’s the Mother in Law test.

    I believe there is a hidden option in Google maps that is set to “use trails” A friend of mine was in Europe, he was half way down a goat path, in a car, and wondered what was going on. He happened to find a local that showed him the setting and turned it off. With the car he had this path was do-able.

    GOOGLE sent the town of Baunei road construction crews to fix the island.

    Dresden Germany now requires licensing and permits for soffit and gutter companies.

    Ethiopian men are still not as fast as the fastest animal on Earth, the Ethiopian chicken.

    Hah! We’re much more clever in America for trying to make music. We listen to clogged downspouts. Water dripping from the ceiling, and untrimmed branches scratching up against the windows!

    Most of the videos (if not all of them) have dubbing so you can’t actually hear any music from the building. The one or two without sound like, um…, rain.

    Just wait and see how much bull you have to deal with after being married a while.

    Take care, may the Lord be with you, and gesundheit.

    Good to know about that in Sardinia. When I eventually get there to try casu marzu cheese, I’ll know not to trust Google maps…

    The google maps were OK, it was Sardinia’s roads and trails that were not located correctly.

    I don’t know about Google maps, but the GPS the Uber drivers have, the last I knew, still gives them directions to turn the wrong way onto a street that is one-way! It’s been that way for years!

    I am Sardinian.

    Years ago, before Google Maps on phones, a pair ot german tourists, following their GPS, ended up in the village of Piscinas, near where I live. They asked the locals where the beach of Piscinas was, because they were supposed to meet friends there for lunch.

    The beach called “Piscinas” was about 100km north of there.
