“The ramblings and grumblings of author Ad Hudler”

Now, WHICH way is north?!

I am renting a fancy Infiniti in Minnesota this week. The first thing I don't like: There's no key. To start the car all you do is depress the brake and push a button. Question: WHY?!? What's the purpose?

Also, I have a screen/monitor on the dashboard and a camera on the back of the car somewhere that lets me know where I'm going when I'm backing up. Question: WHY?!? Is there a problem with the rearview mirrors?

Also: I have GPS. I never use GPS. Navigational skills significantly erode if you don't use them; ask anyone who relies on the Bitch in the Box, as my wife calls her.

All this needless technology is making us weaker as a species. You read it here first.
