No, no, SF is The City
What get's under my skin are people that call the road "The El Camino Real" which is totally redundant with "the the" and I don't give a hoot if it spans too languages, it's still REDUNDANT!
FWIW, I'd probably never find anything on El Camino Real if it wasn't for Google Nav because, as people that don't live here don't know, it's a road that runs thru a bazillion little California cities and the street numbers change every 5 seconds while you're driving so you could easily miss the city markers and pass 3-4 versions of "1125 El Camino Real" in mere minutes. Now I don't have to take my eyes off the VERY BUSY and dangerous road to look at the numbers on the side of the road, I just wait for Sarah (the phone voice) to say "Your destination is on the right" and pull over.
PC cannot fall out of my pocket
Nor can my phone.
What kind of defective pockets do you use?
you are not allowed to use a mobile whilst driving
Same here too. It's called VOICE COMMAND. Navigation is started by voice command, the address is also entered via voice, and once you set it before you start driving you don't need to touch it again until you reach your destination. People that don't use it don't know how it works but sure have lots of opinions about it that aren't founded in fact.
Reminds me of my SILs recent visit where she tells us we shouldn't use the hot water out of the tap because of lead pipes, ours are all copper, and we shouldn't microwave our plastic food storage because of BPAs, ours are all BPA free, and other old wives tales spread by old old wives yet she's single. The point being she had all these opinions about things she didn't use and didn't know the facts.
Glass house, rocks, blah. :)
