I get a lot of dumb spam-like emails with titles like FW:, LOL, and THIS IS SOOOO FUNNY. Usually they are anything but, so I get annoyed, deleting them after cursing at my computer screen.
Today, I got an email from my good friend Helen. It contained the following directions. Since it was related to London, where I'll be traveling to in August, I followed them.
1. go to www.google.com
2. click on "maps"
3. click on "get directions"
4. type "New York" in the first box (the "from" box)
5. type "London" in the second box (the "to" box)
6. hit "get directions"
7. scroll down to step #23
And I thought I was a wiseass.
