Wasting Time

Check out this article on how British men waste 60 million hours a year on the road because they don’t ask for directions.

Hey, someone has to take charge, wrong or not. Think of the cavemen and how obvious it is that we are the way we are. When it comes to survival, there’s no time to stop and ask the competition where the wolves are coming from. We are programmed to act and react. Fight or flight. It’s what got us here, evolution just didn’t know we would end up in cars on endless stretches of highway.

Who knows, if we stay in cars long enough (here I’m thinking of thousands of years), things might get reversed - maybe the men that survive and stick around are those that stop to ask questions.

Not likely though.
