Since guns were banned in the UK the incidence of home invasion and violent crime has skyrocketed. Being gunless has really help protect people there hasn't it?

quote: If I get a knock on the door after 9PM, I just answer the door. The thought that it could be somebody dangerous doesn’t even cross my mind. It never happens where I live. Even at 3AM, I’d do it, just a bit more cautiously. I’d never assume I was ever in danger. I’d think it was the police or a distressed neighbor, never a criminal. It just doesn’t happen here.

quote: Woman drives 900 miles out of her way after GPS error By Mike Krumboltz | The Sideshow (Yahoo News)Put too much faith in technology and you may wind up in Croatia. A 67-year-old woman from Belgium learned that the hard way after she followed (faulty) directions from her GPS device.The woman only wanted to go about 90 miles from her hometown of Hainault Erquelinnes, Belgium, to pick up a friend at the Brussels train station. Her GPS device sent her about 900 miles to the south before (during the second day of driving) she realized that something was amiss. It's unclear if she entered the address incorrectly or if the GPS was faulty.Discovery explains that the driver, Sabine Moreau, stopped twice for gas, slept on the side of the road, and "even suffered a minor car accident" along the way. She told El Mundo that she wasn't paying attention."I was distracted, so I kept driving. I saw all kinds of traffic signs, first in French, then German and finally in Croatian, but I kept driving because I was distracted. Suddenly I appeared in Zagreb and I realized I wasn't in Belgium anymore."The lesson here: If you start seeing road signs in (multiple) foreign languages, pull over. You're probably going the wrong way.
