Rum, Sodomy, and the Lash: Pick Two

Brave New World

I'm sitting in my car at a truckstop. It's a place called "Love's" - they're a chain all the way across Route 66 (which is now I-40, but I still think 66 is way cooler). I tried to avoid them, onaccounta the name - but it turns out they have wi-fi at every station.

So, I'm currently plugged into the net, from my car. In addition, I'm receiving GPS coordinates from satellites up in orbit, allowing me to fix my exact position. (N35' 9.6"; W103' 42", a place called Tucamcari, NM. They have a dinosaur museum).

Ten years ago, this would have been science-fiction.
