Anything to make trips more efficient is great, but my last delay wasn’t caused by air traffic. It was because the brakes on my plane weren’t responding correctly. The flight was delayed an hour before we were put on another plane.
So, I’m walking down the street in San Francisco today, and all of a sudden, I’m thinking, “I’ve been here before,” which is impossible because I’ve never been here before.
But I knew the street. When I got to the end, I saw this:
