"Actually, I find them useful. I use them both while driving and cycling. Many times I will stop pedaling or come off the gas if I know I will not get to the intersection in time at the speed I'm going. Though, I was never one of those people…"

"That is interesting, Haddon, because I remember that I kept looking at the sky for where the sun was, but it was uniformly grey. Apparently, this is a primordial response for us former hunter-gatherers to determine direction."
