something to think about
Have you ever looked at a map posted in a tourist town, or looked at the fire-escape route map on the back of a hotel door? Remember how there is a big “X” with “You Are Here” next to it?
Here’s something for you to ponder today: If you’re in Hawaii, the map you look at says that you are there. But at the same time, if you were holding a map from, say Idaho, it would tell you that you were in Idaho. HOW could you be in Idaho and Hawaii at the same time?
They are magic teleporting maps, I bet.
(This was an actual conversation I observed, between a few 40+ year-old men this morning)
