Today, my girlfriend and I decided to take a jog in an area we never been before. We then got lost. She actually thought that the tattoo on her arm of an open compass with north, east, south, and west would help us. FML

Or OP just doesn't get irony. We should be on the lookout for a "Today my boyfriend thought I was serious when suggested we used my tattoo as a compass. Not wanting to make him look stupid I had to play along. FML"

Actually if she didnt know the difference it would help her, all she has to do is face E to where the sun is rising or W to where it is setting

0. There are offline gps maps.
1. GPS will point on the map where the heck you're. You don't need "turn-by-turn" navigation.
2. Decent phones include compass as well.

Of course, you could try to remember your road, find north using solar position or moss, but why the hell should you bother when you have a device that can tell you your position on the map?


#64 I think what #63 was trying to say is you don't need GPS to know where you've been or where you've gone. USE YOUR HEAD.

You've walked to blocks north from your apartment, are you lost? No. A logical person would simple turn around and walk 2 blocks BACK the way they came.

If you're in, let's say, a forest, it'd be different, but there is so much put out there, roads, street signs, street lights, etc., to help, or at least give a clue of where you are. You shouldn't rely on a phone.

The paradox being that when you ask her which direction to go in, she'll check, and then when she points to say "Thatta way!," "North" will change and she will have to change course and repeat ad nauseam.
She's probably capable of actually falling for that.
