I got an interesting email from Amazon.com today:



"As someone who's purchased hiking and outdoor books, you might like to try the exciting outdoor activity called geocaching. Every neighborhood in the U.S. has buried treasure waiting for you to find with geocaching and a Magellan GPS."

And underneath are ads for various Magellan GPSr units.

I just thought that was interesting. Image

...buried treasure...


I knew it! I just knew you people were out digging up the public parks! First, Law and Order, and now Amazon.com. It must be true! I saw it on TV and the internet! Image

Remember the part in the movie "The Minority Report" When Tom Cruise is walking through the mall? (the ad screens scan his eye and say Hi John, how about a pair of khakis" or whatever it was... Maybe that's not so futuristic after all....

LOL!!

I did email them back letting them know of their "common misconception". In 3 very short paragraphs, I wrote, "Geocaches are NOT BURIED" 3 times. LOL.
