I agree.. we're rapidly approaching diminishing returns the same way a pressure cooker reaches the edge of its containment abilities.
That's just it you're not in plain view of all, only the people around you at any given point along your journey. Also, your travels aren't being recorded for posterity and monday morning quarterbacking by desperate bureaucrats or law enforcement looking to justify their jobs.

It's a shitty metric.
slashdot isn't targeted at newbs.
