A London ambulance crew was sent 200 miles to Manchester by a faulty satellite navigation system (GPS) http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/england/london/6200054. stm while transferring a patient to another hospital. Fortunately, in this case, the patient was not endangered. Seriously though, Technology should not be seen as a flawless thing, and common sense should be used as a backup."

Trying to be happy is like trying to build a machine for which the only specification is that it should run noiselessly.
