Getting lost is the best way to learn an area. And what a chance to discover things you didn't know were there. Getting directions might in reality be a waste of time better spent in exploring uncharted neighborhoods. Call it the conquistador syndrome. Onward to the cities of gold...

It seems the male reluctance to stop and ask for directions is more a western observation than the east. With confusing street names and 5 or more lines of addressing (not to mention no street names!) in countries like India, every one, male or female, stops and asks for directions! MP Divakar

I think both. I give and ask for directions. My concern was never the potential for wreck--it was the time wasted and the late arrival to a destination. Thanks for your comment though.

You bring up a really good point. There's hardly any reason to be lost now with everything at our fingertips--that wasn't true in the past. But really, is that the reason--the quality of the directions received? Hmmm.

Generally, the reason that I (and most guys I know) don't stop to ask for directions is that most people (of both genders) are terrible at giving directions, even when they know where you're going. It's much faster to read a map or use a GPS.

I don't understand. What does "when lost" mean? And aren't directions something that you GIVE, not ASK FOR? Seriously, save the bother and expense of downloading yet another App. Just go ahead and have your wreck. Then you can ask the paramedics for directions and your friends will never know.

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST
As data rates begin to move beyond 25 Gbps channels, new problems arise. Getting to 50 Gbps channels might not be possible with the traditional NRZ (2-level) signaling. PAM4 lets data rates double with only a small increase in channel bandwidth by sending two bits per symbol. But, it brings new measurement and analysis problems. Signal integrity sage Ransom Stephens will explain how PAM4 differs from NRZ and what to expect in design, measurement, and signal analysis.
