@Ronald, the word “prudence” isn’t specifically funny, he is simply saying in shorthand “suggesting that i take the map is a prudent idea.” Prudent meaning, acting with or showing care and thought for the future.
It took a minute, but I finally clicked on Blake and Vachel’s “Left/Starboard” exchange.
It’s funny, how much color they now know dogs can see… It would be quite a different world to us, with a narrower spectrum.
When you think of all the information that maps DON’T contain — the eddies and currents in rivers and bays, the drift of industrial smoke and water pollution, the amount of car and truck traffic on any particular route, at what particular times, the location of blind spots and dangerous curves or uncertain road surfaces — it’s amazing that we get any utility out of them at ALL.
You can find maps that show all that – one at a time, including real time air traffic.
Um, starboard is the right side of the vehicle.
