A voice guidance system in a car that, instead of directing every turn on-route, simply repeats the phrases "warmer" and "colder" with varying volume depending on how close the driver is to the final destination.

       Yes! Yes! Yessss!   

       Can it also, please, pick a random destination within certain limits of distance?

       Oops, actually deleted [mouseposture]'s anno about the difficulty of long-distance travel using this system. Sorry!   

       [theircompetitor], there are _much_ better ways to interpret that expression literally. Trust me.

       @[prufrax]'s link: Dang, I really thought this was an original idea. But hey, it's not redundancy. This was a fun idea when you had it, and it still is.
