The last time I got completely and utterly lost in the middle of
Yorkshire I 
sent a picture of a road sign to a mate, who was able to tell me where I

was.

My camera also tends to get used at family gatherings as I'm the only
person 
with a large enough memory card for a decent batch of pictures.  The
fact 
that I have a bunch of MP3's on it not withstanding.
