I found an amazingly useful bit of information while trolling the interwebs the other day: Wristwatch as a compass. For someone as directionally challenged as me, this is great! Armed with this neat trick, I feel confident I could be dropped in the deep woods with nothing but a granola bar and my Bulova and my body would be discovered within only 5 miles of civilization, instead of 40.
(Fix it or Deal is in no way responsible for the validity of the information that is posted. If you use your watch as a compass and end up on MLK Boulevard instead of at Ikea, don’t blame me when you get stabbed.)
