A woman in a hot air balloon realized she was lost. She lowered her
>altitude and spotted a man in a boat below. She shouted to him,
>"Excuse me, can you help me? I promised a friend I would meet him an
>hour ago, but I don't know where I am."
>The man consulted his portable GPS and replied, "You're in a hot air
>balloon, approximately 30 feet above ground elevation of 2,346 feet
>above sea level. You are at 31 degrees, 14.97 minutes north latitude and
>100 degrees, 49.09 minutes west longitude.
>She rolled her eyes and said, "You must be an Obama Democrat."
>"I am," replied the man. "How did you know?"
>"Well," answered the balloonist, "everything you told me is technically
>correct. But I have no idea what to do with your information, and I'm
>still lost. Frankly, you've not been much help to me."
>The man smiled and responded, "You must be a Republican."
>"I am," replied the balloonist. "How did you know?"
>"Well," said the man, "you don't know where you are -- or where you are
>going. You've risen to where you are , due to a large quantity of hot
>air. You made a promise you have no idea how to keep, and you expect me
>to solve your problem.
>You're in exactly the same position you were in before we met, but
>somehow, now it's my fault."
