Bitchin' tan, bro.

In a move that proves manufacturers probably shouldn't jokingly print "best worn over your head like an astronaut helmet" on plastic bags, a group of Japanese tourists followed the GPS directions in their rental car into the channel separating two Australian islands. "...But there's water up ahead." GUN IT -- MAYBE WE'RE SUPPOSED TO HYDROPLANE!

The Tokyo students had wanted to take a day trip to Straddie and believed their GPS unit would be able to guide them there. The GPS forgot to mention the 15 kilometres of water and mud between the mainland and the island.


Yuzu Noda, 21, said she was listening to the GPS and "it told us we could drive down there. It kept saying it would navigate us to a road. We got stuck . . . there's lots of mud."

AHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! If your GPS told you to drive off a mountain would you do it? Because I'll totally program it to say that if you would.

Thanks to Joel, who claims his GPS told him to go to that strip club so he can't be blamed.
