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 a ground elevation of 2346 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 a Republican."
>
>"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 Democrat."
>
>"I am," replied the balloonist. "How did you know?"
>
>"Well," said the man, "you don't know where you are or where you're
>going. You've risen to where you are, due to a large quantity of hot
>air. You made a promise that 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."
