It's all in knowing how, or, how you understand the instructions. Of course, this is after you tried every avenue before reading those instructions.
Perhaps it is true about men never stopping when lost and asking for directions. After all, if you travel in the same direction, sooner or later you will recognize where you are. You may have left Colorado headed for Canada, but seeing the sign that reads "Leaving the USA; Entering Mexico" will, obviously, tell you where you are. At least you will know to turn around and head back in the direction from whence you came.
