    I have to admit that my mild criticism is just a product of my own mental
    sloth. I just can't be bothered memorizing yet more nautica. I wonder if
    this was the pattern that led to the demise of "boxing the compass"?  This
    is yet another quirk of the nautical world that I could never fathom. I
    guess I am a heretic at heart.
