    Conj of Planets and GPS
    From: Gordon Talge
    Date: 2000 May 09, 12:42 PM

    1)  Conjunction of Planets:
        Wonder if any of you have read the book, "5/5/2000" by Richard
    Noone.
        The basic idea is that the planets aligning on 5/5/2000 would cause
        massive disruption of the ice caps of Anartica causing a "polar
    shift"
        and unless you were at a special secret pivot point you would would
    be
        killed. This whole thing would usher in a new age where what was
    left
        of the world and civilization would have to start over again.
    
    2)  Second topic:
        New GPS signal. Somewhere on the internet a  couple of  years
        ago I got the exact lat and long of my house from a survey of
        the post office. My GPS  unit would drift around, but never be a
        right on match to the post office. Now with the new GPS
        signal, I am within 0.01' of the post office's position. Moveover,
        the GPS readout does not drift around like it use to.
    
    3)  Third:
        Read some books about   WWII and the Battle of Midway Island.
        Too bad we didn't have a GPS system then. A lot of lives could
        have been saved.
