    To prevent us from getting TOO serious

    Back in 1849, in the time of the California Gold Rush, the Tates Watch
    Company of Waltham, Massachusetts decided there was a burgeoning market
    for compasses to be carried by Easterners headed for California.  Since
    Tates already made the cases for pocket watches, it was a simple task to
    fill them instead with compasses. The compasses were so bad that people
    often ended up in Canada or Mexico rather than California. This, of
    course, is the origin of the expression, "He who has a Tates, is lost!"
