Maybe Antarctica (updated)

Creating a surface-to-idiot missile is actually quite simple*. Testing it is next to impossible because the guidance system is constantly overwhelmed with targets.

* No, really. It is! I designed one and had it about 95% working. I think there was a problem with a switch though, because every time I turned it on the darn thing would blow up on my workbench.

Update: Thanks to Zoe pointing out the spelling error (now fixed). Maybe it wasn't the switch...

We had the same problem when we were developing the MSG (Moron Sensitive Guidance) system, but a few hours on the Capital Beltway gave it lots of exercise.

Suface? Rhymes with Doofus? :)

I've found in my own case such things were usually caused by a problem between the headphones.
