Sigh. Captain Clumsy is making my life a misery… again. Recently, I installed a brand-new 'simple' navigation device – one I had invented myself – on his ship. And he clearly didn’t listen to my instructions when I briefed him on how to use it. This morning I had a call from him, and it was more of the usual...
“It’s broken,” he said. “Your new navigation… thingy. Its compass isn’t working properly – it’s all messed up.”
“What?!” I sighed, exasperated. “What have you done this time?”
“Nothing,” Captain Clumsy replied. “I… er… just got a bit lost, so I docked on the nearest island, not entirely sure where – there’s no other land around for maybe 25 kilometres or more…”
“Get to the point.”
“Indeed, well the compass is pointing all over the place – south is north, west is south, and north is west. It’s not entirely broken though – the red dot is labelled with my name, so that’s good…”
Frowning, I logged onto the system which allowed me to view his imaging remotely. Then I groaned – for once, he hadn't actually broken anything, but...
“You’re reading it all wrong – yes, the red dot does show your current location in the town where you’ve docked, but the label shows the town’s name, not yours – that's purely coincidence. As for this ‘broken compass’ – did you pay any attention to my demonstration at all?!”
Captain Clumsy is completely misreading the visuals – which island has he landed on? How can you tell? And what is the Captain's real first name?
