Sparing no expense for their president, the Iranian govt. had a special autopilot installed in his helicopter. All the pilot had to do is type in the destination; and the helicopter checks gps, etc... and it flies itself there. The only drawback was that the software for it was written in English. When the president boarded, he said "take me to Tehran !"
Pilot types in destination: T-E-R-R-A-I-N

Someone really ought to tell them that the world of Ayn Rand?s novel was not meant to be aspirational.
