…because the researchers at Aperture Science did, and look what happened to them. But if you’re brave enough, a Redditor has created a GLaDOS voice for Garmin Nuvi GPS devices and is sharing it free of charge.
A lot of people I know love to travel, but they can’t, because: a) They have to work; b) They have no time; or c) They have no money. I love to travel myself, but sadly, the first two reasons apply and sometimes the third one is applicable, too.
