    Throw a tiller into the mix and some people's brains just implode.

    Associated phenomenon: I've noticed that when approaching a group of people on the bike path, if you shout the traditional "On your left!" each person turns and jumps in a random direction, spreading out the group and blocking whatever passage may have previously been available.

    Yes, and I have given up the traditional directive to the helmsman "leave the buoy to starboard" (or port).

    "Huh?"

    The phrase seems backwards to people, or confusing, or highly technical. And I guess if it seems so, it is.
