Can imagine him doing one ..... unsighted, putting his hand in some dark, damp, creepy hole and rummaging around for a star ..... then the camera pans into the hole and we see the fat overgrown orange Simmsy bug in there nibbling at his fingers! YUK !!!!!!
Bit off topic but during WW11 (and after) a hyperbolic Longe Range navigation system was developed(for ships and aircraft) . It was called LORAN. One of the transmitters was located at Stavanger.
I remember trying to get a fix with it in the middle of Southern Indian Ocean.
