You're correct. In fact, flying back from Oklahoma City last week we diverted from the shortest-distance course due to weather and ended up wandering around Colorado Springs on our way to Denver. (We spent the last third of our flight over snow-covered foothills; as we were on our approach into DIA I spotted Pikes Peak off the right side of the plane.)

(In theory, though, airplanes should fly routes that resemble those shown on my maps.)

Ok, well, the most obvious problem with [new years resolution
about getting a girlfriend] is that the intended outcome relies on
variables which are out of my control. It's a matter of chance,
luck, being in the right place at the wrong time, what have you.
Obviously, it also relies on the willful participation of
another human being. Since the only people we control are
ourselves, making resolutions -- promises to ourselves -- which
require the involvement of others, who may or may not want any
part of the game, is like sitting at home and cheering a
football team, and then saying "We won! We won!" when in fact
you had absolutely nothing to do with any of it. Or something
like that.
