comment Running on autopilot
At the moment, I am favouring this simply because I think the memory aspect is probably important. If there is nothing odd about the journey, then it probably doesn't get separately logged into memory, so we have no specific recollection of it. I will be checking through the references and selecting an answer this weekend.

comment Does Facebook activity predict job performance?
Well, the more time you spend on facebook at work, the lower your performance will be. Does that help? @ArtemKaznatcheev - raise it in meta, because I agree with you.

comment Running on autopilot
I can accept that some actions can be done on autopilot - like playing guitar, or the process of driving, but it is the route finding that I struggle with. And even when I follow a habitual route, it is done consciously, even if without concentrating, which I can accept.
