Purim Post: The WAZE Conundrum

On a very serious note, Israel's Ministry of Religion has contracted the popular GPS application WAZE to create a special service for WAZE users in Israel -- the ability to find mikvaot in every Israeli city.

Ostensibly, this is a great idea - demonstrating how the religious establishment connects to the community by offering a well-intentioned  high-tech solution for discretely finding the closest mikva to your location.

Unfortunately, due to the nature of social media and the interconnectedness of Smartphone applications, the following disaster scenarios are a very likely possibility...

And of course, this would propagate via the web on twitter and all the standard social media applications.

Maybe the religious ministry didn't think this through...
