Options not included...yet
We finally decided to get a second car after living as a one-car household for more than five years, diving deeply into the brave new world of computers perched on radial tires. Ten months later, I am almost done with the owner’s manual and, maybe, I will be ready to drive this thing before the lease runs out.
As you might expect, the car has sensors that beep when someone is walking behind the car or when we’re getting too close to the car in front of us, when there’s something in our blind spot and when we’re about to hit a shopping cart in the parking lot. All the new technology is very cool, and very, very noisy.
Still, most of these features fall into the category of nice-to-have, not essential. What I really need isn’t in the car, yet, but the automaker who delivers on my must-haves will earn a customer for life. For instance, I absolutely need…
Beyond these innovative accessories, consumers will clamor for my soon-to-be-patented water cannons and poop blasters. This is a gold mine for the first car company to compensate me for my brilliance.
The biggest problem with technology is that it’s developed by people who don’t get out much. Spend enough years on the road with crazy people, though, and the horizons expand astronomically.

Too funny!!! I totally identify with all of the above. I will be the first to purchase all of these necessary innovations, as soon as they are avail.

Annoyance and impatience often breed phenomenal invention, or in your case, Michael, very funny posts! What you're after is a George Jetson - James Bond hybrid car, equipped to blast idiots on the road, and then make a quick, aerial getaway!

I had hoped for a way to escape by air, but people tell me I drone on too much already.

Michael; Let know when those options are available. I'll be on board. BTW, I like what you're doing with your blog. You've found your "voice."

Thanks. Did your automated gas pump ever get its patents?

Michael...Seeing as you're a kinda urban guy, I figured you could use some "open road" ideas.

You are an evil genius, which makes me very impressed and just a bit frightened.
