Then there's all the demonstrations: people splattering themselves with black paint and behaving dead on the pavement (yeah, but you're not dead, you just have paint on yourself and dirty clothes and you're not making an impact!), while others are throwing black paintballs at BP gas station signs. (Insert unenthusiastic thumbs-up here.) Ugh.
Let's just be supportive of trying to get through this disaster and do what we can to get that hover-car technology up and going ASAP. Thanks.
