Will you look at that

I did a double take: but those don’t exist yet! Right? Do they make prototypes that actually, y’know, go out on the road? Rather than just sitting there looking pretty (and immobile) in some showroom somewhere where they want to show it off?

I had to go home and search till I found one to be sure whose it was, and I found no pictures of a Tesla Cybertruck that had it painted in military camouflage colors. But that’s what it was. Not far from Google’s self-driving-vehicle headquarters. Do I detect a taunt?

It looked like nobody taller than a toddler in a carseat could possibly sit behind the driver of that thing. Elon will have to take a backseat.

Well, there’s no mistaking that, is there? How very weird.

… so they took all the research about how crumple zones save lives in both vehicles when there’s a car crash and went “but this will be *cooler*!” and just decided to plow ahead?

This should surprise me less than it does, I guess.
