Absolutely the coolest thing you will see this year. Note the "Don't Panic" panel in the car as well

I didn't even realize they were doing that! Weird.
"A strict observance of the written laws is doubtless one of the high duties of a good citizen, but it is not the highest. The laws of necessity, of self-preservation, of saving our country when in danger, are of higher obligation. To lose our country by a scrupulous adherence to written law, would be to lose the law itself, with life, liberty, property and all those who are enjoying them with us; thus absurdly sacrificing the end to the means."

- Thomas Jefferson

I saw the movie Heavy Metal long ago but did not make the connection until it was pointed out. It seemed familiar somehow but ....


I had to google '"don't panic." It was on the cover of Hitchikers Guide to the Galaxy. I did not know that.

Speaking of Heavy Metal (in general). I own a few Rammstein CDs, ripped to my computer etc.
Now I have Sabaton. I like them.

I did not know that either.

All I have to say is...that sucker better not knock into an asteroid that causes some pinball action to send an asteroid our way...otherwise there may be cause to panic...

Right now I am not worried about it...and am typically ambivalent about it should it occur anyway, so...
