    We got a small electric Mitsubishi van at work for the "Shuttle Bug", a vehicle to carry people from the carpark to the Hospital main entrance.

    "Management" were quoted as saying "It's so quiet, we had to fit a flashing light".....

    I'm waiting for some old lady to complain, after it runs her over, and "management" asking her why she didn't hear the flashing light approaching her from behind!

    After seeing that video, I'm thinking that Tesla's next software update push needs to turn on the hazards whenever the autopilot is enabled!

    Simple fix - playing cards in the wheel spokes, like everyone used to do up here as a kid with your bicycles. Well, except that we used baseball cards, but you probably don't have them on your side of the world.....

    Yoghurt container cut into a strip, stuck on with a clothes peg and tape.

    Already suggested it I think we run on similar wavelengths

    I'll have to find those spokey hubcaps though... like on an 80's LeBaron, or whatever they were on.

    Does the van have a drive shaft? If so, I'm wondering how long four strategically-placed cable ties (don't cut the tails off) phased 90 degrees apart would last slapping against a cow bell hanging from the frame?????

    hmm............ Yes, I agree - but what technology REALLY lacks is that "little trick" that carbon based life units have for making replicas of themselves so easily!! When technology learns how to that - we should start to really worry!

    A police officer came to my house, and asked me where I was between 5 and 6.

    He seemed real irritated when I answered, "Kindergarten...."
