    Rage Against the DMV

    Last weekend, through a convoluted and unfortunate series of events, I made a sudden purchase of a Missouri titled vehicle. The Missouri Department of Revenue (handles vehicle titling and registration) has not been fun to deal with so far. I'm originally from Missouri, but it's been a long time since I've had to deal with them.

    In particular, their call center IVR and queue (or lack thereof) is a joke. First IVR I've called in years that made me genuinely angry, in part because I personally designed and built much of the telephony system architecture in Jefferson City that it runs on and I can't stand what they've apparently done with it, but I was fine up to a point.

    Here's where I lost it though: https://dor.mo.gov/forms/2305.pdf

    Looks like a perfectly good form. But, I kept having to recheck the VIN because I thought I lost a character somewhere. Couldn't find it. Couldn't find it. Finally figured it out.

    What happens if you only complete 17 digits?

    Maybe it's like a deck of cards - you can insert a joker character that doesn't count
    (I would suggest the poo emoji)
    Apparently I should put something witty or profound in here.....

    Don't you know? you're supposed to put the characters *above* the | not between.

    Seventeen shall be the number of the counting and the number of the counting shall be Seventeen. Eighteen shalt thou not count, neither shalt thou count Sixteen, excepting that thou then proceedeth to Seventeen. Nineteen is right out.

    The engineering problems are likely insurmountable. It would be like proposing to land a rocket booster section on a barge floating in the middle of the ocean.

    Book of Armaments, Chapter 2, verses 9–21, describing the manner in which the Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch is to be deployed, of course.
