  1. What’s going on with all the car fires?

    • Angry bicyclists?

    • Ted The MOT inspector.

      In England there is something called an MOT on all cars over 3 years old to examine road worthiness. Over here you see all kinds of glued together contraptions, bald tires, broken turn signals. It doesn’t surprise me in the least that these older cars cobbled together with duct tape and prayer blow up.
