Be Warned

I’ve been meaning to mention this for a long time: since I live relatively near Google’s headquarters, I am constantly (every. single. day.) seeing their self-driving cars zipping around. They’re adorably designed…….

Yet I want you to know something: they go PRECISELY the speed limit. After all, Google doesn’t want to create lawbreakers, do they? So once these things are popular, just expect them to be rolling roadblocks, since the damned things are so obedient to the letter of the law. As usual, you heard it on Slope first.
