Pole Position [Hey, You!]

Illustration by Bob Aul

You were the idiot speeding southbound down the 101 freeway during fast-moving Memorial Day traffic. You were probably moving at about 100 mph, expertly weaving in and out of lanes, Pole Position-style. Thing is: Your sports car was emitting a thick, white smoke that almost immediately fogged up all four lanes of traffic to the point that visibility was reduced to almost nothing, as if a giant cloud had just descended upon the freeway. This went on for an unbelievably long five minutes or so, until a CHP vehicle swooped in behind you, yet still you continued to speed along before finally noticing him and pulling over. Hopefully, you got a nasty ticket and a ruined car engine out of the deal. Nice work, fool.
