    Graphene looks pretty promising, but how does it behave in the food chain? How readily and in what manner does it break down in the environment? We might be seeing a lot of it in the near future.

    Asshole parking?? Maybe it’s just some person who doesn’t want to get their brand new vehicle dinged up by assholes who park nice and square in the nice square boxes but who don’t care enough about other people’s property to open their doors carefully, or leave behind a card if they have caused damage.

    NoNoNoNoNo – We must all follow the parking ROOLs, tho, and carry chalk to point out “deviant” behavior with our technoglowing passive-aggressive chalk and our so, so self-righteous moralizing time and energies.

    All because someone didn’t park their car in a single space when there are thousands of identical spaces for all the chalk-wielding conformist enforcers to use.

    Who is the asshole in this story, again?
