Heebie Jeebies

•, By Eric Peters

I know whats coming before you do.ВВВ A hint, the leading edge. The camels nose under the tent. Its just a whiff, sometimes.

But the aroma is unmistakable.

The smell of Uncle. His filthy presence, spoiling all the fun.

It makes me toss and turn; makes it hard to enjoy the cars. Heres an example:

For about the past year, Ive noticed that – irrespective of make or model – new cars with factory installed GPS have this creepy little icon onВ the LCD display screen that reminds you (oh-so-helpfully) ofthe speed limit on whatever road you happen to be driving on at that particular moment. Its white with black letters – just like the real (physical) signs. And itВ updates in real time, as you drive.

Think about that.

What do you suppose it portends?

Ive long suspectedВ that its like Lego. This -В a helpfulВ notificationВ about the speed limit – is the first piece. A building block. Onto which theВ nextВ block will be placed.
