Flashback to a classic Wile E. Coyote cartoon, where he paints stripes on the 
road to direct the Road Runner into a granite wall where he had painted a 
tunnel. The Road Runner of course runs into the tunnel that isn't there.

How long before some "coyote" does the same thing in real life, directing a 
Tesla into a wall?
