This image floated to my desktop last week with the caption "OMG look at those gas prices!" The comment is hardly original and has to be from a nameless forum poster somewhere (nameless because it's not worth my time to look it up.)
It reminded me of Deus Ex. There's a part when you walk by a gas station. You look up and you see this:
And you think "Wow society really went to shit if gas was pushing 4 bucks a gallon!" Following that you take your pile of guns and continue on your merry way to slaughtering scores of members of various shadowy factions.
Well, gas is almost pushing $4 a gallon. Is it time to go buy a shotgun? Maybe I should at least buy sunglasses, a black leather raincoat and get to work on my hacking skills.
