    Sure, but luckily that's not an important part or anything. (Kidding.)

    Central Indiana- I've not filled up in two weeks so I don't know whether things are nutty here. Even if I were working at the office, it's a twenty minute walk each way, so as long as I can bike over to the Kroger to get my white bread, milk and eggs I think I'll survive the Pipocalypse.

    I filled up here last night in one of our cars - some stations are out of gas, I only had to wait a few minutes but the price has gone up about .$20 a gallon in a few days.

    The people who hoarded gas and put it in trash bags in their trunks need to get a free never ending cruise for the rest of their lives.

    They need to be locked up Chinese Covid style anytime thereís an inconvenience, as to protect the rest of society from their selfish stupidity.

    Iím done listening to them ramble on about shortages when they personally cause them.

    I've seen stories about two different gas hoarders -- one caught herself on fire, the other's car was destroyed by fire. People are dumb.

    I filled up my second car (the one that had hardly any gas because I meant to fill up earlier this week when there was no run on the stations but aimlessly drove by said stations a la Homer Simpson) - tried about 5 stations and then 2 of them near me had gas at regular prices and very little wait. Weird times, but I do enjoy the stories of idiots burning things down with the gas stored in their trunks - karmas a b...ch.

    I was surprised to hear that the ransom was only $5 million. They should have paid that ASAP and then instituted security policies to prevent it (now and in the future). I assumed it was a much larger amount.

    I know Tesla (and I assume many other companies) hold Hackathons and reward hackers who can exploit their systems. That needs to be a standard practice.
