and Fuck Kia for making the most laughable bumpers in history. I ran over a thick piece of zig-zagging wire someone had thoughtfully placed in the middle of the road, near a corner, so that making a right turn brought my tire right over it. The wire pierced the tire, which grabbed a good firm hold of it, and it then proceeded to bash the fuck out of my bumper with each rotation until it knocked it off. Probably would have looked funny if caught on video and played in slow motion. I went to collect my lost automobile appendages from the road. Shittiest piece of plastic with a shitty piece of styrofoam inside it. No exaggeration, you could hold the whole thing with one hand. Two fingers even. They've been doing a ton of road work at the intersection, for about a month. It would be nice if the wire could be identified as something the city uses, but I won't hold out hope.
