Entrenched behaviours

This is a screenshot of a forum posting. A person has lost their driver's license and so is wondering where to buy a small helicopter. Seriously: Where to look to buy a helicopter?

Anything, anything but riding public transport, or car-pooling. Or Heaven forbid, cycling.

Evidence of the on-going Financial Apocalypse

The Take 5 cafe in the Metrotown Mall has a sign near the cash register that says We are no longer accepting any U.S. currency. The sign is not hand-written; it has the official Take 5 logo on it and everything.

Unrelated: my calendar tells me that today is L. Ron Hubbard's birthday.
