StrobingTailLights

Don't you just hate those newfangled LED-based tail-lights that are starting to show up on buses and trucks and other big vehicles nowadays? Those lights are unnaturally bright, for one thing, and seem too red --- but what's worse, they flicker many times per second so when you move your eyes there's a trail of stuttered afterimages. Ugly! ...

And speaking of which, aren't those flashing strobe lights on school buses annoying? Eye-catching they are, but only at first while they're quasi-unique novelties. Now they're appearing on Post Office vans and all sorts of other moving objects, and most of the time they're invisible, like billboards and TV commercials, because of their ubiquity. What a waste of time ...

And while I'm ranting, how about that "fire" stuff? Mighty dangerous, if you ask me --- and likely to get out of control and destroy the planet. Mark my words, young fella ....
