Just seen the new Transformers movie. Pretty good, and not disappointing if you are a child of the eighties.

One fatal flaw that every movie with a car theme seems to repeat is the process of hotwiring a car. The hero reaches under the dashboard, pulls out two wires, usually red and blue, and as if by magic, the car starts. They drive off in a plume of blue smoke, and after saving the day, Roy Rogers drives off into the sunset with Grace Kelly. Or was that Gary Cooper..?

What really happens is any or all of the following.

A. Nothing,
B. A fuse blows
C. The airbag fires.
D. Your favourite "Top Gear Anthems" CD is replaced with a pan pipe compilation.
E. All of the above
F. None of the above.
G. Who cares anyway.

Ok, so I'm reading too much into this. I'm off to lie down.

Pan miles so far - Forgot to look...
