It’s not a natural disaster. It’s freakin anti-virus software popping up a tiny window at the lower right edge of the screen (that won’t allow the user to click on anything with a mouse) right as the timer to cancel nuclear war reaches 5,4,3,2,1, launch.

Car for your time: (or not. Kinja won’t let me add a photo. So just imagine a nice burnt orange Toyota Crown - Modified with a larger front lip & lowered onto 18" brushed aluminum rims)
