Our constant vigilance here at Observer World Headquarters was rewarded moments ago when, just across the street, we noticed this innocuous maroon compact popping the baddest-ass wheelie we had ever seen. Except that it was just sitting there. Further investigation showed that in fact the car had driven up a telephone pole guy-wire and miraculously balanced on it. The driver was shaken but unhurt. Apparently he had just given plasma, and that combined with the heat caused him to pass out. When he woke up, he said, he was looking at the sky through the windshield. He was happy to talk, but asked that we not use his name, saying, "You guys are going to post it and then say 'Look at this dumbass.'" Obviously a loyal Unfair Park reader. --Rick Kennedy
