I was chatting with the abovementioned coworker tonight when we had this IM conversation:
[23:00] me: I'm trying to decide whether it's worth the effort to get my car off of the street.
[23:01] him: yeah... you should make sure it's safe and sound
[23:01] him: I have two words for you...
[23:01] him: LA riots
[23:01] me: Right.
[23:01] me: OK, off I go.
He was right. In a fit of healthy paranoia, I moved my car off of the street and into the garage. I think the odds of anything happening here are very low, but it was worth five minutes of my time.
