It implies no such thing. Having a car crushed is the typical response when it's a write-off i.e. the cost of repair exceeds its value. So if we are to infer anything, it would be that the car was a write-off due to an armored vehicle having driven over it.

I'm also thinking publicity stunt as it all seems rather staged.

This will help nothing against criminal parking, it will just advocate tank-proof-cars and tank-bars for the middle class.

That is not a tank. An armored vehicle, yes. But not a tank.

(It looks like a BTR-60 or a BTR-94.)

Quick question: If I were to, hypothetically speaking, accidentally pour coke on my mouse, though it keeps working fine, but the mousewheel feels sticky/annoying so I wash out the inside of the mouse with water by pouring water into the cracks betweem the buttons then pouring them back out repeatedly like 3-4 times, approximately how long would I have to wait before I can safely assume the mouse is dry on the inside so that I can safely connect it to the USB port on my computer without fear of damage to my mouse?

That avatar of yours is mesmerizing. What a guy. [If I do this in every post from now on, will people start highlighting everything just in case?]

It is one of the first avatars I used, before Xocrates did the Modern NeoAce arty via T-Shirt contest.

I won't highlight it, as I can read most of it without doing so.

I suppose it penalises people with wider screens.

New chiptune mix by Henry Homesweet on Soundcloud.

Essential Chipmix 2011

(Can be downloaded here: http://www.last.fm/music/Henry+Homesweet )

Like the 2010 Mix I posted here last year, this is a must for any fans of chiptune or dance music.

No Trash80 this year, but still bloody brilliant, over an hour long but really strong throughout.
