This final note on the way out:
Google is working on self-driving cars, as you know. They're also, apparently, working on self-honking cars. The company wrote in its most recent update of the Google Self-Driving Car Project that it's teaching its cars when to honk, when to just give a little toot and when to really lean into it.
Their goal, they say, is for their cars to be polite, considerate and only honk when it makes driving safer for everyone.
They just don't really get the whole honking thing, do they?
