News post – Catch-23 No. 886 Self-driving flypaper

Because living in the future wasn’t quite bizarre enough, Google have patented the pedestrian flypaper feature for their self-driving vehicles. The idea is that if a person is hit by one of these cars, they would stick to the vehicle rather than bouncing away and suffering secondary injuries from hitting the road or other vehicles. There’s supposed to be some coating that stops objects sticking until impact, but I reckon you’ll just spend all your time removing random junk that has gotten stuck to your driverless car while you were in the supermarket.
