Short Cuts: Stuff About Cars in Books About Other Things

“Critical Mass: How One Thing Leads To Another" by Philip Ball (p193)

"How would you feel about spending a whole working week in every year sitting in a box the size of a large cupboard with nothing to do, unable to get up, stretch, sleep, read or watch tv? Well, if you live in Washington DC, Boston or Denver you may be doing that already. And in Los Angeles are likely to be experiencing a full week and a half of it. I'm talking about sitting in traffic jams."
