We Live In The Shadow of the Dinosaur Kings

Driving home from a long trip, I got worried when my gas meter showed that I was very low. I cracked the dashboard display, and wedged a potato chip under the gas gauge, forcing it to stay at quarter full. I drove all day without the need for another refill...

...but this morning, I was woken up by representatives of Standard Oil, demanding that I remove the potato chip immediately.

I wasn't sure exactly what their objections were, but they spoke in stern, authoritative voices, so I did so. Now I need to go get gasoline - my gauge reads that it's at negative one and a half tanks.
