When the power goes out, all stoplights are supposed to convert to four-way stop signs -- but in Hollywood, nobody can count that high.
Los Angeles blacked out this afternoon for reasons to be determined (a cut cable?). Xeni Jardin on BoingBoing predicted traffic problems in Hollywood because no one can count very high (unless, she said, the numeral is preceded by the words "Star Wars Episode"). I have another suggestion. People in Hollywood can count pretty high in Roman numerals: I, II, III, IV, V, VI, VII. (Star Trek anyone?)
