Yeah, how silly. If people in Boston panicked every time the earth opened up and sprouted flames from giant craters, downtown traffic would be even worse than it already is. No, we like to reserve our mass hysteria for the really important things
. Huge crater in the road, you just gun it and hope you hit Satan.
And of course the Mass DMV doesn't have any oh what are they called... generators for their data center. No, the DR plan is roll over and die.
*blink* In my brain, "Disaster Recovery" when applied to the RMV would *be* shutting it down. So it sort of worked out correctly. (Granted, the followup would be to replace it with something efficient, but hey... close enough for government work. ;)
In case of Anarchy, break glass!

Don't forget the exciting possibility of being creamed by a loose ceiling panel as you drive through one of our tunnels.
I swear, if it weren't for our glorious weather no one would ever want to live here.
*sigh* A-gain?? This is three times that I recall off the top of my head, and I'm not sure that includes the dog that got electrocuted walking across an ordinary grate.
Damn straight, we roll our eyes and keep driving. We have the luxury to "never attribute to malice what can be explained by stupidity."
