If the San Andres fault ever totally lets go, being in Sacramento isn't going to help much, the whiplash will just fling you into Nevada.
DMV test reminds me of a episode on TAXI, where Jim is cheating on his DMV test with Alex. Stuck on a question, Alex sits near him under a "no talking to those testing" sign, tells him the answer was "slower", so Jim confused keeps repeating the question to him across the room, Slower, and slower, each time he tells him the answer to the question was "slower". It was one of those really funny situations that made you giggle more each time. Jim just keep repeating the question to Alex Slooooooooooooooooower each time.
