I Outran a Prius Today

Today somewhere in the metropolitan area, man defeated machine. A stoplight turned red, placing a Prius (Latin; meaning “before”) and I (on foot) next to each other. The light then turned green, and the “walk” signal lit up. I took off running. I tore that pedestrian lane up. It was a race across the intersection, and I won. I was already a good two, three steps onto the sidewalk before that thing caught up to me. Looks like I beat it at its own game, before it even knew that it was playing its own game. But it still doesn’t change my belief that machines will eventually destroy us.
