Wile E Coyote

At first I thought there had been yet more roadside garbage dumping along my favorite cycling route. Then I realized that someone has a sense of humor—the mailbox is real and has been there a long time. The box trap is the new addition. For those who forget their cartoons, Wile E. Coyote is from Roadrunner.

Wile E. Coyote often obtains complex and ludicrous devices from a mail-order company, the fictitious Acme Corporation, which he hopes will help him catch the Road Runner. The devices invariably fail in improbable and spectacular ways. Whether this is result of operator error or faulty merchandise is debatable. The coyote usually ends up burnt to a crisp, squashed flat, or at the bottom of a canyon (some shorts show him suffering a combination of these fates).

Image detail from the 12MP iPhone 6s Plus is atrociously poor compared to a a real camera (results seem to vary widely for reasons I do not grok), but it captures the moment. Here I’s say its 12MP camera captured at best about 3MP of detail.
