- The engine is on fire.
- Someone is fixing it. We trust her to do that, because we are
busy throwing sharp things at the people next to us, unless she

very fast to get there first or they will stop us or cut us off.
- If you’re at all close to us, you’re going to get hit by
something. You don’t want to be beside us. You definitely don’t
