Love that Internet

I went to see Land of the Dead today. When I got out of the theater, I got in my car, put the key in the ignition, and tried to turn it. It wouldn't turn. I drive a black car, and the sun was beating down, and even with the door open and the shades still deployed, I was starting to sweat. I called Lara to see if she had any advice. We compared notes but came up with nothing useful. I hung up and tried for a few more minutes.

Meeting no success, I picked up the phone again to call roadside assistance. I saw that I had missed a call from Lara. I usually keep my phone in silent/vibrate mode. I was just about to call her back when she called me. She had Goggled "ignition key won't move," and found this page:

Within a few seconds, the key turned in the ignition. Love that Internet. Love that wife of mine.

BTW, I liked the movie. The social commentary struck me as a little ham-fisted, but I did enjoy seeing what George A. Romero could with something approaching a Hollywood budget. (I read that the film cost $15 million to make. Pretty modest by today's standards, but quite a bit more than any of his previous Zombie flicks had behind them.)
