Today I learned about the "Carolina Squat". I saw a "squatted" truck for the first time last week, but I just thought the truck was broken. It apparently has a name and people do it on purpose. Truck people are weird...

See that pattern of holes? LED tx in one side, receiver/sensor in the other. It knows which blades are deployed and displays the total.


I won't be rushing out to buy one.
