Signs the world is coming to an end.

As I was heading up into the mountains on my road bike today I saw one of those billboard trucks, the kind whose sole purpose is to drive around and be seen so that the advertisement it is literally trucking around can get some eyeballs on it. This particular billboard truck was carting around an ad for a wallmart that opened up way east of town. Am I the only one who sees the problem here? A truck was driving around Boulder for no other purpose than to advertise a wallmart that opened up that's not even in Boulder. I give up. Seriously.

p.s. Getting pelted with rain while descending a mountain on your bicycle at approximately 40 mph really hurts. Not my favorite thing in the whole world.

Yeah. WalMart sucks. So they're driving a truck around spewing crap in the air to advertise a store that pretty much no one in Boulder would go to if it were next door, much less miles away. I mean, Boulder folk don't seem the WalMart type. I could be wrong, though.
