Another example of a high IQ congresswoman
Given an opportunity to ride in a driverless, automatic car, Eleanor Holmes Norton managed to immediately screw up. As Ace describes it:
She got in. She observed a big red button on the central panel of the car. The button was plainly marked, in large letters, "Emergency Stop."
So she did what any three year old would do: She punched the button. Like, immediately.
The Emergency Stop button disables the car, an engineer explained to her a second later. Being an Emergency Stop and all.
So the car stopped working -- in fact, she didn't even get to ride in it at all. She immediately rendered it nonworking after sitting in the passenger seat for just a few seconds."
