And go far, far away:
A 12-year-old boy who was apparently trying to drive across Australia has been stopped by police 1,300km (800 miles) into his journey.
The boy was pulled over in Broken Hill in the New South Wales outback on Saturday after a patrol noticed the car's bumper dragging on the ground.
Police said the boy had been attempting to drive 4,000km from Kendall in NSW to Perth, Western Australia.
Just woke from a dream about a film regarding the limits of economic development in the Depression-era American Southwest, starring Don Knotts. My brain cobbled the dream together from diverse Facebook posts about sin, Stuckeys, trains, radio, the nouveau riche, and the Donner Party. I think my brain needs more sleep.
