Transponders are magic ()

Last night's dreams:
  • For some reason they made a feature-length movie of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. For some reason my family dragged me to see it. For some reason I actually enjoyed it. (Scary!) The plot centered around there being some ancient evil unkillable spirit that was held in very deep cryostorage and which one of the responsible ponies had to check on it once a month; then one of the stupid ponies (who didn't know about it) accidentally unleashed it on the world.
  • For some reason I had parked my car on the NMSU campus, but forgot where I'd parked it. The "keep locking the doors and hear the horn honk" trick wasn't working, but then I noticed my key had a headphone jack and a "map" button. Pressing this button would cause a synthesized voice to tell me how far away I was from the car — but in units of how much longer I had to walk at my current rate assuming I was walking straight for it. So the value kept on fluctuating between "ten minutes" and "two weeks," making it useless. As I woke up I wondered how hard it would be to add this feature to a car for real (using active transponders or whatever) until I realized that I already have this.

    I'm really, really hoping for a feature length "Friendship is Magic" movie!
