    Default Large white SUVs

    Have people seen these cars around the streets of their towns and cities? So they are the big, American style, cars that all the people on the wire drive.

    But in white.

    The make does not seem to matter so much, there are Merc and BMW variants, but also other makes like VW or Audi.

    There are literally loads around where I live. I play a game each time I'm out, spotting them, and will usually pick up at least 3 on a short trip out.

    What do they mean?

    Grand Theft Auto does this, throws up clumps of the sane car, probably a similar principle.

    They are a glitch in the matrix. They should be black, but are white. It's like Apple products, but now cars.

    Around the time he began recording his final album, Smith began to display signs of paranoia, often believing that a white van followed him wherever he went.[51] He would have friends drop him off for recording sessions almost a mile away from the studio, and to reach the location, he would trudge through hundreds of yards of brush and cliffs. He started telling people that DreamWorks was out to get him: "Not long ago my house was broken into, and songs were stolen off my computer which have wound up in the hands of certain people who work at a certain label. I've also been followed around for months at a time. I wouldn't even want to necessarily say it's the people from that label who are following me around, but it was probably them who broke into my house."[25] During this period, Smith hardly ate, subsisting primarily on ice cream. He would go without sleeping for several days and then sleep for an entire day.

    Good quote, that can't be mark e. Can't really think of another smith...

    but these things, they're not vans. white vans have their own history and surveillance is definitely in tjere.

    These things....

    They are jeeps/ land rovers, but white, which is incongruous. And the edges are rounded off, softened. Saw at least 10 today in half an hour of walking. There's a variety, some are smaller, there are other colours. But the pinnacle is definitely white, big.

    He had an 'interesting' death too.

    Smith died on October 21, 2003 at the age of 34 from two stab wounds to the chest.[8] At the time of the stabbing, he was at his Lemoyne Street home in Echo Park, California,[85] where he lived with his girlfriend, Jennifer Chiba. According to Chiba, the two were arguing,[40] and she locked herself in the bathroom to take a shower.[86] Chiba heard him scream and upon opening the door saw Smith standing with a knife in his chest. She pulled the knife out, after which he collapsed and she called 9-1-1 at 12:18 pm. Smith died in the hospital with the time of death listed as 1:36 p.m.

    A possible suicide note, written on a Post-it note, read: "I'm so sorryŚlove, Elliott. God forgive me."[8] The name "Elliott" is misspelled as "Elliot" in the coroner's report of the note, but not on the Post-it.[8] While Smith's death was reported as a suicide, the official autopsy report released in December 2003 left open the question of homicide.[8]

    According to Pitchfork, record producer Larry Crane reported on his Tape Op message board that he had planned to help Smith mix his album in mid-November. Crane wrote, "I hadn't talked to Elliott in over a year. His girlfriend, Jennifer, called me [last week] and asked if I'd like to come to L.A. and help mix and finish [Smith's album]. I said 'yes, of course', and chatted with Elliott for the first time in ages. It seems surreal that he would call me to finish an album and then a week later kill himself. I talked to Jennifer this morning, who was obviously shattered and in tears, and she said, 'I don't understand, he was so healthy.'"[87]

    The coroner reported that no traces of illegal substances or alcohol were found in Smith's system at the time of his death but did find prescribed levels of antidepressant, anxiolytic, and ADHD medications, including clonazepam, mirtazapine, atomoxetine, and amphetamine.[88] There were no hesitation wounds, which are typical of suicide by self-infliction.[40] Due to the inconclusive autopsy ruling, the Los Angeles Police Department's investigation remains open.

    SUV contribution to climate change is staggering. I didn't know quite how many cars sold were in this bracket - 1 in every 3 in Europe, and more elsewhere. Kind of mindblowing, as I don't really know anyone who has one...
