In movies, a car will explode if you look at it wrong. So I wonder, if
hydrogen cars become popular, and it is safer, what will the movie
industry do? Could they stand to script a car to fall several hundred
feet and *not* explode on contact? Would the American public be
satisfied to only see something smashed to bits, not smashed to bits and
blown up? Only time will tell, but my guess is no.
