In the VW scandal, diesel emissions controls were designed to work only when the car was stationary and the testing equipment was plugged in. When the car left the testbed and hit the road, proprietary VW software—out of the view or control of regulators—would disable the system. The result: peppier performance and far worse emissions for 500,000 cars on U.S. roads and perhaps 11 million worldwide. Similar scandals are now emerging at Mitsubishi and perhaps other carmakers.

It turns out that aliens are considerate. They seldom disturb earthlings during working or sleeping hours. Rather, they tend to arrive in the evening, especially on Fridays, when folks are sitting on the front porch nursing their fourth beer.
