A true geek can’t help themselves. Every time — every time — the garage door is closing, you’ve got to duck out under it as per Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark; for some reason I keep remembering it’s his hat he retrieves, not his whip.
But malfunctioning technology kills my inner child. Every time the collision detector fires off (which it does fairly often, even when it hasn’t collided with anything) and the garage door opens again – beeping – a little part of me dies.
I think it’s the “Raiders” takeoff on the Simpsons that makes that particular memory for me. Bart retrieves his red hat from under the garage door. I was surprised at the whip thing, too.
