I might finally get some cool dad points. Despite much ridicule, I've made no secret of the fact that my usual mode of transportation is a minivan.

Practical, if not the hippest thing you've ever seen. Four kids will do that to you.

But now, this.

Google announced today it's gonna build self-driving minivans, 100 of them.

It'll partner with Chrysler to do it. Happy to be a test subject, just sayin'.
