Weird parking & unfortunate plates?

When I got home, there were a surprisingly large number of open parking spaces. About 5-10 times as many as usual for ~8:15pm. I wonder why. Very odd.

On the way home, I saw a German car (Audi A4) with the California license plates, "UBER". Is it just me or is that rather unfortunate? I guess its association with facism is called out as misidentification by Wikipedia, but it's an association that's there nonetheless. I have to wonder if it was a deliberate Aryan statement (boo! hiss!) by the owner of the car or if it was just ... an unfortunate choice. Perhaps they're a fan of the works of Friedrich Nietzsche...
