person: Pokemon is such a childish game, why are you playing it?
ARE YOU KIDDING ME
Fluxy Kim in a fluxy flower field, drawn for the wonderful superforsooth!
here’s a fun activity for those rainy days or whatever
draw the shape of the head with your non-dominant
then draw the details with your normal hand
Hang on, there is a bit of radiation in here, I’m just gonna have to put this on. Don’t worry about it. (x)
can somebody explain me this gif?
IT MEANS THAT CYCLISTS DON’T GIVE A FLYING FUCK ABOUT TRAFFIC LIGHTS AND IT MAKES THE REST OF THE UNIVERSE SO FUCKING MAD SERIOUSLY
i take it none of you have ridden a bike in an urban area
as someone who’s both an experienced car driver and someone who rides a bicycle as part of my job, let me tell you why this ad really sucks
traffic lights and laws, as they are now, cater exclusively to car drivers. this is all well and good when you live in a low-density area. but when you live in a high-density area, walking or cycling is preferred. you’re also probably dealing with some poorer populations who don’t have the money to get a car, and rely on their bikes to get around. if you bike in a hillier city, good luck keeping up momentum trying to follow every single traffic law. it’s exhausting! it makes zero sense to cater exclusively to cars and to not separate bike and car lanes, keeping separate traffic laws, lights, signage, etc. for each. as a driver, i hate having to choose between a cyclist’s life and another car’s space in the other lane. as a cyclist, riding next to cars who sometimes try to sideswipe you or drive you off the road is terrifying.
on a serious and related note, i don’t know about you, but i’d so much rather get hit by a cyclist than a car. if a cyclist is hit by a car, the cyclist comes away with, at best, serious injuries and a destroyed bike. at worst, the cyclist fucking dies. the driver comes away with some dents in their car, maybe a cracked windshield. hitting someone with a bike gets both parties away with some injuries and a court date. hitting someone with a car is a life or death situation.
and no, you can’t ride your bike on the damn sidewalk.
but despite all this, despite the class and safety implications of NOT letting bikers do their thing in a protected space, there are cities and drivers out there that have this ad’s holier-than-thou attitude towards bikers. cops love ticketing bikers. drivers, as i mentioned earlier, think they own the road and may try to kill you because you’re “in the way.” you can’t ride on the sidewalk or you may hit pedestrians.
and as a driver, blaming the victim for getting hit by a car is, frankly, disgusting, and speaks to your laziness behind the wheel.
fuck ads like this. don’t yell at bikers for trying to navigate, yell at the careless fucking drivers who kill them instead of looking over their shoulder a second time before making a turn. and fix your fucking biking laws!
It’s Monday again. Do you need a pick-me-up? Have some hilarious quotes from The Lego Movie. You’re welcome and everything is awesome.
Amazing blog, I highly recommend that you guys check them out. A different artist is drawing each of the original 151 Pokemon.
(I wish they’d do all 721 Pokemon.. they always seem to only do the Pokemon from Gen I..)
