ok. What is ape car? I am wildly curious now.

BUCKLE UP THE APE CAR IS THE BEST INVENTION COME OUT OF OUR CAR INDUSTRIES EVER

SO (THIS POST DESERVES CAPSLOCK SORRY

FIRST THING: THIS IS FROM RICHARD’S INSTAGRAM THE APE CAR IS THE VEHICLE IN QUESTION

NOW SINCE U CAN’T SEE IT VERY WELL, I’LL SHOW YOU A PROPER PICTURE:

BASICALLY IT’S THE LOVE CHILD OF A MOTORCYCLE AND A VAN - YOU HAVE THREE WHEELS, THE DRIVING CABIN AND THE TRAILER AND IT WAS PUT ON SALE AFTER WWII BECAUSE PPL WERE TOO POOR TO BUY FOUR-WHEELED CARS AND SO SOME GENIUS AT PIAGGIO THOUGHT ‘HEY BUT WHAT IF WE COPY THE VESPA DESIGN AND SELL A PICK-UP WITH THREE?

AND IT WAS GENIUS BC IT’S STILL PRODUCED TO THIS DAY AND IT WAS IMMEDIATELY V. SUCCESSFUL AND SO EVERYONE IN THE WHOLE COUNTRY BOUGHT ONE

LIKE HONEST THE APE CAR IS THE ONE THING YOU’LL FIND MORE OR LESS IN THE SAME SHAPE FROM THE NORTH TO THE SOUTH, AND OBV IT WAS USED MORE IN THE COUNTRY SO EVERYONE’S GRANDDAD HAS ONE OR KNEW SOMEONE WHO HAD ONE AND PEOPLE STILL GO AROUND WITH APES FROM THE SIXTIES IF THEY KEPT THEIRS WELL. ALSO THEY LOOK SMALL BUT DON’T BE FOOLED THEY’RE PRETTY SPACIOUS AND THEY CAN BE USED FOR IN A LOT OF DIFFERENT WAYS NOT JUST PICK-UP TRUCKS

FOR EXAMPLE

THAT’S A RESTAURANT IN NAPLES, THE OWNER USED TO ACTUALLY MAKE PIZZA ON THE APE CAR ON TOP OF IT AND WENT AROUND PLACES MAKING PIZZA ON THE MOVE AND THEN HE OPENED AN ACTUAL PLACE (THE NAME MEANS JOHNNY TAKE-AWAY BUT IT’S LIKE THE NEAPOLITAN WAY OF SAYING TAKE-AWAY)

THIS DUDE IS A FAMOUS (IN ITALY) FORMER ELEMENTARY TEACHER WHO GOES AROUND PUGLIA IN HIS APE CAR WHICH HAS BEEN RE-DONE TO BE A MOVING LIBRARY AND LENDS BOOKS TO CHILDREN GOING FROM TOWN TO TOWN

AND SOMEONE IN TRANI (IN PUGLIA) COPIED HIS EXAMPLE BECAUSE THEY DID THE SAME

(IT SAYS ITINERANT LIBRARY)

THIS ONE ACTUALLY HAS A BAR/KITCHEN INSIDE LIKE THIS OTHER ONE

THIS WAS USED AS A WEDDING CAR INSTEAD OF THE LIMOUSINE OR WHATEVER

THIS IS A VEGETARIAN RESTAURANT APE CAR

OR YOU CAN TURN IT INTO A PROPER TRAILER

AND IT’S STILL PRODUCED TO THIS DAY :DDDDD

TLDR: THE APECAR (APE MEANS BEE BTW) IS SOME OF THE BEST SHIT WE ITALIANS CAME UP WITH AND IT’S A TRUE STAPLE OF ITALIAN CULTURE

SO MUCH WE ACTUALLY PUT IT IN A VODAFONE ADVERTISING WITH BRUCE WILLIS (IDK WHY THE FUCK DID BRUCE WILLIS MAKE ADVERTISING WITH THE ITALIAN VODAFONE BUT WHATEVS)

LOOK AT HOW BEAUTIFUL THE APE CAR IS :DDD EVERYONE SHOULD KNOW ABOUT IT TBH

You've probably been asked this a lot but are going to go/explore Olly's dad? And your comics are amazing btw

Thank you so much!! in my newest comic strip you get a glimpse of Oliver’s father and what he looked like in a flash back. You also get a snippet of dialogue from him it’s out of context but you can guess what’s going on, he is not a good person

anonymous asked:

Can you sort the show alive Stark kids (including Jon) in terms of their thematical importance and say why you think they are in first, sedond etc place? Jon comes first to me and then I get confused because storywise Bran is way more important than Arya and Sansa but the creators are like "No"

the creators think themes are for eight-graders so

anyway

BOOK VERSE OBV

  1. jon: he is the song of ice and fire. like. prince that was promised = song of ice and fire. ptwp = azor ahai most likely. r+l=j was confirmed. guys. he’s in the fucking title of the series and he’s the closest thing to the mythical hero you have in these books obv he’s jon
  2. bran: resident reinterpretation of the fisher king myth, which in a story set in the middle ages means a whole lot never mind that he’s technically ten luke skywalkers into one person, he’s the most powerful person in westeros probably and 90% of the magic-related storyline is his he’s not the second most thematically important in the whole series just because dany prob is more but
  3. sansa: she and arya are close tbh but I mean sansa’s probably going to do a lot of fundamental political stuff when she comes into her own and overall her actions should have more relevance to the plot
  4. arya: I can’t speculate much because I should take the show storyline for good (and I doubt she ends up killing walder frey rotfl) but I mean arya has a storyline that is great for some themes but not for general themes, the moment she gets reunited with the others she’s going to have an important role in the plot for sure but I doubt thematically she’s more important than the other three
  5. rickon: well as it is his reason of existing plot-wise is being the stark male heir since jon isn’t a stark, bran can’t have children most likely and so on so like my money was on ‘davos gets him to the north, resurrected!jon becomes his regent and he eventually inherits the north but like VERY MUCH OFFSCREEN/POST-SERIES’ so like as it is right now he has relevance in the plot but he hasn’t been a character with lines for three books, until he comes back and I can see if I should change my mind he’s def last

Janie is a spitting image of her mother, not with the brush of freckles across the tops of her cheeks and nose. I do see Rose in her longer face and her frame, but she’s without a doubt a mix of both parents.

Moffy has the same jawline as Lo. Same sharpness. Almost identical features except his green eyes and his dark brown hair. But he’s not Lo.

Truth is, Sulli looks like both of us. Skin tanned from being out in the sun, constantly. Dark hair like mine. Harder jaw. But lips like her mom’s. A delicate nose. Green, soulful eyes.

A thing that works! GTW + GT to make business employees show up at their own shops!!!

I wanted Janie and all of her “employees” to keep their culinary career jobs, so I didn’t want to make them retail employees (because retail employees are useless bums anyway, lol!). But I really wanted to see them “working” at her catering market while I was there with other families. So I made them a club! Their duties are cooking, baking, cleaning, fixing stuff, and socializing. And they’re not allowed to eat, so they don’t eat all of the food they make.

If you look at Janie’s club icon, you can see that she’s playable in the first picture, but not the second because I was controlling another family. But even though I was with another family, all of them showed up on the lot and went to the kitchen to cook! (I had to force them into their cook outfits because they showed up in everyday clothes. But when I get enough points, I can set up a club outfit for them to wear as a uniform.)

Bonus tip: even though Janie and her cooks weren’t selectable, I was able to drag all of the food they made into her inventory so I could keep it and set it for sale when I went back to her. (The food they were making did appear to be deducted from her funds, so I might as well try to sell it and make some money back from it.)

I love how these two packs work together in such cool ways!

Another odd feature of the parallel universe is that although it is invisible from this side, once you are in it you can easily see the world you came from. Sometimes the world you came from looks huge and menacing, quivering like a vast pile of jelly; at other times it is miniaturized and alluring, a-spin and shining in its orbit. Either way, it can’t be discounted.

Janie had an irrational crippling fear of the printers at her workplace. It was a trait that kept her from ever really succeeding in the workplace. 

Little did Janie know that her fear of printers resulting in her doing little work made her a perfect candidate for middle management.
