Happy Valentine’s Day to all my Jewish, Muslim, Disabled, PoC, LGBT+, anyone-a-nazi-would-like-to-pick-on followers! In the words of Wei Ning, “When the long dark closes around us, we will be the last light.”
Talking with a friend at conbust about how frustrating it is when cars don’t notice motorcycles because they don’t think to notice them, like it doesn’t occur to them to register not-car shaped objects one the road.
Another friend pointed out she’d heard people discussing this issue, saying road games like Punch Buggy have people always subconsciously on the lookout for VW Bugs. So the proposed solution is to teach little kids to punch each other when they see motorcycles instead of Beetles, so they can’t help but look for them for the rest of their lives.
And it’s like, man that’s fukken genius. Go make your kids play Punch-Bikey or whatever you wanna call it.
