Boston MBTA Pocket Subway Map Cover, 1989

“The ‘T’: One of Boston’s Last Great Bargains” proclaims this neat little pop-arty pocket map cover. Five of the six colours used in the design make sense (representing the four lines of the “T” plus purple for commuter rail), but what’s the yellow for? Making up the numbers in the days before the Silver Line, it seems.

EDIT: My readers are awesome! Thanks to those who have pointed out that yellow was (and still kind of is) used to represent buses in the MBTA network, which explains its appearance here rather nicely.

These days everyone knows that you can’t take advertisements at face value.  Photoshop, misleading wording, deliberate omission of certain facts – all frequent techniques that advertisers use to toe the line while they’re pushing their product down your throat.  Of course, sometimes that toe crosses the line – or rather, sometimes a company blows that line away with a bazooka.

With the help of the Don Draper of image manipulation AuntieMeme, here are those companies with egg on their face with a bazooka in hand.

Many of these baffle me – how can they think “you should be able to realize we’re lying” is a valid legal defense?

I need your guys’ help. I hope she would be able to see this. A little to the back story -

As strange as fate can be, I was going on a subway ride with a drawing of David Tennant in my arms. I was about to meet him at that night. Upon entering I noticed this girl who I thought was attractive. She has something unique to her look and of course she was beautiful. I’m sadly a hopeless romantic, as you can see. You know how it goes on subway- strangers come and go. But then I saw that she had a Tardis phone case. I knew I had to compliment it so I did and showed her my David Tennant drawing which she took a picture of. You have no idea how glad I was, to have something in common with someone I thought stood out the most of all those subway people.

Unfortunately I left and that was it. I was mad at myself for not asking her for her number. Due to some strange coincidences happening recently I decided to try to reach out to her

It would mean a lot to me if you guys could help by reposting this ❤️ I will follow every one who helps
