bluhaus replied to your post “I’m way too organized with my finances and budget for a 20 year old. ”

Wanna do my budget? (Actually mine is fine, I just need more capital and to spend less.) But don’t ever think that’s a bad thing. When you get to travel and other young folk are “Jealous”-ing at you, you will feel like a god.

Haha I never said it was a bad thing. Just very uncommon. But I probably think about money more than is good for me. It’s just that I have about 6 weeks until I start a three month, full-time, unpaid internship and I want to get ahead on my savings goals so I’m not screwed when I’m done with the internship (not to mention I have to buy a ton of gear for it).

But, yeah, I have the same issue. I have no problem saving money but it’s the getting it in the first place that is the issue. And I’m also trying to make sure I don’t get too focused on earning money for future adventures that I don’t even enjoy current college adventures.  

Yeah, I have an excel sheet on Google docs with a savings tracker and I am going to add more for more goals and I just am trying to be more proactive about savings and having capital for things i like to do.

Roger Rabbits special effects still fucking hold up by todays standards AND looks better than most films that come out NOW it was that ahead of its time

I’m still amazed that Hoskins had that little to work with. Everything about this video is awesome.

This made my day.

Bob Hoskins is a man who knows his blocking.

yes. I am here for this - downplay Europe like they downplay Asia and Africa. I refuse to recognize Europe as a true continental mass. #notsorry

Europe is Far West Asia and will now be referred to as such.

I always thought it was funny that Europe was the only continent that didn’t begin with “a.”

Do you think traffic fatalities would go down if every city and state had a map like this one?

Here’s our tracker of fatal traffic crashes in New York City in 2014, and our story on how we got the data. 
If you have additional information about any crash listed, or know of a crash we’re missing, please email us transponation@gmail.com.


I want this for Philly. Or maybe even a cycling specific map showing where cyclists have been hit at all by cars.

BIKING CITIES:  Planning for bike lanes in U.S. cities

Six U.S. cities have been chosen by a leading bicycle advocacy group to receive guidance with creating protected cycling lanes. Atlanta, Boston, Denver, Indianapolis, Pittsburgh, and Seattle were selected from 100 applicants by the Green Lane Project, according to its sponsor, PeopleForBikes. Each will receive financial, strategic and technical assistance.

Many urban bike lanes are designated by nothing more than white stripes or green-colored pavement. The lack of any barriers leaves riders vulnerable to collisions with autos that routinely breach their lanes.

The Green Lane Project emphasizes safer designs. It uses curbs, planters and other dividers to physically separate bike and vehicular traffic. The project says separate bike lanes can reduce injuries for cyclists, drivers and pedestrians by up to 50 percent.

In 2012 and 2013, the project worked with Austin, Chicago, Memphis, Portland, San Francisco and Washington, DC, to create dedicated bike lanes. Those efforts helped to nearly double the number of protected urban bike lanes in the U.S. to 142.

Life tips of living near roads.

1. Look before you walk into the street. This applies if you are: a.) crossing the street. b.) coming around your car to open the door. c.) joining traffic as a cyclist. d.) about to walk down a bike lane.
2. DO NOT WALK IN A BIKE LANE.
3. If you are in a car, you are never allowed to drive/be in a bike lane. This applies even if: a.) it will turn into into a turning lane eventually. b.) you are just stopping for a second to drop something off.
4. Wait the couple of seconds to allow a cyclist or car to pass before opening your door. 
5. If there is not enough room to safely pass a cyclist, don’t. Just don’t.
6. If you are driving, do not honk at cyclists. We know you need to get home/to work. We do too. That is why we are there: going home/to work. We would like to get there while still living.
