Plus, what the actual fuck was up with England's football game tonight? I'm usually disinterested in football and only watch the World Cup for South African culture and Denmark games, but I was very unimpressed with the Englad team tonight. 0-0? Disgraceful.
|The Audi A4 has an angry face >:(|
So, cars have faces? Yeah, they do. I was on the bus today and kept seeing different faces on cars, and it hit me that it wasn't just my overactive imagination; cars really are designed to have faces. No, not a conscious decision by the designers, but something which just happens. It started back with old wind-up cars, with two lights on either side of the bonnet. I guess the inspiration came from humans, because one light was for either side.
But unfortunately we've now got stuck in the whole two-lights thing and so each car evolves a face. Whether it's an angry face, like the Audi A4; or an innocent face like some Nissans, each car has its personality. And since you're trusting it with your life, you'd want it to have a personality. You'd need to develop a relationship with it, and you can't do that with a piece of metal. Whilst you may not recognise it consciously as a face, your brain is warming to the car - it's one of us.
