Awful design

Hmm, it looks like it’s not embedding.

There we go



So - someone actually came up with that design, it went through various levels of development and approval, and there weren’t enough people in that chain that recognized how terrible the idea was to kill it?


So…how Trump became the GOP candidate in 2016


except in the UK

I hadn’t clicked on any of the links, so maybe this was already obvious to everyone - but my wife just pointed out that it is supposed to look like the UK flag.

Agree. The Union Jack has been a big part of the Mini brand. They’ve put it on the side mirrors, and on the roof of cars. I get it.

I wonder if they just got so caught up in that branding that they only saw the flag and couldn’t see the arrow. Or maybe they saw the arrow and said screw it, let’s do it anyway.

Almost nothing, a few oil towns like Midland/Odessa and an interesting city called Fredericksburg where people still speak German and brew all sorts of beer. College towns like Abilene, Lubbock, and Amarillo. If I’m not mistaken the speed limit is something super high like 80 or 85 mph.

It isn’t as sparse as Wyoming but you can drive for long stretches without seeing any other vehicles on I-10.

So that’s where the chainsaw massacres happen if you were to choose
