Americans Love Their Cars to Death

Posted by on Tue, Feb 12, 2013 at 7:32 AM

The only thing I can see in this timelapse of Nemo that Chase Jarvis posted on his website?

Snow falling on cars, cars buried in snow, and American humans exhuming cars from their graves of snow.

As opposed to what, American birds exhuming cars from their graves of snow?

Good point Charles... and I love how your comments on the video cause me to look at it with more open eyes. To try and see past my own cultural blinders. We are a culture that prioritizes our ability to move about freely. Perhaps we have become so specialized that being unable to exchange goods is kind of like a blocked artery in the body that can lead to great difficulty, illness, and even death. Yet we little cells of a bigger organism are perhaps not yet aware that we are a part rather than a whole?

This now autoplays in my RSS feed, which it never did before. Fascinating.

I see citizens clearing walkways so pedestrians don't have to walk in the street.

The magical miracle of public transportation has its flaws in inclement weather too.

Ah that dystopia you mistake for a utopia--the city--is still limp when faced with the power of nature.

I spent my childhood digging out cars and parking spaces.
