The System 472: Road Sage
UPDATE: The Quirky Nomads Podcast has made this comic into a radio production! More info here »
ALSO: Now avaiable as an 11×17 print! Check it out here.
This is a followup to one of the more popular comics in the archive, famously featuring “figure out purple”.
Hitting conflict in the face with more conflict never seems to help, as both sides immediately identify the other as the enemy and shut off any ability to listen to reason. But confronting conflict with the unexpected produces unexpected results. This works not only while biking but on forum “flame wars”, on the phone, and hell, maybe even in times of war.
I’d like to point out where this comic starts, “when someone yells at you from their car”. People piss each other off on the road all the time, cyclists and motorists alike. Both, when breaking the law, are wrong. This is NOT about breaking the law (see this comic if you wanted it), it is instead about when people are angry at each other. Feel free to debate in the comments as you will.
UPDATE: Thanks for all the love on the comic! If you like it, you can buy it as a signed print in the HilariAwesome.com store. BUY A PRINT NOW »
