Patrick Kane describes Jonathan Toews’ driving.

AHAHAHA WON’T EVER NOT LAUGH

MARRIED

THEYRE FUCKING MARRIED

They complain about each other like an old married couple. It’s adorable.

And it’s actually married couple complaints (driving and toilet seat):

From this article:

5 Gadgets that Can Save Your Marriage

Use technology to avoid marital conflict

"How often do you argue with your spouse about driving, the television being too loud, their snoring, the toilet seat being left up, or needing to remind them repeatedly about social engagements? Some gadgets and technologies can help prevent arguments with your spouse!"

1. Problem: Complaints about Leaving the Toilet Seat Up

3. Problem: Complaints about Driving

AND OMG THE OTHER COMPLAINTS FIT, TOO!

2. Problem: Complaints about Forgetting Social and Other Engagements

(Running late is close enough to forgetting for my purposes…)

And Toews’ date for the evening, linemate Patrick Kane, was running late.

"He’s late, but he’s not usually this late," Toews said. "He is taking it way too far. He probably went out to lunch or something."

(x)

4. Problem: Complaints about the TV Blaring

(I’m going to include TV-related complaints…)

Kane: “He has a tough time giving up the remote, which I hate.” (x)

5. Problem: Complaints about Snoring

(Breathing, snoring - same thing…) 

Kane: “He breathes heavy.” (x)

TL;DR… Kane and Toews are married.

This is the kind of strip I always wanted to do more in which it teaches about depression symptoms rather than just watching the characters suffer. For those who are interested, you can read more about the cognitive symptoms of depression here:
Tartakovsky, M. (2013). The Cognitive Symptoms of Depression. Psych Central. Retrieved on May 23, 2014, from http://psychcentral.com/lib/the-cognitive-symptoms-of-depression/00016214
There are obviously more symptoms than I could put into the strip, I would have loved to put in an extra panel on negative thinking, which is particularly destructive for one’s confidence and motivation to do well.

Robin Thicke is unapologetic about how rapey ‘Blurred Lines’ is, meanwhile the dude who parodied it issues a public apology for one word.

And that is just one reason why I love Weird Al.

It’s great that he’s addressed this but are we really supposed to believe that NO ONE during the extremely lengthy processes of writing a song, recording it, mastering it and animating the music video wouldn’t have brought it up?

Excuse me but how the hell is spastic even remotely insulting?

So I just recently learned that in the UK calling someone spastic means the same thing as calling someone retarded, only much worse.
If it makes people in the UK feel any better, people in the US literally do not know this (like literally no one I have ever met and/or know). Here being spastic is usually meant to mean something along the lines of acting like a hyper-active child (like running around in circles yelling just because they feel like it please be quiet for just 2 minutes type of child). NOBODY here uses it as a slur.
Since Weird Al is a US musician and the US music industry is pretty non-international, yeah actually I think its entirely possible that none of the people who worked on this song actually knew that spastic was considered an awful slur in some parts of the world.
And I’m like 99.9999% sure that Weird Al is genuinely very sorry that he was accidentally offensive.

It was only upon rewatching that I realized the parallel between this scene and Eugene’s failed suicide attempt (where he willingly walked in front of a car) and I was awed by the subtle brilliance of it (especially the contrast between the reasons why each character is walking through a busy street - Eugene because he wanted to die, Vincent because he was in love with Irene and was just starting to truly live). However, I was also terrified for Vincent (which I always am during this scene for some reason, even though I know that nothing happens to him - but at the time, realizing the parallel between him and Eugene here kicked that anxiety up to ten, because NO).

Filed under but wow i never noticed that gattaca this scene is my nightmare scenario my eyes suck without my contacts (not as bad but pretty close)
