I’ve just re-watched the final sprint in the Tour of Turkey. It certainly does look like Daryl Impey was dragged down. If proven (and it’s hard to see what the defence might be) – then action needs to be taken – we cannot allow this behaviour to go unchallenged.
If you’re not familiar with Watchmen, I may need to explain — well, before I finish that, I will encourage you to buy Watchmen right now and go read it. I’m serious. Don’t even eat or pee or anything until you’re done. It’s that good. There’s a reason nearly every comic geek in the world swears it’s one of the all-time greatest books, you know.
Okay, now that you’ve finished reading it, go ahead and eat and pee.
Okay, now it’s totally normal for you to want to pick the book right back up again and start over, making sure you digest every single available detail in each panel. You won’t catch everything, but that’s okay; re-reading Watchmen is something certain geeks do, and every time we go behind the mask we find something we’ve never seen before.
Okay, now that you’ve eaten and peed, and read the book again, I don’t need to tell you what I was going to tell you, because now you see it in the video.
…I know, right?!
I’ve read the Watchmen, and I can confirm that it’s excellent – if they’ve done the film right – and everything I’ve seen so far implies that that have, then this should be a phenomenon (do-do, de do-do).
“This is an awareness test.” Do The Test.
This public awareness spot is from Transport for London as part of their freshly introduced cycle safety campaign aimed at reducing the number of cyclists hurt on London’s roads. Effective use of the concept of inattentional blindness to illustrate the point – cyclists are easy to miss, watch out.
This is the second test.
