Lucky Accident


This is old news, but nobody I know knew about it, so there's a good chance most of you didn't either. Not everything that can go wrong does. Sometimes you get a lucky accident.

And I know you probably expected something else this week, but quite frankly it's becoming difficult to joke about all the terrible shit happening right now, so I'll focus on more positive things. Expect to see a lot more of Sister America for a while.

Any chance you'd consider Sister America starting to wear a pink hat with kitty ears?....

(such a hat is called by a slightly different name here...)

Thank you.

Thankyouthankyouthankyouthankyouiloveyouthankyouthankyouthankyou!

Thank you for deliberately looking elsewhere than Washington and the utter clusterf*** happening there. For months, every day has brought some new terror (that, until two weeks ago, was merely "imminent"), so much so that I'm almost completely desensitized now...I should still be getting terrified; but it's just lapsed into constant low-grade fear and loss of energy. Don't even have enough left to get indignant, and there's not a way in he'll the actual news can be laughed off.

So thank you, SATW, for giving a defeated Texas Liberal something to smile about.

Nothing wrong is happening. Everything is fine. I'm not in denial. I'm fine. Everything is perfectly fine.

I still hate Teslas. But that's because I am a mechanical engineer.

YOU CAN TAKE MY RIP-ROARING V8 ENGINE FROM MY COLD, DEAD, HANDS!!!

seriously though, electric cars don't fix the problem unless your power source is clean, like nuclear or renewables. In fact if the electricity is generated by coal-fired power plants, it's worse than a normal internal-combustion engine car. And that doesn't take into account the lithium mining and processing, and all the other toxic materials used to make batteries, and recycling them...

This topic really interests me, I've written papers on it.

Fun to take a break from all of the bad shit going down in EU and America right now, I came here for history in comics, not current shitty events. This made me laugh! Let's see more of this!

Yeah, it's hard to really joke about what Carrotman's done in his first month as president. He's been trying to find ways to weed "disloyalists" out of government positions; he's been giving key positions to loyalists with the express purpose of them gutting the departments they're in charge of; we're all well aware that he's drummed up quite a few scapegoats for all the country's woes... All of this before he's even started his second month in office.

But hey, at least we know he isn't going to build a secret police force.

...That was taken care of for him by Dubya.

Looking more and more, every day, like the US has elected its first genuinely fascist dictator.

Sister America represents the non-horrible parts of America? ... that's really fitting, I'm down with that!

Man this comic doesn't even cover half of the accidental safety the tesla has...

During the crash test (a different one) the whole front of the car acted as a crumple zone, because it didn't have a big bulky engine in it, thus making it far safer to crash in.

Then, during a crush test, the frame of a tesla was SO sturdy, it BROKE the machine it was testing on.

The tesla is the only car in existence to get a rating of 11... out of a possible 10.
