CARS ARE BUGS

  1. I can relate to this. I feel something similar in super/hypermarkets.
    Also it's always nice to see a new comic. I had a pretty rough day and even with it's heavy subject matter it cheered me up. I have no one to talk about these feelings IRL and I don't feel alone now.

    1. No kidding. Right after reading this I walked into a hyvee and all throughout the store there are signs advertising the hyvee fuel saver card with the slogan "fill your cart. Fuel your car."

  4. Bravo. This works for me on so many levels. Really articulates the creeping paranoia of the new millennium as our population grows while our resources dwindle. The technology progresses unabated yet individual human loneliness and isolationism increases. And the interior of a car is the perfect setting to showcase the claustrophobic atmosphere in which we are all living. It's motorphobia meets autophobia.

    1. To be fair, virii aren't considered life by most scientists.

      I really really liked this though.

    2. That's my point. It's a gray area.

  7. Cars are evil, they kill more people than almost anything else man mad, they turn our cities into death traps. They smell, pollute, cause wars, look ugly, waste space.

    1. They also speed up travel by about 30 times normal walking speed, and have probably saved as many lives as they have cost, and have made many other modern technologies possible.

  8. I can relate to this in every way, even the suicidal part. It's funny because people usually want to kill themselves over debt, or a lost loved one, but for me it's due to this extreme paranoia that I suffer of the what the world is turning out to become.

    I thrive on conspiracy theories and it has caused me to keep myself in a very very tight bubble. It's pretty much ruined my life. I don't have a great job, but it does pay the bills - in all honesty I don't even know if I have my job anymore (work for a HUGE corporate retailer) since I haven't been to work in the past 2 weeks because of this anxiety over problems like this. The need to over analyze EVERYTHING ruins me, and my life. It unfortunately is beginning to ruin the life of my girlfriend that lives in the same apartment as I do.

    I don't know what to do. This comic has hit me. Thank you

    1. Please please please get some help. There are programs to help those who can't afford medical attention.
      My mom's the same way, it made my childhood hell. Sometimes I hate her for it.
      And I'm starting to feel the same sort of paranoia. It frightens me.

    This kind of reminds me of Houston

    Love the redirection away from suicide thinking

  10. FYI, both plants and jellyfish can move. Some jellyfish even have eyes.

  11. Maybe it is we that are the bugs. Most of us wander around mindlessly like ants bumping into each other.

  12. According to Buddhists, thinking is the problem. The world wouldn't be as f-ed up if every1 didn't feel the need to feed their giant egos.
    “The more people do, the more society develops, the more problems arise. The increasing desolation of nature, the exhaustion of resources, the uneasiness and disintegration of the human spirit, all have been brought about by humanity’s trying to accomplish something. Originally there was no reason to progress, and nothing that had to be done. We have come to the point at which there is no other way than to bring about a “movement” not to bring anything about.” - Masanobu Fukuoka

  13. This is well done, very Kafkaesque. I recently mentioned to someone that if an alien entity arrived at earth I'm not sure they would regard us as intelligent creatures. More likely, they would comment on how impressive our organization is, just like we do when observing a beehive. About twice a year I go on a long camping trip to remind myself that I can in fact survive without my hive.
