MMT has been taking potshots at Millennials for a few years in this blog. After all it’s great sport to see generation ‘selfie’ suddenly realise the world, nay, universe doesn’t actually revolve around their sense of entitlement. MMT has particularly enjoyed poking fun Millennial’s preferred form of communication the infographic. It’s a well take on the aphorism that a picture says a thousand words.
Occasionally, MMT happens upon one that is genuinely amusing or informative. Today’s infographic falls into the former category. The visual is self-explanatory and here in Australia should have been accompanied by a ‘slip, slop, slap’ message of some kind. There’s nothing funny about having serious skin cancer.
MMT reckons he saw this pop up in on the FLAB Facebook page. Although it looks like The Joy Divison liberated it first. The visual has stuck in MMT’s head, as his directeur sportiff, Mrs MMT, had commented how deeply tanned MTT’s legs were, hence the thoughtful and artistic addition to the graphic 😉 MMT is also big fan of zinc across the cheeks and nose. As Banksy once wrote “The bad artists imitiate, The great artists steal – PicassoBanksy Marv ;-)”
MMT has been a busy, busy boy since his last blog in late last month. A brief cold, trip to Perth, progressively increasing work and his daughter’s second birthday have all been massive distractions to the serious work of blogging. Those factors have also meant quite a bit less cycling than he would of liked.
Nevertheless, this is a lame attempt at doing a quick blog on the subject of infographics. This one is sourced from the US via the Atlanta Bicycle Coalition.
Its an effective sales pitch. MMT is feeling a little jipped, He hasn’t lost the 13lbs these guys claim that a commuter would lose. Mind you that probably has a lot to do with MMT’s love of milk based coffee and the chocolates his wife keeps in the fridge 😉
Work has been ridiculousily busy with a never ending stream of meetings. TUnfortunately this doesn’t leave alot of time for blogging and skiving off. Alas, the joys of having a new role in new org structure that is finding its way. Nevertheless, MMT saw this wonderful, if somewhat self serving infographic on FLAB Facebook the other day, and thought that it was worth sharing. The original can be found here, please don’t sue me Chain Reaction 😉
The obvious message is that cycling is good for you, go ride.
Until next time, ride safe
PS Go Simon Yates (Mitchelton-Scott), Go you good thing…3 wins in the Giro sensational!!!
It has been a while since MMT posted a good cycling infographic. Happily, MMT stumbled across one, yesterday, in the FLAB group on Facebook. Some FLABer must have seen it on Twitter. As a happy plagiarist, MMT provides a link to the original content here Copenhagen Cycling Signals. MMT particularly likes the disapproval and bike stolen signals.
