    My Pontiac in highschool had these. Nicknamed the car Sonic and called turning the AC fan up to 4 "Activate the Spin Dash"
    The pun was the only good thing about that car.

    Every other car I've been in has had a good vent design: can aim and it stays in place, airflow is good and adjustable, etc. I think it's harder to notice good design, and I think that's part of what makes it good.

    the warframe UI is incompetent garbage. pure form over function with tons of wasted space, the need to click or mouse over icons for actual information and an almost gleeful disrespect towards the user experience.

    I'm not sure why it doesn't bother me that it opens to nothing, but it does bother me that it swings in not out.

    About a year after graduating art school up in Chicago I went to visit my former roommate and his girlfriend in their Boystown apartment.

    Now how did two recent graduates who are not rich and not gay end up in such a neighborhood? Well I'm sure the cheap rent they got on their apartment had nothing to do with the bizarre empty triangular room just outside one of their windows that bridged their apartment with two others. It was fucking strange to look out an old wooden windowsill at what looked like a glitch in the matrix as a wooden floor and bulbless ceiling sat in the middle of other people's homes. You could if you wanted open the window, walk across what looked like an abandoned liminal space, and climb in the window to another apartment. Presumably there was a triangle room on every floor. Truly unhinged architecture.

    I can't find any images of it on Google so I've got to assume that the room and all the ghosts that lived in it were gentrified out of the neighborhood before they could be turned into an SCP wiki entry. I've just chalked it up to one of those weird Chicago phenomena like the friend I had who lived in converted Church storage mere feet away from a blue line stop or the same friend who later moved to an apartment in the cemetery themed neighborhood of Ravenswood which refused to show up on Google Maps.

    I may not be able to prove the triangular room existed but it will haunt my mind forever so I've got that.

    I wonder if the triangle room was supposed to be a light well, and then they decided it was too expensive to build like that.

    my partner and i rented a room in a house with one of these doors over the front walk

    opened up directly onto the lack of a balcony, absolutely terrifying

    landlady asked us if either of us were known to sleepwalk
