Design vs. Users
this is on the way to become my most boosted status
@NekoSock Too be fair, those zigzagging slide looks don’t look like they would be fun to slide down. In fact, it looks like it could be a bumpy and uncomfortable ride.
@lucky someone suggested they might be too hot 🤔
@NekoSock Even worse!
@NekoSock To be fair, it looks like a really shit slide.
@NekoSock I just loved that !
@NekoSock Sort of reminds when kids get a big, exciting present and end up making a den out of the cardboard box it came in. I wonder what the psychology of that is - did one child start sliding and the rest copied ?
@andyc Maybe making "secret shelters" out of cardboard boxes is a "natural thought process", after all, cats do it too 🤔
For the slide, someone suggested it might be too hot with the sun and all, you do see a few kids standing in the shadows. But yeah, some amount of herd behaviour might be involved in this, too.
@NekoSock This is why authoritarian programming languages like Rust exist...
@thor But clearly the kids are having more fun off the slide
@NekoSock Yes, I didn't mean "authoritarian" as a compliment
@professortom That's another good one!
GIF description: Twisty slides in a children's playground. To get to the slides the kids must climb a steep concrete hill. All the kids are ignoring the actual slides and instead are sliding down the hill.

😮 such a relatable feeling!
