The best way to see an intersection

It shouldn't surprise anyone that my official welcome back to Seattle was nearly getting run down by another asshole turning left in an intersection just after I got off the bus near my apartment. Intersections are quickly becoming my least favorite places, because people who drive just don't seem to care that they could kill someone, it's just so important to get to that next store to buy that next pair of shoes. Fuck them all.

I can't deny, though, that intersections and interchanges are beautiful from a design standpoint. I first noticed it during a CGI short on Liquid Television. It was just a plain intersection, but the crosswalks formed a perfect box with matching diagonal striped sides. It was beautiful and it made me realize that there is always beauty everywhere, even in the ugliest places.
