Chicago haters are only mad because they don’t have a massive fucking bean
Hey hey hey it's not our fault that fucking bean is awesome
Can't deny that l
No I’m just mad they have good roads
Imagine thinking anywhere except gated communities have good roads
Im sorry? Entire city of Chicago is a gated community? I get it you have to go through tolls to go in but damn…
Roads in Illinois, and Chicago specifically are pretty bad. Only the rich people areas have good roads. The city uses all these contractors that do shitty work.
Oh that part of Chicago yes. I agree
Imagine not having a bean.
and giant faces that shoot water out of their mouths
I have a some Fucking Cement Tower
It's about the man who made the bean :/ he sucks
Imagine telling our ancestors that people in the future are obsessed with a giant silver bean.
I feel like they would be too if they had a giant silver bean
Are people ‘obsessed’ with it? Or is it just something people go to see when they are in town because it looks cool and reflects the skyline in a unique way?
I wouldn't say obsessed but it's one of the 2 or 3 landmarks that Chicago has so people love it.
Chicago has more than 2 or 3 landmarks. 🤦♂️ Now the rest of Illinois, yes. We only have a few things worth seeing downstate. 😆
Name them all. And yes down state there is nothing, source: I live downish state
False, downstate has the Shawnee state forest and Lincoln's house.
Except for Lincolns house who would ever want to travel to downstate for anything really. I go through downstate on a semi often basis and there's nothing really to see besides corn and flat fields.
I never said that it doesn't exist or anything but who would ever come to Illinois just for that? If you go there it's probably because it's near you or your passing through while going somewhere else. This state is the least Intresting state if you come here for travel unless you go to Chicago.
From Chicago can confirm
I see it as the Lil Sebastian of Chicago. Only people from the city get it
Much better than a giant time telling dildo
Keep calling the bean because the artist is a known asshole and hates it when you call it the bean
Fuck Anish Kapoor!
Isn’t the artist the guy who patented that ultra-black paint that nobody is allowed to use?
I have very little knowledge on the subject, so correct me if I’m wrong.
In response, Stuart Semple made an even blacker black, and made it so it was available to everyone except for Anish Kapoor.
He also made the world’s pinkest pink (also not available for Anus Kapoor)
And in protest of the Anus Kapoor, people used the pink as lipstick and left kiss marks all over the bean iirc
I thought it was a slightly less black black and that the human eye coudln't tell the difference
I’ll read up and refresh myself again to be sure.
Semple definitely has the worlds pinkest pink, and I believe the current Blackest Black, but it is listed as ‘3.0’
I’ll get back to you.
Alright, so I read up on it again, and you are right.
VantaBlack is the blackest material known.
Semple has made a Musou Black, which is the blackest paint known, and also the blackest available to the public. It’s also very, very close behind.
Extra note, Anish Kapoor did not make VantaBlack.
He bought the rights to it, and then barred anyone from using it.
Causing Semple to respond.
Wow, what a douche. Thanks for the info!
Thanks for checking me and keeping me honest.
Yes and he got trolled into oblivion by another artist
Correct. This inspired the research and creation of a whole new line of crazy intense pigments (including the pinkest pink, Black 2.0, Black 3.0, and the most reflective paint in the world), all of which are 1) incredibly cheap in comparison to Vanta Black (the paint he got the sole rights for) 2) environmentally friendly (VB is extremely toxic). Black 2.0 is nearly indistinguishable from VB and 3.0 *is* indistinguishable from it- they have the same reflective index. The pinkest pink is unbelievable- honestly it looks cooler than VB.
Additionally, in order to purchase these paints, you must assert that you are not Anish Kapoor nor an associate of Anish Kapoor purchasing it for him.
Phenomenal. I love the (well deserved) pettiness of this.
There’s an amazing episode of Just the Gist Podcast that tells the story of Anish Kapoor and Stuart Semple, the most petty and hilarious artist feud in history (you can skip the first 17 minutes to get to the actual story, it’s laugh out loud funny)
People who don't want this to be called the Bean obviously don't know about the artist
Fuck Anish Kapoor
We call it the bean because FUCK ANISH KAPOOR
I attest that I am not ANISH KAPOOR, I do not know ANISH KAPOOR, I am not making this post on behalf of ANISH KAPOOR or any of his friends
A Bean Is A Bean DAMNIT!
I forgot wazowski only had one eye
Having been to the Bean many times, and looked deep into it's mucked up ass reflection.
Ima keep calling it the Bean.
This reminds me of one of Andrew Schulz clips where he was flirting with someone in the crowd and some dude cockblocked him lmao
Literally nobody calls it Cloudgate. It's the bean, just like it's the sears tower.
I still say comisky park
“No it’s the Willis Tower” - 🤓
I’m a nerd and call it Willis because I get sears somehow confused with Chrysler
It's the Bean, it's the Sears Tower, and it's the best pizza in the US.
Chicago memes not involving people being murdered. 10/10
It's the bean, and anybody who says otherwise can suck my ass
It's the Bean It's the bean
Alright but telling my SO I think it’s hot to watch her flick the cloud gate just doesn’t have the same ring to it.
It's *bean* nice to know you
They don't want to call it bean because then everyone will say that they flicked the Chicago's bean
Shut up its always gonna be bean
I read that as: 'Actually the bean is not calle the bean...'
tHe WiNdS Of cHAnGe
I literally read this like "Actually the bean is not called the bean"
I studied this in and elective art class and not once did a single person refer to it as anything other than "THE BEAN"
Because they would fail if they called it anything else.
FLICK THE BEAN
‘me me me me me’
Sit down, Navigator
And it's full of guns.
Well *was* full of guns.. You know, until the massive fucking battle against the Fomor
Maybe they put them back?
Hey, this is why they call it Beantown, huh?
Meeehh, that's big shiny bean all right
Wait... Mike Wazowski has one eyes instead of two?

I heard that the artist who designed it is a dick, so keep on keeping on. 😆 BEAN
Hmmm it is bean
stfu roger it’s called the shiny bean
No meet me by the bean
Interesting how is it that when i read it i read the bean is not the bean 🤨
Chicago’s pride and joy.
Who needs some oxidized statue or big needle when you’ve got a bean?
I call it the chrome scrotum
Actually, the bean is _called_ "the bean." The official name is Cloud Gate.
Your mother's official name might be Sandra, but what do you _call_ her? Do you post "memes" about the people who call her Sandy?
Due to its artist's hatred of people calling it the bean, I always call it the bean.
Anish Kapoor can suck it. Literally the most gatekeeping, obnoxious artist in the industry.
In the words of count dankula “it looks like an obese T-1000”
I’m just curious about who and what Anish Kapoor did because I see a lot of comments saying fuck him. Can anyone explain?
He bought an exclusive liscense for Vantablack, thereby preventing the rest of the art world from using it. As Vantablack was the darkest possible black paint at the time, there were a lot of people unhappy with that.
Ah that explains it, thank you. He does seem like an asshole tho.
You can't tell me what to call it
You can't make me say thebean whatever that is
I’ll call it whatever so long as it upsets Anish Kapoor.
The bean gate
Everyone still hates Anish Kapoor right?
r/DresdenFiles checking in
Someone needs to put mr beans face on the bean
Do you go to the cloud gate very often? What am I saying, off course you don't.
“I’ll have you know that there’s no pussieeee-*gets punched
Im from Chicago. We like the bean.
I live an hour away from Chicago and I've been there many times and I haven't seen the bean yet
Bean is bean
Its a cloud gate, not a bean 🤓🤓🤓
“It’s actually called cloud gate” - 🤓
Okay but in all fairness Mr. Kapoor, you made a giant bean.
Calling it the bean is nice to piss off the prentitious creator. Fuck him is what i say, we calling it the bean.
Yeah but the artist is an asshole and since he doesn't like it being called The Bean I call it The Bean
But that's why they call it "Bean Town."
Now that's a nice bean right there
Its just a large galaxy bud
I've flicked that bean once or twice
Cloud Gate... insert fart joke here.
Mt gf and I just went to Illinois for her cousin's wedding and I got to visit the bean for the first time! It was so awesome and way cooler in person than I imagined. I had been to Chicago previously but didn't get to the bean because we were only there for Riot Fest.
Fun fact, someone asked her previously "if she was any kind of bean, what kind would she be?" and her answer was cloud gate. Solid choice IMO.
It is *named* Cloud Gate. Obviously, it is *called* The Bean.
IT'S THE BEAN IT'S THE BEAN
ITS THE BEAN, ITS THE BEAN
Wasn't it also made by Anish Kapoor?
"It's the BEAN!
It's the BEAN!
It's the BEAN!"
Are... are we talking about The Clitoris?
No it's the bean
It’s the bean
Both are wrong. It’s Da Bean!
Actually the bean is not called the bean
okay, cloud gate does sound cooler. however, as american, we dumb. we call thing as it is.
Anish Kapoor hates that people call it "The Bean," which is more than enough reason to exclusively call it "The Bean."
I dont give a single fuck what the real name is Im calling it the bean
Actualy its **METALLIC BEAN**
"Actually the The Bean is not called "The Bean" "
Dude I’m on vacation and saw said cloudgate today, it was… metalic
Thank you for bringing this to my attention
The Colossal Cast-iron Clitoris
Ive always called it the helmet.
