Why can't we build bridges to connect all the various Hawaiian islands?

We could build artificial islands as bases for the hypothetical bridges

who else loves ''small'' blimps over large rigid airships?

I am an LTA enthusiast and my interest is primarily with blimps, gas balloons and semi rigids.

I've never really believed in super large, massive, rigid, transatlantic, hybrid, cargo carrying pipedreams

pic related, beautiful small russian blimp

Sergey Brin is building a 200 meter airship

I tried creating an airship forum once

An airship community doesn't work, trust me..
why? because 50% are devout hydrogen enthusiasts, while the other 50% are devout helium enthusiasts, and they always collide into very uncivil discussions. Aside from that there would be the occasional snake oil salesman with totally retarded airship designs.

Either way what I am trying to say is the LTA community is totally split on this topic.

This. Japan has the most effective and well developed public transportation system in the world yet they still allow cars. If we simply reduce urban sprawl and develop a robust public transportation infrastructure people will naturally begin using more public transport. Hell, just reducing urban sprawl could reduce car usage significantly. As it stands most people have long commutes to work because jobs are located too far from residences.

I aspire to live in a house 10 minutes by car outside a mediumsized town (50-100k) in a place with decent house prices.
After much careful thought I've decided this is the optimal arrangement in every way.

Letting the dog roam.
Shooting clays in your backyard.
Working with powertools all evening.
Playing violin on your porch on a toasty summer night.
Building obstacle courses for the kids in the adjacent woods.

Living the dream. I can't wait, lads. We're all gonna make it.

Please post your budget, height, and requirements in a bike,. Someone will be more likely to help you if you include this information.

Some dedicated anons will give recommendations if you post your local craigslist too. May Sheldon Brown give favour to them on their rides.

I recommend replacing the tires with 26x2" Thickslick Comps, other than that it wouldn't hurt to repack the hubs with fresh grease.

Holy shit guys id's habbedings :--DDDDDDD

Mobiel is currently considering two options for the extension of Stadtbahn line 1 from Senne to Sennestadt. The first variant would split the line into two branches near the end, which would both be served with a 20 minute headway (pink on the map).
The second option would take the long way around, serving all stations of option one plus one additional stop (purple on the map). Overall travel time would be increased though for trips to and from the northwest of Sennestadt.

It's actually not happening. Planning is gonna take at least until 2021. Maybe the extension will be finished by 2030, who knows.

that is currently delivered to the polish city of Poznań.

Yeah, I know that these round displays for the line's number are fucking disgusting, but it's "muh local tradition!!1!!1"
Yeah, I also know that paint job is tragic, but the colours are also "muh tradition11!!!!1!"- luckily they are adjusting it a bit rn, so it won't be as disgusting as in early trams.
