It’s a meme tram mostly paid for by real estate interests. I rode it on opening day but haven’t been back since and I’m sure the low ridership is down to nothing with the ‘rona. At one time Detroit had a world class streetcar system and an interurban network connected to the rest of the Midwest but these feeble attempts to build back a tiny bit of that will never make a difference. The downtown revival with sportsball arenas and hipsters is done.

>FYI: I am not a pilot!
0: DON'T FUCKING PANIC! Panicking doesn't help anything!
1: Try to find the altimeter and mechanical horizon (or whatever serves that function) and determine altitude and angle
2. Grab the controls and level out and/or start to climb if I think I'm too low. Is there an Autopilot? Is it fucking up? Can I override it? Let's find out..
3. Is there something like navigational radar on this ship? Look for it once I think the imminent danger of crashing into the ground is over; try to determine if there's anything *ahead* I'm too low and are going to hit (like a goddamned *mountain* for instance)
4. YELL! "IS THERE ANYONE ELSE ON BOARD!?" as loud as I can; STFU and listen hard for a response. There might be someone on board who knows what the actual FUCK is going on here! Is there an intercom system? There must be in somethign this big. Try to find it: "IS THERE ANYONE ELSE ON BOARD?"
5. MEANWHILE: Look for something that says "Autopilot"; try to engage it. WATCH INSTRUMENTS (at least the ones I understand!) CAREFULLY in case the Autopilot is fucking up.
6. Look for the radio. MAYDAY, GODDAMNIT TO HELL, MAYDAY!!! Try to get someone to tell me where the fuck I am and how to get this crate safely back on the ground!

I could not imagine anything worse than being killed in a passenger airline crash. Everything is going smoothly and then suddenly your aircraft pitches violently and rolls into a dive. If you have a seatbelt on you’re lucky but only momentarily. The aircraft enters a free fall while the entire cabin fills with screams, those in the bathroom or not buckled into their seats are thrown around like rag dolls - peoples heads smashing into one another or the ceiling. The elapsed time makes you realize the pilots can not correct the aircraft and it sets in that you’re going to die. During daytime and with a window seat you are at least granted knowledge of the impact distance. At night it is a complete surprise. You’re stuck in a tube filled with screaming and frantic people until the moment you make contact with the earth, likely upside down. You know you’re going to die, you just don’t know when. It’s a surprise, like being sniped in the head. Depending on the nature of the accident you could be trapped in the windowless bathroom tumbling around covered in shit or you could be sucked out of the fuselage from explosive decompression and free fall into an engine nacelle or the starry expanse. Any scenario is completely disturbing and unpleasant to think about. I would never wish to experience this in my life.

Back in 1994 I was on a Cathay Pacific flight that had a near collision with a NWA flight, both 747 off the coast of Japan. I guess they missed each other by a few hundred yards.

I worked with a guy that had been in the Coast Guard and did cleanup off the California coast of the Alaska Airlines flight that crashed around 2000. He said they'd find a hand or a leg by itself and everyone was ripped to pieces.

There's a better way of doing it using combined cycle engines, which is essencially the combinatio n of an internal combustion engine and a steam engine powered by heat from the exhaust.

It's already a reality for gas powered power stations, and the tecnology should be easy to apply in ships. Maybe even long range trucks, although for cars batteries seem the better option.

It only work for certain loads in some implementations, it's a good idea but so far it has limitations:

All the recent "hyperloop" designs are operating in near vacuum, not an absolute vacuum. As the capsule goes down the tube it compresses what air is inside. This makes the aerodynamics of the capsule very important to overcome the kantrowitz limit.
>>
>>1578888
And Shane Killian proved that Thunderf00t is full of shit when it comes to the hyperloop. TF has a hair up his arse when it comes to Musk, and his hyperloop videos is a cavalcade of straw man arguments and cognitive dissonance.

Is he still repeating himself 90%+ of the time in his videos? He has decent takes but I can't stand the repetition. Is he still like that?
>>
>>1581001
Yes. Last one I saw he dedicated several minutes to pointing out how the passengers, in the first live human test run, embarked and disembarked at the same point.

Then he made fun of how the test track is in the middle of nowhere, poorly situated for commercial operation. My favourite is when he says this, in his most smarmy Thunderfoot voice: "And I'm gonna take a wild guess, tell me why this is such a perfect site for the world's revolutionary new transport system. But I'm going to guess... because they didn't want to spend a lot of money on it.” Fucking ZING, dr. Mason. In a developing phase of a new technology, test facilities were constructed on the cheapest land possible, far away from residential areas, so as to reduce collateral in the case of an accident, minimise impact of noise etc. and just to make each dollar they have at their disposal stretch as far as possible. What point did he think he was making?

Then he complains about a light flashing which would annoy him and spends some time playing clips from Internet Historian’s video on Fyre Festival.

This is so frustrating, because his videos on Fontus, Solar Roadways and Waterseer etc were actually really damning. He demonstrated with basic maths how the problem with those concepts was thermodynamical impossibility, and not something they could engineer themselves out of. With the hyperloop, all his complaints are of surmountable issues.

It’s notable that with most other concepts he has debunked, he gets some sort of pushback by the developers or their backers, and he tears that apart to. Thunderfoot has received plenty of pushback for his hyperloop videos, and the only response from Thunderfoot that I’ve seen is when he pointed out that a calculation that destroyed one of his arguments wasn’t rounded off to the correct amount of significant figures. It’s bizarre to watch someone so smart as Thunderfoot be so locked into his cognitive dissonance on this particular subject.

I have a PPL license (Cessna 172) and I find driving a car hard as fuck. It's literally the hardest thing I've ever done.

If I'm focusing on the road I'm not looking at the side mirror, if I'm looking behind me I forget to use the turn signals, if I'm focusing on pedestrians I missing the traffic signs, if I'm looking at traffic signs I don't see pedestrians, if I try hard enough to keep my eyes in check I suddenly forget the laws of the road.
Even crosswind landing is much easier than parking. I'm not forced to shoehorn my plane in a small space between others traveling in my direction, t he opposite direction and sometimes sideways.
Flying a private aircraft is much simpler, and requires less concentration most of the time, landings excepted. Every moment must be channeled into controlling and planning the course of the vehicle. Distracted driving kills millions. How many accidents result from distracted flying? One lost moment while driving and you're potentially dead. An airplane gives you time to assess, to remedy, to minimise danger and destruction.

Driving is very hard.

cause you're not very smart, as soon you realize this you will be on the way of correcting your mistakes. dumb people drive all the time, but the truly stupid ones are who never realize they're awful and lack the mental awareness to at least compensate for their shit ways. just realize you're an absolute idiot who can't turn the wheel nor press on the gas correctly; then you will think of how to make up for this. maybe you will start driving slower, maybe you will become ultimately defensive, or better yet you will avoid driving at all costs. i recommend the last option
