how do i get my town to add bike lanes? the only thing we have are sidewalks that also allow bikes
9 replies omitted. Click here to view.
bike lanes are ugly as sin and probably unnecessary if you actually live in a town and not a city. i can see the case for urban bike lanes, but i'm sure they're constrained by the width of the road.
Love it when people think adding bike lanes alone will magically fix your city.
Make your own bike lane.
In reality this shit works awfully or the battery dies after 1 hr
I have one of those, or something similar. It's a gimmick. My seat post is the wrong angle which means the lines do not project parallel on the ground. Also they do not project that far, or almost at all for that matter, behind me, and my things block projection forward. It's more like the lines are forming a targeting reticule towards my bike, rather than a lane.

the only two railroad focused games ive played are lego loco and sid meier's locomotion
i tried transport fever because i thought it would satisfy the trains itch, but its just a shitty game where you lose a bunch of money for no reason (and this is the case 99% of the time, so you cant stay profitable).
get into openttd
99% chance there'll be mods that cover an insanely specific railroad/railway and era that you'd want to larp
OpenTTD JGR patch fixes a lot along with FIRS. My favorite feature is automatically spaced time tables for trains with shared orders. Works like a charm even on single track routes with evenly spaced passing loops. Programmable signals too makes a difference to override the path finder.
I too were disappointed by Transport Fever. Had to mod it to get a decent alignment designer, and the gameplay and industries just feel so lacking, even if many of the aspects of the game are polished.
Other options are:
Railway Empire (simple but fun)
Mashinky (More like TTD, in development)
Voxel Tycoon (Same as above, but a little too simple IMO)
ill have to look at those. thanks
i thought about buying one of those train sim games, but people shit all over them in the reviews, and the massive amount of dlc turns me off
>the gameplay and industries just feel so lacking
completely agree. if you dont get really lucky on location spawns, you are never going to profit, and thats it for that map.
i briefly tried it when it first got put on steam, and have yet to get back to it. ill give it a shot.

What do you guys think of SpaceX's Starship?

Not sure what to say about the rocket ship itself, but I was on the company's grounds in Texas not long ago. Was delivering parts for the actual rocket. Was very high-security, I was told I couldn't take pictures, this, that, etc. I put my phone in my button-up shirt's breast pocket, and tried to video record as much as I could while acting as nonchalant as I could.
The money spent on welfare would help the economy more if it were spent in other areas. And any day to day benefit is out weighed by the damaged caused by a welfare state.

None of them received meaningful amounts of foreign aid (technology transfer and market access aside), especially aid that wasn't directed towards the military.
There's a very important reason why South Vietnam and Syngman Rhee's Korea were basketcases.

Do not assume Boeing is too big to fail.
Has boeing even put anything of value out recently? I know their stock keeps rising because they've always got some magical product in the works which is always a year away from completion (and always will be) but ever since the whole autopilot fiasco i've only heard negative things from my aviation friends
>Any relation to reality
yes that was in reference to the "too big to fail" part because investorfags i know keep saying "Invest in boeing invest in boeing" because they think it'll keep going up forever despite the fact they seem to have nothing to offer
The issue is and has consistently been management.
Stop boot-licking for them.

we're trying im sorry

actually yes, going airside sucks dick vs other airports (jfk, ewr) because of the lack of room to work in. its super dense w/lots of traffic...have had coworkers banged for AOA violations during snow removal ops for that reason. espc. recently its been super active
AOC didn’t seem to understand the alternatives. The alternative she wanted would have permanently disrupted Amtrak and 7-train service and cost 3x more. I’m happy with the current route.

How do people react when you ride BIKE ON ROADS? It is not very common so even if I ride fast people get angry. Also should I take lanes or not? I generally take the lane because it is often unsafe to ride on the side.

Based supermario movie enjoyer.
That is feature not a bug.
These scooters specifically throttled down to 25km/h. They are replacing bicycle. You can imagine how retared is average bicycle normie rider without driving license. So without driving license escooters are limited to speeds average normie can reach using bicycle.
This is very smart move.
I’d like to see more small vehicles in LA, it would help with traffic.
Electric scooters are super popular in Asia
I'm not afraid to get wet, it is just impossible to arrive at my office soaking wet when we don't have showers, locker rooms, or changing rooms. I have to enter a lobby, stand with 10 other people in an elevator while wet, arrive in our offices, go into the bathroom and change (should I be carrying dry clothes with me all the time?), all the while making everything around me wet.
Your monkey little brain doesn't seem to grasp how rainy it gets where I live, and doing a commute on a bike without wearing a well insulated rainsuit will get you wet as if you just fell into a swimming pool. I don't even know why I reply to you, you talk like an actual underage idiot who probably lives in California where it mostly has comfortable weather.

never had one myself but I saw one on a sector next to mine. atc told a plane to descend and didn't see the one under it. nothingburger in the end though, I don't even think TCAS RAs were triggered.

a lot of Air France pilots act like they're entitled because they think they have some national privilege (they don't). some of them just politely insist on directs, some of them are straight out dicks. never had a dick on freq though, they usually act like this with Paris because they think they own the airport

Basically our standard display is computer generated and mixes radar data together and does some kind of "mean" to display a single blip. so it's not a true radar view. in case that software has issues, we can always switch to single radar view, select one convenient radar that's near our sector and see the raw data without enriched information or flight plan correlation.
we only have secondary surveillance radars where I work (SSR), so we only detect transponders that are actively responding to our radar queries. a plane turns off their transponder, we immediately lose radar contact and we have no way to see it, only the military guys can with their primary radars (PSR) that physically detect flying objects. obviously the military need those because enemy aircraft wouldn't voluntarily answer radar queries.
so I guess I could see LEO objects if they somehow have an active transponder, but I don't think they would. But they could very well detect Concordes back in the day when they were around FL600 on cruise.
Former EISN, always a good laugh coordinating with LFRR. The only response you ever seem to get is "Oui".
top kek they're a bit more elaborate with us (LFEE)
then again their airspace is extremely big so they're much more arranging because they have room to do stuff

Is there any hope of Florida getting some decent transportation systems (rail)?
Considering how fast their cities are growing it seems like a possibility to me.

Yesterday over 10'000 riders attended critical mass in Zurich, the city with the worst cycling infrastructure in all Switzerland. The column was up to 5km long and took 40 minutes to pass a point. Today critical mass is on the front page of every news paper in Switzerland and the comments sections team with salty cagers and happy city slickers. Come summer I expect 15k-20k people to ride and demonstrate for their right to adequate infrastructure which has been ignored for over 30 years now. Hows it going in your city?

also, afterparty was massive!

>free health
I think you're in the wrong thread bro.
isn't "top quality health insurance" practically free health?
You'll be paying for that insurance just like you'll be paying for food and rent.
american healthcare cost double the oecd average. the bureaucracy and nonsense, and the burden of paying for proles' medicaid/medicare who frankly live incredibly unhealthy life. compare life expectancy of east asia versus their medical cost.
88k is ok, doesn't give you a huge flat, but as long as you keep our fix costs in check it is kinda nice. finding a nice flat for an ok price will take some time, but once you got that you're fine.

no, just no. it shows that you never lived in Zurich and only spell cliches.

>twice the track

ehh, if you had two tracks parallel to each other it could work in those areas as long as the tracks are uniformly spaced, most of out west isn't like that though, maybe only between big cities that are close like portland and seattle
then why not just run 2 trains?
Global "free" trade is a scam. Stick to neighbor countries you can respectfully trust not to colonize you, and always be ready to back out.
It could but there's almost never a reason to build something like that.
