it's worth remembering that Japan basically just wrote off all the debt on Shinkansen construction. JNR went bankrupt and the govt took the debt and spun the rest off into JR.

In anotehr words they will take $28,000 from every single resident in the US by inflation tax.

I know in the current year "just print more money duh" was normalized and is presented as something very innocent. But in fact it is armed robbery by the state.

When were you there?
One time when the tentative schedule came out, I noticed I wasn’t on it. And both of my students were given to other instructors. So I walked into the office and that asshole, Brandon. Argued with me saying it’s because I never submitted an ARF. When I told him that I did. He actually argued with me saying I’m not going on the schedule because they didn’t receive my arf and it wasn’t in there email. I told him that he was wrong and it’s there, that I did send it. He said to me “ALL these CFIs come in here complaining because they don’t follow policy and then want us to fix their problems blah blah blah. But just for YOU, I’ll show you that it’s not here and then you’re going to get out of my office and go see your manager”. He went over to the computer. Went into the email. He got quiet and I said “don’t you see it?” And he replied with “yeah. It’s there..”
seems like if you actually make a decision to make the schooling/training your main thing in life you can get it done within a couple years, perhaps around a year and a half
in florida at least
Totally. And Brandon was a fuckton better than that useless waste of oxygen haleema.
I was having a lot of sleep issues when I was there. Because I’d switch between morning and nights every other day. One morning my first event would be at 6am and the next day my first event could be 10pm at night and end at 3am. I talked to my doctor about it because it was really a lot. He was absolutely shocked that our schedules were so shitty. He couldn’t believe that we didn’t know a weekly schedule. He asked me what the management schedules were like, and when I said they work 9-5 weekends off he said they were abusing us.

Want to be un-fancy? Bowline.
Want to be fancy? Brummel lock-splice.
Multihulls look cool and have certain other benefits but ultimately they're for caribbean vacationers who sit at anchor more than they move because a moving multihull is a bobbing and slapping multihull. The steadily leaning and wavecutting nature of monohulls is just more comfortable underway.
Thanks anon. I did bowlines but I’ll look into the fancy option
depends if you live aboard, you spend like 10% of the time actually sailing

not him but it's feasible if you're not pushing too hard and it's not too hot out
not that I would recommend it of course
I can't not push it, which is a bad thing since I have inclination on heart conditions and I easily bonk without noticing the first signs.
I usually use up 1l of water per hour. Sweat it out as well, but dipping hydration level makes my heart rate go bonkers.
>sunny summer day
>endless country roads
>hours of riding
you want two bottles
on a hot 25 degree C day I've got though 800 ml of water in 3 km, I guess I was biking too fast and had not drunk enough water earlier in the day
so much water should last around 8 km before I find somewhere to top it up again, and that's not much more than 20 minutes of biking on any bike
>Do you never ride for more than 4 hours?
no? what the fuck is this crazy hobo trash seriously
the number of people in my entire country that ever ride for more than 4 hours can probably be counted on one hand
who has time for that? do you have fun or is it some aneroxia type workout obsession?

12 years old hands typed this post
they're still different things on a mtb except 9spd XTR flippy flappy suicide shifters
Why do you call them suicide shifters? XTR is peak edge line for MTB
XTR flippy floppy levers shifted when you moved the brake lever up and down
Really? I missed this entirely, got into MTB in '94 when I was a wee lad, have seen my friends go with XT "automatic" levers then getting telescope forks while I rode my rigid steel donkey with 3x6 grip shifters 'til 2006 when it practically fell apart, riding hard for 12 years does that. But never come across that XTR brake lever shifter design.
Now I use a basic road/gravel bike with STI shifters and they feel natural. Maybe because the levers are vertical and shifting sideways. Can see the problem when the bumps and forces come up while holding the horizontal lever that shifts upwards.

I'm occasionally amazed with how second nature getting out of my clipless pedals has become. My front wheel slipped out while making a slow turn on a skating rink today and without even thinking I had my foot down in an instant, managing to stay upright until I slid to a stop.

Icy everywhere now, roads, paths, the creek. Finally getting a stretch of more normal / miserable weather starting tomorrow.
I think I need to replace the batteries on this 1000w 48v ebike, there are two batteries fitted to extend range, can anyone give me pointers as to how batteries can differ, which brands are the best etc, I am a complete battery noob and I just inherited this ebike.
>And a callorie is the measurement of the power needed to heat up a cup of water by 1% or some shit
to be more correct, a single calorie is the measurement of energy required to bring 1cm^3 of water up (1g of water/1ml of water) a single degree celsius, so in theory 5 calories can bring 5ml of water 1C+ or 1ml of water 5C+. Now think about how much water is in your body and the energy required to thermoregulate itself to 37C+/-0.5C. So yeah, thermodynamics, nutrition, and the properties of water can get complex..

Is it true eastern european countries have better bus systems than western euros
35 replies and 6 images omitted. Click here to view.
Kansas City?
city of roughly 23k, we've got a few bus loops that run on half-hour intervals on weekdays only, and that's it.
in oakland its pretty good. all the normies who dont have cars take bart and uber, a decent portion ride bikes. seems like only black friends of mine take the bus even though it tends to be faster than bart for shorter trips. before corona the busfare was like 2.15(wtf?) but they would let you pay 2$

Ive been mostly hopping the bart gate for 20 years and just got caught for the first time about a year ago. hella dumb, broke my own rule: dont hop out at stations in the hood with single exits: richmond, hayward, pittsburg. i hopped the gate and look up and they were looking right at me. it was near halloween and i was in costume, i felt pretty dumb. they logged my info, poop.
>zero rail
Something doesn't quite add up here.
Amsterdam trams and ferries are absolutely godlike. Buses are alright. For some reason they keep building retarded metro lines to nowhere despite the literal swamp we live on. First demolishing, but recently just irreparably damaging parts of the 16th century unesco heritage city center.

bikefag here, racks obviously
dunno about scooterfags, I don't think anyone goes grocery shopping on those but you could just use a big backpack I guess

Scooterfag here, I use a large bag. Can easily get a weekly shop in there. You can get baskets and small bag attachments but they look awful and can be expensive so I'd recommend using a bag instead, preferably one with good back support if you're thinking about moving around a lot of things in it.
With a car. Unless you're poor or a faggot.

It's possible if you have a large bag and you live 5 minutes away from the shop, or maybe if you go shopping twice a week instead of buying everything at once

>low centre of gravity
>freeway capable and comfy for long rides
>can store plenty of stuff
>still get good mileage
I just like manuals with my motors though
i had this idea for some reason. in part due to the seating position, in part due to their general appearance, and in part due to their comically lax licensing standards. i essentially considered them as fitting the same niche as e-bikes.
then i read up on the reality and went off the idea of getting one entirely, if you've got to wear as much protective clothing as a motorcyclist to avoid death and dismemberment you might as well just get a motorcycle.

From Wikipedia:
>Phase 1 of the A$20m HSR study was released on 4 August 2011.[8] It proposed a corridor similar to the 2001 study, with prospective stations located in Melbourne, Tullamarine, Albury, Canberra, Goulburn, Sydney, Newcastle, the Mid—North Coast, Gold Coast and Brisbane. The cost for this route was estimated at A$61 billion, but the adoption of more difficult alignments or cost blowouts could raise the cost to over A$100 billion.[8] The report urged the authorities to acquire land on the corridor now to avoid further price escalations.[8]
