Has anything strange ever happened to you on a commercial flight?

>Flying from Toronto to Ottawa
>Airplane starts banking left and right
>Hear strange noises from the engine as if it's powering down and up
>Arrive in Ottawa
>Captain says over the intercom:haha sorry about that folks we lost our autopilot system but nothing serious

and you?

Do you ever think back to something that happened to you and it doesn't seem real because it seems so out of character for you? That's how I feel whenever I remember my flight back to the States from Europe when I was 21.

>be me, 21, very shy
>travelling alone from Europe back home to USA
>finally take my seat after getting to the airport with all my shit
>i'm alone in my row, omg i'm gonna have the whole place to myself. i take the aisle seat for now
>at the last minute, someone walks up next to me
>"sorry, i think i'm sitting next to you"
>i look up and i'm met with an angelic face of a young lady
>oh shit, this cute girl is sitting next to me? what do i do?
>soon after take-off, she starts talking to me
>she's cute, 19, Belgian
>keeps asking me questions and making conversation
>we hit some turbulence after a while and she gets a little scared and snuggles up against me.
>it's a little chilly so she gets out one of the in-flight blankets

if you're getting a motorcycle for work, get whatever is popular with everyone else in the same business so that hopefully you wont get fucked by parts availability.

whats the scooter theft scene like in Mexico City?

Will you get sent on a delivery just to set you up for scooter theft?

Over the past few years, the Bay Area has grown into one of the most valuable real estate areas in the world due to Silicon Valley and other booming businesses. More people keep moving in and the mountainous area keeps expanding to meet housing demands. It seems that the transportation infrastructure is not keeping up and traffic is getting worse and worse every year. How do we solve this?

>Two bikes together
Retarded. Bikes must travel with traffic to be seen.

>bus
Retarded, disembarking passengers walk directly into the bike lane upon exiting
>>
>>1600020
We don't really know if the bus will stop on the street at all.
But anyway it's impossible to design a street in this view, you need to know it from above too, and know if the street curves, how hilly it is and know where north-south is, to make an optimal street design, and you also need to know the surrounding streets to know if you can make it one way and to know to what extent you need to make it suitable for different traffic.

Where I live, you can have a cycle lane next to a bus lane, but when there's a bus stop, the cycle lane may curve behind the bus stop into the sidewalk so the passengers don't walk straight into the cycle lane.
>>
>>1600038
More:
For example, this tool requires you to choose either trees or lamps, but you could have alternating lamps and trees. You could also end the trees for a little bit to leave space for cycle parking or food stalls or whatever. You don't need to have everything along the whole street, like this tool expects you to.
Hills may change the needs for cycle lanes. If it's downhill one way, you may skip the cycle lane there because the cyclists still can keep a high speed. Curves in the road are important to visibility and maybe to leave enough space for buses to turn.
A street that goes north-south may have a bigger need for trees than one that goes east-west, because the north-south streets will have the sun in the south at the hottest time of the day, with no buildings on the side for shade. A street that goes east-west may have the buildings on one side give shadow, which may make trees slightly more skippable.

>On Sunday evening, Dutch air traffic control was asked by pilots of a Boeing 787 of the Mexican airline AeroMexico whether they could perform a low flyby over Amsterdam. The pilots wanted to admire the capital from the air.

>"You would wake up the whole of Amsterdam," said an astonished air traffic controller, as can be heard in an audio clip of the conversation between the pilots and the control tower.

>"Is there a chance that we will be allowed to fly at 4,000 feet (1,200 meters, ed.) Over Amsterdam?" Air traffic control responded in disbelief and said this was not possible.

>The pilots were surprised and said they came up with the idea "because of the new year". However, air traffic control made it clear to the Mexicans that the approximately 60 meter long plane would "wake up all of Amsterdam". However, the air traffic controller advised them "to visit Amsterdam when everything is open again".

>The flight in question was AMX26 from Schiphol to Mexico City, which arrived at its destination on Monday at 10:32 AM (Dutch time). The pilots could not only not fly low over the capital, but also had to take off from the Kaagbaan, so that they even took off in the opposite direction.

Does /n/ know of any other funny conversations between ATC and pilots?

Everyone can be happy with this setup:
>Elderly and homeless can take the bus or walk
>Poorfags can use a bicycle
>Chads can use the automobile
>Pedestrians are separated from autos
>Greenery for shade, atmosphere and oxygen
>If absolutely needed then some road space can be repurposed for a train
>Pedestrian overpasses as needed so chads don't have to stop for pedestrians.

Every place I've seen these proposed or built, the 'pedestrian rights' crybabies have fought them. Why?

I suspect that the pedestrian rights activists are actually anti motor vehicle. And forcing pedestrians into the roadway is just a good way to push up deaths and gain political leverage.

20's aren't that bad.
I can maintain 15-17 mph on mine and even some trails.
Plus tires and tubes are easy to find at cheap prices.
24" wheels probably more cushy on rough surfaces but less options for stowing the bike because bigger.

Also where can I get one with a coast brake + 5 speed hub? I feel like that is the ultimate folder. One cable, no exposed gears or derailleur, seems like the perfect application of a hub and a coaster.
