You'll be firing Bittern today, son. You passed your apprenticeship. Do me proud.
You were pretty close to having the last 3 digits of the engine number in the reflection of his glasses match the post number.
What are you smoking, lad? Virginia/Turkish blend? Bake me a gammon in the firebox while you're at it.
A bit of Balkan Sobranie.
What kind of pathetic 20th century locomotive can be fired by hand?
But dad I wanted to drive the 08
I like to ride my bike near the Milky Way near the tittles that fluctuate dairy nonsense. I truly am optimistic about everything the universe has to offer. From helicopters to miniature planes being held by bike riders & supported by people who crouch. Always make sure your bikes tires have the correct psi because you don’t wanna end up falling off your bike & faceplant leaving looking like tony little. Sing along!
I like to ride my cockcycle I like to suck my popcicle. .
I couldn't have said it any better myself
So this did not kill public transit like people expected it to? Except for the vaccine mandates of course, or depending on your country, qr code contact tracing
Meawhile work from home also seems to be petering out, even though continuing it would reduce the need for commuting everyday and reliance on travel/public transit again, thus lowering risk of catching it. Automobiles are hailed for protecting you from catching it on public transit, but if cities were designed to be more walkable/ bikable/ accessable with public transit and affordable missing middle housing, would people abandon cars if the future meant having to rely on impracticle outrageously expensive and rare earth/ fossil fuel burning dependent electric vehicles where does equal access of mobility go from here?
>would people abandon cars if the future meant having to rely on impracticle outrageously expensive and rare earth/ fossil fuel burning dependent electric vehicles Unless we develop jetpack technologies or go back to the Middle Ages, cities fundamentally aren't going to change anytime soon >where does equal access of mobility go from here? There is no equal access of mobility. It is never guaranteed in any constitution of any country, it is merely the wish of freeloaders who wish to go anywhere on someone else's dollar
>there are people who actually thought this was ever going to end any way other than "learning to live with it" The only question there ever was (same as after 9/11) was how long the government could keep everyone terrified and willing to piss away their rights to feed the ruling classes' power fetish. >where does equal access of mobility go from here? I wouldn't worry. The masses have proven to be extremely compliant when it comes to being controlled and restricted 'for their own good'. Expect "climate lockdowns" or some bullshit in the not-too-distant future. Britain is already openly allowing climate extremists to regularly shut down major roadways.

COOMing is the only good feeling in this shit world.
So let's say I want to heavily influence urban planning in a community, initially because I want to see change in my hometown but perhaps because of some way to profit. What is stopping me from negotiating to run my own trains for a profit to platforms I pay for along an existing railway? Furthermore, what is stopping me from essentially crowdfunding infrastructure in this manner, not from locals via tax but via say shares of a company or something. If I can guarantee profit through some proof of concept, then theoretically this should also be a new way to fund infrastructure privately. Now I'd have to identify profiitable rail lines that are not being exploited, but in my area that's not an issue. So far I haven't heard of anything that truly could stop me from doing this besides upfront capital but Im not worried about doing this tommorrow so whatever.
are you retarded?
is right. Canada is a tax farm for certain wealthy families, most prominently the Waltons and Irvings. why do you think everything is a monopoly here? their interests will leverage nate politics to ensure you never lay a single tie
you need billions of dollars, there is a company just like that here in victoria, BC, they actually own most of the right of way and tracks and sit on their ass putting out "trains sure would be great huh?" newsletters but they will never build anything because they don't have the capital to fix tracks/get rolling stock/add electrification etc. and the Gov of BC is putting all it's money for transport into Vancouver.
Well luckily I’m not on the west coast where there’s no industrial infrastructure to profit off of.
Never considered this, makes sense though. Time to pick a new rust belt region to do this in. You guys keep posting how awful Amtrak is in specifically Midwest cities, I’ll just hop over there and start my discount Great Lakes rail system there. Maybe someday Canada and the natives will appreciate the offer.
So I should start as a land developer in underdeveloped/underutilized communities near my lines. Build the demand first essentially. If I did that I’d have to keep my rail intentions Lowkey until I have some actual cash flow, because that’s definetly a more out-there part of the plan if I’m trying to get backing from potential residents or investors. While the logistics of it are certainly complicated, it’s a matter of time before someone does this anyway. There’s a plethora of prime urban real estate lying in the east ends of most rust belt cities, already crisscrossed by railways of corporations that didn’t give a fuck when they were built. I might not have upfront capital right now, but the business model is sound- build a real estate empire on the shittiest parts of the Midwest, and eventually provide real transit both inter urban and regional. Let’s not forget that all the track is down; cities jump through these hoops without existing rail infrastructure all the time. Sure they aren’t solvent, but that can be chalked up to incompetence in the modern era. There are plenty of models for profitable transit systems historically speaking; it’s a matter of keeping fat to a minimum and exclusively utilizing existing rail for a very long time. Hell, there’s probably demand to provide any new track to industrial uses as well. The way I see it, the more immersed in urban politics I get, the more local backing I can receive. That might not be necessary and I’d prefer not to be owned by all 10 shittiest run cities in the nation, but they are the types to have deep pockets (at least for infrastructure) especially when I’m doing all the hard work. Starting local is just for the proof of concept since I’m familiar with how this works in Canada. This would never get extended to say the GTA; the GO system is basically what I’m talking about but 60 years in and subsidized by a liberal province.
meds, have you taken them?
What went wrong?
Get these fucking assholes off the sidewalk
They look silly and they are heavy as fuck. Escooters (which every college kid seems to have these days) are just segways with a longer tail.
Fuck these soulless things
The Screensavers intro is what did it.
Onions eres est sumus estis sunt
Wow that was hard, enjoy your $400,000/year job fetching coffee for mafia dons
Did it for a few months. Pay is fine, QOL one step below retail.
Just saw a neighbor on second floor being guilt tripped by some older fat black delivery women in what looked like a wheel chair making delivery's and trying to go down a staircase. What kind of stupidity is this??? Whats next a family of homeless with their hands out. Or a kid with Down syndrome? Ding DOng, Hello, Its yo delivery, Open door and there's some leper picking up his ear that fell off his head and asking if you ordered the Chinese food! Or the hostile delivery guy! DATS ALL YOUR TIPPING? I HOPE YOU LIKE THAT KUNG POW CHICKEN I KNOW I DID!
i just got my motorcycle license, i previously rode my bicycle everywhere
i'm 5'2/110 lbs, and dual sport motorcycles are much lighter compared to most cruisers/sports bikes, seems easier to step on and off too because less bulky i expect to ride it all year, even when the roads are slushy from snow (so the tires are good) have you ever seen people use these bikes for normal commuting? and could you do a cross country trip on one? i was thinking 300cc
>>1716971 >i expect to ride it all year, even when the roads are slushy from snow
Get a naked style street bike. Like the MT-03 or the CB300R. More versatile for everyday paved road riding. Dual sport knobby tires are slow, noisy, and overall inefficient on pavement. At 5'2" most dual sport motorcycles are likely going to be too tall for you to flat foot with both feet because of the higher suspension. Shorter riders get around this by leaning on one leg when stopping, but this can be harder for a new rider. Also please don't ride in very wet/slushy conditions without some experience riding a motorcycle in normal dry conditions. Easiest way to lose control and crash. I believe this thread belongs on
you will get more relevant replies. Good luck and congratulations on your new license!
go ask to /o/ , /dbt/ General as well.
But for commuting you want a medium size, well protected with fairing motorbike and a good amount of luggage options.
Generally a big scooter (xmax, burgman etc) is the ideal commuter.
THANK YOU VERY MUCH
Why aren't airships like the one by the sky pirates in laputa castle in the sky built?
Because youll be able to travel inexpensively over the ice wall
you are now aware of the existence of aluminum zeppelins
you mean ww2 planes?
Why do people need to move around so much?
My company is moving from a smaller city that's 20min away for me to the capital city thats 40min away and rush hour hell.
Average price of a house in the capital? 520k euros.
Will they raise salaries to afford anything close? Does any employee other than directors live close? Lmao no.
Companies are too afraid not to locate in the middle of a big city. They might miss out on expat Indian no. 1474853 who made a fortune selling cow shit and works in IT, oh no. Thank god wfh is a thing now.
because I can afford rent here
For the video, the description didn’t bring up anything like that. So I can only assume that the kids are too fat and lazy to walk from the back of the parking lot to the school, or the parents are too retarded to realize they don’t have to sit in line, wasting gas, and it would be faster for the kids to walk the rest of the way.
>>1717149 >Pupils must be accompanied by parents in and out to the school checkpoint (with e pass, turnstiles, guards, metal detectors and possibly searches)
That sounds like a real problem.
