Traffic solution for Bay Area?

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?

Defunct Airlines Thread - Gone but not forgotten #2
61243_1329766222
Old thread >>1544476

This is Varig. It used to be Brazil's flagship and one of the better airlines worldwide.

I flew in this particular MD-11 on a domestic flight from GRU to NAT in 1999 I believe.
It had a special livery made for the 1998 FIFA world cup when it carried Brazil's national squad to France.

We ended up losing the final against France (3-0). Fat Ronaldo got sick (very controversial) and Zidane raped us.

Look at this pathetic excuse for public transit, amiright? It doesn't even go between peoples houses. Know why? Because it's run by the Las Vegas casinos. It was never meant for the public good. It's a disney world esque attraction meant to lure people in with its futuristic allure and the promise of tomorrow, only to keep you captive on the vegas strip, only able to access where private businesses want you to go. It's built to sell you an idealized future that will never come, which is why it keeps cropping up in schemes to deliver the undeliverable, and keep the money it makes off your exploited idealism.

And that's why Elon Musk's Las Vegas Loop is bad. Pic unrelated

forrest themed yacht
Why are Yachts so common among the super rich, but neither airships, nor gigantic flying boats are even a thing nowadays?

I was watching some videos on youtube about superyachts a few months ago and the superyacht lifestyle just sounds pretty dull. They all look alike and only differ in size really. Helipads are nothing out of the ordinary but that's it really.
I would at least want it to be a seaplane tender for like a rotax powered SeaRey and then I thought it would be even cooler to have a giant flying boat. Think Sprouse Goose but with modern materials, it would be insanely expensive, but from what I can tell, that's kind of the point.

And as for airships, I'm not the biggest fan but I figured there'd have to be at least some rich assholes who want an airship that dwarves basically any man made vehicle. Again with the technology and materials of today, why doesn't this stuff exist apart from like warbirds?

Apologies for the terrible description of the problem but I know nothing about electric motors.
I know the issue isn't with any of the external mechanical stuff, I've entirely detached the wheel and it still does the same thing. I got hit by a bike about a year ago and had to re-adjust the brakes, re-attach the front wheel, bend the frame holding it back into place, etc. but it had been working fine since then until recently so I don't think that's the issue. Anyone know what the problem might be? Is it something repairable if I can get the wheel hub open or am I better off just getting a replacement?

2 mile commute to work, comfy transport options?
maxresdefault-8-1024x576
Hi friends, my car recently shit the bed and I want to be done with all the car related bullshit.

My work is exactly 2 miles away. It is all sidewalk and I live in Florida so it's completely flat.

There might be some un-even concrete blocks and the occasional rock/rock sized detritus.

I work nights so driving pretty much exclusively in the dark on the sidewalk.

I'd like to spend under $500

If the transportation device can fit under a cafeteria table in the break room that would be sweet.

At what point did you realize that "gravel bikes" are just what replaced front suspension hybrids when male inadequacy complex concluded that a front suspension hybrid is unacceptable?

Think about it. You can't refute this.

winter cycling gloves
eng_pl_-Polish-Puma-Camo-Gloves-Used-16342_1[1]
Any of you'll have recommendations for cheap winter cycling gloves?

I bought these Polish army puma gloves for £5 and they're great on a 2-3 degrees C day, but at night when it gets to 0-1 with the windchill, they're only comfy for 30 minutes before my fingertips start getting cold.

I looked at specialist winter cycling gloves but they look fairly thin and lacking in insulation plus they're pricey as fuck. I'm finna to just get some skiing gloves (as the basketball Americans say).

>US Senate investigators say that Boeing officials "inappropriately coached" test pilots during efforts to recertify the company's 737 Max aircraft.
>Investigators accused Boeing and Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) officials of "attempting to cover up important information".
>"Boeing officials inappropriately coached test pilots in the MCAS simulator testing contrary to testing protocol," it said. "It appears, in this instance, FAA and Boeing were attempting to cover up important information that may have contributed to the 737 Max tragedies."

It's still a death trap and they know it.

You will not

-Stare at the engines if there's an air stair (look straight ahead and look bored and annoyed that there's someone in front of you)
-Look at or touch the skin of the aircraft as you pass through the door
-Glance longingly at the cockpit as you walk past (you terrorist, only terrorists are interested in that stuff up there)
-Read the safety card for any reason (omg imagine the germs)

Most importantly: under no circumstances are you to look out the window, what are you a child?

Is it better to ride in a lower gear with a higher cadence or a taller gear with a lower cadence? I have a 2x11 bike and I never bothered shifting the front to the lower gear; I just permanently kept it in the taller gear of the two because I felt like I could access all the usable power I needed from the 11 gears in the back (unless I’m climbing a massive hill).

Is there any way to keep my toes from freezing off, preferably some kind of hack with stuff around the house? I’ve already duct taped around the toe box of my shoes which helped a little but they still get cold after about 20 minutes. Also, any other tips for riding in the cold are welcome here.

Cycling is the best thing in the world and I want to thank all the bros here for your advice.
I started riding flat roads during the shutdown and gradually got more serious. Now I look for progressively bigger hills and can really experience that initial joy of road cycling all over again. Seriously my mind and body would be atrophied without such a glorious sport to do. I encourage all Americans (especially in the Sunbelt) to give it a try.
The best part with climbing hills is you can get a serious workout in quickly.

Defunct Airlines Thread - Gone but not forgotten
1588242209277
What's your favorite defunct airline? Why did it disappear?
For me it's Ansett. They went bankrupt back in September 2001, though they stuck around until 2002 as an A320-only low cost carrier in the hopes of finding a buyer.

Their bankruptcy had a few causes
>Deregulation of the Australian airline market put increased pressure on their revenues
>Most of their major investments (including a part share in the now-defunct America West airlines) performed poorly
>Their 767 fleet was aging and regularly had maintenance issues, culminating in their 767 fleet being grounded in Christmas 2000 and their entire fleet being grounded in Easter 2001, which was an expensive loss.
>Air New Zealand bought them out and merged with them in early 2000. ANZ didn't really have the capital available for their own modernization needs, let alone those of Ansett, so the result was that both companies were severely undercapitalised. (ANZ would go bankrupt around the same time as Ansett and had to be renationalised)
>Air New Zealand's attempts to reduce the operating costs of Ansett had detrimental effects on service quality. Their aim was to keep the same revenue while getting costs down, since that was somewhat successful for Air New Zealand, but in Ansett it had the effect of driving away customers who wanted premium service
>They spent a large amount of money to become the official sponsors of the Sydney 2000 Olympics, but didn't see much return on it since Qantas had a much stronger brand image internationally as Australia's airline, and combined with some guerilla marketing by Qantas a large number of people just assumed that Qantas was the official sponsor anyway.

After Singapore Airlines and Qantas pulled back from buying Ansett Mk.1 when it was in administration, there were plans to keep it flying in a smaller form put forward by the Tesna Consortium, but since the government didn't offer them any support they pulled back and Ansett Mk. 2's last flight landed on March 4th 2002.

Ok guys, I'm looking for some advice. I know that there is a lot of seafarers on this board, so tell me, it's even fucking worth to finish a college in order to get OOW ticket?

I heard that situation on a market is pretty harsh right now, and I don't want to pay a shitload of money just to end as an OS. I'm a p(or)lack if that matters, so IDK if the situation in Europe is also that bad.
