I like night trains. You get on, go to sleep to the rocking of the train, and wake up somewhere else. I missed taking night trains, but I'm taking one soon and looking forward to it.

/KSG/ - Kick Scooter General

>Why?
Fun. Cheap. Surprisingly fast. Effective. Reliable. Great near-full body exercise.
>Really?
My average speed on an 11 mile ride in rolling terrain with many 3% grade hills is 10.35 mph.
>Well that's faster than I expected.
Not only are kick scooters surprisingly fast, you can ride them on sidewalks, you can fold them up and take them with you into stores, the average weight is only 8 to 11 lbs, and they only cost $50 to $160.
>Is there a learning curve?
Learning the toes-out-toes-in shuffle to switch kicking feet takes about 20 minutes of practice. Learning proper powerful kick technique comes naturally with time.
>I'll buy one tomorrow!
You're going to have a great time!

Public transportation may be cheap.... but it isn't practical.

Owning a car is practical and cool. THE FREEDOM AND OPTIONS OF INDIVIDUAL MOBILITY IS PRACTICAL.
Come to think of it, I think owning a car is also cheap and safe. Not to mention no nonwhites.

Being able to get work done during your commute and not have to share space with smelly noisy swarthy apes. Also, think about the generational wealth you could build with all the future classic cars!

Why should I sit next to nonwhites, restrict myself to stops or stations and waste time on slow public transportation.
I would always have to stick to schedules, expose myself to nonwhites, walk to stops or stations and buy potentially multiple tickets.

All of that when I can just get a car instead and enjoy absolute freedom and don't have to share space with nonwhites, also a lot more comfortable.

It just doesn't make any sense.

Railtrack plc

What were the exact reasons the privatization of british rail network as Railtrack plc failed so spectacularly in the UK that the british government decided to renationalise it as Network Rail?
It has been discussed recently here in Germany with a fair bit of support across the political and public spectrum, to spin off the DB rail network companies operating within the publicly owned leviathan of the Deutsche Bahn AG, into a separate non-profit corporation and one of the regularly appearing counterarguments is the supposed failure of such a spin-off in the UK, but from what I vaguely remember reading ages ago the big problem of Railtrack was it being a for-profit company in charge of a chronically neglected and severely antiquated rail network and I wonder if somebody here might enlighten me more about the exact details of it's failure?
