 Compared to other "large" cities in the US, our system is no where near them. Yes a large contributing factor is suburbs, but also how far out those suburbs are. OP lives in Plano, not in Dallas.

have you been to many other large cities in the US and tried their mass transit systems? granted NYC, DC, and Chicago are better especially with their rail system. but you will not find a better system in the south or western united states. the busses are on time, very clean, bicycle friendly, and over 90% of the city is with in a 10 min walk of a bus stop.

#2193049 Minimum wage

Posted by hollywood on 16 October 2013 - 10:08 AM

problem is that so many people are stuck working their whole lives in minimum wage jobs, these days getting to the next level requires school or professional training which costs money and time, something minimum wage earners do not have.  I think some of this can be fixed with real skill training and certification in high school.  

#2192751 Biker Gang Beating

I am sure the driver was scared, thats why he took off and ran over 3 bikers, but he is still responsible for what he did to those 3 bikers.

I have seen a few different videos, it looks to me that the driver of the range rover rear ends a bike, I dont think it was a brake check, but he was slowing down, either way after the contact the driver flees and runs over 3 other bikers in the process.  regardless of who is responsible the initial collision, its clear that the driver of the range rover intentionally ran over the next 3 bikers and should be held accountable.  likewise the riders who chased him down and attacked the driver, are also responsible for their own actions.

#2188126 Might Trade In The GT

This will not happen.  He's coming from a mustang.


Let's be realistic with this.  Go with something you can drive into the dirt with little to no maintenance for a while.  And save up cash to buy something nice in the future, esp if it's going to be a commuter car.

there is no such thing, new cars need to be serviced, even a mustang is going to need a clutch or an alternator at some point.



E46 bimmers from what I gather are incredibly reliable. Its all the added components to the n54 that aren't. Like the hpfp, injectors, water pump, vanos solenoid, carbon build up, wastegate rattle. Those will break on nearly every single one - its just when. If you find one with all that shit replaced, pretty reliable vehicle. So the unreliability of the 3 series is stemming from shit related to n54 not the actual car itself. I bet the 328s are pretty reliable.

sure I can see a 328 being more reliable, less things to go wrong.

Thats not too bad I could live with that, so overall how would you rate its reliability?

#2181143 NK detonates nuke, Obama mad

Posted by hollywood on 12 February 2013 - 01:44 PM

War with NK would not be an easy war, they have a nuclear weapon, and if they can hit japan with it then we loose.  Its Chinas problem, I think it will be impossible for the north to invade the south.
