Some do... those are called "handed" props (bc they are like your hands that way). However, that does add to the cost, and now one engine is more "critical" than the other in case of failure on one side. Overcoming that left-turning tendency depends on the plane design. Size/configuration of the rudder, engine distance and angle from the centerline. Push-pull types (engines in front and rear of the fuselage) cancel each other out. Pic is Burt Rutan's Boomerang... assymetrical and weird-looking af, but it was designed to minimize all of that for easy handling even with an engine failure.

sub 60s is pretty comfy here and it never rains so there's no excuse to not fly
Having propellers on a multiengine aircraft spin in opposite directions removes the critical engine issue.
I'm trying to imagine what the performance and handling issues would be like on this plain if the nose engine failed.
What's the point of being able to cancel posts before they go through if it doesn't fucking do anything.

Anons, how much embarrassment am I in for.
Depends what part of the UK you live in.
>why it is actually terrible
-shitty unreliable commuter trains
-commuter trains either have terrible frequencies further out, or run on saturated lines forcing them to make all or almost all stops; only one 4-track line in the whole country
-badly maintained non-HSR infrastructure (see recent Barcelona derailment)
-terrible frequencies (large parts of the spanish railway network have fewer than 4 trains per DAY)
-no coordination between trains despite low frequencies
-no cadence-based schedules (as in a train ever X minutes/hours)
-mostly ancient rolling stock on regional trains with constant breakdowns (would be ok if they were properly maintained at least)
-retarded pricing system with a gorillion different pricing levels instead of just HSR and non-HSR pricing

>obsession to put everything underground / below ground leve
It's a lot of factors. The root of this is actually politicians wanting to speculate and create work for construction companies. Construction is big business in Spain, it's tied to urbanistic speculation which is also big business. Example:
>have rail tracks in a city
>politician makes a ruckus bc muh unsafe muh nuisance muh dangerous

South, will be going into London, but also to Bath.
Southern is a total mess. But with that said, Great Western are pretty good, TfL is pretty much the best rail in the UK (not just the Underground and DLR, but also the Overground and TfL Rail/Crossrail), and the likes of Thameslink and so on are pretty good as well.
Just avoid Southern and you'll be grand.

Why don't more places have jughandles for left turns?

Because they're stupid
This diagram confuses me since I come from a left hand traffic country.

At any rate, the main reason why they're probably not in use is because of either signalled junctions with dedicated lanes for changing direction, or roundabouts.
The more I think about it, the more I'm confused as to how not normal roundabouts are outside of Europe. Roundabouts are everywhere in Europe, and they're so mundane. Yet everything has to be complex and convoluted it seems elsewhere.
Thanks for telling us that you're from Europe.
>complex and convoluted

you mean like this?
No, those are just 5 mini-roundabouts with really simple rules.
Giveway to traffic on your right, keep in the right lane for the direction you're going in, and don't drive into anyone else.

I want you to please explain something to me anon. I live in an inner suburb of a city. I walk to work, I walk to the supermarket, I walk to the barber. I can walk to the CBD or catch a 15-minute interval bus and get access to everything there. If I need furniture moved or installed, I can hire someone else to do it for me. Where in your conception of my life do I need a car to fulfill any of my responsibilities?

October 28 at Chongqing, China, a bus carrying 15 people including the driver fell from a bridge into the river after crashing with a car. Because the river is 70+ meter deep and other complexity in environment, there are difficulty in search and rescue task, and they are unable to recover any survivor from the accident.

After they recovered the SD card from the remain of the bus, they are able to put puzzles together and tell what happened in the bus before it crash into the river.

Ridership plummets whenever helmets are mandated - see Australia - and it's exactly what we don't need in times when cities have an urgent demand for alternative transport methods.

In other words go ahead and do mandate helmets if you want people to become cagers.
But that's what the general public wants. So politicians will pander to drivers by making laws that discourage cycling.
They want people to cycle, yet force stupid things like helmets and force slow riders drive with cagers (and after that fatality rates sky rocket).
Its often 2 different levels of government working against each other. Cities, inherently more liberal want cycling. However at the state level the government might be held by conservatives who pander to their ignorant spiteful supporters.
People who want mandatory things should be mandatory castrated. You're ruining the world.

You're probably the same stubborn types that make any other mandatory laws required because you insist on forcing your ways to others be it appropriate or completely out of place.

America has no state owned carrier and now even low cost airlines are finding serious competition from ultra low cost airlines like Frontier, this happens even though Frontier is hot garbage who cancels at least a quarter of their booked flights and will often mail luggage if weight restrictions are exceeded due to weather.

It's shit, but it's cheap. Americans would prefer flying buses to what people normally conceive of air travel, if only because the former has no security checks.
International flights burgers is eh tier. But domestic burgers btfo anybody. In terms of choice, quality and price barely anybody else can even compete.
I mean flying in Japan international is awesome but domestic is horrible. Isn't it great that you can get on a 777 with 513 other people but you have only one small airline that has more than 30 inches of pitch for a domestic flight?
