Old money had not much choice to do with their money except ventures and philanthropy. Yuppies i've met are almost always ruthless opportunists and tend to think quite highly of themselves with some brainlet shaky moral framework around "something something generative wealth" that's so rhetorical it sounds like something straight out of a bitconnect seminar. I've met a few that are smart enough to own up to being terrible people but I notice most try to outrun it with frivolous spending and drugs.

It's in response to the quote of "A developed country is not a place where the poor have cars. It's where the rich use public transportation" by Gustavo Petro, which urbanists like to use as some sort of gotcha (without understanding the source). Petro was mayor of Bogotá at the time and now President (with an approval rating of 33%), but in no metric does Bogotá, HDI, GDP, etc. stack up to any given European or American city.

Yes planes make sense for coast to coast travel in America. But that's not the majority of air traffic in the US. Anything under 10 - 12 hour train travel is comfier on a train. If it's shorter than ~3 hours on a train you're getting from city center to city center faster than on a plane in most cases. On longer trips night trains are mega comfy way to travel. Hop on a train, sleep a full night in a proper bed, wake up in your destination next morning. And all that without having to get to the airport early so you can queue into getting molested and then wait for your plane, only to land way off from where you most likely want to go to.

I've throw 1000 kg of dirt into the back of my van. I've also transported plenty of deer and moose at the back of my van. It's a fucking work van. I can hose it off afterwards with a pressure washer. Why would I care what's in there? I'm assuming you wouldn't transport manure on the bed of a F150 and then not hose it off. The same works for vans.

Vans are objectively superior to trucks in almost every single use case. You have more space and it's covered from both niggers and weather.

>inb4 I need muh body on frame, four wheel drive and payload capacity
My van is body on frame, has both four wheel drive options and versions that are homologated all the way to 7000 kg gross weight, with ~4500 kg in payload. The F350 super duty gross weight is a measly 4500 kg.

For work purposes vans are superior to pickups in almost every single possible use case. And in the few use cases where you'd want a pickup you can build one on top of the van chassis with way more payload and bed space than on an American pickup truck.

Supertrain, from 1979. A broad-gauge atomic-powered luxury train, the show was trying to be "Love Boat" on rails. It was pretty awful. You can find some of the episodes on Youtube.

How do we stop these from being banned or regulated in america?

I don’t think people realize how bad it is. No public transit, no taxis, no bike lanes america is HELL. things like this are necessary. Everything is miles away and there’s not one bit of transportation.

For many it’s the only way out of the house at all.

I remember reading an article showing how a hybrid car like a Prius uses almost the same amount of energy per km as a carnivore cyclist. A vegan would be using less, and that Indian is most likely vegan so yeah it is a greener alternative if you don't mind sweating your ass off in the Indian heat. Another point in favor of cycling is that agriculture (including animal products) is mostly carbin neutral, as in the carbon that cows burp out didn't come from the underground, it came from the atmosphere.

How hard is it to get into repairing and building ebikes and scooters
>>
I think the biggest issue is getting parts and documentation
>>
>>1992113
unless you're a sparky/engineer or you repair electrical goods already then probably very difficult. I've heard of courses/qualifications starting to pop up but really it's fucked because of the changing standards/no standards and actually getting parts since nobody supports these bikes past a few years.
Oh proprietary software too.
I fix electric bikes but we refuse to deal with the electrical components because it's a nightmare. Which doesn't make it easier because you're sending it away to a dealership that also cannot fix it and doesn't support it anymore and you're just relying on the dealers ability to hassle the company into providing support.

Well, if the old railjet is anything to go by, that probably is warranted.
Sure, the red and black color scheme on the outside looks great, but damn, are they an ugly, dimly lit and uncomfortable dungeon inside. IC and ICE are miles ahead in comfort and look and feel.
>>1992142
Wait, what? ÖBB finally has proper carriages? I'm still mad the that Frankfurt-Graz EC now isn't done by DB anymore but by ÖBB. While not as bad as the railjet, their IC carriages suck too. And they're generally even more disfunctional than DBs oldest IC ones.

That's most definitely an unreliable, finnicky two-stroke. These sorts of wrench jobs are all sorts of things, but the one thing they aren't are hassle-free and headache-free mobility options. Dropping in a hub motor, bolting a battery to your bottle mount and zip-tying a few extra wires to your frame is literally ten times easier and ten times more reliable.
