Only if you're fat, if you're not and you can get the hang of it its almost effortless.
Guess that explains why there are as many foot and ankle clinics in the US as there are Starbucks.

This was my favourite, not sure if it was supposed to be funny.

Walk-In means you don't need an appointment.

Nah, the government isn't investing in railroads.

They left that to Warren Buffet and his Berkshire Hathaway company.

It would confuse the living **** out of the government to make a profit on something, apparently.

We have lots of walk-in health clinics here including dental and physio, it's not that much of a surprise.

In Россия everyone goes by train as inter city automobile infrastructure is practically non-existent, you can't fly everywhere and it is too expensive anyway.

At some time in Holland, I lived in one city, studied in two others and was pursueing a girl in a fourth, so that involved quite a lot of training. As a Dutch student you get a free weekdays train pass though.

Large cities in the states need to move up their game on local public transport... Fucking Japan and Europe is doing great because of it. I guess John is right, its hard to kill the American car culture.

People take the train for the experience, not the speed. Same way cruise ships survive.

It also costs a shit load more because it takes longer. You have to pay the staff for a shit load more. You have to provide food, sewage facilities for a shit load longer. There are also huge costs to maintenance to tracks, not needed in the air. Because of the length of journey you have to provide more space so people can walk around (or sleep).
Ture, matter of fact, I have considered making my next vacation a cross country trip by rail.
Why? Just rent an awesome car.

I had to catch a train and make a change once and I had about 2 mins to make the change in a massive overly complex shithole called York train station. Needless to say I missed it and had to wait 58 minutes for the next one...

Trains suck, we should dig up all the metals that are wasted on tracks and sell them to China or something. And build roads where they were.
1. don't have to drive

2. see parts of the country you could not see by road

3. a different experience

4. don't have to drive.

I'm pretty sure anywhere you could see on a train you could see in a nice 21st century car.

Where you been anyway, like a week since you posted.

Jay was right about railroads. I am sick of hearing liberals talk about railroads. I will vote against railroads.

Also, I am not going to carry a refillable water bottle. I am going to keep buying plastic water bottles from Costco.

From the standpoint of arguing with a corporate apologist, the rail people have lost plausible deniability. They brought up concerns about work conditions and public safety that were shot down, so they're "prime suspects for rail sabotage! This couldn't have just happened out of nowhere, after all."

We still need things like planes, trains, and automobiles to move things around the country. We just need them better regulated. I don't want to hear about "but the costs!" from execs and celebrating their nth year in a row of record profits at their private country clubs, their pocket politicians, or their lower class internet sycophants.

It's better than being one of those people who want wealth disparity to continue on the 0.00001% chance they get to be a privileged rich.
