    Yeah that photo was suppressed so hard it was only covered in Time magazine in 2014 by Ben Cosgrove http://time.com/3879426/the-american-way-photos-from-the-great-ohio-river-flood-of-1937/ If you really believed this conspiracy theory you’d have to also believe that all the microfilm of all the newspapers...

    “By your definition, the US is not a capitalist nation, then, as huge sectors such as the military are run jointly with the state, including international sales. I'd also point out that most capitalist nations that supply health care to...

    “suspect the same thing applies to capitalism. It's more a brand and label than a coherent set of practices, at least as far as I can see. Because capitalism is so nebulous,” It’s not at all nebulous. It is “an...

    I’m sorry you don’t like the definition of capitalism, but alss that is how it is defined whether you like it or not The Roman economy was quite a bit more then large slave plantations, there were also these things...
  • Commented on Crawling from the wreckage
    You have to remember when you use words like “Rome” you are referring to a thousand years of history that ended at the very beginning of the modern age Much of that period had significant economic expansion due to both...

    “105: the Roman Empire ran on slavery, not capitalism. And taxing the whole rest of the empire for the benefit of Rome. You had merchants in ancient Rome, but absolutely nobody who could reasonably be identified as a capitalist. “...

    I’ll remember that the next time I’m pulljng some real wheel drive out of a ditch in the snow Of course the real equation is 1+ 0 = ditch but 3+0= nothing happened...
  • Commented on Crawling from the wreckage
    All wheel drives are more about safety then off-roading. They are an order of magnitude safer in bad weather and snow...

    Even in cities in the US you usually end up on the highway and I really don’t see that changing I’ve seen a fair amount of these Mercedes electric smart cars around SF. They start at $23k https://www.smartusa.com There is...

    The problem with the various flavors of velomobiles in the US at least is they have similar safety issues as motorcycles. Which means you are in bad trouble, probably dead, if you get into a wreck at speed. One of...

    I was doing my numbers without seats folded down Your Skada Octavia has a trunk size of 590 liters , so you beat the Chevy Bolt by 23%. So in theory the Bolt probdbly fits 4 of your suitcases ....

    At least in the US a lot of rural state highways are two lane, undivided with 55mph speed limits. Which means head on collisions at 110mph In the urban areas you are mostly dealing with interstates which while they can...

    “Equally seriously, except for the Smart EQ fortwo (which is, realistically, almost a joke), they are all significantly larger than my not-miniscule Skoda Fabia hatchback, and most are much larger and MUCH heavier.” Your Skoda Fabia is 3,992mm long, 1,732mm...

    “People who drive, especially those who drive "safer cars", are simply pushing the risk onto other people.” Not true they are lowering the overall risk . If two modern, safe(er) cars get into an accident the chances of either occupant...

    If you really wanted to do that you’d need different speed limits for different people and different cars My 76 year old father should realistically be about half my speed limit if you let him on the roads at all...
  • Commented on Crawling from the wreckage
    In the US they generally already use an 85/15 split to determine speed limits . https://priceonomics.com/is-every-speed-limit-too-low/...

    The way Uber and Lyft’s shared rides products work is quite a bit more complicated then just sharing identical pickup and drop off points. They essentially assume some overhead of picky people up and dropping them off on different places...

    “What stops us using "cars as a service" right now is not a lack of an AI in each car, or a lack of electrification. It is that late-stage capitalism doesn't work that way.” Actually it turns out late stage...
