Is this a joke? Better to be thought a fool and remain silent then to speak and remove all doubt.
Who's talking about burning your brains?
Who told you?
It would be nice if we could adopt old technology first. Maybe start with high speed mass transit. Places like France, China, and Japan can do it and we just fall on our stupid faces.
It's not that we can't do it, it's that Americans don't like taking trains or that the locked destinations aren't very convenient. Plus, even if we do it, it's only somewhat practical in the most populated areas. Our country is set up a lot different than those across the pond.
Oh we don't doubt you are.
I’ve been to one of those countries. The transit system is over priced compared to just flying or busses. It’s quicker and the views were nice. But you are talking about over a hundred dollars a ticket for round trips.
Mass transit is not wanted by the citizenry ... and of course you and your ilk know better than the voters.
Really though, how is the California bullet train coming along again? How much was “invested” into that again?
Wrong person ... try again. No charge.
The problem is when you get off the mass transit you have to walk a ways. The fat asses in this country won't or can't do that.
You’re out of your mind. If they had high speed rail between here and Chicago, we’d be the Far West Suburbs. Get on a train and be downtown Chi in 45 minutes? Property values through the roof.
Tell me that wouldn’t be popular overnight.
That’s my point. We can’t seem to get it done.
I don't care about it.
I think your ideas are constrained by stubbornness.
And yet you opine.
I appreciate you being here.
