I DON’T WANT SELF DRIVING CARS
I want boring things like public transit
that comes so regularly I don’t
need to check a schedule.
I want fast passenger rail so accessible and
easy it’s preferable to suffering airports.
I want cities that aren’t built
@kingu_platypus_gidora I don’t know, to be honest, but trains work great. They’re fast, they’re regular and they were always perfectly on time.
I'm in my 50s and have no kids. By the time the world becomes uninhabitable I'll be long gone.
The world is controlled by governments who aren't going to make any meaningful changes.
So I don't intend to shorten my life stressing over something I can do absolutely nothing about.
I'll keep my car and my air conditioners and I'll fucking enjoy them.
@fossil I am in my 50 too and I do understand your point and sometime (if not often) shared it with you, but I do have a kid and he is cool and I so wish the best for him...
It's funny because I woke up this morning and my wife and I were just talking about this because I have to take her Jeep in for an oil change. Then I pull up my Fediverse and see this.
Car culture in the US is annoying. And the fact that in the US people seem to feel the need to buy a new car every 5 years... that just blows my mind.
@kingu_platypus_gidora nice picture of sapsan train which costs more than any working class person would be willing or able to pay for a ticket, fucking ridiculous prices
@girlmaya yeah, just check prices and it's not the most affordable transit ever! Hope the coffee is good :)
@kingu_platypus_gidora ive only heard from friends i dont live in russia but yea its ridiculous i hate capitalism
Just move to Japan.
The rest of us will continue enjoying the way ours cars let us travel to all those millions of places that will never have public transport, and let us stop to buy something or admire the view exactly when we choose.
Not to mention it is an odd city folk dream. In most of the United States are not a densely packed human anthill, like non-English speaking countries tend to be.
@kingu_platypus_gidora "walkability" just means density which means higher housing prices which means more homelessness
