Never really found Byron all that interesting to be honest. I'm sure I missed what it's all about but I found it pretentious and filled with tourists paying the premium just to say they've been. It's not like we have a shortage of great coastal towns.

Commented by /u/time_to_reset in /r/Bisforbuild on February 1, 2023 08:00:42

I'm curious to understand what happened in Texas during that police incident that caused him to lose his legs. Regardless though, I don't understand why the first response by US cops always seems to be to draw a gun. Is deescalation just not taught at all? Is the level of competence so low that most cops simply are unable to? Speaking of competence, or lack thereof. If they were so afraid he would throw the knife, how about you stand a little further back? Also, 10 fucking shots. That's not neutralising a threat. That's wanting to kill someone. They drew their guns wanting to end someone's life. America is a scary fucking country. To the point that a black person should be able to get asylum in another country out of fear for persecution and human rights violations.

For what it's worth, I don't think this is a bad idea for the reasons given. Lower circulation supply doesn't have any real value, it's just propping up the price short term. Similarly the argument that it would take away staking rewards from others is only relevant to those that are staked themselves. It's a selfish argument and not in the best interest of LUNC. So as long as what's in the staked burn wallet can never make it back into circulation, this idea makes sense for LUNC. The actual problem however is the role of staking. You stake with a validator, but a validator is not a passive role. A validator validates transactions and is also required to vote on community proposals. The more is staked with a certain validator, the more transactions they validate and the more power their vote has. So as the staked amount from the burns increases, it decentralises the network. 0.2% of every transaction would go towards decentralising the network. It would put more and more power in the hands of that single validator and additionally it creates a single point of failure (making it a tempting target for an attack). ​ So yeah, bit silly people are burning you down like they are, they clearly also don't really understand how it all works.

We threw snowballs on passing cars as kids. One day we all threw snowballs at a truck who slammed on the brakes and jacknifed. Started running before the truck had even fully come to a stop and didn't stop running until I was home.

Still, they had them move at least a little bit. I'm willing to forgive them some creative liberties to tell a story. Tokyo Drift actually is my favourite of the FF movies because it is a lot about driving and car culture. Also a lot of scenes I feel show a true love for driving, even that scene you posted with them sliding in the mountains. If you take away the drifting, that serenity is what I love about driving at night myself. Also that scene when they slide across Shibuya crossing is one of my favourite scenes in any movie.

That's influencer marketing. Affiliate means you get a commission for every sale made that's directly attributable to your, often through a referral link.

I tell my friend that they should buy your product and when my friend buys something from you, you give me back some money. It's confusing because it's so closely related to other forms of marketing and sales. ​ **Reselling** I buy your product and sell it myself at a profit. In this model I'm required to provide after sales service, handle warranty and I need to make an investment upfront in purchasing products. ​ **Dropshipping** I sell your product in my own store. I do my own marketing and set my own pricing and basically pretend to be the person that makes the product, but when someone buys from me, I pay you to actually make and deliver the product. In this model I'm required to provide after sales service, handle warranty but I don't need to make an investment upfront in purchasing products. ​ **Affiliate marketing (referral marketing)** I simply refer customers to you and get paid by you when you make a sale In this model the customer knows they are buying from you and that you will be the one doing the after sales service, handle warranty etc. **Pay-per-click marketing** You pay me a little bit of money for every person I send to you website, regardless of what that person does on your website.

I'll add an angle for someone that uses paid plugins and how we justify the cost. Wordpress has a built in form maker, but it's quite limited in functionality. Fairly common functionality for a form is to have conditional logic for example. It doesn't matter really what that is, just know it's a feature many people want. To get that functionality I have the following options: 1. I could try and modify the built-in Wordpress form maker myself to add it. I'm not a web developer, but given enough time I'm sure I could make it. Say it would take me a month to build the required functionality (extremely optimistic). I cost about $50 per hour, there's 40 hours in the week and 4ish weeks in a month. The cost to the business would be about $8,000 and a lot of time. 2. I could hire a web developer to build it for me who will be much faster and will be a much more reliable option. They would probably charge a couple thousand dollars, but I would get what I need without having to do anything myself. Let's say they charge about $4,000, meaning the cost to the business is $4,000 and a little bit of time. ​ Or I could just pay the $100 per year or so for a plugin and get what I need within minutes and I know that the plugin will do exactly what I need right out of the box, will be easy to use and reliable, and will receive regular updates. Makes the plugin a pretty good deal for us!

Same, I use my 5x optical zoom all the time (Oppo Reno 10x). My only complaint is that they put a shitty sensor behind it because periscope zoom was still a fairly new thing at the time.

Oh I don't have the money for it either which is why I said "a bit more expensive". Not "nice laptop" money like is currently the case. More like your $600 fridge becomes an $800 fridge when there's a Google Home Hub functionality added. I would pay the $200 premium. Not the $1000 or more that's being charged now. Better yet, they should make it modular. Being able to buy the screen as an option instead of it being an integral part of the fridge.

Commented by /u/time_to_reset in /r/Futurology on January 26, 2023 17:05:19

I actually think there's value in those. My SO likes watching Youtube for example while cooking and if we're out of something you can add it directly to your shopping list. We now have a Google Home Hub for that which is plenty capable and does exactly what we need, but having it built into the fridge would save us having the Google Home take up space on the kitchen counter. Similarly, if I pick up groceries after work, I might not always remember if we still had x. Being able to check a photo of the inside of the fridge in such a case is a nice convenience. Is any of this nescessary? Absolutely not, but in a world where we have wifi connected hair brushes and water cookers with apps, a fridge with a screen seems on the more tamer side. All else being equal I'd be willing to pay a bit extra for that functionality, not with a "smart" toaster, water cooker and any sort of brush though.

This was across multiple contracts. The silly thing is that in plenty of cases it wasn't deliberate or malicious. The person I would be talking to simply álso didn't read the contract. HR so often just gives interviewers a list of bullet points and they then relay those bullet points to the interviewee. In those cases people would be very apologetic and they would go out of their way to make it right and have the contract updated. I've also had people reluctantly update contracts and I've had one company say they would update it, but would ask me not to mention anything to others in the company. In the end though it simply becomes a new round of contract negotiations. What you're offering me is not what I want. Sometimes you walk away, sometimes you compromise and sometimes you get your way. I'm mindful that this is all easy for me to say though. I happen to have had options and that late in the process people really are reluctant to have to start over, so you have a bit of leverage. Not everyone has that luxury, which is why I feel some employee protections should be put in place. Like a requirement to have contracts be sent beforehand. I also wouldn't mind some sort of law that says contracts should be more easily readable for the average person. Pennsylvania for example already had the Plain Language Law which requires certain contracts to be easily understandable. In certain industries it's also common to send a letter of intent to new employees which contains a summary of the key terms and conditions of a job position. That is sent to the employee before any contracts are sent. There could be a law that says the document which is most beneficial for the employee is the leading document for example. That way there's less of an incentive to hide things inside a big contract. Anyways, tl;dr, please read your contracts. Plenty of people will appreciate your thoroughness and those that don't often don't have your best interest at heart.

Well some of the things off the top of my head that I found are: * I was told the non-compete was just for direct competitors only. In the contract it said that working for any company in the same industry including overseas, regardless of the position I'd take, was not allowed. * I would be given a laptop by the company. Turned out that they would take a fee out of my before-tax salary to pay for it. * "We pay for all your travel expenses", but in the contract it actually said "we pay travel expenses up to" * "This is a fulltime contract", however it turned out they wanted you to come in on weekends and evenings as well. For example you'd have a 40 hour contract, but they would only count 36 during the week and would want you to come in every other weekend. * I was told beforehand how many days of leave I would have, but upon reading the contract it turned out they were counting sick days as part of that number (depending on where you live, you can't take sick days just as days off) * Days off in general is a common one. Like not being allowed to take certain days off (usually around holidays). Not being allowed to take more than x amount of days off in one go. Not being allowed to carry over days. Days expiring under certain conditions etc. * Similarly overtime is also one that they get you with a lot. Paid overtime doesn't start counting after a certain time, if at all etc. ​ Some of these things aren't even legal... On the flipside of it though, they once gave me a contract with a typo in the amount of days off I would get. 200 instead of 20.

Commented by /u/time_to_reset in /r/todayilearned on January 24, 2023 20:01:17

I do also feel there's a culture of not reading contracts and in some cases I feel people are actively discouraged from doing so. I've had employers, HR and others give me a contract and a pen with the expectation I was going to sign right there on the spot and saying you're going to take it home to review before signing is responded to with surprise. There have also been situations where I was expected to sign on the spot and so I would sit awkwardly across from someone for 45 minutes while reading through a contract. I've definitely found things that were wrong (often just mistakes because the other party did a sloppy job, some would've been beneficial for me, like 200 holidays instead of 20 etc), but there have also been situations where what was on paper was different from what I had been told. Like non-compete clauses being a lot more strict than what I was led to believe. I've definitely also seen contracts get more and more difficult to read, to the point that when I come across a section that feels weirdly complicated compared to the rest of the contract, I will pay extra attention because that's where I've found they try to hide things that are not in your favour. ​ The worst part about it is that I feel it's all deliberate. Like the things I catch them on are all relatively minor, but they all add up, slowly giving away more and more to those in power. And it's rigged against the most vulnerable. I happen to be able to read contracts only just well enough to pick up on at least some things and happen to have the personality that doesn't care to sit awkwardly across from someone for 45 minutes reading a contract and looking things up on my phone, but most people don't. Yet these people are up against professionals that put together these contracts. People that have not only gone to school for this stuff, but have the benefit of time and complete access to resources. We are due for a hard reset in terms of power balance I think.

It doesn't mean that people can't speak English, or speak English most of the times, including at home. It's based on data that asks if any other languages besides English are spoken at home. As an example: say you're a 2nd generation immigrant, you were born here, always speak in English, but your Italian dad might refer back to Italian every now and again when he's angry with you. In the case of this map you would show up as not speaking English at home.

They added a comment from Fair Work. I'm all for hating on images ripped from Reddit and just getting reposted, but I consider this an actual article which is adding relevant new information. ​ >According to Fair Work Australia there are “limited situations when an employer can make a deduction from an employee’s pay or require an employee to pay money”. An employer can only deduct a worker’s pay if the employee agrees in writing and it is allowed under their award. They cannot deduct if it “is unreasonable in the circumstances” or if the worker is aged under 18 and the parent or guardian has not agreed.

Are you basing that based on something or is it your gut feeling? 30 years of routine maintenance isn't cheap either and there will still be the need for a replacement at some point. The Harbour Bridge for example has a $20m annual maintenance budget and it [supposedly cost $1.5b]( to build in today's money. $20m \* 90 years is $1.8b. The Westgate cost $202m to build in the 1970s but since then at least $340m has been put into strengthening it and another $70m to repaint it.

The amount of sensitive personal documentation you're required to hand over for the most basic of things and the lack of regulation on companies to keep that stuff safe. I used to consider a passport for example something you would only share for really critical things like you would show it at a bank to get a loan or for immigration to register you. But now we're required to email it, it gets copied everywhere and for stuff like rental applications, getting a prepaid sim card etc. And then when there is the inevitable breach, these companies throw their hands up and say "welp, too bad, sorry people" and that's about it. The fine that Optus faces is $2.2 million over their breach. That's 0.1% of their profit in 2022. Hell, with fines that laughable I wouldn't invest nor care about cyber security either.

A long time ago 60 Degrees Motorcycles used to advertise that they could help out with aftermarket exhausts, but there's nothing on their website about it anymore. A big problem is that they're required to take photos nowadays, so you might get away with something like a speedo or a lightbulb not working, but as everything is photographed an exhaust that clearly doesn't look like it complies with regulations, is never going to fly unfortunately. Sometimes you can borrow a stock exhaust from someone in a Facebook group. Otherwise Gumtree/Ebay/wreckers are your best options. I believe you can bring your bike to a mechanic, have them perform the RWC and they can give you an additional 7 days to fix the bike so you have 21 days in that case instead of 14.

I've seen a grand total of one which was one of those display cars parked in a high traffic area in a ski resort so I'm pretty sure they just haven't built that many yet vs the outgoing model which they probably sold at a discount towards the end. I personally quite like the new generation. Its styling might be a bit more polarising than the previous model, but I like it. In fairness, I like unpainted bodywork on cars in general, especially if they're made to be used and made to get and be dirty, which is what the WRX feels like to me. It never was a traditionally pretty car. It's a tool. Something to have fun in. The CVT stuff is all quite silly though and I don't understand what the reasoning is for all of that. I really wanted a Levorg to replace my Spec B Legacy, but they never even offered any sort of manual for that.

I think that through TV etc we have unreasonable expectations on response times. I've been guilty of that myself. On tv shows, but even on shows like Highway Patrol it looks as if they instantly respond when a call comes in. When I looked into it though, there's just not that many police officers. VicPol has something like 22,000 employees on 6.7 million people. One VicPol employee for every 300 or so people. And that's employees, not all of those are police officers and not all of those are working at 2 in the morning. ​ I completely understand that it was super scary, I would probably be freaking out too, but I think that dispatchers probably are instructed to ignore emotions as being scared is not the same as being in immediate danger. From your description it could've very well been someone under the influence or with mental health issues that thought they were at their own house or that of a mate's. It's apparently quite common.

It's more that tax rates in the Netherlands are much higher and as a result your disposable income is much lower. The Netherlands is designed to keep everyone happy and healthy, but also fairly equal. Tall poppy syndrome is very big as well. That results in things like taxes being much higher. For example in the US the highest income tax bracket is 37%. In the Netherlands it starts at 37.7% and goes up to 49.5%. Similarly sales tax in the US is on average 6.5% but in the Netherlands it's 21%. In the US fuel tax on petrol is $0.184 per gallon. In the Netherlands it's $5.25 per gallon (that's excluding the 21% sales tax which would add another dollar to that amount). Buying a house? That's 10.4% in transfer tax. In the US many states don't have any transfer tax at all and for those that do have it, it's between 0.01% and 4%. And these are just a few examples. You get a lot in return for your taxes and other financial obligations. There's lots of social benefits, good healthcare, infrastructure is in much, much better condition than in the US, etc. The flip side of it is that for example a heart surgeon takes home around €6,000 compared to a bus driver that takes home around €2,200, but also gets additional breaks on things like health insurance costs and school costs for kids. So you'll often find that people work fewer days, because why work fulltime and/or pursue a big career if you're not all that much better off financially anyways.

In my experience people don't get deterred by cameras, they simply cover themselves up and disable the cameras. Better still, if they don't know there are cameras and you can view those cameras remotely, you can call the police yourself. ​ The thing with interior cameras is that you have to set them up well.

Pantone colours are not unique colours. They don't sell paint or ink. For their regular colours that most people use, what they have done is standardise combinations of cyan, magenta, yellow and black. Pantone 7424 is 0.0000 cyan, 0.7956 magenta, 0.5304 yellow and 0.2902 black for example. Then after the value comes C for coated, U for uncoated and M for matte. You can take that value and have someone make you an ink or paint with those requirements. You can make sure that your designer or print house uses those values in their work for example so that it doesn't matter how their screen is calibrated, as long as the printer that is used is calibrated correctly you'll get the right colour. Similarly a HEX colour is like Pantone, but for RGB values because it's used for web (so for use on displays) #87421F for example is 53% red, 26% green and 12% blue. The problem Pantone solves is that it's difficult to make sure everyone and everything involved in the production of something is using calibrated equipment. But if you ask a printhouse with well calibrated equipment to print a certain value, that's what you're going to get. It's just that that might look different from how that value looked on your poorly calibrated equipment. HEX/RGB to print is always a bad idea btw because those colours don't overlap. An approximation is made and colours can look way off.

Well, yeah I did dismissed your argument because you seem convinced that you your choice isn't influenced by marketing. I already told you marketing is way more than just an ad on a radio, but you keep determining that that is what marketing is. You specifically said "I rely on worth of mouth". Could it be possible that those people are not as strong willed as you claim to be, and that maybe they were influenced by marketing? If you then decide "all on your own" to buy something on their recommendation, was that then not steered through marketing? ​ You also claim to do your own research claiming again that because of that marketing has no effect on you. How do you do that research? Say you want shoes. Let's go with something as simple as shortlisting? Are you familiar with all the brands and all the shoe models in the world? Do you travel the world to see what they have in store in Mongolia for example? Or to keep it more realistic, do you know every independent shoe maker in your country? Or do you rely on what you see in stores, what you see the people around you wear, what the internet recommends? And how much of that do you think is influenced by marketing? ​ You also say that plenty of people just buy what's on the sale rack and thus aren't influenced by marketing. When those people go out to buy clothes, do you think those people are more likely to walk into an outlet store or into the Louis Vuitton store? I might say something radical here, but I'm going to say they're probably not going into the Louis Vuitton store. Why do you think that is? ​ In marketing and in business as a whole they make profiles of customers that go down to details like the type of cars that profile drives, how they speak, what types of jobs they work etc. The 2016 Trump campaign is a good example of how it's done: [](

Thanks, that's a great compliment! I ran into a similar problem I think you might be experiencing in that especially on agency/supplier side, you tend to get pidgeonholed. You are assigned a specific role at some point and that's the role you tend to get stuck in. You become an art director, a media buyer, a social media manager. You become a tool in someone else's toolkit really. Over time you become an absolute legend in that one little specialist job, but you are always downstream from where the bigger decisions are made. If you're lucky you are informed of the strategy, what other channels are being used and how, etc, so you can provide advice on how your channel could fit in best. But it's just as common to just be pressing the buttons following someone else's direction without ever being given the full picture. My recommendation would be to try and find opportunties to work with the CMO or the head of marketing of a company, or at least be close enough that you get access to their work. For example by reading their strategies etc. and then try to understand why certain choices are made and how they ensure their strategies are implemented/executed on. Not as someone that feeds into the strategy yet, but to learn how those people think and make decisions. I suggest a medium to large business. With small businesses you run the risk that the person in that head of marketing role isn't very good but is saved by a strong product or sales team and with a very large company there's often so many layers and moving parts that it's difficult to find out the thinking behind certain decisions. What I found is that it's all much more technical, analytical and business-minded is than I thought. Which coincidentally fit my personality much better than being a "creative". Good luck!

You might be convinced that you are absolutely unique. Your own person. Fully in control of every decision you make, but the truth is that you are constantly influenced by what you see around you. By what you see on tv, what you see your friends wear, what you see in stores. You might respond to that saying you don't care about fashion or that you deliberately go against what is fashionable and that you seek out non-trendy clothing. But I'm going to go out on a limb here and say you're probably not naked right now, so somehow there was a company out there that just happened to be making something that you considered worthy enough of your hard earned money. Do you think it's possible that that company was specifically targeting people that think like you? That they positioned themselves in a way that would make them seem appealing to people like you through their product designs, price points and type of advertising? Marketing is way more than on-the-nose banners of a product with a big red "discount" sticker on it. Those ads might indeed not work on you, but I would argue that they're probably not made to work on you. They will work on the people they're designed for in the same way "good" ads that were designed for people like you will work on you.

There's so many variables here. Let's take the claim that middle aged drivers have an equal amount of accidents per kilometer driven. Manuals are more often enthusiast drivers. Do those drivers pay more attention because the manual forces them to be involved with driving more or is it simply because they are generally more involved with driving? If it's the latter, would the average manual driver be safer than the average automatic driver when both are given an auto? Or you could go the other way. Enthusiast drivers tend to drive more "enthusiastically", potentially causing more accidents as a result of that, not because of the difference in transmission. There's also the types of vehicles that have manuals. They are often enthusiast vehicles. Higher performance, rear wheel drive, etc. Probably more likely to get into accidents. Is the conclusion taking that into account or are they comparing 1,000 km in a Viper ACR to 1,000 km in a Prius? (I can't tell from the article). My completely unqualified gut says a better way to compare would be to look at enthusiast vehicles that come with both a manual and an automatic option only and compare the differences in accident rates between those. Probably excluding any accidents that where the driver was not at fault. It becomes a small sample size that way though and it's still super flawed, for example an automatic 911 Carrera S will probably be driven much more in stop and go traffic vs a manual 911 Carrera S that might be more of a weekend toy.

The real grim reality is that the propaganda pushed by these companies is getting traction, which is proven by your post. Paying people below living wage because you found a loophole allowing you not to do so is not some sort of good thing. You aren't helping anyone. It's exploiting desperaration and abusing the fact that some people aren't able to fully do the maths. Worse still, it's eroding opportunties for this group to get ahead. The hospitality sector as a whole is becoming a slave to these companies. It's allowing other companies to pay less as well, because well it's more than your other options etc. Also the whole thing about these companies not making a profit is a lie. Sure, on paper they make no money but Uber's CEO is able to make a living wage to the tune of $20 million USD last year. Their CFO had to make do with $2.5 million USD. And that's their reported salaries. There will be plenty of side deals, stock options and other ways that those in power use to gain wealth. And if these poor companies and their poor C suite and investors really weren't able to make money, ánd their employees can't be paid a decent wage, you know what? We call that a shitty business. If a normal business was in that situation we would say they probably don't deserve to be in business anymore. But when some overseas tech company does it, we should applaud them for their charity work? Give me a break. We are being sold out and you're cheering them on.

1. Minimum property standards. The fact that single pane glass, black roofs and next to no insulation in the walls is still legal is not only irresponsible with climate change being a real issue, but it's also actively widening the gap between those that have an those that haven't. Those that have are able to improve their properties so their energy costs are reduced and increase the value of their assets. Those that have not are stuck with ever increasing costs and no way to do anything about them. 2. Public EV infrastructure and support (this one partially ties into the 1st point with requiring EV chargers in rental properties). The cost of driving disproportionally affects people with lower incomes. Those people generally live further away from their jobs and other services, often don't own their homes, drive less fuel efficient cars and the cost for fuel and maintenance take up a larger percentage of their incomes. EVs generally are lot cheaper per km than petrol and diesel cars, but if you are unable to charge at home (because you're not allowed to install a charger in your rental property) and you're not able to charge anywhere else, they become a non-option. Something higher incomes, those who generally own their homes, are far less affected by. Additionally due to their price and the government not providing any incentives (by not charging LCT for example) they are completely out of reach for the class that would get the most benefit from them. The class that can afford them however also generally has more options available to reduce the financial impact of a high cost purchase, like better financing rates, company leases and tax benefits. Because of all of this manufacturers also don't bring their more affordable models over to our country because they know it's primarily the higher incomes that are buying their cars. So while having the ability to narrow the wealth gap, it's again further increasing the divide (and there's again an environmental impact as well). I'm aware of all the arguments that we should encourage less driving with better public transport. We should, but that again primarily benefits those with higher incomes that are able to live closer to public transport infrastructure and that are able to walk/cycle to their supermarket. It also pushes up property values in specific areas, again benefiting those that already have while doing little for those that don't.

I used to drive heaps for work and often drove at night. I was young and with that mindset that you always had to work your ass off no matter what. I would go for 10 hour drives after having been awake for 20 hours already, dumb shit like that. My employer never cared. Fell asleep behind the wheel once in the middle of the night and woke up 4 lanes over on the emergency lane from gravel hitting the underside of the car, maybe a meter away from the barrier. Instead of interpreting that as a sign that maybe I had to slow down a little I started driving around with a fork I would push into my thigh when I would start feeling drowsy. The only thing that prevented me from getting into an accident is me getting another job I think.

There's quite a few systems out there now, but most, like GM's Super Cruise, Ford's BlueCruise, Mercedes' Drive Pilot and the MobilEye system used in cars like BMW, Nissan, VAG and others all use the much safer camera monitoring system to make sure the driver is paying attention to the road. Tesla insists on using less safe, but cheaper solutions like relying fully on cameras to know what's going on outside and a simple sensor in the steering wheel to determine a driver is paying attention.

I was dead set on getting them. Then they were delayed for a long time to get to my country in which time the Galaxy Beans came out which were cheaper, smaller and according to reviews were better. I often like Microsoft for doing something different and new, especially design wise. I still think these earbuds look cool. The Zune looked amazing. The Lumia phones were cool. I've always loved the Microsoft Duo. But then when they finally release the final product they often do something simple that makes them objectively worse than the products they're competing with, like specs that are significantly behind the competition or with half baked software. Or they simply don't market it at all. They do that so often it makes you wonder if it's a strategic choice. Like if the product does decently while sandbagged this heavily, then it's worth investing in further. If not, kill it.

Failure is a big word. F1 is extremely competitive. The differences between teams is often measured in hundreds of a second. The worst team on the grid is maybe just a couple of seconds slower than the best team on the grid. That may sound like a lot, and in F1 it is, but in normal world it isn't. It's the difference between having regular tyres and sport tyres on your car. Additionally regulations are radically changed every so often. What works this season might not be allowed next season. You can have the best car on the grid, but the year after all of that could be nullified with new regulations. Mercedes is a great example. They were the dominant force for years, but started being a mid field team at best this past year. There's also cost. Building a competitive car is very expensive and you generally see that the best funded teams are at the front. And that can become a vicious cycle. Not having enough money to build a competitive car means you might not win as many points, which means you get less prize money and sponsors might not want to pay as much. That means you don't have money for the best engineers, strategists, drivers. So the year after you fall behind even more, resulting in less money again. etc.

It's not just the US or the UK. I grew up in a western European country and moved to Australia since. I used to vote very right when I was young. I was fresh out of school and optimistic about the future. I thought working hard, trying to make smart decisions etc would all lead to a future where I could at least have what my parents have. Along the way I smartened up. I tried outworking my peers to get ahead. Got promotions. Saved money, did the whole delayed gratification thing. I saw my salary double, then double again, then I met my SO and our household income doubled again. And along that journey realisation after realisation hit. Kids became a $20,000 per year, per kid "hobby". Just having health insurance is no longer sufficient. The promise of retirement at 65 went to "there may or may not be a bit of money for you when you're mid 70s". Saving up to buy ever more expensive property is made impossible for many as rental prices go up and renter protection laws are reduced, not to mention the fact that renters on average are hardest hit by increasing energy prices because they are stuck with poorly insulated homes while home owners get things like subsidised solar and other benefits. I also realised that many of my peers who I looked at as being more succesful were all up to their eyeballs in debt, financing everything from their toasters to their homes. So as much as I'd like to believe that our generation is voting more "social", I think our voting behaviour hasn't actually changed. The idea of voting right as you get wealthier is based on the idea that people vote for their own best interests. People still vote for their own best interests, it's just that fewer and fewer of us are able to, or believe we are able to join the group for whom the right wing parties are acually making decisions that are in their best interest. The gap is incredibly wide and getting wider every day, and everyone on the left side of the gap is increasingly realising that they're funding the other side with next to no chance of ever crossing over themselves. And why continue to vote for someone that isn't benefitting you.

It's a serious industry. I grew up in a touristy coastal town with lots of sand bars and every year several people would run aground and would need help. Most would be on rented boats and wouldn't know how the system worked, so when someone offered to help them, they would often just say yes thinking it was someone being friendly or they would say yes out of pure desperation, not knowing it was a salvage company that was going to charge them a percentage of the value of the boat (often thousands of Euros). As you can imagine with those types of payouts those salvage companies would get very scummy. It would be a full-on race who would get there first and plenty of companies would just hang out in the area during the summer months, waiting for someone to get into trouble. Obviously not warning them, just waiting until someone got stuck. Also, you're allowed to reject help, but in many cases they would just put on lines without asking, or even flat out ignoring you when you declined help. This was decades ago, before things like smartphone cameras recording everything, so it would mostly end up being your word against their one, and obviously they had experience on their side. ​ Locals and people more familiar with the area knew that our town had a really good volunteer service that would always come out, that not only would do a much cleaner job (you can do a fair bit of damage pulling a boat that's stuck), but they also wouldn't charge the standard percentage. Technically it was free, but it was an unwritten rule that you would donate a certain amount which would be a fraction of what you would pay to a salvage company.

Here's an article specifically talking about this boat I believe: []( The TL;DR is that no, you can't claim it as your own. If you salvage a vessel successfully you're required to contact the owner/insurance company and claim compensation. That compensation can be up to, but not more than 100% of the value of the vessel + cargo. The compensation depends on a bunch of things, like how difficult/risky the salvage was and several other things. In some cases owners/insurance companies just tell the salvaging party to keep the vessel as it's easier for everyone in involved. The writer believes that probably would've happened in this case as well (he believes the boat was originally worth around $600k and would've been worth about $200k when found).

I had noticed too that Marty and Moog had started to feel a little colder towards each other. There could be heaps of reasons. I've often suspected that Moog was better able to monetise their success for example. I'm basing that purely on the types of cars they build and how they approach those builds. There's also age. They started MCM when they were 30 and 33. They're 44 and 47 now. They have families, I believe at least Moog has kids. They have day jobs. I'm sure priorities have shifted a lot since they started. I feel they've tried a lot over the years to make the business that is MCM, rely on them less. Something I think almost every Youtuber at some point tries. They have the restaurant, the merch, the events, the magazine. 'Chopped!' is trademarked. They clearly stopped filming and editing themselves a long time ago. They brought in more and more experts on cars. Improved the shop to be more and more comfortable to work in. I can't blame them in the slighest. They've been doing this thing for 15 years.

So don't deposit your money immediately. If ever. There is no law that says you can't just keep your money in a safe at home and the receipts from the casino don't have an expiration date. Those recordings do though. Casinos also aren't just giving out footage without a court order and for a court order to be given, law enforcement would first have to show at least some sort of evidence of wrongdoing. And finally, as is mentioned in the video, this is making casinos money and they lobby incredibly hard and put in lots of effort to ensure this all can keep going on smoothly. Casually providing video evidence that shows they were looking the other way while illegal activity was going on right under their noses is not exactly something casinos in Australia have a habit of doing.

Commented by /u/time_to_reset in /r/videos on December 24, 2022 05:37:05

You get bills back with a receipt saying where you got the money from. That is money laundering. When you bring $10k into the casino, feed it into a machine and then cash out, your receipt doesn't say how much money you came into the casino with. It looks the same as the receipt of someone that 100% legally won $10k. So police, tax agencies, banks, nobody would be able to prove that you didn't actually win that $10k legally, meaning they can't touch it or you. The people in the video assumed people knew what money laundering is.

Commented by /u/time_to_reset in /r/videos on December 24, 2022 05:32:40

By having it go through the casino, it no longer came from an unknown source. It came from the casino. You get a receipt at the casino that shows you took out $10k but there's nothing that says what amount you started with, meaning it would be very difficult for a tax agency for example to prove you didn't earn the $10k legally. So the money is now "clean". You can deposit it in your bank account, pay for your car financing, pay off your mortage, etc. That's what money laundering is. The problem here however is that you can't really do this all that often. If you did it would start to look suspicious which would bring heaps of complications. Add to that that $10k isn't all that much money in Australia and yeah this is definitely a loophole that can be exploited, but not one used by the big fish. But if I find a brick of coke on the beach, yeah this will probably be a good option.

Same. I fell in love when they were just out of reach for someone at the start of their career. "But if I work hard, maybe one day..." But their values went up faster than my income. And now it's priced like a manual V10 R8, 997.2 Carrera S, Evora 410, and you're within spitting distance of cars like the 360 Modena. If I ever do make enough money I'm not sure I'd spend it on a 30 year old car anymore.

Because we've designed society as a pyramid scheme. We need new people to be born so they can pay for those that were born before them. The way to prepare for it personally is to structure your life with the assumption there will not be something like a retirement age and a pension anymore. Your retirement is when you determine you can afford not to work anymore.

Why not put a little bit of that time and dedication towards getting a bit more in shape. I'm not saying to get ripped, just a bit slimmer.

I think it's worth more clearly defining what interstellar travel is. I don't think we'll hop on a rocket and travel like we do to the moon today. For anything to move at the required speeds for that, plus what happens during impacts with literally anything at those speeds, I think it's highly improbably that that will happen. But there are so many advances that can still be made in robots, computers, medicine, that are almost trivial compared to solving the problems associated with traveling at even just a fraction of the speed of light. I consider it endlessly more likely that we'll establish a robot colony. Robots that are purpose built for the environment we send them too and capable to operate completely autonously. Maybe we'll send over human starter kits at some point when we know the destination is ready for it, but it feels equally likely we'll send or build robot surrogates on-site and transmit our minds/consciousness over which will be possible at speeds much closer to the speed of light. Robot surrogates also have many more advantages over the fleshy originals. I do find it unlikely the other planet will have much to do with Earth. It will most likely develop and evolve on it's own, with our influence not going much beyond having kickstarted it.

Because your position is negatively impacting others. Your position is actively creating a problem for someone else, but you pretty much say that that is a problem for someone else to solve even though you are responsible for creating the problem. Say my position is that people should not be allowed to have cars anymore. I don't have a car, so it's easy for me to have that opinion, it doesn't affect me. You might need your car, but that is not my problem to solve. The homeless example doesn't apply.

It was a joke, I thought I was being over the top enough but I guess not. A small number of modules for a console is very different than building a PC where you have to match power supplies, types of RAM etc. And a PC doesn't come with the Playstation ecosystem which we know from Apple and others is a very valuable asset to have.

The barebones version without any modules will cost the same as a disc version of the PS5 today does. The modules, that need to be registered to your PS5 after installation so they can't be resold later, will be: • A "performance" networking module - this module adds an ethernet port + 5GHz wifi support • A "performance" storage module - this isn't actually a physical module, it just allows you to use more of the built in drive • A disc module - Sony will however make sure that the disc module uses the same connector as another module that people really want and provide only one connection on the PS5 so that people will have to choose. During holiday seasons Sony will make the other module free for everyone that buys a PS5 and eventually you always get it for free with every PS5. Eventually Sony will stop offering it entirely saying nobody was using it anyways. • It won't support VR and 4K as standard, you'll have to get an upgraded fan module and pay a monthly subscription to the Playstation Performance tier. The fan module isn't actually an upgraded fan, it's just a panel with some extra holes in it, so people will try to make their own, but those won't work because, as mentioned before, you need to register all the modules. They'll sell bundle packs where you get a certain game with a module at reduced cost and they'll sell "Gamer packs" which bundle certain modules. Electronics stores will get training to really convince parents that a barebones PS5 is pretty much unplayable and giving your children only that is bordering on child abuse. To encourage the sale of modules, Sony will make sure there is very little margin on the PS5 itself, but lots on the modules.

I feel it's constant now. On the way into the supermarket there's first the homeless person, then there's the table with some sort of charity, the on the products there's some message about how they donate part of the price to some charity. Then during check-out you're asked if you want to round up to some number for yet again a charity. And on your way out you walk past one of those dogs, one of those coin rolling bucket things and an empty shopping trolley for donations to the food bank. Fuck. Off. And that's just in the supermarket. There's the door knockers and those ambushing cunts at the shopping centres (many of which work on commission fyi, and a significant commission at that) that nowadays are peddling not one-off donations, but subscriptions. "Just $5 per month" as if it's some sort of value deal. Maccas got in on the action too not too long ago. There must be some sort of financial benefit for these companies like Coles, Woolies and Maccas. They don't actuallg care. They care about money. If it looks good in terms of PR that's just a nice to have. I think it's that they're able to claim certain expenses on tax, but I'm sure there's additional benefits somewhere. It's not that I don't care about helping eachother out, I volunteer several hours per week and will give to things I care about and have researched. What I don't need is getting ambushed all the time with things someone else has decided I should care about. So many of these charities are borderline scams with high management and marketing fees etc. But even the fact that I happen to volunteer or donate shouldn't even matter. It is your choice what you do with your time and money. Homelessness, people not having enough money to survive or being able to get proper medical attention, etc. Those issues shouldn't need to be solved by you and me. They are signs of an inadequate government that's apparently unable to provide in the most basic of needs for people. Bleg. The whole system is so corrupt.

TL;DR: It all gets sold and if you owned anything on FTX, you will most likely get nothing. ​ If you had LUNC at FTX, you didn't own any actual LUNC. What you had was a line in the FTX books saying they owed you a certain amount of LUNC with a certain value. Similarly, FTX also had a line in their books showing that they owed salary worth x amount of dollars to their employees and loans worth x amount of dollars to banks. But FTX doesn't have enough money to pay everybody what they are owed and don't know how to fix it anymore. That is called being insolvent. If you declare insolvency there are a couple paths forward. Usually either someone else comes in and they try to restructure the company in a way that would allow it to pay off debts and move forward, often by selling of parts of the company or finding new investment etc. And another path is liquidation, in which case a list is made of everything the company owns and that is then sold off with the aim to cover as much of the debt as possible, but seizes to exist. That includes the debt FTX owes to you as a LUNC holder. ​ So most likely all the LUNC FTX owns will be sold off and the money from that will be used to pay off creditors. Of which you are one if you had LUNC in FTX. You will most likely however need to register as a creditor and most of the time things like salaries, tax and large creditors like banks, investment firms and others get paid first. And what's left, if any, goes to individuals like yourself. But most likely you will get nothing.

That also doesn't make a lot of sense. Your buying power is really small if you keep only your staking rewards liquid, and you're still really exposed as the bulk of your assets are still locked up.

I don't really understand the strategy. You're considering diversifying your portfolio. The reason why you would do that is to spread your risk. That idea is solid. Where it falls over is how you're spreading what you have. You're keeping most of your assets in the riskiest currencies. To put that into numbers: a 20% drop in price of LUNC, which is very common, means you wipe close to $500 of your current net worth (at today's prices). Bitcoin on the other hand is far less likely to lose 20% all of a sudden, but you plan on only putting your staking rewards into that, which you say is about 10,000 per day. That's $1.80 per day or $650 per year. An unlikely 20% drop in that case would cost you only about $130. Basically, by diversifying you normally trade safety for upside, but with your planned strategy you're still very exposed. You're doing the opposite. You're betting big that LUNC is going to take off, because you've put a lot of your money in it, but you're limiting your potential upside by taking your staking rewards out. Again, in numbers: You're taking 10,000 LUNC per day out. That's $1.80 today, but if some people are to be believed, it could be $1,000+ one day. BTC however, even with the most generous of price predictions, that $1.80 could turn into maybe $10 some day? So not financial advice, but something to consider. The normal approach would be to buy heaps of LUNC, keep it until it pumps and then put it into less volatile currencies to ensure you don't lose it all. Like converting it to dollars or BTC.

Take photos of everything. Detailed photos. For reference, I have a good landlord and a good rental agent. Our property is in good shape, and they provided a little over 200 photos on the inspection report. I still provided another 80 or so additional photos of everything that I felt was not properly documented. Photos are super cheap to make with your phone. Just make as many as you like. And make them quickly. If you don't provide them to the landlord or rental agent within a certain period of time after moving in, you are considered as having accepted the property as is. You don't have to be a dick about it. I provided the 80+ additional photos simply saying I want it documented so I'm not on the hook for certain things at the end of my lease.

LUNC is built on a proof-of-stake consensus mechanism. In proof of stake, so called validators validate transactions (hence the name). The transaction fee you pay when making a transaction goes towards the validator for doing the work. To be a validator you have to put up tokens as collateral which you will lose if you approve a fraudulent transaction. This is called 'slashing' Your tokens are at stake (hence then name). The more tokens a validator has, the more transactions they will be asked to validate, so when you give your tokens to a validator, they will get more transactions to validate and they share their rewards from that work with you. Often taking a small commission. It's a fairly straightforward system, but you do need to be aware that technically, when you give your tokens to a validator, you trust that they will not try to do anything malicious, because if they do, you will lose your tokens. Hopefully this also explains the importance of commissions and uptime. Commissions are important because they are what a validator gets paid. If they take zero commission, that means they pass on 100% of their rewards to you. They get paid nothing for their work. Why would they do that? Do you trust a certain validator enough to not do something that might risk you losing your tokens? This risk is small, but not zero. Similarly, uptime is important, because if your validator is down a lot they can also be penalised.

Many are talking about the price of components and manufacturing, but I get the feeling OP is more asking why manufacturers believe they can now charge as much as a laptop for a phone. The really short answer is "because they can". The longer ELI5 version is this: Say I am selling marbles at $1 each. At $1 for each marble, when I sell 100 of them, I will have made $100, right? Now say I double my prices. Say to $2. How many potential customers would I lose? Let's say I lose 30 customers of the 100. I hope that all makes sense. The higher the price, generally the fewer people that are willing to pay that price. &#x200B; Now those marbles aren't free to me. I have to make them. Say every marble costs me $0.50 to make. If I sell 100 marbles at $1 each and they cost me $0.50 each to make, my profit would be $50. But if I sell 70 marbles at $2.00 each and they still only cost me $0.50 each to make, my profit would be $105. Meaning I will have actually made $5 more while doing less work. &#x200B; This is important for big companies to figure out. Especially in markets like mobile phones as almost everybody already has a phone (it's what they call a "saturated market". So selling high volumes is difficult. Ideally you sell as few units as possible, but you do need to charge a lot to hit your profit number. And to get people to replace their old device and to feel like you can justify the price, you need to have a compelling offer, which likely means adding the latest and greatest (and most expensive) tech to your devices. And with all of those things combined you can see how prices start to creep up. Much of it driven by the need to hit ever higher profit numbers. With private companies you often see this price creep a lot less.

I think we have a pretty good idea of what the consequences would've been if we hadn't done lockdowns. "Protecting the most vulnerable" basically means separating them entirely from society. Like prisoners. And we also know that it's not just the most vulnerable that were at risk. Plenty of otherwise fairly healthy people have died from COVID. So most here feel that lockdowns were the right, or at the very least an acceptable response. We didn't enjoy them, but we understand why they were imposed.

Sure, that's fair. But that creates an interesting topic for discussion, which is, does it have to be a government backed currency? What added value does government backing provide? A dollar is only worth say 1 bread and roughly 1 Euro is because we're made to believe so thanks to careful manipulation of the market by the government and the banking system. It works to a degree, but things like hyper inflation aren't uncommon. I'm not saying Bitcoin is the solution, all I'm trying to say is that there's something in the concept of it. Especially with international trade becoming more and more common.

Commented by /u/time_to_reset in /r/news on November 26, 2022 18:01:01

Yup, so you're putting all your faith in the US government and its banking system. That's ok, I understand why that gives you a high level of confidence. Although, Russians who had their bank accounts seized might feel differently. Sure, you might feel the US government was justified in taking their money, but it does show that your money is only yours because the government allows you to have it. What if they change their mind in the future? All that is needed to take everything you have is to convince a judge that your assets should be seized or frozen. Far fetched? Maybe, but there's been plenty of people that have been in prison for decades, even people that have been executed, where it turned out later that they were actually innocent. You might also enjoy reading about civil forfeiture. Are you still that confident that your money is completely safe in the bank? Maybe you are, but there's lots more countries and currencies in the world than the US and the US dollar. Do you think people in Afghanistan felt that confident that their money was safe in the bank when the Taliban took over? Bitcoin doesn't have insurance because it doesn't need it. There is no government and no banks. As long as people use Bitcoin, the Bitcoin blockchain exists, and Bitcoins can be traded. Nobody can come in and say "well, this is mine now".

I am. Bitcoin can't go banktrupt because it's not a company. As long as there's support for the network, it exists. Whereas banks go banktrupt all the time. The fraud and scams aren't because of Bitcoin, Bitcoin is just a currency, just like how the dollar isn't the cause of a scam or fraud. If a bank commits fraud the problem isn't with the dollar, it's with the bank.

You are literally proving my point. The FDIC is insurance. It exists because banktruptcies and fraud happen all the time and if there was no insurance nobody would use banks. Bitcoin solves having to rely on banks, governments, and when shit hits the fan, on an insurance policy (that is managed by government and companies ánd apparently capped at only $250k). You're saying a fireproof bunker has no value because there's a fire brigade and fire insurance.

Bitcoin itself hasn't changed. The landscape has. These exchanges are acting like banks and lots of people fall for it. The actual idea of a decentralised ledger that doesn't rely on companies (banks) and governments, is still valid.

Commented by /u/time_to_reset in /r/news on November 26, 2022 07:59:12

I agree that crypto in general has become a breeding ground for scammer, but the basic idea of at least some crypto currencies like Bitcoin does make sense. A $100 dollar bill is only worth $100 dollars because we all agreed it would, not because it's $100 dollars worth of cloth and ink. If we give that $100 to a company (a bank) to hold it for us, we are left with a promise that if we ask for it back, or if we ask it to give that $100 on our behalf, they will. Basically you have exchanged your $100 for 1 promise. An IOU. But what if that company goes banktrupt? What if the company is dodgy? What if they lose their records on you? What if the government forces the company to give it your $100? In all those cases your IOU is worth $0. That is what Bitcoin solves. Instead of having to rely on a bank or a government, there is a decentralised, but fully transparent network that keeps track of what you and everybody else owns. The additional benefit is that to ensure banks generally are good for their IOUs is heaps of regulation and expensive systems. Something you pay for as a customer. You also pay for CEO bonusses and fancy office buildings. With Bitcoin much of that doesn't and doesn't have to exist. Now all these shit shows you're hearing about, like this FTX debacle is because FTC, Binance, and many others are pretending to be banks. They are the exact thing Bitcoin tried to solve for and in effect serve kind of as the perfect example for why crypto has a reason for being. I don't own Bitcoin, but there's no denying there is something in it. Banks weren't all as reliable as they are now. They were once not too dissimilar to where crypto is now.

I've feel we've been conditioned to be disappointed at worst and indifferent at best. Maybe it's because I'm not a massive gamer, but what normally triggers me for a new console is the news of some cool new game that's about to come out. You get excited by the news about a game like that and you'd get the console to maximise the experience. The PS5 the games that came out at launch we got didn't feel radically different and besides, if we liked the game we were most likely going to be playing it on PS4 anyways as you couldn't get a PS5. Then for the next several years straight, all the content we saw about the PS5 was about scalpers, shortages, inventories being sold out, delays and if there was ever a mention of a cool new game coming out, it was always closely followed by something like "but you can't play it because you can't get a PS5". I understand this thing has been a bit of an echo chamber. I understand that if I really wanted a PS5 I could get on a waitlist somewhere and wait a few weeks and get one. But I just don't care that much anymore. I would probably pick up a PS5 if there was an exciting game coming out and if I could get one without much friction, but if I'm forced to take time and think about the purchase, I'll come to the conclusion that I have work, friends, an SO and several other hobbies and that $700 or whatever it costs is a lot of money for a device I won't use all that much. Basically if the new GTA dropped tomorrow and I could get a PS5 at the same time, sure I'd get one. If GTA dropped and I'd have to be on a waitlist for a month to get one, nah I'll wait and pick something up second hand in a year or so.

Max is fair in that he would've been okay with Perez defending the postion. I don't think we'll ever hear a radio call where Max will ask a driver to just give up a position which I can respect. My problem with the whole situation is that Max is smart enough to know that Perez and Red Bull are trying to get a Red Bull 1-2 this year and that Perez need all the points he can get. Yet Max still decided that for some reason, him getting the extra points was more important, despite already being WDC, despite already having a record number of points this season and despite not fighting for a podium. And by doing so he basically gave the finger to the rest of the team including his team mate who has sacrificed way more more to help Max secure WDC last year and this. You shouldn't have to be told to be a decent person, but even when he was told, he still deliberately chose not to be one.

In my experience it depends on how you present yourself. If you present yourself as being an immigrant, referencing to your original country as "home", making it clear you aren't here to stay etc, you will be seen as someone that's passing through. It puts an expiration date on your relationship and people don't want to invest in a temporary relationship. Other immigrants that are like that don't realise that or don't care because they're the same. They are also more likely to be friendly because they are similarly new and in search of friends. But locals will already have a network and friends. They don't need you. This is my experience as an immigrant that found making good friends here heaps easier than where I'm from originally.

My SO has piercings, tattoos and often coloured hair. I'm Mr vanilla. We've been together for over a decade and in that time I've not been searched even once but she has had more "random" searches than I can remember. We travel together, it's clear we are together, but nope, the random search is always her. We see them walk up to us and we will already joke about it. Even to the person doing the search. We've also flat out asked them about it, but they will always deny it's not actually random. And this is just the experience of a random white girl with some piercings and tattoos. I can only imagine how absolutely shit it must be for others.

I'd argue the technical side of crypto is the least relevant side of it. I understand the technical side of it, but for many cryptos I don't understand their business case and in my experience very few "investors" actually have even given that any thought. They are all just pouring in money because line goes up. I believe in the promise of crypto and I think things like the FTX crash are actually good. They expose massive flaws in the current system and are learning opportunities for the industry as a whole.

1. Typo - will not be accepted by the chain. The chain is record of which wallet contains what. The chain wouldn't have any data on a non-existent wallet, so it would not allow you to send anything to it. 2. If you send it to the wrong wallet, you have no options. Except for a few exceptions, all wallets are anonymous. If you were to send something to my wallet address, you wouldn't know it's mine, but similarly, as a recipient I also wouldn't have no way to know who sent something to me. There also is no "undo" function. &#x200B; It's often recommended that when transferring large amounts to first send a very small amount to verify the address. As mentioned, accounts are anonymous by nature. There's not a phone book with names and addresses. You can however check all wallet addresses using []( Simply type in the address you're considering sending something to and you'll at least be able to verify it's real. You can also check funds and transactions to verify it's the account you're expecting to send funds to. Finally and depending on what you're doing, you can do what traditional financial institutions do. They will send you a small amount between $0.01 and $0.99 for example and will ask you to confirm to them the amount they sent you as a way to verify your account.

When they did the airdrop part of it was vested, meaning part of it you would only get after a certain period of time. It was about 60% of your total airdrop. Because of how exchanges like FTX and Binance work, the airdrop went to them and they distribute the coins among their members. Only FTX knows which of its members get what and is able to distribute the Luna V2 when it becomes available, so if FTX ceases to exist before the Luna V2 vesting period is over, there won't be a ledger showing who should get what and there's nobody to distribute the funds. Alternatively, if FTX goes bankrupt and there are debts to be paid, the funds might go to other claimants.

I've done motorcycle reviews and it can be challenging to find something unique to say sometimes. Sometimes the product is just average on all fronts. Not bad, not good, just average, but you still have to write something. So I can forgive some cliches and repeditiveness, especially with the volume of content journalists are expected to put out nowadays. What I have more of an issue with is how pricing is handled. With sentences like "the interior could be x" or "feature x really is missing", we are continuously pushing manufacturers to make cars bigger and more expensive, but more importantly consumers are pushed into bigger and more expensive vehicles they really don't need. Say a Golf is small often enough and people will genuinely believe they need a Suburban to drive their single child to school.

If you always stick with the easy stuff, you never grow. Nobody is saying it'll be easier to colonise another planet. It'll take money, energy and most likely people will lose their lives, but one day we might not have to rely on our pale blue dot for literally everything and anything anymore.

Currently all our eggs are in the Earth basket. A meteoroid strike, a super eruption, a nuclear war. There are lots of things that have the potential to wipe out, or significantly set back humanity here on Earth. Like a really basic thing could be that we keep a library on another planet so that when disaster strikes here, that knowledge isn't lost. Similarly a seed bank like the one in Norway.

I share that thought, but for a different reason. A wave pool makes the sport accessible to way more people and allows for way more practice to be crammed into a way smaller timeframe. Almost everyone that is at the top of their game started very young, but you have to find time between school and other things kids do. You have to be able to get to a beach and you have to be lucky enough that you get some decent waves. A wave pool is much more like bringing your kids to swim class. The pools are often closer to urban areas. Someone could easily drop their kids off and know they'll be looked after for a couple of hours + there's often coaching available. Basically way more people will be able to get the practice and coaching to unlock their talents and learning all of that at a young age, you have a massive advantage in the ocean later on.

I play a silly sport called underwater rugby in which I learned it's all about relaxing and staying calm. Don't try to fight the water, try not to panic. Just wait it out. It's not actually the lack of air that makes you feel that urge to breathe, it's the CO2 build up in your lungs. By practicing breath holding you can practice getting used to that feeling, but better to not create extra CO2 to begin with by putting energy into fighting the water or stressing out. Once you're in the thick of it there's nothing you can do anyways, so it's literally wasted energy.

It feels very much like they're talking down to you and as if they don't actually care about you at all, it's just that their legal team is making them do this. The email itself is also is very different in tone than the subject line. That said, I don't think it's a bad thing if you received an email that said something about maybe drinking a bit much. Like it or not, Australia has a bit of a problem with alcohol. Almost 1400 people per year die directly from alcohol use and another 3000 or so deaths are alcohol related and that's just deaths alone. There's a pretty big social impact too. I'm not saying you can't have a drink, but I feel the idea of informing someone that they might be drinking a bit more than is healthy isn't the worst thing. Had this been written in a more constructive way, it might've actually made a difference. Now I feel this just triggers a "I'll show you alcohol abuse" response.

Commented by /u/time_to_reset in /r/melbourne on October 26, 2022 18:27:20

I was raised as being allowed to play and have fun, but to be mindful of others which meant no screaming, no running around where people walked and if we played on our Gameboy to have headphones in or the volume off. I'm not expecting kids to not exist and I think/hope most of the people here don't expect that, but like you said, there appears to be a pretty big group of parents that don't even try to teach their kids to be mindful of others. Maybe it's that those kids are more visible now or maybe I've just gotten more sensitive about it. I definitely see heaps of respectful kids which is why I'm not trying to paint every parent with the same brush, but there are some unadjusted kids out there being raised by parents who really couldn't care less.

Your reply is kind of the perfect example of my point. Because you're right, if I give you a job to do, we agree on a deadline and you then don't make that deadline, that is indeed my problem. And my solution to that problem is to replace you by someone that does make sure deadlines get met. Because I consider making deadlines to be part of your job and coming up with solutions to problems part of mine. Also the idea that there are zero benefits for you to doing anything more than what you're being paid for is shortsighted. You get paid for the value you generate. If that value stays exactly the same throughout your employment, why would I ever consider giving you a raise or any form of promotion? To use your own words I don't get *any* benefits from that If however you show that you are able and willing to step up and do more than your job description and thus generate more value than I expected, than it's only fair that you get paid accordingly. &#x200B; Your idea of what someone overseas is like is also just wrong. Maybe that's your own experience with overseas people, but there is a very big world with a lot of very talented people out there that are understand that concept of generating value and treat their job accordingly.

That's a fair question and I should've worded my reply differently. I don't expect more than 40 hours. What I meant was that some people don't take ownership of the work that they're given. Some people come in, sit at a desk for 40 hours, get up and go home. Regardless of if the deadline is met or not, if the work they deliver is any good and with no desire to skill up at all. That's fine, but if I can choose between two people with identical skillsets for identical salaries, but one of the two does care about the work and about doing well, I would choose the latter. And it just happens to be that that person is often not based locally. To be clear, it works both ways. If you show you take ownership of your work and you want to do well, I'm not going to micromanage you or give you shit about time. If you're not a morning person, feel free to start late. If you prefer working evenings because you want to spend afternoons with your kids, do your thing. If you can get a job that we allocated 20 hours for done in 18, I believe you earned those 2 hours to fill in how you like.

I wonder if we secretly work together. It's like you said, I can pay someone here a normal salary and you get someone that will code for 40 hours a week and that's about it. Or I can pay the exact same amount to someone overseas who will be way more motivated and will care way more about the work. I don't mean that as a way to take advantage of anyone, but especially now that WFH is becoming more and more the standard, there aren't really that many benefits anymore to hiring someone local.

I can't find the answer, but for many low volume cars it's because the cost of getting a car certified for use in the US is simply not worth it.

A 2018 Kia Soul with that many kilometers goes for about $14,000 in Canada. There's few people that will spend about half the value of their car to get an engine replaced in an economy car. The whole second hand engine thing is irrelevant. We're comparing it to a new battery in an EV.

Yeah, A Touch Of Dutch in Berwick used to have a really good cafe we would occassionally go to. They had everything and it was really good, but they had to close it due to COVID. The Lekker Lekker food truck is alright, the main benefit of it is that it is in different places around the city every weekend. You can find them on We go sometimes for fun. I'd probably just buy a little fryer and order some online. I'm nor sure if they ship them or if you have to pick them up though.

It heavily depends on where you live. St. Kilda? Hell no, I feel unsafe there driving around with my car windows open sometimes. But there are plenty of suburbs where it's really not a problem. That said, my SO always says "fresh air is for dead people" when I suggest keeping our 1st floor bedroom window slightly open which is in reference to the many murderers that considered an open window "an invitation". Personally I think you'll be alright and the risk of something happening is small. It's more that it'll probably be an impactful experience if something does happen and I'm not sure if that's worth it to you. A small fan might do 90% of what you're looking for at 0 zero risk.

BTC is a very different story. BTC is the posterchild of crypto, it's the name everyone and their mum knows, so it has way more people interested in it. There's lots of rags to riches stories about it, etc. Mindshare is an incredibly valuable attribute for something like crypto for which the price is heavily influenced by hype. BTC is also properly trusted. There's no massive crash and drama in its history. Or if you simply want to look at numbers, BTC has a max supply that is 1/328,500th of LUNC. What that means is that when BTC was at its peak, 1 BTC was worth $63,558. With the total supply of 21m that gives a market cap of $137.7b. If LUNC goes to $1, it'll have a market cap of $6.9 trillion. 50 times more than BTC has ever been worth. It would make LUNC about 2.5x as valuable as the most valuable company in the world (Apple). It's about as much as the GDP of Japan and France combined. Or half the GDP of China. It is a big fucking number. I'm in for the long haul, but hitting $1 really is an against all odds kind of thing and you should plan accordingly.

It's the same thing though. The median house price for a Truganina is $651,000. That gets you something like a 4 bedroom, 2 bathroom detached house with a garage and a garden. It might not be a big garden and it might not be big rooms, but it's a garden and it's 4 rooms. Spending the same amount in one of the inner city suburbs and you're looking at maybe a 2 bedroom townhouse or apartment.

Developers are 100% a big part of it, but I also think there's an actual demand for these types of homes. I personally like walkable neighbourhoods, full of trees and older homes that are busy with people. I like being able to have cafes, restaurants and small local shops nearby and being a small bicycle ride away from the CBD etc. And Melbourne is a great city in that you can have all of that, but unless you're willing/able to spend a lot of money, you generally will have to sacrifice on some things. I could have a much larger, more quiet and more private house with a big garden if I were willing to sacrifice proximity to the CBD for example. But I'm not. But if you have three kids who you all want to have their own bedroom and you want a quiet neighbourhood with a garden, where I live that gets expensive really quick, but in one of these estates you're able to get all of that for relatively little money. I have a mate that lives in Sunbury in one of those new developments. What I consider a 5 bedroom, three bathroom mansion on a hill with a beautiful view and yard so big his 12 by 5 meter pool looks small in it. All for about the average price of an old 2 bedroom home in my neighbourhood.

I'm from the Netherlands, a wealthy western European country. Lived inner city Amsterdam for 12 years where my SO and I had excellent careers. Gave it all up to move to Melbourne and we consider it amongst our best ever decisions. That's not to say things are perfect here. Our healthcare system is getting pretty bad, there's lots of racism, our property market is broken, but overall work-life balance here is way better, people are much more open and inviting, there's great cafes and restaurants everywhere. What you're describing feels like coming in and identifying as an expat and choosing the wrong place(s) to live. There's lots of suburbia and there's expensive CBDs, but between those extremes there are great suburbs that feel like small towns within the city, with their own culture, where people know each other, where there's fun local cafes, restaurants, shops and parks everywhere, good public transport etc. You can find the exact place that suits you. And in terms of relationships, the cold hard truth is that if we find out that you don't intend on staying here, we kind of write you off. It's a waste of time investing in a friendship with someone that's just passing through. I saw it happen when we first moved here and we do it ourselves now. If you don't intend on staying, you will always be treated as an outsider and your only real friendships will be with other people that are passing through. I love it here, making friends is easy, life is much more outdoors, there's amazing nature on your doorstep, work-life balance is much better, etc. I feel more at home here than I ever have in the Netherlands and dare I say I identify as an Australian, not as a Dutch person.

It's not a thing with strangers and luckily it doesn't really have to be. The government and SES generally do a pretty good job providing emergency accomodation. Especially as the current situation was not exactly unexpected a fair bit of preparation was already done. That said, if you know someone that could use some help, it is a thing to offer them some help. Could be anything though, offer to help them move things for example or cleaning up later. Nobody will expect you to offer them to stay at your house unless you're fairly close.

People are conditioned to not see homeless people as actual people. There's always some reason how they justify not having to treat a homeless person with even basic respect. You see it in the comments here "they're all meth addicts and sex criminals", but even the sort of socially accepted "they have mental health issues" you hear everywhere. It's easier to believe someone is homeless because they somehow kind of deserve it than to acknowledge some people just got dealt a bad hand. Makes it okay to ignore "them". I'm not trying to be holier than thou here. I used to think it was all mentally unstable drug addicts too.

I'm not saying you're doing anything wrong parking it outside haha. Just saying it will make a difference. Whether or not that difference is worth the cost/effort of parking in a garage is not for me to say. My SO thinks often finds my need to park inside annoying. I have friends that think I'm wasting space using my garage for my car. Neither of them are wrong and neither are you for parking outside. All I'm saying is that the exact same car, with the exact some usage, one parked inside overnight and one that is not, there will be a noticeable difference like 5 years down the line. I'd say, because you have such a new and enthusiast vehicle, you could probably get a premium having a "garage parked" vehicle, but at the same time the difference might very well be negligible.

I live in Australia where it's very popular to knock down a detached single family home and put like 6 townhouses on the same lot. Having seen heaps of these while looking for a place, you very quickly become able to spot the houses that were built purely to look good on paper. Like you said, ensuites that are glorified broom closets where you can't open the shower door all the way without hitting the toilet. Or claiming a 3rd bedroom which in reality is more like some awkward leftover space they didn't know what to do with. Claiming a garage which couldn't any modern car etc. None existent insulation etc. As a society we are building so much junk at the moment, but I guess it works. Our place now is a bit older, but really nice and liveable. On paper it's only average though so there wasn't that much interest, whereas those newer nice-on-paper homes had lines out the door.

I wouldn't say a garage is absolutely necessary, but keeping it outside absolutely does a number on your car. Things like rubbers, leather seats, dashboards etc that dry out, paint that fades, crap in your vents, batteries that die much sooner due to temperature fluctuations. And that's just if you live in a nice climate. Snow, rain, road salt etc is even worse. It's all slow deterioration though, so you don't really notice it but there was a time I was anal about this kind of stuff and when I got my first garage I was blown away by how much nicer your car stays when kept inside. Even if you only park it outside during a workday, that's only maybe 10 hours out of a 24 hour day. It makes a noticeable difference. I don't judge you at all for street parking, but having experienced a garage I just can't do without one anymore.

I see a lot of responses about being understaffed etc. While that may be true as well, I worked at McDonalds when they went through the big "I'm loving it rebrand". As part of that announcement all McDonalds employees were invited to some big event where we got some shows from artists I can't remember, but also some corporate talks. During one of those talked about how they want to provide customers with better quality products and create less food waste. To do that we would start offering more variations and we would start making food as it was ordered. Not food that had been lying in that heater behind the counter for 20 minutes, making your food all soggy. The exception was high volume items during peak periods. Nowadays there's hardly anything in there, but when I started working there, we would make 10 hamburgers for example and just let them sit there in the heater. If they weren't sold after like 20 minutes we would throw them all out and make new ones. There was a whole system with clocks and tags to keep track of it. That doesn't exist anymore. So yeah, that's my experience.

I don't really know how to put a number on it. It's 100% manual for anything that has some sort of sporty intentions, but as someone that loves wagons it's made incredibly difficult. Where I live modern manual wagons pretty much don't exist. I know you think I'm exaggeraring, but really, your only option from the laat 5 years is a Mini Clubman. Go back up to 10 years and your only non-FWD manual wagon option is a Holden. Objectively a pretty amazing car, but you'd have to be Australian to understand why it might not be that appealing. So if I want a manual I have to import something or I have to attempt a manual swap. I consider my loyalty being tested, especially with hybrids and EVs which I find silly to want a manual in. So I am questioning my faith sometimes. Maybe I should stop going for a wagon and get something that isn't that fun to drive and doesn't have a manual, and get a manual MX5 or something on the side. For now I'll keep my 18 year old Subaru alive, while I mull over my options.

Yup, exactly this. We used it as a bargaining chip to get our new place, saying we would move in immediately. I guess the good thing is I now have two months to move and clean. &#x200B; I'd argue it's worse for properties for sale. In certain areas people are effectively forced to waive building and pest inspections because another bidder can just say they'll take it as is. With a rental at least you can move again fairly cheaply.

Same here. Paying two rents for two months because while the property manager was really friendly about it, it was made clear to us that if we didn't want to move in at a certain time, the landlord would choose someone else that would. And I can't blame them to be really honest. If you have a list of applicants that all seem nice enough, why would you not. It's a waste of money for sure, I think we're out something like $4,500 as a result. That's a lot of money, but we really liked the place.

I work with [The Big Umbrella]( which is a charity that gives out food and clothes.

There's plenty of reasons why someone can end up being homeless and the "just work harder" mentality many have is doing nobody any favours. I'm not saying you have to start volunteering and donating etc, but just being respectful and treating everyone with a bit of dignity goes a long fucking way.

Commented by /u/time_to_reset in /r/LunaClassic on October 4, 2022 00:13:33

I think a problem comes from the assumption that people will want LUNC in the future. The word scarcity implies demand, there is no guarantee that will exist after the current hype dies off. We could all be sitting on multi million dollar bags in a few years that nobody will want.

Commented by /u/time_to_reset in /r/LunaClassic on October 3, 2022 08:38:44

Burning will drop the supply. That's what burning is. If the price stays the same, the MC will go down. Say you have 100 pieces of paper. Each with a price of $1 dollar. The "market cap" of that stack of papers is 100 x $1 = $100. If you burn 1 piece of paper but the price stays the same, you now have 99 x $1 and a market cap of $99. Or the market cap might stay at $100 which would mean each individual piece of paper has gone up in value by 1%. (100 / 99 = $1.01). So yeah, market cap and price are variables, but supply is the only thing that's guaranteed to go down.

Binance holds a large amount of LUNC and they let people trade with that on their platform. That's why those are called off-chain transactions. Binance will send a certain number from their wallet to the burn address to burn.

Where does your market cap number come from or is it just an arbitrary number you chose? Pre-crash supply was capped at 1b. The burn mechanism has the cap set at 10b (the tax will disappear when 10b is reached). Most simply use the 10b number so we're calculating with the target supply, but you're not wrong that prices could very well go up well before that number is reached. The important thing to remember though is that even 1.5t still requires 5.4t needs to be burned. At the current rate of 300m per day that would still take 49 years. Even if Binance is able to bring up the number to say 2b per day it would take well over 7 years. And that's assuming burn rates stay equally high throughout that entire time, which is pretty impossible for various reasons.

Commented by /u/time_to_reset in /r/LunaClassic on October 2, 2022 19:40:55

I have yet to see a fundamental change that actually gives LUNC value, but it has several positives going for it: * Proven infrastructure. We had the crash which caused the hyperinflation but the coin itself and the tech behind it has been proven reliable. * User friendliness. Things work well, there's lots of good documentation, things like Station look polished, it's not that intimidating to use which would help with adoption by newcomers. * Mind-share. Lots of people have heard of LUNC, there's a large community etc. * Support. Not just from the community, but there's also developers that seem to be working on creating actual value. &#x200B; So long term things could definitely go up, but at the same time there's too many people thinking very short term because of the burning and Binance. That is currently simply going too slow to have the impact many think it will. It's a good first step, but so much more has to happen before things actually will improve. But with all the volatility, it's a good time to have some fun. For example, with Binance announcing numbers tomorrow you can see people are all excited. I think realistically however that after the announcement the prices are going to dip. All the movement does create opportunity to make some money.

Commented by /u/time_to_reset in /r/LunaClassic on October 2, 2022 19:26:40

11 days. That would be 0.6363b per day. The target is to burn down to 10b (which is pretty much impossible imo). Currently we're at 6,900b, so we'd have to burn 6,890b. 6890/0.6363 = 10,828 days or just under 30 years if we purely rely on Binance and they can keep the average burn rate the same (which again is pretty much impossible imo)

Commented by /u/time_to_reset in /r/LunaClassic on October 2, 2022 19:12:37

Binanace takes a fee on both the buy and the sell, so my estimates are a little higher. I'm thinking around 20b.

Commented by /u/time_to_reset in /r/LunaClassic on October 2, 2022 19:05:22

It'll be numbers for 12 days. They said they would start counting from the 21st.

Commented by /u/time_to_reset in /r/LunaClassic on October 2, 2022 19:03:10

I think we're currently seeing a beautiful example of buy the rumour, sell the news at the moment. Price is going up in anticipation, might even spike a little as numbers come out, then will fall way down when people come to the realisation that 20b or so in 12 days is pretty much a drop in the ocean. If I were a betting man (and not staked) I'd sell just after the announcement and buy back in when it's all down.

Commented by /u/time_to_reset in /r/LunaClassic on October 2, 2022 17:46:32

Absolutely impossible to say. Market cap today is $2.1b. Divided by 10b if that's all that left would say $0.21, but interested would have to be sky high by that time to maintain a sustained 1.5b burn per day. If Binance keeps this system of 0.1% burn on all trades, assuming they take that fee on both sides of the trade (0.1% from the buy, 0.1% from the sell), you're looking at 750 billion LUNC in trading volume per day to maintain that burn rate. That's just not very likely. It is now because 1 LUNC isn't worth much, so volumes are high. When prices go up significantly, even if a lot of money is changing hands, the LUNC volumes being traded will go down heaps. I wrote a post about all of this before.

Commented by /u/time_to_reset in /r/LunaClassic on October 2, 2022 17:28:49

Haha you and me both. I think it'll be around 20b assuming Binance does indeed take a fee on both sides of a trade.

Commented by /u/time_to_reset in /r/LunaClassic on October 2, 2022 17:12:56

Commented by /u/time_to_reset in /r/LunaClassic on October 2, 2022 08:15:02

I have to imagine it'll be a reasonable dump although we might see a spike for a small moment as numbers are released. Everybody is talking about how this is going to be big, but I just fail to see how that can be the case. Like the numbers are right there. Trading volumes have been something like $1.2b per day on average? About 4 trillion LUNC. Binance accounts for only a portion of that, but let's say every single transaction went through Binance anyways. Binance charges a 0.1% fee which is all they said they would burn, which would be charged to both the seller and the buyer so 0.2% per transaction. 1/1000th of 4 trillion is 4 billion per day, so assuming every trade is made on Binance and all buyers and sellers pay the full 0.1%, that's 8 billion per day. I would personally be pleasantly surprised if on Tuesday, after 12 days, Binance burns more than 40b. But there's just no telling what people will do. It seems many don't realise how little 40b or 2.3b per day actually is.

It's not really that black and white I think. Putting your money into a house now gives you the ability to spend your money more freely when you're retired and the house is mostly paid off. As a renter you might have a bit more money to spend now, but you'll have to budget for having to still spend money on rent by the time the home owner doesn't anymore. That's definitely something that's keeping me from throwing away heaps of money on cars despite renting.

He can simply pick a scam, get the script for that scam and get roughly the right responses for every step of the script * Easy scam victims are elderly people that aren't tech savvy and ideally aren't fully there anymore. So where you might question delays and weird responses in a normal conversation, scammers might be more likely to see it as a good potential victim * You can tell it doesn't understand or properly reply to almost everything that's being asked, there's just a whole bunch of random lines to default to.

Sure I'm angry at Optus, but I'm infinitely more angry with a government that has done absolutely nothing to limit/regulate the excessive data hoarding by basically everyone. I can only hope some high ranking politicians received the same email we all did saying all their data is now out there and take action.

And when you express concern it's "well then don't use their services". Okay, so by that logic you can't get a bank account, buy or rent a house, get a job, get a phone number and whatever else, because they literally ALL require you to hand over everything.

I'm fucking pissed. There is nothing you can do to protect yourself against this kind of stuff. You are constantly asked to provide all your highly sensitive personal data for the most mundane of things nowadays and if it all blows up, like it has now, the burden is 100% placed on us. I now need to monitor my accounts. I now need to change my passwords. I will be the one dealing with whatever damage gets caused by this. At best wasting heaps of time, at worst losing money or worse. And this is effectively for the rest of my life. Is the expectation that I'm going to change my legal name? Somehow get a different date of birth? Move house? Get another phone number and email address? No. This information is out there now, just waiting for someone to come up with a creative way to abuse it. Could be tomorrow, could be 10 years from now, could be when I'm old enough to easily be taken advantage of (most scam victims are elderly). &#x200B; And the company that caused all of this? Maybe Optus will get some meaningless fine, money of which I will never see as a victim, that will not change a single thing about the above, and money Optus will simply recover by raising their prices the following year. And that's a maybe, because there's every chance Optus will say it was out of their control and that they're not to blame. But they are. If you choose to capture personal details, you shouldn't be able to throw your hands up and say "whoopsie". The deal should be that if you choose to capture personal details, you are now liable for anything that happens with those details. If I lease a phone from Optus and I drop it, I'm supposed to pay for those damages, no matter what my excuse is. Why should it be any different for personal data. Applying that same level of responsibility on people's personal data should make companies think twice about how much personal details they want from people. &#x200B; The system is properly fucked, but don't mind me. I'm just here monitoring all my accounts FOR THE REST OF MY FUCKING LIFE.

You're kind of emphasising the point of my post which is that a lot of people do indeed either ignore reality or have simply not thought about it in much detail. I chose the absolute best case scenario in my post, which is having high volumes of off-chain trading be included in the burn (which is not the case today), and yet the numbers still don't work out. That said, I don't believe it has failed because I believe that those that implemented it didn't think it would be the be-all and end-all solution either. Plus there are no negatives to it as far as I'm able to judge. At worst an underwhelming amount gets burned putting us in pretty much the same situation as before the tax was implemented.

Commented by /u/time_to_reset in /r/LunaClassic on September 23, 2022 10:58:18

The general idea is that as fewer tokens exist, those that remain will increase in value. Those that buy are betting that increase will be enough to offset the tax, just like how everyone bets increases will be enough to offset the fees exchanges charge. Minting was turned off first. Was disabled months ago.

Commented by /u/time_to_reset in /r/LunaClassic on September 23, 2022 10:46:48

I wouldn't go so far as to say it has failed. The whole point is that if strong interest can be generated in other ways, the burn will compliment it. The burn on it's own can't and won't fix the problems that exist however.

Commented by /u/time_to_reset in /r/LunaClassic on September 23, 2022 10:28:12

I'm not 100% sure what your question is, sorry. The point is that regardless of how much we burn, the number that gets burned will almost inevitably stagnate if that's the entire plan. It'll become more and more difficult for buyers to get LUNC basically and unless interest to buy scales at the same rate as the difficulty to buy does, the number of transactions will taper off. That difficulty to buy itself might generate enough interest for a bit, but eventually the lack of utility of LUNC will cause that interest to stagnate or even become negative when people try to liquidate their LUNC because it's no longer making them money or because they fear a crash.

Commented by /u/time_to_reset in /r/LunaClassic on September 23, 2022 10:18:28

Yes. And then again 1.2% if you decide to stake those rewards again. So ignoring fees, say you withdraw 100 LUNC. From that 1.2% is taken meaning 98.8 LUNC makes it into your wallet. Then when you delegate that 98.8 LUNC again, another 1.2% is taken again meaning 97.6144 LUNC actually gets delegated. Something to keep in mind when you plan your staking strategy.

Commented by /u/time_to_reset in /r/LunaClassic on September 23, 2022 09:23:19

I have my own thoughts on the $1 bit, but outside of that I just wanted to point out exactly that, to not have your entire decision to put money into LUNC hinge on this 1.2% burn tax. Like you said, it's going to have to be one of the many steps out of the hole.

Nah I know, I've built computers when I was younger, but convenience has a lot of value too. I'll see by the time GTA comes out.

Commented by /u/time_to_reset in /r/gaming on September 23, 2022 09:14:32

Rewards don't come from minting, but from the proof of stake system. No new LUNC is minted and I believe the mechanism to do so was disabled entirely several months ago, meaning that unless it's reinstated through a proposal that passes voting, the supply can't go up.

Commented by /u/time_to_reset in /r/LunaClassic on September 23, 2022 09:08:56

Burn tax applies on the staking rewards too, so I guess we should encourage lots of people to do compound staking and to withdraw and delegate frequently.

I don't believe any single wallet has that much in it. The largest wallet is Terra Form Labs with 432 billion. Binance is 3rd on the list with just 29 billion. Even on 2 trillion the burn is only 30 billion though. Sounds like a lot, but is still only 0.4% of that 6.9 trillion.

Commented by /u/time_to_reset in /r/LunaClassic on September 22, 2022 10:10:39

I'm sure they want that, but that doesn't mean it's realistic. The total supply is around 6,900,000,000,000 LUNC. So what would be a good burn rate? How about we just take literally ALL the LUNC burnt so far. Hell, let's even round up and assume we burn that EVERY day. 5 billion per day. More than we've burnt so far in total but it magically happens today and doesn't stop until we've hit 10b. At that rate it would still take 3.6 years to get to 10b. And just as a reminder: at 1.2% burn tax to hit that 5b per day, a grand total of 416.6 billion taxable transactions have to be made. That's basically 1/16th of the total supply of LUNC being being transacted on-chain every single day for the next 3.6 years. As you might've guessed alreasy, it at some point becomes near impossible to maintain a burn that high. At 1 trillion with 500 billion staked (as is the case now), 100% LUNC in circulation would have to be traded. These are already highly unlikely numbers, but what about wallets being lost? Especially after the crash plenty of people just said "fuck it". What would be a realistic number of wallets lost? For Bitcoin it's estimated 20% is in lost wallets. But Luna is newer, people are smarter now. So maybe 1%? How about 0.001%? I mean, 3+ years to keep track of your wallet is a long time. People switch computers, phones, move house, pass away. With that number it would mean 6.9 billion is lost. And there's hundreds of thousands of people that are sitting on millions with zero intention to sell anytime soon. Especially when prices go up. I could go on. I don't mean to be a pessimist, but let's keep our expectations realistic. Hundreds of millions this, a billion that. Those numbers sound exciting, but the truth is they get absolutely dwarfed by a number like 6.9 trillion. It's like those visualisations of Jeff Bezos his wealth. 1 million is 1 cube. 1 billion is 1 000 cubes. 1 trillion is 1,000,000 cubes.

Exchanges don't have a choice. Any transaction that happens on-chain is taxed. So when LUNC is deposited into the exchange or withdrawn from it, that's an on-chain transaction. The thing that is still up in the air, and something the exchanges do have a choice in, is applying the tax to transactions that happen on their platform, because those transactions are off-chain. They are basically the exchanges moving around the LUNC amongst their members and those transactions don't interact with the chain that has the burn mechanism.

I'm not sure if the fees are fixed or not. They seem to scale a little bit if you try to withdraw a smaller amount, but it's always around 5 LUNC for me. Same for when you delegate again. So if you're with a single validator you'd probably be looking at around 10 LUNC in fees to withdraw and delegate. Keep in mind there's now also the 1.2% burn tax on both of those transactions. With 1m staked I'd say you can expect about 1,000 LUNC per day and you'd lose about 10 LUNC in fees and 24 LUNC or so in tax.

I'm sorry for replying to everything. I know how "fun" market research can be so figured I'd help out a bit. When I was younger I would ride more in general, partially because I had more time and was less bothered by weather and wearing gear. So I would have riding on my mind a lot more, ride the bike into the city and would go by shops after work and then go for longer rides on the weekends. I feel you also see that with motorcycle meets. It's usually people in their 20s. As I'm a little older now I ride far less. For one because I now value gearing up properly way more, but also going into the city dressed for the office on a bike is more of a hassle. With work and personal things also taking up way more time I prioritise something like getting home at a decent hour over running to the shops to look at helmets. That's now part of the hobby I do on the weekends. N=1 here obviously, but it's been a similar pattern for most of my mates. Less time, more money means priorities shift towards containing the hobbies to a couple of hours on the weekend.

Yup, I'll always go to MCAS first and AMX second. My SO also prefers MCAS even though she doesn't ride. It's more inviting to just look around a bit even if you're not that into riding. Especially during summer when they have the roller doors open it's a bright and comfortable place to be. MCAS also seems to have their shop laid out to support that with the clothing and things like that up front with the parts and things like oil further back. I think it's a similar problem that car dealerships have been trying to solve. Trying to create an atmosphere where it's less of a hurdle to just walk in and have a look around. &#x200B; I would also argue that the reason people drive is because they might bring someone. Could be a mate or a significant other, but I don't know if that's actually true. &#x200B; Also, talking to the community bit, back when I started riding there was a shop that pretty much said "if you guys need a place to meet up before a group ride, use our parking lot and if you give us a heads up we'll have coffee for everyone". I don't know if it actually generated a positive ROI for them, but in terms of getting traffic to their shop it seemed quite successful.

Ah it was a little further down about the demographic bit. >Given the demographic I think you'd be catering to in the CBD I would also like to call out that when you first start out, motorcycle stores can be fairly intimidating sometimes. Dark places, filled with all these things you might not know anything about yet. I think MCAS in Keilor has done a pretty good job at making the place feel inviting and enjoyable to walk around in whereas AMX is more that traditional motorcycle place. &#x200B; Reason I say that is when I started out, I found it very difficult to ask even basic things like how a helmet was supposed to fit. Felt like I was just supposed to know those sorts of things. And you still feel the "pff, it's only a 250" vibe people sometimes give off. Not necessarily the staff, but other riders that happen to be at the store. I know now it's just part of the hobby and can laugh about those people feeling all cool because they ride a bike. It's also definitely gotten better over the years, but when my mate who is also mid 30s and who is the big "walk in and get it done" type of personality became visibly uncomfortable when we went to get him his first gear, I realised it's still very much a thing with new riders. That's why I thought to mention it. I might not have done the best way to explain it and the beard thing was a bit of a joke.

Commented by /u/time_to_reset in /r/melbourneriders on September 21, 2022 00:40:25

Hey and great to hear. Definitely also post this in the Melbourne motorcycle groups on Facebook as this group is fairly small and I don't think you'll get heaps of replies here. I believe we're also a slightly older demographic here vs Facebook. So you can place me: mid 30s male, ride an older Fireblade and have been riding for about 15 years. &#x200B; 1. I live inner north and I generally go to Keilor as you have AMX and MCAS right next to each other that basically have everything I need. I prefer MCAS of the two. They are about a 20 minute drive/ride from my house I'd say. 2. I've been riding long enough that I generally have most things I need already, so I don't have to go that often. When I do need something I usually simply stop by a place when I happen to be in the area, so having what I need in stock is the most important thing to me. If something has to be ordered in, I'm afraid you can consider me a lost sale. I get that it's really difficult to balance what you have in stock and what not so I really appreciate it if stores show stock levels and/or offer the option to click and collect. 3. With Peter Stevens gone I think there's definitely a market in the CBD (there's several other places just outside of the CBD already), but it'll be an expensive location and I think you'll be catering to a different type of audience than something an AMX or MCAS that are a bit further out. I would expect more the audience that has just started riding, smaller capacity bikes, (electric) scooters. Not a bad audience per se in that they will be more likely to be buying new gear compared to the older people like myself that have been riding for some time and have most of the things they need already. It'll probably also be an audience that will have to street park their bikes or in a shared garage vs in a private garage/shed if you go further out, so things like locks and security systems might seem like a good potential product category. On the other side of that you could make an argument that the younger generation might be more price sensitive and more okay with buying something online because it's a little cheaper (after they've test fitted it in store). 4. Being in a convenient location and having the things I need. Bonus points if it's a place where I don't feel out of place not having a beard (more on that below). &#x200B; Parts I've always found a difficult thing. I prefer to support local businesses over ordering something online even if it costs a bit more, but outside of more universal things like brake rotors and pads or chain and sprockets, the store almost always has to order in the parts you need. At that point the wait is often the same, the price is usually a little worse and it means I have to go to the store again later. With that in mind (and knowing nothing about running a store), I would probably stay away from any parts. Especially as it takes up expensive inner city floor space and people living inner city are less likely to have a place to really work on their own bikes anyways. &#x200B; Given the demographic I think you'd be catering to in the CBD I would also like to call out that when you first start out, motorcycle stores can be fairly intimidating sometimes. Dark places, filled with all these things you might not know anything about yet. I think MCAS in Keilor has done a pretty good job at making the place feel inviting and enjoyable to walk around in whereas AMX is more that traditional motorcycle place. &#x200B; As you mention community being a pillar. Are you familiar with Kustom Kommune? I've never been, but they seem pretty good. &#x200B; Good luck with your business!

With so many horror stories around, I understand the worry, but sometimes you just want a vehicle and you can't be bothered picking it up. Especially if the price is good enough where there's a bit of margin for any potential fixes in it still, why not. But for dealers especially there's also a volume/time element. For example, they might have a dealership with several fulltime employees. The mortgage/rent for the dealership and the salaries for those employees needs to be paid regardless of how many vehicles come through the door. They might as well just risk getting a dud every now and again if the flip side of that is a steady stream of vehicles coming in. Especially because if a car does need a bit of work done on it, that's relatively cheap as labour is a fixed cost.

I'm fairly certain your calculation on the burn tax on the staking rewards is wrong. It's 1.2% on the amount being transferred. Not on the total value of your delegations. So assuming no other fees, if you have 100 LUNC, you pay 1.2 LUNC in burn tax to withdraw. So of your 100 LUNC staking rewards 98.8 LUNC makes it into your wallet and 1.2 LUNC gets burned. Then when you stake that 98.8 LUNC again, another 1.2% burn tax applies, so of the 98.8 LUNC you delegate, 97.6144 LUNC actually gets delegated and 1.1856 LUNC gets burned.

I can't tell you if the price is good, but it'll be fine as a first time bike. It's light, not too complicated or powerful, parts are generally pretty affordable and they're easy to work on. Important to keep in mind that rental vehicles will generally have had a harder life than non-rental vehicles. Why would you warm up a bike that you're going to give back in a couple of days right? And if the rental company knows they're going to be selling the bike soon, would you still bother with maintenance? Doesn't mean it's in bad shape or in worse shape than a bike that isn't an ex-rental, but because of the potentially rougher use ex-rentals tend to go for less than vehicles that don't have a rental history. The same goes for ex-track bikes.

It's really disappointing reading these comments, because it shows it's not just me. I always enjoyed the old Verge layout. It was clean and clear, and a good way to catch up on tech. I find the white on black with these bright blobs everywhere incredible difficult to read. To the point where I find myself actively squinting. It's also totally not clear what the order of the page is. There's articles with bigger headlines, articles with smaller headlines, these big blocks on the right that are formatted as if they relate what's on the left, but that's not the case. It's actually an uncomfortable design and as I understand from the comments they're wanting to be like Twitter or an RSS feed? I guess if that's the case the website might just not be for me anymore.

At the risk of coming across as pro-China, here goes: There's a lot of weird things being said in this video. * It's suggested that grass and trees are being painted with oil based paints based on a single photo from 2007 in which not grass or trees were painted, but a quarry face. Oil based paints could've been chosen for that application for many reasons, but it's implied that it's because of cost savings. Is oil based paint actually even cheaper and is the cost difference big enough to completely ignore the fact that oil based paints would likely kill the grass and plants it is being sprayed on? * I feel the title implies that China - as in Xi Jinping and co is paying for mountains and grass to be painted green, but from the video itself it sounds as if the government is actually trying to incentivise the planting of trees and plants. It's just that this system is being gamed. * This video doesn't address at all how widespread this issue is. There's only a handful of generally fairly small sites being shown. Like someone painting a lawn and a couple of rocks in a quarry, yet China is a country the size of the US with 1.4 billion people. We don't say all Americans are fat because we see some fat people in the news. We don't say all Americans shoot up schools because we hear about some school shootings in the news. Yet we paint (pun intended) all Chinese people with the same brush on some footage that's apparently collected over a period of almost 15 years. * Is China not allowed to make certain touristy places look a little nicer? Is it outrageous deception when they do it, but when Californians, golf courses and Disney Land does it, it's all acceptable? &#x200B; Look, I'm not pretending China doesn't have problems, but this feels like a silly anti-China video in which a point is trying to be made with some very weak arguments.

That doesn't really answer my question. Mould is considered an urgent repair. So we're on the same page on what is considered an urgent repair as well: * Gas leak * Flooding * Serious fire damage Mould is in that same list. Meaning it's in the fix NOW list. Not in the "fix it when you get to it". Not in the "fix after several months or fix after a VCAT judgement". It's in the fix NOW list. So I repeat the question. What would've been the better route now knowing that the landlord had no interest in doing the bare minimum that is required of them to rent out a property - which is making sure that the property is safe to live in? &#x200B; Is what you're suggesting is that the tenant should spend at least more than a few months on building mutual respect and a good relationship with the landlord? All while forced to live in an unsafe property that is actively impacting their health? A privilege for which they get to pay the landlord money? And all of that so that you are more likely, although still not guaranteed, that the landlord might actually perform their bare minimum duty as a landlord by providing a safe property?

I'm mid 30s and started surfing about a year and a half ago and surf about once every other week. In a wave pool, which I would say is basically cheating as you get lots of predictable waves every time. I'll be honest, it's blown me away a little how long it takes to progress. I ride skateboards and longboards a lot, I can snowboard pretty well, I can wakeboard and windsurf a little so I figured it would be a lot easier than it is. I can catch waves and ride them to the end but I've not been able to do anything more than just basic turns beyond that. I'm trying to learn cutbacks only now really and there's still plenty of times I can't even get the take-off right. That said, I've never been bothered by it. I'm having heaps of fun, even on mid-winter days where I'm in 8°c/46°f water, can't feel my hands and feet anymore and keep wiping out wave after wave. As long as I'm not in anyone's way I consider it a good day. And most of the people I'm in the line-up with are not too different. Plenty of people on longboards and even soft tops just chilling, happy catching a couple of waves and just riding them. No turns, no tricks, just a nice little ride. It might look boring, but I get it. If I had been early 20s and in better shape I'm sure I would be progressing way faster, but as it is, I'm enjoying it plenty. Don't let the idea of not being good enough keep you from having fun.

I can't speak to the price itself. Compare it with some similar bikes on Facebook Marketplace, Gumtree and Bikesales if you're unsure. Make sure km and condition are similar to keep it fair. Also, keep in mind bikes that are further out generally are a little cheaper than those closer to the city. In regards to the RWC question, the fee to have a shop do an RWC is like $150. So at most you would be saving $150 by organising it yourself. Is that worth the hassle and risk of additional costs to you? And that's assuming they sell it with the plate, if they don't you're looking at another $20 at Vicroads, plus the cost for a trailer and/or a temp rego to get it there for the check. &#x200B; Personally, I've bought bikes without an RWC (and rego) but in those cases the discount was much bigger than $300.

I obviously don't know if it makes an impact at the level of an F1 driver, but you get used to shifting with either hand really quickly. The shift pattern stays the same as does the pedal layout. You just make the motions with the other hand. I would personally be surprised if it made a difference. In the grand scheme of things, moving the gear lever is a pretty simple motion.

There's a lot of charities doing really great work on this front and as far as I'm aware Woolies does a pretty good job working with them. OzHarvest for example is one that we work with that I know works a lot with Woolworths.

I just checked the numbers for tax deductible donations in another reply. You might actually be better off yourself depending on which tax bracket you're in:

Commented by /u/time_to_reset in /r/melbourne on September 13, 2022 02:40:15

I just checked the numbers and the funny/shocking thing is that depending on the tax bracket you're in, you "win" more on average by doing a tax deductible donation than buying by buying tickets for this lottery For every $3.07 you spend on this lottery, you get on average $1 back. But if you were to donate that same $3.07 and deduct it from your taxable income you would be looking at these numbers: * If you're in the 19% tax bracket: you get $0.58 back * If you’re in the 32% tax bracket: you get $0.98 back * If you’re in the 37% tax bracket: you get $1.14 back * If you’re in the 45% tax bracket: you get $1.38 back If you fall in the 37% and 45% tax brackets you are literally making more by donating your money than to play the lottery. &#x200B; Even if you fall in the 32% bracket you are just a tiny amount below the average return from the lottery ticket! If you were to buy a $100 lottery ticket your average return would be $32.57. If you were to donate that $100 and deduct it from your taxable income in the 32% bracket, you're getting $32. That's a $0.57 difference for a 100% guaranteed, zero luck involved $32 return on every $100 you donate. &#x200B; I'm actually a little blown away by these numbers...

It is a lottery so this is what the real data looks like: * According to their website they have 227,000 tickets. * According to the same website they have 15,680 prizes * 227,000 tickets / 15,680 prizes = on average 1 prize for every 14.48 tickets sold. * A ticket is $100, so on average you need to spend $1,448 to win 1 time. * They have $7,400,000 in prizes, divided by 15,680 prizes = on average $471.94 per prize. &#x200B; So you need to spend on average $1,448 to win $471.94. The key bit here is "on average" meaning that long term, no matter if you buy one ticket per year or a thousand, no matter if you buy for one year or the next thirty, you will on average lose $1,030 for every dollar you win. &#x200B; And keep in mind that there are way more lower value prizes than high value prizes. * There's a single house worth $4.7. You have a 0.00044% chance that you win that. * There are 10 cars from what I can find. You have a 0.0044% to win that. * But there are also around 11,500 gift cards of $100. You have a 5% chance to win that. That means that for every prize you win (for which you have to spend on average $1,448) you are around 1,150x more likely to win a $100 gift card than you are to win a car and you are 11,500x more likely to win a gift card than you are to win the house. &#x200B; Outside of my opinions on how gambling is normalised and promoted. There is nothing wrong with any of this. You're supporting The Royal Melbourne Hospital and having a bit of fun doing it. It's definitely more fun than simply clicking the donate button on []( but please be aware that you are effectively giving money away. If you're really only doing it to support the RMH you might want to donate normally instead as a lot of your money for the lottery goes into marketing and management fees, instead of to the hospital.

I personally don't put too much value on what people say. Zak Brown said they were committed to Ricciardo and that's just one of many examples of where someone said one thing and then did another. Plus they wouldn't have to look for a new title sponsor if the Sofina deal continues right? That deal currently brings in around $30m per year and the only downside is that they get a driver that isn't great, but could be a whole lot worse (Mazepin). On the other side of that, De Vries might bring in other sponsors. Sofina might not bail on Williams if they replace Latifi. It might be that with the new owners and the budget caps, the pressure for funding is low enough where they would take a better driver regardless of the Sofina deal. I obviously don't really know, but I've just often found that when money is involved, it doesn't really matter what people say. I do hope that De Vries gets a seat though.

It's important to realise how small and well suited the Netherlands is for cycling and public transport. For one it's very small. I believe you're from Lithuania based on your profile. The Netherlands is a third smaller than Lithuania, but has like 7.5x the number of people. All of that means distances between things are very short. For example the top 4 largest cities are all within an hour of each other. Even with traffic. Add half an hour and you can reach 9 of the top 10 largest cities. Add to that that the country is flat and has a moderate climate and you end up with a place that's ideal for public transport and cycling. Almost everybody grew up cycling to school. Many cycle to work. So infrastructure was built around that which in turn makes cycling even more comfortable. That said, almost everyone still has a car. Especially outside of the cities public transport isn't as good and a car is just handy in a lot of situations. Except for a small group of people that live in the middle of the large cities, few people have a problem with motorists.

I suggest reading Adrian Newey's book called "How to build a car". It's a really good book, but also sheds bit of light on what happens behind the scenes, although it's obviously written by someone in a high level position. My take away was that if you value things like a healthy work-life balance, it's probably not the job to take. It's constantly crunch time, working outside of business hours and you're constantly competing against the very best and most motivated people in your field. There's a pretty amazing experience in reward if you love everything to do with racing, but if that isn't the case it might be a tough job. It's like engineers wanting to work for Space X for example. It's not the best paying job. It doesn't have a great work life balance, but it is the place where you get to work on something very special.

I used to say that too, but I don't really feel they're comparable anymore. Sure, the sensation of speed and experience while riding is unmatched, especially for the money, but bikes come with so many downsides. Maybe it's an age thing or lack of time, but with a car I can just get in and go, rain or shine. With a bike I have to put on gear, get the locks off it, can't comfortably bring anyone or anything, have to wear earplugs, bring other clothes if I'm going somewhere, etc. They have a role, but if I had a more experience focussed sports car, I don't know how much I'd still take out the bike.

It has ruined enthusiast vehicles for me, but not in the way you describe. I still would love something like an Ultima GTR. I don't care at all that there's some EV that goes faster. It's all about the experience. (Can you tell I owned an MX5 at one point?) It's the same auto vs manual conversation. Yeah an auto is objectively better. It's faster, more fuel efficient etc. But in terms of experience, I would still take the manual. What EVs have ruined is that enthusiast cars now are trying to, or feel the need to compete with EVs. Journalists I think play a role in this. A 3 Series gets compared with a Model 3 and then a Model 3 comes out being better because it is quieter, smoother, etc. Sure, I get that it might be those things, but that's not what I buy a 3 Series for. It's a different experience. It's like saying that watching a movie at home is better than going to the cinema, because it's cheaper and you can make your own popcorn. Sure, those things are true, but it's completely ignoring lots of other aspects of why people go to the cinema. So EVs are ruining what enthusiast cars used to mean. It used to be about feeling connected with the car, enjoying the drive. More and more it's about feeling isolated from everything around you and giving you gimmicks to distract you from driving. And I consider all this 0-60 in 2 second stuff a gimmick too.

I've been riding for about 15 years now I think. When I started out I was quite literally fearless. Young and dumb as they say, but you grow out of that luckily. Now my fear is simply not making it back home to the people (and cats) that rely on me, so I ride accordingly. Not just doing dumb stuff yourself, but there's a lot of people out there that seem fairly unaware that they're sharing the road with others. Good thing is you already say you ride defensively. In my experience female riders also have a lot less need to do the "look at me" thing. I refer back to my young and dumb comment. &#x200B; The bike flipping or falling down in a turn really doesn't happen that much anymore. Tires and bikes have become so good now and you generally have to do something silly or just be unlucky for it to happen. That said, it's also not the end of the world. Most of us have been on the ground, it happens. It does sound very scary as we always tend to hear the horror stories, but falling happens all the time. As long as you're wearing decent gear you should be alright in most cases, even if the crash is at higher speeds. In most cases you end up with a bruised ego, a few real bruises and an expensive repair bill. Again, most of us have been there. It is scary, you try to avoid it, but don't let it stop you from trying riding entirely. Maybe do an introduction lesson somewhere to see how riding feels. &#x200B; Lane splitting is fully optional, but you'll automatically start doing it once you start to feel more comfortable on your bike. You'll feel how wide the bike is, when and when not to do it (be super careful around trucks) and you'll instinctively will just slip in between the cars. But again, it's optional so if you don't want to do it, don't. &#x200B; Lifting up a bike is a trick and nothing to do with strength. It's just that if you're strong enough you don't need the tricks. Plus if you drop the bike, people come running from every direction to help you. It genuinely is nothing to worry about. You can find videos on Youtube on how to pick up a bike if you're curious. &#x200B; I can't talk to the cat calling bit for obvious reasons. I have some female friends that I've never heard about it, but that obviously doesn't mean it doesn't happen. There's a female rider group in Melbourne that you can contact. I will say that with some gear on and a full face helmet on, you're pretty unidentifiable. &#x200B; Hope that answers some of your questions!

Alright, but the point still stands. Australia takes in mostly young, healthy, educated primarily white immigrants that have a very good grasp of the English language, deliberately choose to move to Australia and can afford to pay thousands of dollars for a visa. Sweden takes in refugees from completely different cultures, that didn't really choose to move there, that don't speak the language at all, etc. It's comparing apples to oranges.

Your information is wrong. Australia doesn't do refugees in any big numbers. We're a country of 25m people and grant less than 20k refugee visas per year and he government has been accused of cherry picking the "best" refugees they accept. We do have more immigration, but there's very strict rules on who is and who isn't allowed in. Basically if you aren't young and aren't bringing money or desirable skills, you can forget getting a visa here. Australia is also very urbanised. We're a big country but half of our population lives in just two cities, so it's easier for immigrants to blend in. Compare that to Sweden which has a population of just 10 million people which takes in the same numbers as Australia. And Sweden isn't as urbanised so blending in isn't as easy.

I enjoy taking photos at meets at times, but I'm always super mindful that it's my "job" to work around people, not them around me. If I don't want someone in my shot, it's on me to wait. Not on someone else to wait for me. If I notice people holding back because I'm taking a photo I always encourage people to just ignore me. Over the years that kind of developed into a style. Close-ups so people can't even walk into a shot if they wanted to, long lenses so I can stand far away and people just do their thing while I wait or deliberately having people in the shot to capture the atmosphere of an event. And I actually think my photos have become better for it. Not that I'm a great photographer or anything, it's just that lots of people tend to take somewhat straightforward photos which I feel are a bit boring sometimes.

I get that a lot of people have trouble with the scale of what they're looking at. Especially if you're used to places like the US, but to put things into perspective: cycling from the bottom left to the top right in this photo is not even 5 minutes. This is not some large city block or a complete town. Lemmer itself has a population of just 10,000 and this is a little part of it somewhere on the outskirts. If you're not from the area, you would be hard pressed to find it if you visited Lemmer. Most of the homes you're looking at are holiday homes occupied by people that like boating. So very little use of cars and pretty quiet in general.

Commented by /u/time_to_reset in /r/europe on September 4, 2022 10:36:32

I grew up in Lemmer and most of us didn't care for it much, but it's popular with people that like boats as it's close to all the big lakes. Space wise however, this is pretty decent, good even by Dutch standards. It is one of the most densily populated countries in the world after all.

Commented by /u/time_to_reset in /r/europe on September 4, 2022 10:20:37

I bought an Oppo Reno 10x Zoom a little over three years ago. A bit of an experiment because in my part of the world they weren't that common, but had a good experience with OnePlus before and the Oppo seemed compelling. I don't use cases on my phones nor am I overly protective of my phones. And I'm currently typing this on the same device. I know 3 years isn't that long, but it's the longest I've ever used the same device. I like switching every other year or so, a new experience and things like that. But I just have very little reason to do so with this phone. Everything is holding up great. Battery still lasts a good day. I had a software update to Android 12 a couple weeks back. Still get regular security updates etc. Truth is that I'm actually impressed by how well it has held up and I would buy another Oppo in a heartbeat based on my experience with this one. I will be switching to a foldable this year, intended on before, but that's genuinely just because I want something different, not because I have any complaints with this one.

Ah that makes it all okay then, because mentally ill people that have run-ins with police are known for their ability to make well thought out decisions and are fully capable of understanding the long term impact of things. You know, the exact type of people that knows how to read and interpret deliberately vague and complicated contracts and the type of people that knows when a pushy producer is selling them bullshit. And this not being an exploitative show at all, I also have no doubt producers wait until the people they film are sober and have had a good night of sleep. Good thing the show is being run by such nice and considerate people, because I could totally see how a less ehtical producer would format the waiver to look exactly like the other paperwork someone has to sign after having been arrested and stuff it in with the rest so it can be conveniently signed at the same time.

I think we're saying the same thing, but apologies if that's not the case. The deal with construction is often that the private party taking on the costs to build something is allowed to operate it. That's why our toll roads are operated by Transurban. Transurban I believe is paying something like $4 billion of the Westgate Tunnel for example and in return they're allowed to operate it, which means they are allowed to collect tolls, but they're also responsible for maintenance etc. Now I'm not saying it's a good deal or anything, but I understand why it works this way.

Commented by /u/time_to_reset in /r/melbourne on September 1, 2022 23:59:34

I definitely think we've gone too far with privatisation the last several years. Our healthcare and education system absolutely need changing, but for public transport I think there's an argument to be made to have part of it be managed by the private sector. In Europe they're trialing allowing multiple private companies to operate lines and compete against each other instead of having this sort of monopoly that we have here for example although that might not work as well with busy inner city lines.

I'm not sure if you're after a real answer, but one of the bigger reasons is that large projects cost a lot of money and take a long time to complete. Because of that, those projects are difficult to get through government. Take the Melbourne Airport Rail project for example. $15 billion dollar project. Will take almost a decade to complete. Let's look at some voters: **The camp that is probably in favour of the line** * Someone living in or closely around the CBD - Love it. They can go on holiday much easier, don't have to pay for expensive taxis anymore. * Someone living in the city but a bit further out - They're ok with it. It might not benefit them directly, but they can see the benefit to the city. &#x200B; **The camp that is against:** * Rural Victoria - They will never use the line or see any benefit from it and the primary thing they see is that once again all investment goes into the city and nothing is done for them * Anyone living in the path of the line or close to it - they will now have a train running through their backyard impacting their property values or worse, they will be forced to sell their house and relocate. &#x200B; That's already a nice little split and there will be plenty of nuance and people in between, but it gives you an idea. But then there's things like politicians that are committing to an expensive 9 year long project. Generally nobody is positive about construction. For 9 years there will be news articles about delays, cost overruns etc. It's a big risk for a career politician. And there's industries with influence, like taxi companies and hotel chains. &#x200B; A government can go through all of that, or they outsource large part of the hassle to a private party that makes a profit. In some (definitely not all) big projects it becomes a choice between having something be run by a private company vs not having something at all. That's also the case for some of our toll roads for example.

I don't know about this case, but it also doesn't matter. Think of cease and desist orders like this: Say you get charged with a crime you didn't commit. You know you didn't commit the crime, police knows you didn't commit the crime, you have evidence to say you didn't commit the crime, but you are still prosecuted. Now, you'll most likely be found to be not guilty right? But think of what it took you to get to that outcome. You'll most likely have wasted a lot of time, money and energy you're not getting back going to court, hiring lawyers, compiling evidence, etc. It's the same here. Ferrari doesn't care. They have a small army of lawyers that get paid regardless of if they sue you or not. There is next to no cost for them to make your life a whole lot more complicated. However, you as an individual most likely have to spend a whole lot of time money and energy for what? The best outcome is that you get to keep doing what you were already doing. At worst you lose out on even more money. &#x200B; So it's not always about if they can actually enforce the order, it's about how much appetite someone has to go through all the hassle involved with Ferrari trying to enforce it. This is also why plenty of people and companies settle over things they might have a very decent chance of winning. In plenty of cases it's cheaper/easier to just pay a few bucks and be done with it. A lot of patent trolling works on this principle as well.

I always do bank transfers, even for bikes far cheaper than this. I'll do a deposit through the bank on the spot so the owner has my details and can verify things if they so choose, then transfer the remaining when I'm picking the bike up. I almost always get something in writing. I usually do a receipt of vehicle sale which you can download from the Vicroads website or something with the same info. Have it say the full sale price + the deposit paid and any conditions (like pending rwc or ppi). Make a copy, both the seller and I sign both copies and I I take a bunch of photos of the vehicle (make sure you take a photo of the VIN). I also take a photo of the owner's drivers license with the signed receipt. They usually do the same with my license. I then don't get the vehicle until the owner has the money on their account. It might be useful to bring two copies of an empty receipt of vehicle sale to fill in on the day + a pen as not everyone can print or has pen and paper available on the day. Also make sure you agree on a price before your test ride and what happens when you wreck during. I always say I'll buy the vehicle for the agreed price when I wreck which so far has not been an issue, but you might get insurance for the test ride and the owner might want you to cover the difference between insurance payout and agreed price etc. This doesn't cover every situation, but it at least gives you and the other party something.

The F1 was insanely expensive at the time. $815,000. In fact, they had trouble selling all of them originally because it was so much more than anything else. The XJ220 was $580k, the F40 was $400k, the EB110 was $500k etc. Onky 107 were made and only 64 of those were road legal versions. They could've made more. Now compare that to all the $4m+ cars that sell out before they are even announced to the public.

Nothing is pushed to the absolute limit in this car. It's the same engine as in the Chiron Super Sport 300+ which came out 3 years ago and which itself is not all that different from the engine that was in the Veyron that came out 17 years ago. Similarly the chassis is based on the Chiron's which has been around for years. There's nothing wrong with that strategy. McLaren does it. So does Lamborghini. But nothing is trickling down into "normal" cars from this.

This all comes down to being young and overconfident. Bought an NA MX5 that a guy had tried to slide in the snow. He had hit a tree towards the front of the driver side door. There was definitely damage but the window was still rolling up and down and the door opened and closed, so I figured it would just be a matter of replacing the door and the rocker panel I would just leave dented. There was also a broken windshield, but I figured that was a separate issue. Well, let me tell you, I misjudged the whole thing. The A pillar was pushed in slightly. Not enough to really see something was off without really measuring everything really closely, but enough to make fitting the door pretty much impossible. Basically it looked like that door opening was 1 cm shorter than the door. With a lot of love from a hammer and a welder we eventually got the replacement door in, but I never dared replacing the windscreen. The place that did the glass measured it up and said it should fit, but I just didn't dare to take the risk so I drove it with a broken windshield for 3 years.

He could spend a million dollars PER DAY and still be alright for the next 16 years. And that's assuming he has nothing else. Only a small portion of his net worth comes from Tesla. Only something like $30B of his total $260B net worth is Tesla. Space X is something like $100B of that.

I wonder if this was all just a big ploy to be able to cash out of Tesla shares without tanking the price. He's now sold a little over 31 million shares in the last 12 months. About 17% of the total shares he had this time last year. When he sold 5 million shares it earlier this year, the price of Tesla fell by 12% which will have had a much bigger impact on his bottom line than the $1B he might lose to Twitter.

For me it's also to a fairly large degree that yeah there's fewer parts in an EV, but those parts are a lot more expensive. Like total-the-car expensive. For example, degraded battery packs have to be replaced as a whole unit at like $20k+. Even if just a module fails within them and you can get someone to replace that module for you, you're looking at several thousands of dollars. Likewise, a drive unit of which something like a Model 3 has two, is something like $10k+ to replace. That's the same concept as buying a second hand car where the engine can just grenade at any moment. I realise that ICE cars require heaps of maintenance too, but it's not usually such catastrophic single points of failure. This is like Porsche's IMS bearings or BMW's rod bearings, but without the ability to take preventative measures.

Now I live in Australia where I have a Subaru Liberty with a 3L H6 engine, which was the biggest engine Subaru offered at the time (also does 0-60 in 7 seconds btw), and my car is considered middle of the road at best in terms of speed and averave in terms of size despite being 5 Series sized.

Despite how we might all feel like this stuff as fans, Formula 1, Indy, McLaren etc are businesses and in business contracts exist for a reason. All these drivers and their managers have been in this business long enough to know that if a signed contract is not in place, nothing is final. So when I saw the Piastri thing, I figured he must have had a contract in place to make such an strong statement. If that's not the case and he loses out on a seat in F1 as a result, that is 100% on him in my opinion. Similarly regarding DR, as much as I like the guy, he is just not providing results. As far as we know he is given the exact same equipment and support as Lando is, yet he is consistently nowhere near Lando's performance. Again, this is a business. Zak might love DR on a personal level, but on a business level he is acquiring a service from DR and DR is underdelivering. If it helps (or at least not harms) the business that is McLaren to refusing to elaborate on DR's position or performance, or using the position to bait junior drivers, why wouldn't Zak do it? It's not like drivers don't do the same thing. DR left RB very abruptly despite seeming committed to the team pretty much up to the last moment. It was equally a surprise for the RB team according to news at the time. DR chose his own business over that of RBs, and he should.

It's actually pretty simple. You speak English and you would like to give someone from Japan instructions on how to do a certain job. You could learn Japanese and write the instructions in Japanese, or you could employ an interpreter. In coding, you would use one language (C++ for example) to write the instructions. You then give your instructions to the interpreter (called a compiler) that translates your instructions into a language a computer can understand (machine code/machine language).

I'm just envisioning soggy acoustic foam panels on the walls... Realistically though it's no different from soundproofing any other room, so any tradie that can soundproof a home theatre could soundproof a bathroom. I'd say it's worth identifying where you need to sound proofing though. It's unlikely you need a 6 sided silent box. Maybe it can be as simple as getting a new door or putting foam in a single wall to make sure sound doesn't transmit into the bedroom for example. Maybe you just want to reduce the flushing noise or reduce the sound of the tank filling up. Both of those could be fixed by replacing the actual toilet for example.

Just back from a week on the Amalfi coast and was very impressed seeing so many of the original Panda still on the road but after about 5 minutes of driving there I thought "these people get it". I was in a regular Panda myself, but even that felt big sometimes. The 4x4 bit also makes so much sense now. I used to think why you would want that in such a small car, but again, it just makes sense. Lots of newfound appreciation for Italian cars.

Ignoring everything that's wrong with the country, the idea of building cities from the ground up to be highly liveable and efficient is not something I have an issue with. It's pretty common knowledge just how flawed many modern (car centric) cities are. I just don't understand why they have to be these silly themed things. Like The Line, that floating hexagon city, this. Why not develop the perfect city using simulations. Bring in the smartest people on this front, play Sim City/Cities XL on steroids and develop the perfect city. Share that research and be a genuine example for the rest of the world. Make a city so liveable that people actually want to live there. Now all these projects just feel so incredibly hollow and vain, and it's a shame really. I'd like to believe we can start from scratch and use everything we've learned as a species to build a great city. It's kind of like how all this crypto bullshit is having a negative impact on the concept of having a decentralised banking system.

What makes you think they won't? They're already investing heavily in solar. They held the title for largest solar power plant for several years (Sweihan Power Project). They have the National Renewable Energy Programme to promote solar power projects in the country. They have partnered with Softbank to install an additional 200 GW of solar over the next 8 years. They manufacture solar panels locally. Just last month they announced the largest solar power thermal plant in the world and in their Vision 2030 are several large renewable projects. &#x200B; Like there's a lot wrong with the country, but they are doing a lot more than many other countries when it comes to renewable energy.

It's slightly off-topic, but I've now called the non-emergency number three times and all three times the wait times were between 30 and 40 minutes. Look, if two cars wreck hard enough for the cars not to be able to move anymore without a towie, but everyone is physically alright, that's not exactly a 000 call in my opinion, but you're kind of forcing me to call it anyways. Similarly a distressed person with clear mental health issues trying to go to sleep on a tiny green strip in the middle of winter is not a life or death situation, but still 40 minutes to even get to inform police about it is a long fucking time.

The Tata Nano is just over 70 cm wider than the C1. The C1 however is only about 10 cm wider than a sport tour motorcycle like a BMW K1200S without panniers (those luggage boxes you often see on sport tour motorcycles). Regardless, the Nano also was never officially offered for sale outside of India anyways as far as I'm aware. There are vehicles like the Renault Twizy which are even narrower than the Nano, but I literally drove one of those today and I can promise you that you still won't be lane splitting in those either, nor will it be considered acceptable to park those on sidewalks. And that's ignoring things like not being allowed on freeways etc. Whatever way you spin it, the C1 was a solid solution. It's just that between people like yourself that prefer the additional comfort of a car at the expense of manouverability, and motorcyclists that don't see enough value over a regular motorcycle and a rain cover, there weren't enough buyers. As someone that knows how convenient commuting on a motorcycle is, if I ever had to do a daily commute in traffic in a place with shitty weather again, I would absolutely take this over any car. Keep your massaging seats and good stereo, I prefer getting home twice as quickly.

It's besides the point how much they cost, because they don't solve the same problem. If you want running shoes because you have a marathon coming up, you don't compare their price to dress shoes because they don't do the same thing. You buy a C1 because you want the convenience of riding a motorcycle like being able to lane split, being able to park everywhere for free, the low fuel and service costs, but without the main downsides of a motorcycle in that you have to wear a helmet and get soaked when it rains. You don't buy a C1 because you want a car without doors.

Commented by /u/time_to_reset in /r/WeirdWheels on July 17, 2022 15:57:42

I used to commute in a motorcycle for years and based on that I'd say these would be really solid in rain. Obviously nothing like a car but way better than a normal motorcycle or even a scooter. You could get a special rain cover for your legs and you'd be pretty protected that way. Definitely enough for a commute. They might not have been cheap, but they were definitely cheaper than a car, but with this you don't have to deal with traffic. They recently showed an electric concept of the C1, hope that makes it into production.

I love my state, but this EV tax is one of the most backward things we've done in recent years. We are an embarrasement the way we've been handling the uptake of EVs. We're one of the most urbanised countries in the world, heaps of commuting, lots of stop and go traffic with our grid layouts. We're perfect for EVs, yet you hardly see them. I understand there's eventually going to be problem with not enough tax coming in if EVs take off, but in my opinion the benefits of EVs to our cities far outweigh the downsides of not enough tax coming at the moment. There was also a great opportunity to get a battery factory built here, but that's another thing altogether I guess.

It isn't that they can't work. It's that mist don't want to. Retirement age is already going up and you should see how excited the currently working generation is about that. And caring for those before us has nothing to do with not being willing to. It's not being able to financially. Japan, who is sort of ahead of the rest of the world is predicted to tax future working generation at 70% to be able to support their aging generation. So if you are okay with never being able to afford to buy a home while working a normal job, having to work until you're 80+ then sure. In that case we can "just" care for those before us.

I see a lot of comments about how this only benefits rich people, but assuming we're only talking about illness prevention, there is a pretty significant benefit to society too. Especially if you're in a country that has universal healthcare. There's plenty of genetic disorders that mean you'll develop cancer relatively early on in life for example. Once you know that gene is in your family, every member in that family has to go through yearly cancer screenings and they will most likely require one or more cancer treatments throughout their life. Outside of the direct healthcare costs of that, there will also be significant periods of being unable to work which has a direct cost in terms of benefits having to be paid, but also indirect in terms of that person not contributing tax for example. And I'm not even touching the fact that there might be relatives working fewer hours to care for that person, the employer not being able to be as productive etc. &#x200B; So I'd say it benefits wealthier countries more so than wealthy individuals. It widens the gap between richer and poorer countries in the same way COVID vaccines do.

I recommend getting a local bank account and phone number as soon as you land. You can get into a bit of a catch 22 with that as you need an address to open certain accounts, but getting an address can be little bit of a challenge if you don't have a bank account and a local phone number.

I believe it was the first time this year they're doing this and I'm happy to report the official photos don't make false promises. With the smoke and the lights it really does create a very special atmosphere. The ride is about 45 minutes to Gembrook. At the station there, there was some live music, you can see the locomotive get refilled with water, go to the bathroom and most importantly, you can get some hot chocolate. After that it's another 45 minutes back. I recommend looking out of both sides of the car on the first trip as it looked like far fewer lights and projectors were on, on the return trip.

Say you make plastic cups. The plastic for one cup costs $1. The machine to make the plastic cups costs $50 and the mould for the cups is another $50. If you were to make 1 cup, that cup would've cost you $101 to make, because your total cost is $101 and it got you 1 cup. Now say you make 100 cups. You would pay $100 in plastic, but the $100 for the mould and machine stays the same regardless of how many cups you make. Now your cost per cup made is $2, because while you still pay $1 per cup, you are able to spread the $100 cost of the machine across the 100 cups. This is economies of scale at a basic level. Now say that you can buy another mould for your plastic cup maker so that you can also make plastic trays and this add-on is also $50. You have now spent $150 to be able to make plastic cups and plastic trays. If you now were to make 1 cup and 1 tray, you will have spent $2 in plastic and $150 for the machine. Your cost per unit is $76. One of your competitors however only makes cups and another only makes trays. Because they both need to have their own $50 machines and $50, making the same number of cups and trays would be more expensive for them. It would cost them $202 to make the same number of cups and trays. The cost per unit in that case is $101. This is economies of scope at a basic level. This can get a lot more complicated. For example you might be able to negotiate a better plastic price as you are buying twice as much as your competitors. Your machine will also be used twice as much, so it will have to be serviced twice as often which might impact your ability to keep up production. Similarly the downtime from swapping out moulds might impact your production rate. The cool thing is that you can exactly calculate if having two machines for example would be more cost effective than having a single machine with two moulds, etc.

If I break down at a critical time, I'll just leave the keys in the car and let the towie pick it up while I take a taxi or something. It's not perfect, but the way I see it, it's cheaper than buying a significantly newer car. I should add that much of my anxiety disappeared when I learnt way more about working on cars.

I agree, but I do love the ND's design. I think it has held up amazingly well. It's 8 years old and still looks as good as the day it came out. My NA was great fun and always brought a smile to my face, but it did look dated. The Elise S1 I still prefer over the later ones though. Including the Exige.

Your average consumer 3D printer wouldn't be able to print anywhere near the tolerances of actual Lego parts. Lego is known for having tight tolerances. From what I can find in the 0.005mm range. For regular 3D printer 0.1mm is considered very good I believe. 20x less precise. 3D printing also isn't user friendly. Being able to get high quality prints out of even fairly high quality printers requires a lot of calibrating to get good results before every print. The idea is cool, but I don't think we're close to this becoming a reality.

Wealthy people don't have money. They have assets they borrow against. If they were to buy something, they would have to pay income or capital gains tax on the money they cash out from their assets which is more expensive than paying interest.

You could report it for the statistics and if you want to claim it with insurance it'll be helpful to have a report, but unless you have the name and/or details of the person don't expect police to do much, if anything. They probably won't find the person who did this. I don't mean that in a "cops are bad" kind of way at all, but for reference: my $8,500 motorcycle was stolen from my garage. There was a camera there too, they touched my other motorcycle and car, but police didn't even come out and no camera footage was ever requested. They just aren't going to spend the resources on a relatively minor crime like this. I get it, it fucking sucks that the guy will most likely get away with it, but if the desired outcome is that the guy gets found and prosecuted, I would say it's not worth the hassle. You have a better chance trying to get the camera footage yourself and asking around to find out who he is. &#x200B; (Police ended up finding my bike during a search years later. Or well, what was left of it. Detective was a nice guy.)

People buy things they don't actually need all the time. People want AWD because they saw snow on TV once and thought "AWD sure would be convenient". People want 600 km of range on their EV because they might go on a road trip one day. They have never in their lives driven more than 500 km in a day, but they just want to know it's possible. People buy F150s because they once saw someone at the local hardware store with one load a bag of cement into one and it looked handy. The list goes on. And I'm hardly one to speak. I drive a station wagon which realistically I could easily do without. I need the boot maybe once per year and I could probably make a hatchback work as well in that case. That said I like knowing I have the option. With a dedicated sports however car you give up a lot of that functionality in return for something many don't actually care about: performance. That's the compromise with my wagon for example. It's not as fun, not as fast and doesn't handle as well as your Supra, but it's fun enough on public roads and it offers a lot more functionality than your Supra. And if I can only have one car, I rather compromise on performance than on functionality.

Two piece suits that zip together all the way around are sometimes OK, but not on all tracks. The info is all on the booking websites. Rain, well it's on you and how brave you are really. You don't have to hold back, but if you wreck, you wreck. Insurance doesn't cover you on track. Unless it's heavy rain the track day usually isn't cancelled.

I found track days are around $250-ish. You ride in groups based on skill level and you usually do around 7/8 sessions that last about 20 minutes each. In my experience there's always a lead rider that sets the pace, which is actually a really nice thing because they show you lines and braking points. They are busy days and you'll be pretty tired by the end of it. Something to keep in mind if you plan on riding back afterwards. You have to pass tech before you're allowed on the track. During that they'll check your bike is safe. The organiser of the track day will give you full instructions on what they expect you to do but generally you're required to remove your mirrors and tape off your lights. Regarding your exhaust, many tracks have noise limits. For Broadford and Philip Island that's 95 decibels. They have microphones around the track to monitor for it, usually on the straights. If you are too loud, you get black flagged which means you have to leave the track immediately for that session. Generally they will give you another chance, but if you get black flagged again you are usually done for the day. For most tracks other riders on the day will be able to tell you where they check for noise levels and you could hold back on those spots. This might not be an issue depending on your specific exhaust, but bringing a baffle if your exhaust has that option is probably not a bad idea. Other than that, keep in mind that if you start pushing, you will go through tyres and brake pads pretty quickly. You will also be up there in revs and going at serious speeds, so having fresh fluids and a thorough check that everything is working well and in good order is not a bad idea. And you need a helmet with a double D ring fasteners plus usually a one-piece leather suit + quality gloves and boots.

I 100% agree with you. In the US with its culture of privatising a lot of things, that model wouldn't work. China with its communist/dictator culture is pretty much the exact opposite. The middle ground probably is Europe where the infrastructure is often partially or fully owned and maintained by the government and the trains/trams/busses are operated by private or partially private companies that pay for use of the infrastructure. That allows government to subsidise connections that aren't profitable to the business, but do bring value to parts of a country. The UK and no doubt some other countries even do this with planes, where they subsidise a plane service that visits certain islands regularly. If I'm not mistaken, the US does that for an island in the Bass Strait as well.

Also, that's because public transport where you live is probably not great. Where I live public transport is about as fast, or faster than a car if you live in the right area. Combine that with not having to pay for fuel, maintenance and parking and it usually comes out cheaper as well. It's a matter of who starts though. Most governments won't start building something better until they see a demand, but there will never be any demand if the only options offered are shit.

I see some comments about how it's better for drivers having less traffic etc. but for me it's the impact cars have on liveability. I live right on a fairly busy road. I've always lived near busy roads so I'm used to the noise, smell and having to wait to be able to cross the road, but I often feel it shouldn't be as normal as we all think it is and do feel some shame when standing in traffic with my own car. Generally I walk, cycle, ride my electric skateboard or take public transport but plenty of times I still have to take my car unfortunately. &#x200B; I think part of the issue comes from the fact that everyone always talks about encouraging more people to cycle and walk, but very little action is taken to encourage that. What I mean by that is that if I cycle, I often have to cycle on a 4 lane road with cars passing at 60/70kph. There's no cycle paths and only fairly narrow footpaths. Similarly, there's narrow streets that are 50kph with cars parked on either side and also no cycling lane. I'm talking inner city streets here. I cycle, but my SO isn't and I kind of don't want her to either. It's just not save and it's definitely not an enjoyable ride. If they were to make that 4 lane street in to a 2 or 3 lane street with separated cycle paths and comfortable footpaths, as a driver, standing in traffic, I would see that and feel discouraged from taking the car, but encouraged to take advantage of these nice cycle paths. The same, if they removed parking from one side of the narrow 50 kph street. It's slowly happening where I live, people still love their cars and their free street parking, but there's definitely progress. They're also investing heavily in public transport, so I'm hopeful this trend continues.

I charge my phone daily through USB-C and used a headphone adaptor for a long time. So that's plugging in and out maybe 5 times per day or so and my port stopped working properly after a year and a half or so. Headphones aren't identified anymore and charging craps out constantly if you move the phone while it's charging. I've not abused the port in my opinion and I've cleaned the port properly plenty of times, including wiping the contacts with isopropyl alcohol etc, but I've accepted that these ports just aren't designed for that much use. It's not a massive deal, I've accepted that the convenience of wireless headphones is pretty significant and I can buy a replacement port for $20 which isn't all that much maintenance for an $800 phone over 2 years, but as these phones last longer and longer I don't consider USB-C strong enough anymore to last the life of a phone if you don't do anything wirelessly.

I buy ex-track motorcycles and high mileage cars for this exact reason. I did not enjoy the stress and financial pressure of owning and maintaining perfect examples of vehicles. Plus there's also benefits in the purchase price. For motorcycles I've found you can get all the goodies like upgraded suspension, tuning, etc at no extra cost.

It's not accepted as payment anywhere, there's no stable coin mechanism in place anymore, there's no projects being developed around it. Burning and getting other people to buy in doesn't do anything to address that. It only ensures that those that bought in earlier make some money.
