Yay! *does the joyful dance of being-able-to-eat*

dianahobart? How 'bout you?

Okay. Now I'm going to go all bipolar and return to an earlier mood.

Air pollution in LA and Vancouver. *Harrowing*. Over 75% of LA is asphalt and concrete, and people are actually being driven out of cities by the "higher being: the automobile". The amount of energy required by a car to transport one human being during rush hour is forty-two times the energy required by a bus.

O.O

And... *thinks* ...only 64,000 Vancouver commuters on average use the bus, out of about 1, 600 000. That's... just... disturbing.

What the hell is with the Car Culture? What is wrong with people? o.O

*never ever, ever buying a car*

Because buses suck, bus schedules suck, bus routes suck, and bus stations suck worst of all?

True. But that's because buses are considered second-class transportation even by the people in charge of them, our entire culture being built around automobiles. If people stopped driving cars and started using buses, there would be more people using buses, and it would no longer be considered second-class, and the people in charge would put more effort into making them less sucky. Yup. :)
