You do realize Hartsfield is the busiest airport in the world, right?

Re: Westport

We live in a free market economy as long as you can afford to participate, which is basically how it works everywhere else, but I think in most other places they're at least honest about it being bribery.

Re: P&L District: 13th & Walnut Site Proposal

I've only been during dinner hours a couple times, and it's typically pretty dead. They crank it out during lunch though.

Re: Hyperloop between KC and STL

For the record, my questioning of the tech's feasibility was was not in economic terms, it was in purely technical terms. Like, when an airplane depressurizes, they have oxygen masks and they can decrease altitude. Once in a while someone gets sucked out, but it's usually not a complete disaster / h...

Re: Hyperloop between KC and STL

The route might be viable, but people have been dreaming of vactrains for 100+ years. I'll believe it when I see it.

Re: Politics

There is so much talk about automated cars recently with Tesla and others working in self driving. I’m surprised that airplanes haven’t also seen movement in this direction. This would eliminate pilot cost and allow automated air traffic control systems. The cost would probably be paid for by the e...

Re: We need a new airport!!!

That's not true, aren't the upstairs fast food joints in B still only accessible outside? Why you'd leave secured area for a whopper instead of settling for a janky taco at the no-longer-acessible-outside-security taco joint is beyond me, but maybe you have to also poop and don't want to deal with t...

Re: Need cleveland ideas

I don't think Cleveland is struggling more than KC. I haven't spent a great deal of time there, but I was there around 10 years ago and even then it seemed pretty nice. This was as P&L had just been coming online for a bit, and downtown Cleveland at that time seemed healthier than downtown KC. They ...

Re: We need a new airport!!!

I think part of the problem here is that this is government we're talking about. They do growth projections and build models and then do studies based on those models, and by the time the projections and models and studies are all finished, reality has happened and some of the flaws in the models an...

Is it just me or does it appear suspiciously as though white American hegemony has made a pact with the Russian devil to suicide bomb the whole fucking thing if they can't keep it for themselves?

Re: Politics

I don't really have any skin in this argument, but it seems almost comically obvious that restrictions on behavior (which is to say, laws) don't exist with an eye to stopping those behaviors, they exist to establish a framework within which people who do things the government doesn't want them to do...

Re: Politics

I'm sure this is not what you're advocating, but the line between what I think you are advocating and a situation where immigrants are "welcomed" into "compassion camps" and "allowed" to perform slave labor to earn citizenship seems to me to be a lot narrower than you seem to think.
