Comment Electric Motorcycles (Score 2) 130

I'm eagerly anticipating affordable electric motorcycles.

I think Brammo and Zeros are rated at ~ 200-500 MPG equivalent?

That's way better mileage than even a fully loaded (everybody standing) bus gets in peak hours.

The problem with the electric motorcycles today is the price tag. The prices have dropped recently (from, say, $19,000 to $14,000, with ~$12,000 for very low end bikes that can't go very far,) but they need to go down further and increase in range.

That'll have to be a pretty sophisticated VR system. It'd have to be one that taps into your nervous system, can make you feel like you're actually exercising your muscles as you walk, and one that has a hell of a force feedback mechanism, so that you not only can't walk through walls, but can actually feel them with your hands.

Translation is poor friend. Sorry.... As for: "2) is especially important if you train somebody for a job." ... then yes, I'm saying the company should do that!!! After all, if a company has such employees and expertise, and experience, then they could create a new thing! A new market! We've seen that happen with the Internet, eh? Whatever that is! I reckon capitalism is just that, instead of just sitting on all markets like some fat dragon and controlling everything. Right?

Rubbish. I do hope it's true for your kids. And you. But most of us struggle, and are beaten down because of corruption, the de-regulation of employment law, and have no recourse when things go wrong. Lawyers and "rights" are for the rich, or at least the middle class. Then you get old. Think about it.

If builders built buildings the way programmers wrote programs, then the first woodpecker to come along would destroy civilization.
