Pretty good rant, but one clarif -- you can make the "main details" page much bigger, by default, so that you don't have to click anything to find out who all was in and made the movie. Just a preference setting away, and it sticks like cookie dough.
As to ads, I really had no idea IMDB had ads...
You are dreaming if you think a tram system is a solution. At a minimum, it has to co-exist with a variety of other systems.
Tram, and bus, systems are chronic money losers, among other drawbacks.
And I'm a child of the 50s, not 60s.
Couldn't agree more.
When I see "light rail" / rapid transit coming in, I know I will be steering well clear of that area. There won't be a single thing designed correctly -- overly wide lanes, but not enough of them; traffic lights that are sinked to the phases of the moon, or perhaps estrus; speed limit designed to make power walkers and old people look fast.
And, as you say, for what? I would summarize this type of project as "Take 10 times too many resources, and make then 10 times less useful and effective, so that 1% of the population get served, somewhat."
But I'm not some 60's dinosaur. I also like to exercise by planting trees. For the city I live in. Season starting again soon, btw. And I'll be sharing my vehicle once again. My vehicle is a "mid size" truck -- GMC Sierra 1500 Extended Cab. Big guzzler, right? Except I don't use it much more than I use my mountain bike. And skateboard. And besides, the gas mileage is 2/3 of a Kia Soul.
I would never have thought I would own a truck. I've owned Cadillacs and MB's...but this truck is far and away my favorite vehicle.
It just shows how much we are brainwashed and lied to, about everything.
Relativity does not work at the quantum/Planck scale.
Since you are clearly quite clueless about all this, and I have better things to do, I officially exit this "discussion".
Given the sorry state of physics, there is nothing wrong with hearing from alternatives, "armchair" or otherwise.
However, you mix relativity...with string theory -- and you can't do that.
But the biggest wtf is that the missing stuff is all *delay*? So, are we do for a gigantic shipment of stuff at some future date? This nonsense suggests you don't know how to vet your own ideas.
So, Mr. Ph.D., you fail in the details, not in whether you are an armchair or "pro" commenter.
