Presuming the ratings are honest - which I do not trust them to be. Customers have no interest in honest ratings, and can be penalized for them if they cast aspersions on the service. The rental agency itself has no incentive to be scrupulously honest because they don't want to piss off too many providers.

With AirBnB, you don't get to see the other guys' review until you have posted your own. So there's no fear of tit-for-tat retaliation, and most of the reviews should be pretty honest.

once you turn cruise control on, where do you place your foot?

I usually keep my foot over the brake, especially in traffic which is heavy but flowing. I think that's going to help my reaction time; I can make small speed adjustments through the cruise controls buttons (coast, etc). I use my cruise control pretty much anytime I'm not on an urban street.

Maybe those in power really do know what they're doing.

In this case, I don't think they did. Cameron gambled that he could appease his Eurosceptic Tories with this referendum, not really believing that it would ever pass. It was a major miscalculation.
