Comment Re:Batteries (Score 1) 461

I have a 23 mile one-way commute to school, there's no charging places at my college. For a healthy chunk of EVs that alone would totally deplete the battery, meaning that if there was a charger nearby I'd have to stop and charge every single day. Or I can fill up my tank and go 2-3 days INCLUDING my job in pizza delivery.

Comment Re: He cheated OTHER players (Score 1) 399

The casino assumed the cards that were given to them were symmetrical because they ALMOST were. The player knew they were not and used that to his advantage. Flipping cards that are symmetrical does not help, so the casino did not have a way of knowing they were being cheated unless they discovered the asymmetricality of the cards.

Comment Re:There will be no train (Score 0) 408

And a big part of the reason is because Europe has cities that are much more closely spaced than the US does. Not only does that directly benefit train usage it also means that those cities were built around the idea of using trains from the beginning, instead of grafting them on 100 years after modern urbanization. It works in Europe, it probably won't here.
