can't you just take the subway to your destination?

hello everyone! i'm so glad i finally have a story for this sub after being a lurker for such a long time.

so to set the stage, i live in istanbul, and us turks are known for our bad city planning but istanbul is extra infamous for it, it's regular for us natives of the city to endure complaints about how bad the traffic is, how awfully structured the roads are and how long it takes to get to literally anywhere yadda yadda from out friends who came from other parts of anatolia to work or study here. i just want to get the point across for foreigners about how bad istanbul traffic and road structure is, if you have a car it is legit normal to have a 2 hour commute home at the very least, during rush hour.

anyways so at my work they provide a service bus because our building is in the outskirts of istanbul where they haven't connected a lot of public transportation means yet (this is also a common occurence for us corporate slave folks of istanbul, big companies like these are usually located away from the central parts of the city) and people who live close by take the same service bus. and the bus is pretty crowded, about 20 people who all live in close by towns to each other. like i said, i want you to understand how bad the city planning is, to get to these central parts of the city from our building in the outskirts would take no longer than 30 minutes, but traveling between the towns and dropping everyone off is the rest of the 1:30 hours.

so a karen joined our bus the other day, and she lived in taksim apparently, which is a very famous town and is literally connected to every bus, minibus, subway etc imaginable, even you foreigners might have heard of it. she is the only one out of 20 people who lives there. so the bus driver asks her if he can drop her off at a public transporation station that connects to taksim. which would literally be any station in the entire city. but she refuses, and also complaines about the bus driver all the way to the higher ups of the company. and the bus driver gets scolded and disciplined, and was told to drop her off at the exact location she wanted to be dropped off at.

cue malicious compliance.

next day the bus driver replans the route keeping taksim in mind. she is right about in the middle of the drop off order. and, i kid you not, it legit takes just an extra 2 hours in traffic just to reach to taksim. this is without including dropping off other people or reaching the city center mind you. and of cour

Carsharing is awesome and a way to reduce car dependency

Carsharing solves the "but what if I need to transport 6 months worth of groceries" problem.

From my experience the benefits are:

  • It saves a lot of money. - I'd guess, that my wife and I spend on average 30 to 50 € per month for carsharing. We do 90+ % of our trips by bike and walking. Owning a car would cost us probably 200+ € per month and wouldn't make sense for using it 0 to 3 times a month.
  • You can get the right car for the job. - The car sharing company were signed up with has a lot of different cars. Smallest cars, small cars, station wagons, vans, minibusses, and transporters? I want to pick up a couple of things from Ikea, that I can't transport with my bike? A small car can do that. I want to pick up some materials from the hardware store? I can get a van. I want to go on a trip to the countryside with a group of people? The minibus will do the job. We're moving to a new place? A transporter will do.
  • You don't have to worry about your car. - Since you don't own the car, you also don't have to deal with maintenance, checkups, etc. And you also don't have to worry about someone damaging your car.
  • You don't have to worry about parking. - At least with our system. The cars have reserved public parking spots. So when you return the car, you don't have to find a parking spot. You still need to find parking at your destination though.
  • You are more anonymous. - A carsharing car is not yours, so you can't be identified or recognized as easily as with an owned car.
  • They reduce traffic. - People can use other types of transportation for their main trips and reduce the amount of parked and driven cars. One shared car can replace up to 12 private cars.

There are some downsides too. Manly, that you have to watch the time if someone booked the car right after you. And if you need a car very often, it's more expensive than owning a car.

I still think that walking, biking, public transit and carsharing would be a good combo for most people who live in cities.

Thanks for listening to my TED talk.

Anyone here rode the Karachi Green Line Bus?

So, after much delay (I remember the havoc its construction caused on traffic back when I was living in Karachi), it has finally opened to the public since the beginning of this month apparently. I was wondering if anyone here has tried it and has any feedback to offer? I've seen mostly positive reviews on Karachi-based social media so far - and honestly, regardless of your political views, I think it was long overdue and much needed for a city like Karachi. I have had my share of traveling on rickety minibuses while living there and wouldn't wish it on anyone.

SERIOUS: This subreddit needs to understand what a "dad joke" really means.

I don't want to step on anybody's toes here, but the amount of non-dad jokes here in this subreddit really annoys me. First of all, dad jokes CAN be NSFW, it clearly says so in the sub rules. Secondly, it doesn't automatically make it a dad joke if it's from a conversation between you and your child. Most importantly, the jokes that your CHILDREN tell YOU are not dad jokes. The point of a dad joke is that it's so cheesy only a dad who's trying to be funny would make such a joke. That's it. They are stupid plays on words, lame puns and so on. There has to be a clever pun or wordplay for it to be considered a dad joke.

Again, to all the fellow dads, I apologise if I'm sounding too harsh. But I just needed to get it off my chest.

What do you think are the best alternatives to cars in rural communities?

Hi folks. Wanted to get your perspective on the matter.

I live in a rural part of the English countryside, wiltshire to be exact. I simply wouldn't be able to get by without a car at the moment. We are about a 10 minute drive from the nearest supermarket, about 30 by bike. Public transport is non-existant to our hamlet, as there just aren't enough people to justify sending one of the buses 3 miles out of its way to not pick up any passengers. The council pays for me, and one other, to get a taxi to school every day.

What do you think is the best car alternative here? Cycling is great when there's decent weather, but it is miserable in the rain, and you can't carry very much, especially if it's heavy like milk bottles. Buses are probably the most logical solution, but it would be horrendously uneconomical, not to mention the service would be so infrequent it wouldn't be much help. Someone I know floated minibuses to collect people and take them to do food shopping, which is OK I suppose, but it is still a barrier to getting people out of the house to other places. As far as I can see, the only reasonable choice here are cars.

I would very much appreciate what you think about the matter. Most of the people I have spoken to are either A) townies with no perspective of rural life and don't even realise we need fuel delivered, B) environmentalists who say cycling with half a dozen bags of shopping up and down hills is a good idea or C) rural people who think pretty much the same way I do about it or who are in love with their cars.

Alot of great jokes get posted here! However just because you have a joke, doesn't mean it's a dad joke.

THIS IS NOT ABOUT NSFW, THIS IS ABOUT LONG JOKES, BLONDE JOKES, SEXUAL JOKES, KNOCK KNOCK JOKES, POLITICAL JOKES, ETC BEING POSTED IN A DAD JOKE SUB

Try telling these sexual jokes that get posted here, to your kid and see how your spouse likes it.. if that goes well, Try telling one of your friends kid about your sex life being like Coca cola, first it was normal, than light and now zero , and see if the parents are OK with you telling their kid the "dad joke"

I'm not even referencing the NSFW, I'm saying Dad jokes are corny, and sometimes painful, not sexual

So check out r/jokes for all types of jokes

r/unclejokes for dirty jokes

r/3amjokes for real weird and alot of OC

r/cleandadjokes If your really sick of seeing not dad jokes in r/dadjokes

For the Stars, My Life - Would you abandon everything to see a galactic humanity?

On a hill crest between forests, the brass telescope sat gleaming under the full moon's light. "H.W.T." was etched in a fine script on the telescope's side. The man whom these initials represented was sitting in a wheelchair nearby, pinching pieces of algae bar into his mouth. He peered into the eyepiece between bites and transported himself across the void to the realms of Sirius, Vega, and Antares.

The brighter stars were like old friends; familiar, comforting, and predictable. But tonight he was seeking new acquaintances among the dim multitude at the edge of unaided sight. He swapped out the 20 times magnification eyepiece for a 40 and trained the telescope on Barnards Star. It seemed point-like compared to the visible discs of Betelguese and Pollux. Focusing made it no larger, only gave it a red hue.

He detached from the instrument and rubbed his eye. What a shame, he thought, that my only friends should be so far away. A coyote echoed his sorrow in the distance.

The damp air caused him to rock the chair in a violent cough. He would have to return indoors soon or risk another fever. Damn this Earth and its crippling illnesses. He began disassembling the telescope. The attachments snuggled between the brass body and folded stand when the door to the clarinet case used to tote them all clamped shut.

The journey home was a short one, for the ground he sat on was its roof. He rolled down the gentle slope and around to the crescent cut which was the underground's only exposed wall. An iron door set between stacked stones crushed any notion of a natural formation. He unfastened the bolt, slipped inside, and twisted around to lock the door behind him. Enemies didn't care how remotely one lived.

Relatives called it the badger burrow, and he couldn't argue. Six small rooms with two meter ceilings were fit to burst with all manner of "irreplaceable" junk. His eyes drifted across the piles now. Outdated star charts, model spaceships, and books, books, books. He grabbed one off the top and pinched apart its molding pages.

The Realms of the Stars: A Children's Guide to Our Universe. How long had he had this? Was he eleven years old? Twelve? His life was starting to blur but the important things still stuck. He turned to page 39 and descended to the beginning sentence of its third paragraph. "There are enough stars in the Milky Way to provide every family on Earth with their own stellar neighborhood." It was his favorite line in the whole book.

$LEV - Big LEVerage & Big Booty Buses

Hello fellow degens, I was the ape who uncovered the FTDs and the use of buy-write strategy to delay the delivery of shares, specifically on $ARVL - although it was happening on a number of despacs.

Due to the influx of shitty DD that I have been seeing over the past few weeks, I decided to research a company that not only has short term moonmetrics but long term potential as the EV industry grows.

None of this is financial advice. This post is simply my opinion based off my research. Do your own due diligence.

The following are a base set of statistics verified off Ortex:

Market Cap: $2.38B

Net Revenue: $69M (nice)

SI: 8.83%

Short Util Rate: 80.8%

I. Who are they?

The Lion Electric Co. manufactures zero-emission vehicles, which creates, designs, and manufactures all-electric class 5 to class 8 commercial urban trucks and all-electric buses and minibuses for the school, paratransit, and mass transit markets. It offers electric transportation, builds and assembles all of its vehicles’ components, including chassis,battery packs, truck cabins and bus bodies. The company was founded by Marc Bedard and Camile Chartrand in 2008 and is headquartered in Montreal, Canada. They are the first school bus manufacturer in North America, and have shifted into EV bus development as of 2014.

Currently, the Total addressable market (TAM) for their industry is:

  • 110B/year Total
  • 100B/year commercial trucks
  • 10B/year school busses

Going through their investor slides from the previous quarter, $LEV features impressive product line-up today and exciting roadmap:

https://preview.redd.it/rbiq2ynxgoq71.png?width=512&format=png&auto=webp&s=faf4ffcf90706a8f91b77cc2c94fdff7beff1684

Approximately 390 of the LION6 through LIONC have already been rolled out, with more contracts supporting nearly triple this amount (965 units). Lion is known to be a trustworthy and top rated commercial EV producer due to strong ties with the Canadian government, FAANG, and other Fortune 500 companies.

Now let’s talk about elephants in the room. Yes, plural. Yes, thicc thicc elephants, thiccer than your mums. As there are a few of them supporting the Lion’s massive dong.

II. LEVerage The Catalysts:

  1. Amazon & Ikea:

Amazon has placed the largest orders with Lion Electric to date and also has an opportunity to take a certain stake in the company (if it places more orders). As described [here](https://www.yahoo.com
