The only people crazier than this man, are the sycophants who support him. And the only thing scarier than Trump, is the number of sycophants who support him.

Traffic research is ongoing, and in places like the Netherlands. bikes are often given priority. One paper has studied the capacity per hour of bike lanes.

This is the question that could shape transport in the future.
Cars need eight lanes to keep up with a single train moving the same amount of people.

I love water.
I love my toys: canoes, gadgets and a 29er that I am not qualified to ride.
I somehow meandered my way into IS through a process of happenstance rather than planning.
I love watching history doccies.
I am a bit of a paradox in many things.

I live for my three lovely girls, and to be happy (with thanks to John Lennon)
Bragging rights
I actually managed to marry someone wonderful, and produce two lovely girls!

Service has gone down. Frustrating that you cannot even speak to a local service agent. Don't know why Dell even bothers to have an office in SA.
