Oh, I completely believe those figures. I just think it is the beginning of the end for new additions. Heat pumps and induction cooktops are viable alternatives to gas and governments are starting to react. My prediction is that we’ll hit peak new gas in the next decade and it will tail off after that. Might just be wishful thinking though.
I have thought a lot about this because they’re the same in my city. My best guess is that you don’t want a driver to try to rush loading to make a green light. The other guess is that there is some advantage to clearing the turn lane as soon as there is a green. It would be especially hard to place before the light if there was a dedicated turn lane. What do you think? Maybe a bus driver would know.
I get that you’re asking a real question, but having something unexplained is not evidence. It is a just a question.
Once you remove actual observable, repeatable data from the conversation anything is possible. Speculation can be fun for its own sake. It can also be productive if we try to find out if it is true.
Well, the correct scientific language would be that there is no evidence of it existing. Equally, I may have an invisible, silent, undetectable person following me at all times. There is no evidence to support that, but I can’t logically state that they aren’t there because you can’t prove a negative. Of course, in normal convesation we would just say that my undetectable friend doesn’t exist.
Towing and carrying crew. Let’s say you have a heavy duty trailer for hauling supplies or equipment. You need towing capacity at this level. Then to eliminate a chase car for a crew of 3 to 5 you need a decent cab. Trust me that a tiny backseat is not acceptable (try exercising for 8 hrs straight and then holding a crunched up position for an hour and you’ll get the point).
All of that to say that there are real uses for vehicles like this, but most people who buy them don’t have those needs. Nobody would buy a semi to tool around town in. It doesn’t make any sense that these are treated differently.
Thanks for the suggestion. I definitely might go that route. It seems like the ease of just picking the biggest/first server might be bumping agaist the idea of federation and why it is valuable. I am so used to going to centralized platforms that I am trying to fight the urge a little when choosing where to set up.
How did you get to beehaw.org over lemmy.ml?
I don’t see the answer to the question I think you’re askin and I want to know the answer to so I will rephrase. Please correct it if this isn’t what you’re asking.
If I am on instance A and we federate with B but not C and B and C are federated, does instance C content show up on A if only posted on C. I assume A and C users can interact with each other and on any content posted on B but neither can interact with content posted on the other instance. Is that right?
