SilentStrider: i've been pulled over for sleeding on that stretch in the past
PacManDreaming: SilentStrider: i've been pulled over for sleeding on that stretch in the pastI hate sleeders. I hope the cops gave you a big, fat sleeding ticket.---------------------------------------------------------------------My commute is 45 minutes one way for me. I'd like to have a shorter commute, but I really don't like the city my job is located in.
MaudlinMutantMollusk: Hail Atlantans!/♫ Way down, below the Mason-Dixon.... ♫
DON.MAC: Mega-commute? More like a a moron-commute.
SilentStrider: I hate typos I don't catch.
Jim_Callahan: For reference, there are something like 300 million adults in the US and something like 90% of those are employed. So "over half a million Americans" is basically one in 500 people.//That said, wtf, people. Mass transit.

Mass transit.youre not good at statistics. 90% employed? so there are no elderly or kids in the US any more?
DownDaRiver: Half a mill?Doesn't sound like a lot.Seems like NYC, LA alone.
dragonchild: The Lost City of Atlanta does not exist. It's an optical illusion caused by fumes mixing with vapor from the freeway asphalt./ we can only hope

Gulper Eel: 50 minutes for me...would be 45 but New York likes to use traffic signals with busted-ass timing...at empty intersections in the middle of the night...as revenue generators.Even without cops camping out at the signals in hopes of extracting their pound of flesh, all that extra idling burns through a lot of gas. More gas-tax revenue for the state! I figure I burn through a tank or two every year this way, and with the state taking its 50-cent-a-gallon cut that's another 20 bucks in their endless campaign of nickel-and-diming the shiat out of people, as they figure (rightly enough) that people won't realize how badly they're being farked if the state takes a little bit of money a hundred different ways.
Day_Old_Dutchie: Forward-thinking leaders decentralize their offices to the 'burbs or allow telecommuting and take full advantage of tech available to eliminate the needless energy waste and frustrations.The problem is those useless egotistical stubborn old coots that insist on running their business in an office tower in a downtown, and actually obtain satisfaction from being able to look out on row upon row of worker bees in their cubicles.Farking Luddites need to be put out to pasture. Age does not always equate to wisdom.
