WTF is he doing to that horse?
I don't know, but I hope the horse kicks him in the balls. Looks like it is ready to do so, anyway.
What does it cost to feed a horse?
And then there is the matter of all that horse shit in the streets (if everyone is riding a horse).
is that a still from 'Zoo'?
Most people couldn't afford horses. Even mules were pretty expensive back then.
You do understand that the food you eat and the wine you drink is produced in the country and transported to your local store by the means of some sort of fossil-fuel-powered conveyance, right?
Yeah, or else they'll just increase the cost of the food that they grow and you pay for.
And since when has the American farmer had a happy life?
you are such a stupid fuckrag. i hate when i accidentally read your posts.
@6 - Actually, Canada already has done experiments on wind-power fuel cell engines for trains, which are far more efficient than diesel engines, flaminggbanjo, so that's not technically true.
And with plug-in hybrids getting around 100 mpg and most of our region having cheap electricity from wind, solar, and hydro - it definitely won't be true for much longer.
W.I.S. : I think what you mean is it technically is true, unless those wind-powered trains you speak of are currently in operation, having replaced the fossil-fuel-powered trains and trucks that currently transport food from producer to consumer.
But it's a great idea, nevertheless.
That photo disturbs my innards.
Sculptor David Černư has been there and done that: http://img.radio.cz/pictures/umeni/cerny_vaclav_lucernax.jpg
will, an overhead line would be more efficient than a fuel cell.
also, for trains having a line form of electricity would be more feasible because train trips are generally point a to point b trips, instead of the multifaceted trips of cars.
Give it up people. There's too many of you. That's the real problem. Everything else is just tinking around the edges.
@10 - they built them, so they exist.
Mind you, that was around 2004 ...
Over where? Ocala, Florida? Does being intentionally opaque in references give you kicks? A link finally gets put in a charles post and it, unsurprisingly, has nothing to do with the post itself? Oh, almost forgot, do you hope that those "Happity" (ps WTF is happity??) people in Oklahoma go back to horse-drawn buggies, because they may have a blind spot and may accidentally run over a "relative" that may be different than those people? And no, I don't feel like letting it go.
.... wow, CMIALR, you make my writing style look great ....
Nothing Charles has ever written is near as bad as using the phrase, " And no, I don't feel like letting it go" over and over again!
Not just poo.
Annoying things that went away and made cities nicer when cars replaced horses:
3) corpses rotting in street (really)
4) noise - yes, steel-shod hooves on cobblestones made quite a racket, compared to cars
5) having to put on an onion on your belt when you rode to Shelbyville, which was the style at the time
We all know what down sides cars have, of course.
17, 19: Somebody else needs to let it go...
Has the Amanda Knox story completely dried up? No Police Beat II?
I can't rememeber the last time that horse invited me over for a cup of coffee. Why must that horse treat me so disrespectfully?
Condescending AND totally out of touch with reality. Good one!
