LA used to have a great streetcar system, electric light rail, fast, clean, long ago, just guess what happened to it.

Yup... you got it, that.

And we are still paying the price in wars for oil today.

The old PCC cars were really fun to ride, and they are faster than the newer cars.

They had sort of a bouncy ride.  

People really liked them. People want to bring something like the old PCC light rail cars back..

Yesterday I watched one of the recommended videos that pop up on youtube about Elon Musk and SpaceX. A little ways into the video, the host stated that "Elon Musk was our savior", at which point I stopped watching the video.

I was watching the launch of Tesla's tunnel and found it hilarious that all he's done is create a flippin guided roadway.

Adelaide has one with tunnels https://www.adelaidemetro.com.au/Timetables-Maps/Special-Services/Adelaide-O-Bahn

and  without tunnels in Cambridge https://www.thebusway.info/

And my home Towns Luton and Dunstable https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Luton_to_Dunstable_Busway
(sorry - the local busway site does not work now - local council stupidity at it's finest!)
