Excellently put! And let's not forget, if those are 30 private cars, they are idle for a large part of the day and contribute to the need for excess parking at home, at work, and other locations (because people tend to need to go to the same place at the same time), meaning probably at least 60-90 extra parking spaces. The extra space for parking further expands the sprawl of cities, which means that the average driver needs to drive a little bit further with each additional car on the road. Whereas that 1 additional bus has a negligible effect on parking because it is in use most of the day. It actually encourages densification because more people want to be close to the stops.

I pull the gaiter up over my nose when I need it and then drop it down when I need to breathe heavily. I found the mask was still too hard to breathe through for me and I hated pulling it down with the straps tugging on my ears. But hopefully OP can try out some combinations and find what they like.

My partner and I have been car free since we moved last year and it's going really well. I personally would recommend it along with getting a Zipcar membership. We are on the isthmus and each have a mountain bike and an ebike. Between ebike and public transit we can get anywhere between roughly Atwood and campus in about the same time as a car. For the further east side we use public transit or ebike, but on rare occasions when we have to get to the dreaded western suburban sprawl, we often use the Zipcar membership. We also love to camp and hike so we either bike camp or use a Zipcar, especially in the winter. It's definitely doable in Madison (and honestly more fun than when I used to own a car). For the winter I recommend a neck gaiter and nice mittens, and ski goggles if the temp is below 20. Also we've invested in cozy socks and wear them everywhere now. I'd say I'm warmer now than when I used to drive since I'm always prepared for it. I've gotta say it's a pretty fun and carefree lifestyle zipping around by bike in the summer. The biggest problem is that there are still some clueless drivers out there. But Madison is full of bike paths that keep you away from them most of the time, which makes it way better than other cities I've biked in.

I've been riding this whole winter and suggest ski goggles, a neck gaiter, mittens, and a lined hat under your helmet. Once you have that you'll be really surprised at how much less cold you are. Torso and legs get warm pretty fast. And depending on if you wear boots you might also need to double layer socks.

I would be an example of someone has been screamed at and changed my behavior. But I may be an outlier.

Wow, you got ' em on this tiny detail. The point stands that the US was not at all interested in doing the right thing and fighting the Nazis. Remember a lot of the US was German at that point, and up until 1939 there were still mass demonstrations in favor of Hitler and trying to get us to side with him https://www.nationalww2museum.org/war/articles/american-nazism-and-madison-square-garden And as I learned on a recent podcast, there were even 20 members of the House who were in collusion with a Nazi agent to keep us out of the war. https://www.npr.org/2022/12/15/1143078657/rachel-maddow-uncovers-a-wwii-era-plot-against-america-in-ultra The lesson to learn from this is that the US is not infallible, and that more often than not we act (or fail to act) out of ignorance, spite, and greed more than nobility. Breaking down these heroic myths can help us realize the darker parts of the American psyche that we know are still alive and well today. The issues that kept us from acknowledging that fascism was evil in 1940 haven't been addressed partially because our collective narrative suggests we always know how to respond to it when that has been shown to be frankly untrue.

How in the Mountain Dew code red do you not think ginger beer is sweet? > Almost all ginger beers have sugar content between 25 and 50 grams, with a majority of brands being in the high 30s or low 40s.

Yes. It's a classic.

The extreme example just reveals the logic of the less extreme and very realistic possibility of getting other people to help. We can help others change and that can do more good than simply focusing inward. Veganism should be about animals in their own right not how you feel about your personal relationship to them.
