That appears to be an 89 foot pipe flatcar about to be unloaded by idiots. Those are not beams--they are sections of track. The average weight of American railroad track is 130 pounds per yard. Each of those rails are about 80 feet long and so, would weigh just about 3460 lbs. I am pretty sure the whole load exceeds the maximum safe loading for those fork lifts.

Park City, UT is definitely not underrated. Fifty years ago, maybe. Now it is a super high priced ski resort for the wealthy and elite. The place is overcrowded with McMansions and millionaire club ski lodges. The Sundance Film Festival is a once a year event held in three main locations. Park City is only one, and it is mainly only a place for celebrities to be seen by their adoring media. They should have kept that for their map of Overrated Places.

I'm absolutely, positively, certainly, doubtlessly, utterly, otter-ly maybe and talking about otters, and badgers, and squirrels, the fact that squirrels are outside my window while I type this comment out about how utterly, there it is otterly again, strange this book is.

Vaping, Energy Drinks, etc. What do they have in common? They're fairly new - we won't know the full extent to how bad they are for a few more years at least. Be careful out there, kids.

I look at recycling the same way I do smoking cigarettes. If 50 people smoke cigarettes and 1 stops, its no indication of whether the 49 will stop. Likewise, it's no indication of how many more will start up smoking in the future. Obviously, if everyone magically stopped smoking today, all over the world, it would be great. But as a person who believes heavily in determinism (and not so much in free will), I know this isn't how things work. So what I'm saying is, yes recycling is good, and you definitely get "good feelings" personally from doing it. Just know that you'll never get everyone on board, and people will never universally agree on whether it's good or not. Keep in mind that India and China have wayyyyyyyyyy more people than America. If they don't get strict on pollution, it's huge, regardless of whether or not you being your own organic burlap sacks to Wholefoods or not.

I was a Teaching Assistant in grad school - it's a requirement for graduation. But the quid pro quo was a degree, so I don't know if that qualifies as slavery.

From Stephen Mitchell's translation of Tao Te Ching:Chapter 11 We join spokes together in a wheel, but it is the center hole that makes the wagon move. We shape clay into a pot, but it is the emptiness inside that holds whatever we want. We hammer wood for a house, but it is the inner space that makes it livable. We work with being, but non-being is what we use.

Yes and No. Without groupthink there is no group. But without individuals branching off, you've got no innovation.The arguments of "group vs individual" are invalid. "We use plastic to make a cup, but it's the emptiness inside that we use"

That metal thing on the tub is the spout, you know where water comes from. The vent in the floor? Yep that’s where vents go, it’s where mine are in my two bathrooms. Toilet paper sits on the shelf next to the toilet , pretty obvious. The closets are likely pocket doors or non functioning. I’ve stayed in hotels where the jetted runs are just like this. All I really see wrong is that yea the tub edge is close to the sink.

Then we threw it all away on a diet heavy in salt and sugar. None of the produce growers compete on flavor. They all grow stuff that ships well, resists bugs and pesticide, and appears fresher longer instead of being tasty. Tomatoes now bounce when you drop them.
