Q: Anybody want to ride the new bus, train, whatever it is?

I saw the prototype a few years ago and now it's ready for usage, any volunteers.

The problem I see with it, and a lot of people are pointing this out... is that it seems to depend a lot on people driving in their own lanes, and staying in those lanes.

 

This is China, lanes don't mean much.

Three things:

-Lanes are not respected here

-The bus looks freaking slow

- It can carry a lot of people but i think there's not enough doors. Seeing how chinese are always looking for who wants to go out, and move out of the way/are helpful( very ironic) , i think it might be a problem.

It's only on a 300m track... I reckon it'll still cause accidents just in that 300m!

looks like a sci-fi shuttle craft on the star trek movies after the original episodes in the 80s just a lot bigger in size

Interestingly enough, the concept was first proposed in the USA by two Architects in 1969.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
