In my area there's these share bikes and share scooter companies all over. Some are electric and some are manual i believe. That's hopefully getting people out of taxis and ubers too. 

Be careful what you wish for, this is what some places in my neck of the woods looks like:

The problem as i see it is... everyone is on a single level, now im not one of them highfalutin 'route planners' but im sure we would be better off with a multi-level approach, i appreciate that traditional building materials like concrete and tarmac would be impractical so i would propose something similar to Scalextric.
We could combat the waste plastics floating around in our oceans by collecting it all up in a giant sieve and recycling it into sections of track, the seasalt needn't be a byproduct because it be incorporated into the compound as a de-icer for the colder months. When a section of track becomes worn out or damaged just pull it apart and shove a fresh section in, everyone would be going the same speed (ultra-fast) and on a preset course so no chance of collisions and even in worst case scenarios we can just have a loop the loop down to the next section.
As our population grows we can build it higher and even though the folks at higher altitude would have much further to travel they needn't worry about being late for work because their watch will have slowed down due to kinematic time dilation.

Aaarh!

Gmail updated to their newest version yesterday with some very unpleasant new features, ive just has the first post-update email from a friend regarding sunshine, spending time with the kids and all good things, gmails new reply feature has already scanned the incoming email and filled in my response via proxy.
I have the choice of "I agree with you" "Have a great time" or "Very funny"
I don't have to take them up on their generous offer of course, i can do it myself if i could only bear to communicate with friends.... fuck, im going to ask Alexa to contribute to denimbro in future cos i can't be arsed Angry

^^ I’d imagine that email isn’t even from a ‘friend’ but more likely an auto-generated one from a new Hotmail function or something similar.

I was trying to make toasty soldiers last Saturday and the handle on the toaster wouldn't stay down, i sorted it with an improvised fish slice, using a tin of beans as a weight... It was only £7 from argos and we've had it for 12 years so we've had our monies worth.
I thought i would get a new one in the black Friday shenanigans, having never bought a toaster before i thought i'd better be prepared and had a peruse online.
WTF! terrible DJ and TV presenter Fearne Cotton is now a 'celebrity toaster designer'

Fearne Cotton Lily 2 Slice Toaster Lily

Its 'on trend' apparently Sick

She also hosts a Radio 2 show on Sunday nights at 7pm. I heard about 10 minutes in the car recently and turned it off before the temptation to drive into an HGV overwhelmed me. If you think her toaster’s bad, just give her droning, whining show a spin!

PS just get a classic Dualit toaster.

We used to have one but the timer dial stuck and burned the element out, it was only just out of guarantee, i know you can buy replacement parts buy my annoyance resulted in "fuck it, just buy a cheap toaster"
