commented on Why Public Transportation Will Not Work Without Aggressive Social Engineering
"...the fact that driving yourself to work makes you waste hours of your life in stop and go traffic.."
This is a "fact" that does not pan out for me. When I drive to work I get there, on average, 50% faster than when I bus (at the same times of day).
The fact that riding public transportation to work makes me waste hours of my life at other peoples bus stops discourages me from riding the bus.

“If you're walking around with a gun on you, especially if that gun is in plain sight, you become the hero of your own action movie in your head.”
Are you speaking from experience?
Do you have empirical data to support the fact you’re asserting?
Or are you just making this stuff up?
When I’ve open carried I’ve been more focused on how I’m going to pee without my holster, gun and clips pulling my pants down to my ankles (that shits heavy). Never occurred to me I was the hero of an action movie. Just thought it was irritating that the grip of my sidearm kept getting caught in the arm of my chair when I went to get up.
