Yeah motorcycles are cool and all, but I have zero desire to ride one and I'll definitely never buy one. Russian roulette on two wheels imo.

Stores are cheap and don't want to get the hardware to read chips. They're also afraid of confusing customers (I'm serious).
Gas in California urban areas is some of the most expensive in the country, but still cheaper than Europe.
There are a lot of homeless people in SF and many other states and cities ship their homeless people over here because we have "better" support systems for homeless and mental health.
It's funny because in 2 or 3 of the self-service gas stations I couldn't use my european debit card (due to using swipe + post code verification, it seems it expects US post codes only so as soon as I entered my local postcode the machine said "see cashier") and the first time it happened I went to talk to the cashier and she told me how much I wanted to take from my card so since I wanted a full tank I did a quick calculation: here the most I have paid for a refill was around 70 euro (I think my car has a 55 litre tank, 14 gallons according to Google) so I thought "well that's about $80" so I said $80. She looked over my shoulder and said "is that Toyota (a Corolla) your car?". I said yes and she laughed, saying that something like $30 or $40 would be more than enough, and it definitely was.Quote:
Yes I've seen some of those, it's a stupid reasoning. A rule is that you must use the rightmost lane if available. So yeah, in order to try to "enforce" a rule upon you they're breaking another rule (for which you can get a ticket). Makes a lot of sense.
In any case I hardly saw any speeding at all, and when I saw it it was not really serious. And I did lots of miles on those 11 days.Quote:
I'm from Spain. Here we have this:
The US has this (or at least San Francisco):
It's not fair.
Same goes for regular trucks. The american ones with their elongated "noses" (don't know the right term in English) are beautiful, especially if they have those exhaust "horns".
Most of the european trucks have flat noses and the cabin looks like a cube, basically.post #10265 of 139696/15/16 at 1:37pmpost #10266 of 139696/15/16 at 2:30pmQuote:

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)Just came back from my first trip to the US. In 11 days I visited Los Angeles, Palm Springs, Grand Canyon, Las Vegas, Sequoia National Park, Yosemite and San Francisco, all by car, so pretty hectic.
- The beauty of the three national parks I visited is astonishing. Paying $30 to access each one is well worth it and I hope the money goes mainly to preserve them. Unfortunately we didn't have time to visit Death Valley.
- Didn't care much for the cities (but this was even before going, I wanted to see mainly the national parks). I did like SF much better than LA, though (sorry LA people), but in 2 or 3 days at most it's hard to tell. Tons of homeless people in both cities, in every corner, I was shocked. Las Vegas represents everything I don't like (night life, gambling, etc.) but it's bizarre so definitely an experience. Palm Springs is quite photogenic but I wonder why anyone would want to live there, especially considering that it must be quite expensive. My phone said it was 45ºC when I was there (113ºF), by the way.
- Despite the intimidating size of most cars (America really loves its huge pick ups), drivers are way more respectful than what I'm used to (try driving in southern Europe, especially Italy...). No tailgatting, racing (except for a couple of assholes near Yosemite), attention whores revving up (god, so many of those over here with their shitty cars, it's always shitty cars...), hands on the horn all the time... The only thing that struck me as wrong was people constantly overtaking on the right lanes due to other drivers refusing to move to the right, is that allowed there? It does happen in larger cities here as well, though. Also, I had to Google how to deal with 4 way stops as we don't have those over here (it's all roundabouts). Ah, american lorries are beautiful in general, firefighter ones in particular. Loved the cheap gas prices too, especially since I had to fill the tank multiple times.
- Tips are a nightmare for someone not used to them. I knew I was supposed to tip between 15 and 20% but I had no idea how to do it when paying by card, and I actually had to ask (you know, they bring you the bill, you give them your card, they swipe it, then you get a receipt where you specify the tip and total and then sign it). And BTW, what's up with still using magnetic band + signature everywhere instead of the chip + pincode? Also I kept forgetting the sales tax. I don't know why it's not included in the prices at the stores, like VAT here.
- Didn't really went to clothing shops or anything, and wasn't looking for great food experiences either.
All in all, a wonderful experience.
Damn wish i knew you were in Sf, i'd grab a drink...
Also tipping is even more of a pain after many drinks.post #10270 of 139696/15/16 at 8:45pmQuote:Originally Posted by dieworkwear
