...nah, but just about as realistic.

Still though, it is one of my favorite "daydream" sites. I would love to see this type of thinking influence future developement (sorry to get all advocacy-ish on ya, not my intent).

Sometimes I wonder if I would like it if everyone rode and all cars were gone. I'm not anti-car per se. I read a quote where it was said "Cars make good screw drivers, but everyone uses them as hammers." I think that sums up my feelings on the auto. Misuse. Overuse.

Then I imagine streets crowded with cyclist and China-like cyclotraffic jams. Or giant four wheeled "sport utility recumbents" powered by irrate soccer moms talking on cell phones bearing down on me. Eck. Maybe it is better the way it is. I dunno.

Cheers!
