Hehe... Yah. But yer "competing" w/a half-dead old guy who's back from the dead and w/"too much time on his hands", desperate to change the future to leave this world a better place for future generations. (Among my ancestors, folks that helped start the German "Kinter Garten" in local schools... and was suggesting that women should have the right to vote in elections.)

Dude, that's what makes you so unbeatable.

So there was this proposed 'Contest' for those considered proficient forecasters. Apparently they were forecasting an inevitable winner in a rather flattering way when the government analysts declined to compete against a certain "Underemployed news junkie. . . ."

^^ Hehe... "proficient forecasters"... It's easy when you know how... ;) Sadly, in human history, "things" tend to "break down"... like the "united states" in north america... the "united" kingdom in Europe... the "Roman Empire"... history has a habit of repeating itself where the only thing "constant" is change. ;) And today/currently I suspect humans have a "problem" with urban transportation. ("Urban" ie living in crowded spaces, like more than half of human population...)

Solution? Shrink the size of vehicles. :lol:

EVer notice the percentage of vehicles going by with one operator ("driver", "rider", etc) with one or more empty seats? Lots of (empty) cargo space? Large and heavy... requiring lots of energy to accelerate... and most still burning fossil remains to exhaust poisonous "greenhouse" gases?

Watts wrong with this picture? :lol:
