    Uber Introduces a Time-ONLY Rate for Long-ish Multi-Stop Trips

    I once had this happen too a few years ago, A guy "chartered" my car for about an hour and half to run some errands. Thankfully, these were the days before Up Front Fares so every kilometer I drove got charged. He also didn't stay long at each stop and he even gave me a nice tip me too.

    Uber Introduces a Time-ONLY Rate for Long-ish Multi-Stop Trips

    Uber’s director of rider operations Niraj Patel also framed it as “an additional earnings opportunity for drivers as we move forward in this ‘new normal.’” Translation: You’ll be earning even less than before.

    The COVID-19 Coronavirus Thread

    Will life go back to normal? This is not the first time humanity has faced a pandemic...and it’s far from the worse. The Spanish flu had already taken more lives by this time in. And let us not forget the mother-of-all pandemics, The Black Death. Did life go back to normal after these...

    Recycling in General [Off Topic]

    I’m pretty sure I’m not the only one to chuck the empties into recycling. If they’re serious about encouraging people to bring the empties back, they need to raise the deposit on beer containers to 25 cents and the wine/liquor bottles to $1.

    I’m tempted to think that the Beer Store would prefer we not bother to bring the empties back; hence the pathetically low deposit amount.

    If I had that many bottles to go back, then yeah: I’d go. But I hardly drink enough to generate enough deposit return to make the effort worth my while

    The Duck Is Back!!! [OFF TOPIC]

    Oh I see; the inflatable duck was made in China. Got it. Better yet, they should just make @Speedy_Gonzales and @Konkort happy and setup an inflatable panda, since that’s where their unquestioning loyalties are

    The Duck Is Back!!! [OFF TOPIC]

    They couldn’t find an inflatable loon or beaver? (Canada’s national animals) Even an inflatable Canada Goose would have sufficed. What does a rubber duck have to do with Canada?

    What Are You Watching? [Television Thread]

    I watched Chernobyl too Actually, I thought it was pretty good! They managed to nail down the complex technicalities of a nuclear power plant quite accurately. Also the setting and CGI work was quite impressive considering that the film crew couldn’t go anywhere near the actual Chernobyl plant...

    My empties go straight to the recycling bin. At 10 cents a pop, why bother?

    Thoughts on China [Politics]

    I usually just speed-scroll past @Speedy_Gonzales and @Konkort posts on anything to do with COVID19 and China. Nothing worth reading from these two, folks; move along, now....

    You might as well be asking @Speedy_Gonzales and @Konkort to jump backways through flaming hoops while kissing their own butt. Ahhhh, ad-homonym

    Trudeau Thread [Politics]

    Implement that, and we don’t have a democracy anymore. At election time, you currently also have the choice of: ‘none of the above:’ the choice some people make when presented with a slew of candidates so sub par, they can’t decide who’s worse and are afraid of making the situation worse by...

    These are the same people who brought you the SNC-Lavalin scandal. Does anyone really expect them to do better?
