  1. The Transportation and Mass Transit Megathread

    Bullsh*t and (often racist) scare tactics. That's all that ilk has got on so many issues. Dishonesty is about as much a part of the human experience as breathing, and had probably been around almost as long. But never before in human history have so many otherwise intelligent people been so wrapped up in creating completely alternate realities just to make themselves feel more comfortable. It's dangerous, and it needs to stop.

    What's the Soar Adventure Tower?
  3. West End/Mid Town/Music Row/Vandy Projects

    I know it isn't a popular building here, but I, for one, am glad they are keeping it the way it is, in all it's quirky odd-ball glory.

    In terms of what... music that is produced in Nashville? The live music scene? Something else?

    Yeah, that one stung... although we still have two chances to close it out, the pressure is decidedly on us now... I mean, it always was, but especially now that the possibility of an upset is more present... I must admit, I had my concerns about how the Preds would perform this postseason as the team with the target on their back. They're used to being the scrappy underdog that everyone underestimates that has to fight and claw for every win... now the Avalanche have kind of taken on that role and it seems to have thrown the Preds for a bit of a loop. Hopefully they shake it off for game 6!

    Yes, I wish Mr. Yarbro's words could be spread far and wide. There is a great deal of wisdom to be found in them. Sadly, I suspect that a great many Nashvilians would read that and still somehow manage to have the singular thought: 'If it ain't gonna make it easier for me to speed my F350 down the highway, then what the hell good is it?'

    Yeah, it seems odd that there wouldn't be an explanation anywhere. Maybe it's somehow amplifying the otherwise inaudible noises of the water hitting the base of the bridge somehow? I don't know. It's cool, but it does seem odd as a permanent feature of a prominent Nashville landmark. It would make more sense as it's own attraction tucked away somewhere that you had to make a point to go see. I actually encountered something very similar over the summer when I was on holiday in Zadar, Croatia. Along the sea wall there they have a permanent art installation called the "Sea Organ" in which notches are somehow carved into the underside of a series of steps, which make different notes as the waves of the Adriatic crash into them. It's hauntingly beautiful, but sort of tucked away from everything else. Here it is below:

    Is this what you're talking about?

    "Paid for by Americans for Prosperity" AKA The Koch Brothers.

    That's true, but I've never really understood the argument that they should be profitable given the fact that mass transit systems fall into the category of municipal infrastructure. I mean, nobody would ever expect cities to make money off of public schools or fire departments or sewer systems, so why the expectation for mass transit? Are they assuming that because there is a small fee to use it that the intent is for it to operate like a business? It just makes no sense to me.

    We gotta make sure we shore up that duck vote too!
  12. The Transportation and Mass Transit Megathread

    Nice! Looking forward to hearing about the end result! Sounds like an amazing meal is in the works!
  13. The Transportation and Mass Transit Megathread

    That is definitely an encouraging sign. You and Neigeville are right that myself and others are jumping the gun with our pessimism. We will just have to wait and see, I guess! Btw, the only time in my life I purchased a whole duck, I got it in Chinatown, and they were ample there. I know Nashville doesnt have a Chinatown, but surely there is an 'Asian' market somewhere that would have a butcher shop. Have you checked K&M world market?

    Hmmm... strange. I dont recall hearing anything about it, but nice grab for Charlotte!

    I am so sick of the willfully ignorant among us setting us all back decades upon decades simply because they are either too lazy or too stubborn to do five minutes of research about a given subject on their smartphones while they watch Real Housewives in their underwear. This is the information age for gods sake. One does not require an Ivy League education to have access to most knowledge available to the human race. Unless you are very poor, or disabled or perhaps very elderly or very young, Americans can no longer use a "lack of access" as an excuse for a lack of knowledge. When it comes to most subjects, if you don't know something, it is because you do not, for whatever reason, want to know it. And that's perfectly fine, so long as you don't then insist on forming opinions and making decisions and casting votes that affect us all, about that which you refuse to even attempt to understand. Unfortunately, that seems to be what is taking place here, based on the first hand experiences you are all having. We won't always come to the same conclusions as our peers even after the facts are examined, and that's okay. I'd even say it is a positive thing in most instances. However, we all have a responsibility both to ourselves and to each other to, at the very least, stay as grounded in reality as possible. What a shame it would be if this transit plan failed to pass because too many people chose to shirk that responsibility.
