BUSES ARE HORRIBLE. A student ticket is like $10.50 and you get 10 trips.

Oh! That sounds better than our regular 10-trip bus ticket, which costs €12.20 XD Around $15. No discounts! That's why I just go for the monthly pass unless I'm going to be out for weeks.

Wow, that's ridiculous. Are buses as unreliable in Spain as they are in Aus? Constantly late, if they even show up.

    Nobody uses the bus here, mostly because we have the T-Trains instead, and everyone just uses that or their cars.

    Oh no, here you know something is very wrong somewhere if they don't show up- the green ones at their scheduled times and the blue ones every 5-10 minutes depending on the time and the day. And there are over 300 lines crossing the city so chances are at least one is going to take you to where you want to go.

    Metro is faster mostly because of avoiding traffic lights and possible jams, though.

      Every time I go to Bristol it is like.. one trip is 1.90 quid : | Day pass is more worth it even though it is 4 pounds. If you gotta take a trip there and back somewhere it is about the same >_> craziness.

      Should just do what I do and teleport everywhere, it's so much cheaper and quicker.

        I'm so glad I've got a bus pass at Uni. Twice a day at least plus nights out, going into town, etc., I have to use busses and they're at least £1.10 a shot. Seems like not too much but it really adds up and since this place is massive there are always queues and stuff to get on busses and it's much quicker to just flash your bus pass than it is to get the right change and get the ticket and etc. Plus the drivers are always really grumpy lol.

            I'm so jealous of your car. Although driving around here would be a bit of a nightmare it'd still be easier.

                  I've always wanted a helicopter (no traffic!) or a chauffeur <3

                    The problem with a helicopter is that there are few places that you'd be able to park it... at least in heavily urbanised areas. If you're out in the country, then sure, it'd be wonderful! But I can't imagine having one near my house to go to work, even though it would be undoubtedly cool in the moment! :D

                      Yet sometimes you have a car, the the parking at the university is so expensive that you decide to bus there anyway as if you don't have a car... seriously those parking costs D:

                      Honestly where I live it would probably be easier to get a park for a helicopter than a car.

                        you wouldnt have to worry about people stealing your helicopter unless they wanted to kill themselves- then you can collect on the insurance whee!!!

                        Video game prices here in the US are pretty static. Console games cost at best $60 while handhelds are around $35.


                        Capcom, though, has been a prick to deal with as of late. Anyone hear of the special package deal it made with Resident Evil 6? You can get an exact replica of the jacket Leon wears in the game for $1300 bucks.


                        W.T.F.

                        EDIT: Awks, I was directed two pages back, for some reason...


                        I've never ridden a helicopter, for the record.

                        I've been in a helicopter before. Only once, though. I was seven-years old and my mother and I were on vacation in Colorado and while we were there my one request was that I get to ride in a helicopter (then called the whirly-woo) and so she fulfilled the request by taking me to a free-range helicopter rental place (you don't get to rent the vehicle but you can get flown up in one) I vaguely remember the experience, but it was pretty wild. Fun, nonetheless.

                          You be surprised =)
                          People steal construction equipments and bulldozers and other silliness all the time, and pretty sure that they won't have the licenses for it. Nothing stops some silly teenagers or insane guy from having a "chance of a lifetime" stealing a helicopter. For, they'll just have fun destroying it with a hammer or something.

                          ...unless you're Batman, then you can put a simple cover on a huge flying vehicle on the top of a skyscraper for half a year in times of complete anarchy, and it'll be completely safe.
