Well, just to go with the electricity theme, check out this catenary action.

They don't fit the low floor trams with accessibility lifts here, since they were found to be hopelessly unreliable. So they want an essentially unbroken surface from low floor tram to platform, but in practice that's damn hard to achieve, so PEOPLE IN WHEELCHAIRS DON'T RIDE THE FUCKING TRAMS ANYWAY. They ride the trains, where the train stops long enough for the driver to easily get out a ramp so they can hop on.

I agree with it too, but I have to say that in the last year and a half I've seen the wheelchair lifts on the bus used.....never. I've only seen one person in a wheelchair want to get onto a bus I was on, but we drove past them (because the bus was full - would have gone past anyone waiting at the stop).

i think i might go before i get kicked out, for a change. i have to cook for myself today, which is a fine change (i love cooking) if i can find ingredients i like in the house.

yesterday we had whole fried fish, she suggested i have those a 2nd time, no thanks, too much salt, friedness, and fish-head-ness, not to mention no microwave.

Trams on Collins Street at the intersection with King. An A class in the foreground, and its articulated cousin, the B2 class, in the background.
