Do you have driver's license? What car do you drive? I got my driver's license 2 years ago, it was a terrible struggle to get it during a the Covid-shutdown, but it was one of the best decesions of my life. It really improved my situation and helped a lot with my depression, gave me massive freedom to be able to drive wherever/whenever I wanted to go, without my parents.

I'm a poor wagie so I could only afford an old Open Astra, but it does the trick perfectly and cheep to maintain.

I have my license, had since I was 16 I think. Parents wanted me to get it ASAP so I could drive myself to school. I don't necessarily own my own car but I usually drive a prius.

Being able to drive is great though, I pity the wizards who can't. I mean I guess it doesn't matter for the hikkis at all but for those that go outside it's indispensable.

My grandmother died and now I use her car even though my Dad technically owns it. Still doesn't have 50k miles on it yet despite it being built in the 90s because I hate driving so much. The alternator just failed recently and I had to pay $800 to get it fixed. I think my dad also applied for an extension to the emissions testing and then I just never went so I have been racking up fees.

Very true I used to pull over because I'd have panic attacks. I would also show up 1/2 hour or more late to appointments because I didn't know where to go, even when I had GPS. It's only in the last few years after driving for 12 that I've begun to pay attention to street names. So now I at least won't get lost in my own city, but back when I started driving it sometimes took me hours in what should have been a 20 minute car ride. I still struggle sometimes being an aggressive driver, but I'm way better and less anxious than I was even 5 years ago.

I don't have a license wizzie, and frankly if im being honest the thought of being behind the vehicle of a car is scary. i dont believe i have the decision making or consistent aptitude to be safe on the road. i freak out if i have to make choices too fast. even crossing the road is hard for me.

Unless you need to go places very often it's not even that expensive as well if you do the math, owning a car will cost you way more than taking a cab here and there.

I also can't stand public transport, I hate waiting for a train or bus and then being in that shit with a bunch of normies. Theres also a higher chance of getting into weird or dangerous situations at bus stops and train stations, especially at night and on weekends unless you live in a rural area.

I got the license back in high school, have owned cars every now and then but it's not affordable.

I know there was an attempt to scare off "autists" from driving, telling us we can't do anything right just like everything else. I managed fine but I've learned to be paranoid about the assholes they have teaching drivers' ed.
And I'm a failure at most things, was told I'd never be able to do anything like every other autist, but driving is really easy once you get the hang of it. If you never get that crucial practice it is harder though. When parents refuse to do that, it's because they hate you and want to cripple you, tell you you're worthless. I was fortunate that my mother at least refrained from doing that, even though she did a whole lot else to abuse me and tell me I could never leave.
Basically if you can play vidya reasonably well and you don't have any physical disabilities or seizures, you can drive. Being a cautious driver is not a bad thing. You'll encounter assholes on the road every now and then, maybe even every day in some cities, but you have to focus on you and not let other peoples' shit get to you. The worst are the ones who want to ride on your tail and don't keep braking distance, the way you would be taught in any competent drivers' ed course. If you just barely get your driving hours and still feel a lack of confidence, yet get a car, consider test driving around the block or quiet neighborhoods to get a feel for it, and stay in local traffic for a while. Highway can be somewhat nervous when dealing with merges and the high speed, since you can't stop without pulling over, and if you have to do that, it can be annoying to build up speed to merge back on.

I think now you might be able to get some computer software and pedals to resemble brake/gas and a steering wheel. It's not perfect and I don't know any good driving sim software offhand, but part of drivers' ed would be a simulator where you are to mimic the actions of a driver on TV. That can prepare you for some situations you would encounter on the road.

Worst part of cars is how often they break down and the cost of repairs if you don't know anyone.

>>194013
That's odd. Usually if you have the money, dealers want to sell to anyone so long as they have a license. They're not going to ask about your driving history or psych history, but maybe in some hell states they're enforcing the ban on autists being allowed to drive (or participate in society at all).

Cars are good but what wizzies should stay away from is using their bikes on the road.

I was coming home one night from a 12 hour shift and a supermarket shop. I was tired as shit and merging onto the one way, the last thought I had before my accident was "man I'm fucking tired" and I took out a cyclist. I dragged him across the one way with my car and threw him into the gutter, blood was pouring out of his head. He was taken away in an ambulance.

I had to pay a $75 fine for reckless driving and the third party insurance premium, that was it. The third party insurance jewed him out of a payout by valuing his $4,000 custom road bike at less than a thousand dollars. I fucked him up completely and it just cost me chump change.

Car drivers can fuck you up and ruin your life, and suffer no consequences. I doubt it'd have been any different if I crippled him for life instead of seriously injuring him.

Bikes shouldn't even be allowed on the road. You know ancient roman roads were designed so that horse-drawn cart traffic ran in the middle and the outside of the road was reserved from pedestrian traffic. It was often physically difficult for the pedestrians to accidentally end up among cart traffic due to there being raised barriers. There were also bridges for the pedestrians that went over the cart traffic so they never had to cross the roads.

The romans figured this all out 1000s of years ago because it was common sense that people would get hurt if you had slow-moving traffic among fast moving traffic. Today our road systems are a cluster-fuck just about every where you go. Cyclist neckbeards riding on inch-wide lines with ditches or mountainous drop-offs on one side and fast moving cars on the other. Then they are so incredulously surprised when something happens. All the while you have random people that may wander onto the roads at any time. Much like an unthinking, dumb fucking animal.

It's really incredible how being car-less at a young age puts you are a major disadvantage to everyone who does.

Without a car, you basically can't really get a job or go anywhere. You have no freedom at all.

I guess it depends on the distance. If you want to travel within a city itself, public transport is fine. If you have to travel a long distance, I'd defenitely prefer going by car.

In Europe, it's common for people to live in a rural area but work in a major city that's much farther away. Let's say, 40+ miles. That means sitting in a completely packed train for 2 hours every day.

I see a lot of hate for crypto online and reading it its never anything that shows an understanding of the problems the industry are addressing nor how the tech works. I see many people say that it's just 'technobabble' dressing up various scams. But all this really means to me is the author went into the field as an outsider, confronted terminology they didn't understand, and then dismissed it as 'technobabble.' It would be like if I randomly showed up at an astrobiology conference and started claiming it was all bullshit whenever I heard anything that wasn't directed for laymen.

There is more to the blockchain industry than meets the eye. But if you're the kind of person to make out that anyone involved is a scammer or a mark to feel superior in your ignorance then you're never going to know shit about it. You don't have to invest in any of the tech to make money from it, either. You can build something and make money from it that way. Or work for one of the companies in the industry. This is a much safer way to make money than trading.

I think if you're a smart person you would be really interested in the deeper ideas in the space. They explore a new approach for designing systems on a technological level with added security properties. They propose a way to store and create value that doesn't require humans to regulate it and which has never been done before. There are layers and layers of insane impact to the tech that insect an multiple fields. It's just absurd to think that this all came about in a little over a decade. We have technology now that the industry funded that didn't exist back then. Like innovations in zero-knowledge proofs which have profound potential for privacy, cryptography, and technology. I don't think anyone understands the full details of all these new things but you can still get a sense of what it means if you put in the effort.

I know posting only one or two sentences is going to kill me one day if I keep it up, but I don't "do crypto". I invest in Bitcoin, Ethereum, Chainlink, and Monero instead of cash. I do this instead of putting money into savings, ie investing in fiat, because instead of losing 2.7% reliably each year, my checking account depreciates in value by over TEN FUCKING PERCENT ANNUALLY AND COUNTING. I don't have enough money or time to buy gold or silver each month, it wouldn't be worth my time to learn to sell on ebay for a fair price when it's time to transfer that value to a functioning vehicle.

Flinging shit at a man without even a name or face on the dark web will do little to remedy your lack of White children or success; worldly or even otherworldly.
>tldr
Normies treat e-currency like gambling, and that affects my investments no differently than lottery users affect the S&P500. you still fall for that crap

This only happens in that shithole called the US, in the rest of the world public transport is decent enough and most things aren't hundreds of KMs away.

Driving manual is hard. I hate it but most cars are manual in my country, including the car my parents gave me. As soon as I have enough money, I'm getting an automatic vehicle.

What makes you think that? I finally got my car back on the road the other day after using nothing but public transport for the past couple years, and I'm not even in some dense urban situation.

Nice having a car again now that I do more than occasionally go to a shopping center or downtown to the government buildings, and not having to worry about sunday/holiday schedules and possibly getting stranded somewhere.
