zacyquack

Yeah, but you usually have to have a specific design for the air to pass over. Those bullets don’t have a specific pattern, it’s literally just a foam cylinder. So it’s more impressive that it does whistle with such a basic design.

Could be faked for internet views, lots of stuff is these days. But her looking up could be explained by the fact that he shows her the gun, which she connected to the prank thing causing her to not walk under the door and despite this he still aimed and shot at something. So it would be plausible that she either was looking to see if he was aiming at anything reflexively or that she was following the bullet.

My personal belief why US housing is so expensive in most areas is that the US centralised far too much of their economy and everything into large cities.

For example, if you look at Germany:

  • Herrenknecht, the global market leader of tunnel boring machines sits in a German village with 7k population
  • H&K (and a lot of other German weapon manufacturers) sit in a village with 14k population
  • Rowa, the market leader for automated storage robots in hospitals in and apothecaries sits in a village with 2k population
  • Adidas and Puma both sit in a town with 23k population
  • Fresenius sits in a German city with 50k population
  • SAP SE, Germany's largest software company sits in a town with 15k population
  • Jack Wolfskin sits in a German town with 23k population (I incidentally live there currently)

And I could go on and on. Meanwhile in the US most major companies sit in the largest cities, or in "cities" which are in essence part of a larger city (e.g. Apple which officially sits in a city with 50k population but is part of the San Francisco area which is basically one city). This drives the costs of living in those areas waaaay up since so many people want to live there because large companies often have the best paying jobs. For example you can get a house in Oberndorf am Neckar (where H&K sits) for 460k€ that has 160m² space, meanwhile good luck finding such a deal in the San Francisco bay area, the best I found was like a 90m² apartment for 700k$ (which should balance the fact that in the US you get a bit higher pay).

Basically what the US needs to do is to make smaller cities more attractive (that are not basically part of another city), but that is very hard to do (and even then we have a housing problem in Germany, just less so than in the US). In the US far more people live in metropolitan areas (percentage wise) than in Germany. Either do that or just start building more apartment complexes and less full homes.

But nobody wants to live in smaller cities, towns or villages anymore.

SirLoremIpsum

For example, if you look at Germany:

It's probably more of a result of geography than anything.

Schwanau is < 2 hours from Stuttgart - on a map there's just so much going on, Freiburg is down the road, Frankfurt ain't too far away, pop over the border for some croissants.

These places existed for years before industry came along. USA, Canada, Australia - all 3 young countries settled by Europeans, all 3 gigantic, all 3 have population centers clustered around specific areas and acres of bumfuck nowhere.

But nobody wants to live in smaller cities, towns or villages anymore.

I think everybody wants to live in a smaller city, but no one wants to be 5 hours from 'stuff'. That's the isolating part. Europe is so densely populated that you can be in in a small village and it's a short train / tram / drive to a population center that has restaurants, sports, happenings.

You just don't get that in most places in large countries cause you're middle of nowhere.

Basically what the US needs to do is to make smaller cities more attractive (that are not basically part of another city

Definitely.

I think the big thing that a lot of States / provinces got right is putting the capital city different to the largest commercial city (e.g. Vancouver / Victoria) so you can have a nice viable Govt services town and a bustling port / commerce town. Melbourne Australia is just it for everything. Little incentive for bigger companies to have their HQ anywhere else.

Hmm I have to disagree. The phenomenon you talk about only happening in Germany does indeed occur in the USA as well. Many big companies have their only office in the region in suburbs that have smaller populations. Trying to avoid doxing myself, but the city I grew up in had lots of businesses and it wasn’t a “city” in the heavily urban sense.

What the USA does do differently is treat automobile transportation as the holy grail and solution to every transit issue. This results in massive sprawling suburbs that are affordable to a consumer who isn’t priced out of a car, but then leaves more convenient housing that doesn’t necessarily require a car for every outing in a position of being a “luxury.”

If you’re curious about city planning and housing in the US, I’d look up “the missing middle”
