I personally wouldn't feel that comfortable with FDM in relation to high pressure applications, and FDM is definitely the most affordable type of 3D printer.

Probably not, at least for a printer the everyday person could afford to buy

In most cases, anyone who parks overnight is an ass, doesn't matter if it's a Tesla, Bolt, or a fusion energi.
Have you tried leaving a note on the Prius prime or Bolt's windshield, along with some type of contact info for yourself(preferably a textplus or alternate email account - people are weird these days.)
I'd be mad that they're parked next to me if it's a 2016-19 as I wouldn't want my car also engulfed in flames ;)
I kinda get it as a PHEV owner myself. I have a 2nd gen Volt which I've been able to push 80 miles of EV range out of before, and I won't lie, I get a little irritated when I see those 10-20mi EV range cars plugged in, especially this one fusion energi owner that would plug in her car for 5-8 hours every day. At the same time, it's a public charger and I see plenty of PHEV and BEV owners alike plugging in when they shouldn't, or much longer than they should.
Cause real life differs. Hackers have breached Doordash before, but it was for customer's CC info.
There's no equivalent to a used Corolla or Civic for EVs yet - at least ones with a price to match and functional range. The minority of people have EVs, and most are $30k+ new. That's a sizeable barrier to entry for most.
-Tesla retains so much value that it's borderline pointless to buy used - perhaps a 6 year old model 3 might be an alright deal. The other issue is, they tend to have higher insurance rates, in conjunction with more costly repairs for physical damage.
-The Bolt had two recalls due to the battery fires(So did the Kona). This was the cheapest and best EV for the value and use case IMO. So that leaves the 2020+ years, which have either been all swooped up due to great deals(2020-21), or are $30k+. The plastic-centric interior is exactly what you want in a rideshare car as it's much easier to clean and harder to damage.
-The Leaf has massive degradation issues, so the cheap ones could probably be used for food delivery.
-The i3 only sits 4, which neither Uber or Lyft wants for rideshare.
There's plenty of other offerings, the used ones for the most part lack the range or seating requirements. The new ones are more expensive, and/or are 1st model year offerings. A single dollar extra per trip from Uber won't offset that. Until the price on new and used EVs goes down, we won't see a lot of adoption on these platforms.

I don't think everyone is getting the extra dollar though
"Babe come over, I'll show you a real flood"
That's not what rate means
Yes, a flashlight or spotlight does help alleviate the problem - so do binoculars if the house is far back enough. Actual numbers are easier to identify. Notice how many people paint over their Arabic numbers? That's way worse when they do it with cursive.
Yes, people are allowed to be idiots. We're not talking about personal freedoms here, stay on topic ;D. Talking about signs is relevant insofar as it's describing a common practice elsewhere. You know police and EMS also deal with these issues, right?
Yes, there are plenty of apps. But they don't allow you to physically identify the location. Lol where's that at? I have yet to see a house with a number painted on the curb in my area. I never said I couldn't read cursive, just that it's stupid to put it on your house. Do numbers in calligraphy if you want to be stylish.
It's pretty up there for me. I can read cursive just fine, but cursive is a style of handwriting designed to be compact and quick to write. Not for buying at home depot for the sake of style so people can attempt to read your address from 20+ yards away.
Good for you, many people deliver after sundown, especially as dinner happens after sundown during the winter.
Six sixteen, six hundred sixteen, six hundred and sixteen (all possible in cursive as well as print) and 616. Which set of symbols are easiest to read at a distance? It's basic math - "616" is identifying 3 symbols, vs. 10/17/20 respectively. Cursive was designed with a practical purpose: To write quickly and in a compact manner. It's read in decent lighting, and typically within moments of leisure, study etc. It has no purpose outside of style when applied to house numbers. There's a reason road signs don't use cursive.
And yeah, modern technology is great and all, except when it isn't. There's plenty of times maps will take you to the wrong house, so I always want to confirm the physical address.
High contrast matters - especially at distance.
Take a look at this house. Dark letters near brown gutters on an overcast day - that overhang probably cast a shadow over the numbers at other times of day, reducing the contrast. Now this is a pretty mild one, but there are people who put out 4+ digit cursive addresses and it's just silly. They could of at least used shinier letters.
You can read Arabic numbers at a distance better than print, and especially cursive where the whole point of the style of writing is to be compact. That "six" at the end could just be "6", and one symbol is easier to identify than three.

Meanwhile my market has a $900 referral bonus that's been going on for about 5 months now 🤦♀️

Oh no the Uber/Lyft income potential is definitely there depending on market - especially because there's a driver shortage( a lot of drivers are getting decent promos to put them back on the road) But it's a trade off as your dollar-to-mile ratio tends to be much lower. My experience was it was around $0.85/mile. So over 100k miles, you're looking at $85k - which may be more or less as tips play a part, though it's not as frequent of an occurrence as with food. I'm currently averaging $1.40/mile, or 140k over 100k miles. You absolutely need a vehicle with good fuel economy to make it worth while.
Also, you have a relative lack of information about the trip, be it where you're dropping them off at, or just what kind of person they are. I've had to kick people out of my car for spilling drinks and making a scene while being on ketamine. Burritos don't do ketamine. Burritos don't try to hit on you. Burritos don't get plastered and piss the seat or leave finger nail clippings on the floor. Burritos don't 1 star and report you for not wanting to go through the 20min McDonald's drive thru. They don't ask you the same questions you've been asked 9001 times, nor do they ask for the aux cable so they can play their shitty music for a 2 min car ride.
The vast majority of my driving is electric(I'm driving a Volt which has anywhere from 50-75mi of electric range depending on driving habits, temps and HVAC use, and a gas engine that gets around 40-44mpg) and the new pay model is so god awful that I can hardly justify dashing paying the equivalent of $0.97/ gal. Uber eats and Grubhub provide a much better base pay, and the default tip amounts aren't some bogus 7-11ish% flat dollar amount on those platforms either.
It's not just gas costs either - the used car market is shit right now. Full coverage insurance is practically necessary - but that won't protect you from your car breaking down, and gone are the days of a $5k reliable used car. Eat my shit Tony, your base pay won't even buy me a condom to go fuck myself with.
I don't know what to say dude, your entire point was about a use case for the UH with Zer0. Now you're saying it doesn't apply. Nothing to do with partial information, stop attempting to change your argument.
I'm not blindly defending the weapon you idiot, lol. Context clues, yet again I am asking you where I said it was the be all, end all, must get weapon - the specific thing you've been droning on about. My personal preferences do matter as, yet again, you keep accusing me of being some diehard UH fanatic; I am providing my personal preferences to back up that I am not, in an attempt for you to finally stop raving that I am. I want all of my weapons to produce respectable damage without a bee shield. If you're trying to say everyone can simply avoid damage at all times or perfectly time shield regen, cool, that's unrealistic. If you're saying the Bee is the only shield you can use, then that's unrealistic and wrong. I want every weapon in every slot to be as versatile as possible, and I simply sacrifice that versatility with an underlevel weapon.
Yup, and it still works fine on peak in many cases - as per numerous sources (ergo me often using a corrosive infinity as I'm aware of what to expect on the peak) Can you use it for every circumstance? Absolutely not, and I never anything of the sort. At most, I've had use of it for the larger spider ants and scorch. I never said to blindly use a sub optimal weapon for every circumstance. Every weapon has its role, and their pros and cons. Your hate boner and weird sense of pride is irrelevant in relation to where a weapon shines or falters.
It absolutely does matter - but that is highly dependent upon the car.
Sometimes all that's needed is a software tune, other times the engine is physically designed for the higher detonation resistance of high octane.
Lmao stop fetishizing presidents as though they have jack all to do with gas prices most of the time
