Written? Heck, there are instructional documentary videos on Youtube!

Here is my fav, started at the key 1:53, but the intro is worth watching also.

Urinal Rules - YouTube

DW thought I was kidding about some of these rules, but they must be adhered to!

On the bus route I ride, the seats are like urinals (or at least smell like them). And no, you don't use the one right next to where someone else is sitting. That is just rude and weird.

The same maximal spread rule applies to elevators too. If you want to freak someone out, stand next to them when there is still plenty of room in the elevator car.

I went 2 years without a car once. I remember feeling at times that those in cars were part of a privileged class. I think it depends if you have dependents and a lot of things to carry. More and more people seem to be lightening their loads, so to speak, and this tends to make a car-less life more liveable. I must say the lack of a car payment is nice, that's for sure!

This is one thing that I forget. I have young kids, so hoofing it a half mile or mile isn't as easy to do. And waiting on a bus with kids is less than appealing if you have an alternative (such as a car). I could get the kids where I needed to get them (caretaker's house while I'm working and to school for the most part), but it would take an extra hour or two every day.

Hopefully, driver-less cars will greatly reduce the need to drive within a generation. I suspect the early adopters of driver-less car services will be those without a driver's license, Zip car users, and the elderly.

There are so many advantages to driver-less cars that they are hard to list, but they may reorder how cities and homes are built within a couple of generations.
