I know nothing of motorbikes, I see gifs of this all the time, how do you pick up a bike without using the throttle accidently? Is the only way to stop the engine first?
The one in the gif is a scooter not a motorcycle so it's automatic. Regular motorcycles have a manual gearbox so they won't launch like that unless you grab the throttle and dump the clutch at the same time.
If you are picking up a motorcycle it will usually either be turned off or in neutral, so revving the throttle isn't a big deal.
Once you find a general area you might be able to narrow it down a bit using information from here depending on how fussy you want to get. It's a bit later in parts than what you're looking for, but should give a general idea.
That site is incredible! Thanks for sharing
Geography is an incredibly powerful thing, shaping both climate and history. The sea makes England temperate, and the lack of the sea or any transverse mountains makes the US Midwest a frigid wind tunnel.
For England the Gulf Stream makes a much bigger impact than just being on the sea. The sea doesn't always make things temperate- look directly opposite the Atlantic from England and you will see that. Labrador is a frigid place...
Those are only on Svalbard though, which is a separate island group. Worrying about polar bears in mainland Norway would be like travelling to New York and worrying about Alaskan Grizzly Bears because they live in the same country.
I used to experience the same thing driving from Alberta to BC as a kid. Part of the Rockies are in Alberta but it always seemed like after crossing the border everything became more humid and lush. Even close to the border the forests in BC have ferns and other plants that you don't see on the other side.
I assumed the third question was asking about India's southernmost tip on the continent, but actually the answer was India's total southernmost point (in an island group owned by India).
On what latitude is this? The shadow is too short for winter. And the face teh dog does is one when it's warm and tries to cool down, and whay would it have to do that on the middle of a lake (can't have been running for the last few minutes) in the winter? Photoshopped?
It's a bad photoshop. The background is Moraine Lake, Alberta, no idea where the dog and canoe are.
OK wait. This makes it look like Minneapolis is an economic hub for like three Canadian provinces. Sure sure, looong distances, but it looks like all roads go to one place. Is Minneapolis-Winnipeg-Edmonton a corridor I never noticed before? Or does it just look that way on this particular map?
It's possible, but consider that the largest city of those three Canadian provinces (Calgary) isn't really inside that corridor. Also there are a lot more roads going east from Alberta because the eastern border is flat while the western border is the Rocky Mountains- it doesn't necessarily mean that most economic traffic is moving east, just more roads.
OP if you want a real answer from someone who has lived in the region, the commenters saying crime rates are the reason don't know what they're talking about. In North America waiting for someone is something we do mostly in winter in cold cities (if you were in Chicago recently I'm guessing it was pretty cold). We do it for anyone we give a ride to, cause getting locked out of your house in the extreme cold could be deadly.
Usually people/cities in areas that experience this weather have the infrastructure to deal with it. Minneapolis has skywalks, for example. More investment in preventable measures to ensure transit isn't delayed/stopped. People will wear insulated clothing and layers to protect the skin from frostbite but you certainly don't want to be outside too long. Life goes on
There never like guys don’t come to work it’s too cold today or cancel school for it?
Growing up in Canada I never had a snow day, although I've heard that in some parts of Canada they do cancel school for snow. If the temp fell below -15C then recess was cancelled for elementary schools, but school was still in session no matter how cold it was. The closest thing to a snow day I had was one time the school bus got stuck in the snow and I got to stay home.
