Question about bus scheduling: the vast majority of routes on the vast majority of systems run at less than 2/hour peak. As best I can tell >2/hour is done on lines so popular as to be candidates for running rail (eg: there's a 3/hour bus line that will be replaced by WMATA's silverline extension). What makes 2/hour a relatively hard limit/way more expensive?
I gave a set of 2020 headlines to the neural net GPT-3, whose training data cut off in October 2019.
Having never seen 2020, it tried to predict what headlines are next on the list.
COVID vaccine, false side effects, be ready for this news
"Specifically, if you take 10 million people and just wave your hand back and forth over their upper arms, in the next two months you would expect to see about 4,000 heart attacks. About 4,000 strokes. Over 9,000 new diagnoses of cancer. And about 14,000 of that ten million will die, out of usual all-causes mortality. No one would notice. That’s now many people die and get sick anyway.
But if you took those ten million people and gave them a new vaccine instead, there’s a real danger that those heart attacks, cancer diagnoses, and deaths will be attributed to the vaccine. I mean, if you reach a large enough population, you are literally going to have cases where someone gets the vaccine and drops dead the next day (just as they would have if they *didn’t* get the vaccine)."
