I like it, but it should be like I Am Legend, so the audience thinks he's the protagonist.

Oh, cool!  Glad that the second approach worked out!

Should I ask exactly what that entails?

At least, is this a good thing or the best of a bad one?

Hi, new guy!

If you like Taoism, you'll love The Chao Te Ching.

Plus, assholes like me only use Uber Black, as they're licensed livery vehicles with full insurance and regular professional driving jobs, only using Uber for side money. Every Uber horror story I've heard comes from people who used Uber X (what you'd most likely be). 

I'm just sad they dropped the entire Lady Stoneheart sub plot.

I think they are going to do that with Jon Snow and don't want 2 similar characters running around.

That makes very little sense, in that they would have massively different motivations.  I mean, sure, you don't want two ressurected people running around, but you can't just swap their stories.

I took a quick look at Breeze.

It costs $250 to join, and a $195 weekly lease.  You can return the care only after one month, with two week's notice.

So you're starting $1,420 in the hole.

Slate (I know, Slate) has an article seeing how much Uber drivers make, and came up with a rough estimate that after fees, gas, taxes, etc, many are making roughly $12 an hour.  And that's only the hours there was an actual customer in the car.  No fares, no money.  So let's say you're making roughly $480 a week, now down to $285 because of that weekly fee.  Now we're looking at about $7 an hour.  Also, not sure what state you're in, but a lot require you to have car insurance, so there's another cost.

I'm not telling you what to do, and my numbers might be slightly off, so I'd advise you to really track down the costs and see if you can suss out how busy the other drivers are, so you can estimate how much you'll be making at the end of the day.

and you are...?

Loving this rant. Offers solutions, not just bleak observations.

"We're here to help.  No need to decide now, we'll be back."

Hold on, that one makes complete sense.

That documentary depressed the hell out of me.
