    Newer facilities and greater demand. If you can get more freight moved in one trip, go for it. IDK if the train cars that haul the box part have caught up with 53 footers or if they still do 40's for the most part.

    is there anything they could easily change? let's say by paying them properly or get rid of that nonsense that drivers are independent entrepeneurs (i chose that word deliberately)

    For rail transport - it's almost entirely containers now - ol' fashioned "Trailer-Train" (aka Piggy back) is just about extinct.
    Rail pretty uses international standard containers and while I believe there are some 53' containers, those are way outnumbered by 40-45' types.

    Easter dinner.

    I got one of those hard boiled egg cup sets for only $4. The eggs are a little misshapen but it does work as advertised, no peeling required. Below is one egg still in its cup, another tipped out, and one out and cut in half.

    1. storing and cleaning that thing is better that peeling eggs?
    2. as you posted that around easter, how do you dye them?
    3. how does it work, anyway?
    4. i wouldn't buy it if it was to be had for 30 cents

    I ordered a custom keyboard from a company in Taiwan and the tracking information showed it arriving in Los Angeles just minutes before it shipped from Taiwan.

    Thanks, but I am fine. I just meant everything I had assembled to add was dark shit.

    Some brighter shit has come in since then. Check for this shit for dealing with shit.

    I went out for a walk this afternoon and spotted this lovely little floof just chilling in the shade. She seemed to imply I could not pass until I gave her some pets.
