WTF ...201 [View all]

There was a rumor that between 1938 and 1950, officials at General Motors were buying up train and light rail systems in cities so that people would have to buy more cars. The only falsity in this theory turned out to be that it wasn't just GM that was in on this ploy, but several other companies, as well.



Its no wonder we don't have public transportation like every other developed country ...
