    “What’s your name again?”
    “You can call me EZ”
    “That was my nickname in high school”
    Wow that was funny?

    1:46 The graph is incorrect or your numbers are incorrect. The graph shows the value dropping around 58-60% not 88%… Perhaps it’s just a simple representation to show us the value plummeting, but how hard would it have been to make an accurate graph?!?!?! They just didn’t expect anyone to do the math… Lazy Millennials!!!

    I’ve been a cabby for ten years… Where I’m from, the cars don’t have dividers between driver and passenger. I hope to God that the Daily Show is doing a bit here, and that its not being candid. I’ve had customers in the back seat who have slapped me, grabbed my beard in admiration, and even given me a shoulder massage, all of it without any kind of consent. I’ve also had trouble with people understanding that every button, knob, dial and lever (including the meter, and the stereo) are my work tools and shouldn’t be fiddled. I feel bad for EZ there, even if I cannot in any way condone his driving for Uber (Uber’s not really a problem in my neck of the woods, since our government saw Uber for the scam that it is, and forced them to comply with local regulations on transportation). Still, funny bit nontheless.

    There is a question no one has answered. Why don’t Uber and Lyft and whatever the fuck else have to fall the rules, regulations, and laws that cab companies do?

    I’m still unsure whether I need to have insurance on my Tesla if I’m wanting to use it as my Uber/Amazon side job robot. I’m aware most new vehicles have GPS tracking but I don’t think GPS is required on all vehicles, I know it isn’t required for all vehicles currently insured though.

    I’ve heard that sticking your kids in a New York cab is pretty safe. Because the cabbies will literally rip anyone who bothers them to shreds. Supposedly anyway. ?
