    Got an Uber last night. Guy had to drop 4 people off in 4 different places and he was a pretty cool guy, bumped some rap music for us. Threw him $5. Wasn't under my account though.

    My dad is all worried about Uber coming to the airport... pretty much would put him out of business.

    Yea he hasn't been making as much, and that's even with Uber being banned from HNL. If they are allowed to come to the airport, that's game over. I kinda feel bad because whenever I fly back to Omaha, I only use Uber now instead of calling a cab that's been waiting in line.


    Holloway!!!!! what a beautiful double 1-2 combo to drop Aldo and great transitions on the ground to maintain control

    That's rough. But what can I say, when it comes to supply and demand, convenience wins every time. Didn't know Uber was banned though.

    They aren't supposed to pickup passengers at HNL because another company has the contract. Some Uber/Lyft drivers have been cited for HNL pickups, but I've heard they are still doing it by meeting the passenger away from the baggage claim area.

    I'm all for excluding Uber and Lyft from HNL because AMPCO pays the state every month for the contract. In turn, taxi drivers who want the lucrative airport run have to pay AMPCO for every fare they get. Uber and Lyft pay nothing and is taking money from these taxi drivers' pockets. Furthermore, the taxi drivers queue up everyday waiting for a trip, sometimes waiting hours for a fare.

    Yup, 3 hours or so for a $35 fare to Waikiki.




    Anyone eat tortilla wraps? I'm cutting on 1800cals a day (almost 2 months at this point, 11 weeks total cutting) and even though it's a lot easier with my current routine, would like to change up ways to eat chicken breast.

    LMAO...I "unsubscribe" one of my spam e-mails, and I get another one from them notifying me that I'm unsubscribed.

    Why do I get the feeling this is not the end!

    I love reading the comments on HNN's facebook posts and seeing everyone rip current Hawaii gov't/politicians and largely supporting conservative views.

    i stay away from most news sources. cnn, salon, fox, breitbart etc - all trash. i read reuters and bbc and listen to npr.

    AP/Reuters/BBC are solid and as unbiased as they come these days.

    NPR is a mildly left lean but i mostly enjoy stuff like story corps, social science with shankar vedantam, and some of their music stories.

    Thanks for the heads up, Nick. I bought like 4 $200 cards I figured would be good for mining Etherium. Waited 3 months and sold them each for 400 bucks. Then today 6/15/17 Eth and BTC dropped like stones.
    Made me more money than the actual mining would have. lol
