I'd prefer to use Curb, Flywheel, & other apps that leverage the extant cab infrastructure to hire rides instead of Uber, Lyft, Sidecar, etc. However, because cab infrastructure varies wildly between cities, so too does the quality of using these apps; calling up a cab on my phone and waiting twenty minutes is worse than feeling slightly conflicted about a rideshare. Where have you used Curb or Flywheel and had a good time? Better than with a rideshare? Worse?

When laying a concrete curb, does a rut need to be dug to sink part of the curb?
Back in 1996, Heather and I visited our friend Jason in Bourne End, northwest of London, and spent a few days in Lynton, in Devon. There was a funicular from Lynton to Lynmouth, and we used to take the train from Lynton down into town and wander around in search of scrumpy. As we got off the railway, at the mouth of the Lyn, we found ourselves on the west bank of the Lyn, and IIRC there was a building right about there with the best ever Victorian-latinate-lingo "please curb your dog" sign I've ever seen.

In Chicago, there is a street where everyone parks on the curb. Why is this done (why isn't the street just widened), and is it a popular practice anywhere else? [more inside]
