    This happened in my home town. Lived there from birth until 4 months ago. I didn't know anyone that was in the videos but a ton of mutual friends.

    news about Paul Walker's death led me to find out that he was working on a remake of the French film District B13 named "Brick Mansions". meanwhile I hear that the Oldboy remake is bombing at the box office as well as getting poor reviews. stop doing this, hollywood.

    Yeah, that is ridiculous. I don't see any point in remaking District B13 and I really can't see how Paul Walker could've played Damien.

    Please someone explain this to me so my brain can stop circling itself in agony. The Greyhound from Akron to Pittsburgh, roundtrip, is $38 on a given day. This is pretty consistent, every time I go to Pittsburgh, that's what I pay. Now, the same trip from Cleveland to Pittsburgh, round trip, is $25, so $13 cheaper. The thing is, it's the same bus, and it originates in Cleveland, passes through Akron, then goes to Pittsburgh. So why am I paying more to go a shorter distance on the same bus?

    And follow up, can I pay for the Cleveland trip and just catch it from Akron?

    dunno about paying for cleveland. i come across the same thing on flights. last year after coachella i booked a flight from SD to Chicago with a layover in Detroit, and just bailed in Detroit and went home. It was about $100 cheaper than booking straight to detroit. I've been told they do that to keep you on the plane buying things.

    My guesses:

    It isn't just about distances, it's about all the logistics. The bus passes through Akron because some people get on/off in Akron. If they paid even less than the trip from Cleveland to Pittsburgh the small number of passengers would not be worthwhile. So that $13 (or more) extra is what is keeping the line through Akron at all. The bus goes out of its way (even if it always does that) to pick up you and other passengers in Akron.

    And if they do any sort of digital/scanned/electronic ticketing I would expect that if you bought a ticket to leave from Cleveland and they didn't register you boarding at Cleveland the ticket would be canceled.

    I don't know that they do digital scans, but they use to do visual and would not let you in if you were not at your boarding location/city.

    If were trying to go from Detroit to Chicago, though, this would not have worked. You had to be on at the beginning.

    Which means that while this likely won't work for going to Pittsburgh it should work for getting back. And lo and behold the Advance Purchase and Web-Only Fares are cheaper for Pitt to Cleveland than for Pitt to Akron (though of course some of the trips don't stop in Akron).

    Assuming it's the same as flying in/out of smaller airports. Think the fewer the number of passengers the more they pay to make up for that fact.

    Lol. No. Pricing strategies have nothing to do with the shit they sell on the airplane. The money they make from onboard sales is lunch money. Pricing strategies vary by airline, but the biggest factor is airport demand and which airlines have what routes into what airports.

    A direct flight from San Diego to Detroit is going to be more expensive than a flight from San Diego to Chicago with a stopover in Detroit; biggest reason is that very few airlines (I'd say there is probably only one) have a direct flight from SAN-DTW. Since business travelers make up a majority of the flying market and are willing to pay more for a direct flight since it's on a company dime, they can charge more. And on the flip, several airlines have flights between SAN-ORD, so they charge less so they can 'stay on the page' with their competitors.

    Smaller airports usually equal two things = less travelers and higher taxes.
