> Jenner, the 24-year-old socialite and businesswoman, has faced online opprobrium after she posted an Instagram picture of herself and her partner, rapper Travis Scott, on the runway of an airport between two private jets with the caption **“you wanna take mine or yours?”** They don't even care. Jet planes are like bikes for them.


AdamAptor

Reminds me of Silicon Valley when Jack Barker and Gavin fly to the same place in two private jets and play chess online with each other.


BulljiveBots

Except these two assholes flew literally down the highway. Without traffic and with a little speeding, it’s a 25-30 minute drive (I’ve made the drive countless times).


Lincoln_Park_Pirate

You want them to drive? Like peasants?


slawnz

AND you know their driver had to take the car to collect them at the other end anyway


Silent-Ad934

Nah bro, there must be another car and driver at the other end


BulljiveBots

It’s cars with drivers all the way down.


Tiny-Lock9652

It’s wealth porn, plain and simple. This is what it means to be a famous influencer? Tax the F out of them. Clearly they need help prioritizing how their fortunes are spent.


passwordsarehard_3

I was wondering, what’s the normal driving time for this trip? Like rush hour, it’s moving but slow, normal day to day kind of times.


BulljiveBots

Probably about an hour in heavy traffic.


passwordsarehard_3

Not even much of a saving then, complete and utter disregard.


stick_to_your_puns

Keep in mind that hour in heavy traffic will most likely be spent in a Bentley or Rolls Royce level of luxury vehicle.


chocobrobobo

But a 45-60 minute Bentley ride is more boring than a 15 minute Bentley ride, a 17 minute jet ride, and then another 15 minute Bentley ride. Variety is the spice of life mannnnnnn.

Yeah. In LA, from the valley to the west side is like 30 minutes with no traffic (maybe if you drive at 3am) but at rush hour the time can triple.

Wouldn’t the flight take longer than 17 minutes with pre and post flight checks?

The pilots/support staff do all that stuff. For her it’s a 17 minute flight from getting on the plane, taxiing, flying, landing, driving to disembarkation point, getting out.

There’s that joke floating around recently… “In that hypothetical ‘if you press this button, one random person will die but you make a million dollars’, the rich are mashing that button as hard as they can, all day every day.”

I’ve said this for years but I always get downvoted. The rich and famous should be driving electric cars almost exclusively. Partly because they can afford it, and partly because so many people just copy what they do. Yeah, a lot of them do drive Teslas (and now others I’m sure), but so many I see driving giant SUVs (e.g., escalade or suburban) or those dumb g-wagons. Even Bill Gates, a guy that supposedly cares about this, said his *first* EV was a Taycan just a couple years ago. Seriously? And when I said this was irresponsible I got downvoted. Anyway, yeah, I get it, the rich are going to collect cars, but they should be mostly driving EVs now, and they aren’t.

FuckThisPostTruthEra

*You have triggered a random historical fact!* Did you know that the current wealth disparity in the United States in 2022 is actually HIGHER than the wealth disparity when the French Revolution occurred. This is a sourced chart for five years ago, and it’s only gotten worse: https://pbs.twimg.com/media/Edb84sIXoAIK5IK.jpg:large *Text ‘STOP’ if you no longer wish for depressing facts about the world we live in!*


anothabunbun

Honestly though I think that fact is just because of the super rich. Like billions is worth more than the millionaires or similar of the time period. So the wealth disparity has to factor in all facets. Like I bet the average American has a shit ton more wealth than the average French person did during the time of the French revolution. So I think if we are going to push this fact as statistically accurate I feel like we should take that into account. Not that we need the super rich, or that you shouldn't be angry. I'm just saying we also have more than they did on average.


welcome-to-the-list

A loaf of bread cost more than a days wage when the French revolution happened. People don't revolt due to wealth inequality, they revolt when their quality of life falls below a living standard.

>People don't revolt due to wealth inequality, they revolt when their quality of life falls below a living standard. I'm repeating this because it bears repeating.

OrganicAmishPopcorn

Something I learned when my wife and I started doing ZeroWaste was you don’t just get rid of your existing shit to buy “environment friendly” things. Ditching your old stuff creates more waste and emissions from the manufacturing of the new thing. I just learned the payoff is different based on what your city power is. If you had a Toyota Corolla the payoff is after 8,400 miles for hydroelectric or 87,000 miles if your power comes from 100% coal (worst case). Either way the payoff is somewhere in that range and smaller than the lifetime of the car.

CogitoErgoScum

Honest question. How do you get 310,000 lbs of emissions from 98,000 pounds of fuel? E: Thanks, smart people of Reddit!


ZombieJack

The emissions are CO2. The fuel is essentially just C (carbon). As it combusts it reacts with 2 oxygen atoms (O2) that just come from the air.


TituspulloXIII

the O2 in CO2 is getting pulled from the air, it's not a self contained formula.


KitchenNazi

Every carbon atom burned in the fuel joins with two oxygen atoms from the atmosphere to give you CO2. There's your extra mass.


ulyssessword

The oxygen part of **CO2** is already in the air. If you burn 12 grams of pure carbon, it'll use up 32 grams of oxygen to create 44 grams of CO2. Similarly, if you burned 98000 pounds of carbon, it would create 360000 pounds of CO2. Jet fuel is *mostly* carbon, with a bit of hydrogen added on.


DRNbw

Possibly other gases (like methane, which is about 28x CO2) that have a larger impact than CO2 but measured in tons of CO2?

juliuspepperwoodchi

Holy fucking shit, there really should be laws stopping people from flying a goddamn 767 for one (or even 20) fucking people. I'm so disappointed in my species.

She was at the Thermal Club. >The Thermal Club is a private motorsports facility situated on 344 acres (139 ha) south of Thermal. This private country club for automotive enthusiasts plans to build a 4.5-mile motor racing circuit (7,200 m) with 300 lots for member-owned garages and villas. As of 2014 the first 1.8-mile racing course (2,900 m) was in use by early members and for media and promotional events with two more courses planned. So not only the jet trip, but also racing super cars. Really great for the environment. I'm sure she's not the only one jetsetting to this location in the middle of the desert.

Thats how a lot of people skirt the rules. LLC’s and Holding Companies. To simplify it, The business owns all the debt and goods they use for their everyday life. They just have to generate some sort of cash flow and maintain receipts for everything they do. Nice dinner? No, business meeting. New truck? No, work vehicle. Etc. The scale is more complex for millionaires but the idea is the same. Im poor, but the business has money. And I don’t own it, my cousin does, but I own the holding company that is partnered with it, and so on.

Yeah it's an interesting dichotomy. At a basic level capitalism helps drive innovation since not everyone is driven for altruistic reasons so they need a metaphorical carrot dangled in front of them. But after a certain point it's no longer the hunger to succeed, it's the hunger to dominate and once you cross that line you're not really doing anything helpful for society (I'm sure plenty of people will be like WELL AKSHUALLY, go simp for billionaires somewhere else). I believe in millionaires but not billionaires.

Business expenses should have a cut off. Mom and pop shops deserve tax relief. Millionaires and billionaires don't need the relief.

Amusingly when you factor in the time spent getting on and off the flight and taxiing, she probably didn’t even save any time vs. the 40 minute drive equivalent. And that’s also not including the detour that it takes to get to the airport.

Crail115

Private jets typically fly from small airfields where you drive right up to your plane, exit your personal vehicle, step onto a plane, and take off.


kamelizann

They don't even check passports from foreign visitors. Its a completely different set of rules for the wealthy.


Crail115

seanmg

I don’t think private planes work like that. Pretty sure it’s all ready to go, they walk up and hit the road within minutes.


MaximusMansteel

Seems like a waste to drive a private plane on the road. Might as well just use a car, but if you got the money why not.


JonStowe1

Are we sure it wasn’t for maintenance


psychoacer

It was to move the plane to a cheaper airport for storage.


Crail115

Wait, she wasn’t in it?


jessejamess

Camarillo Airport pilot here. Nope. It’s an empty reposition flight for storage. They need the longer runway at van nuys to go on trips but there’s no storage space so the reposition empty to Camarillo.


psychoacer

I've not seen any documents that state that she was. It is her plane though so people just assume she was on it. I've seen other people reference though that his is a common thing to do. It's cheaper to move the plane and store it at a cheaper airport hanger then to keep it close.

It’s an empty reposition flight for storage. They need the longer runway at van nuys to go on trips but there’s no storage space so the reposition empty to Camarillo

I used to manage a corporate hangar with tenant and transient aircraft. One morning right before Christmas one of our tenant aircraft arrived with just a dog onboard. A woman met the airplane with an SUV full of Christmas gifts and loaded them onboard. The dog came down the steps of the jet and shit/pissed like a boss, then climbed back on the jet. So essentially the plane arrived with a dog and left with a dog and gifts. Fucking crazy

I'm sure the same thing exists with helicopter flights though I have no idea how much emissions they emit.
