Advice for becoming a pedicabber?

Hi collective wisdom,I'm interested in pedicabbing this summer. How would one start? Are there companies to avoid? Has anyone gotten their own license, etc. and, if so, what went into it? What's the money like? How flexible is scheduling? How competitive is the industry?Thanks!See More

Morning replied to Morning's discussion Air pollution masks
"Yeah, I was wondering the same thing. Is the relative size of NO2 comparable to the size of oxygen (and all of the other gases in breatheable air)? Cuz then one would have to use saran-wrap to keep it out: it and everything else with it."

Dave Jacque replied to Morning's discussion Air pollution masks
"I wonder how much good those masks actually do for anything other than the very largest particulates. The really fine stuff, on the micron scale, is what causes long-term damage because you can't cough it up. And a filter mask can't screen…"
