There is a guy who commutes in full body armour. I chuckle each time I pass him. He often wears board shorts with knee pads. :shock: Ok, maybe if he was blading to work and felt inexperienced, some of that might make sense, but on the bike... Met a guy on the train once with a Giant MTB, which I wa...

You'd have to steal this off of Batman, first, and maybe get some bigger abs moulded in on the front... :lol: Does it come fully equipped with the parachute, or does that cost extra?

Good food at Cookie... and beverages... :) Food .... they serve food ? :shock: Yeah, yeah... :lol: Easy to get lost in that menu of beers and wines, huh? One could almost stay sober in trying to decide, dammit. I like to sit in the 'side room' section at Little Creatures surrounded by all the beers...

I find the public response to the Chaser skit interesting, considering that in the same week, Andrew Bolt wrote an article in a so-called NEWSpaper wherein he denied the entire stolen generation... yet I've seen no backlash at all. Pop culture apparently is more inflammatory :?:

Egad, Pete!! Way to kill the dream... although I suppose they don't have a whole lane to themselves... Well it's not as bad as that photo makes it seem. Lots of dedicated lanes and free-flowing bike traffic 8) Oooohhh, I liked the part with the city centre closed off to traffic. I am a huge fan of ...

Imagine the memories that doing that jump again would have had for those guys - including the one who broke his leg yet again. Imagine the memories stirred up for the local people as well. I can't even begin to think what it would have been like for any of them. Never been to Europe. Closest I've co...

That's what the Shared Spaces movement is all about - doing away with traffic lights and much of the traffic control signage completely, leaving the street as a less certain community living space. Thanks for the link. Interesting, the Colombian example used from Bogota. I wonder how many of the mu...
