  1. I am a cyclist and regularly travel on roads like that nearby. It has to be a spatial awareness problem. I am forever on alert to what is coming from the left and behind and like you approach every situation like a potential accident. The victim had he looked around could have avoided the tragedy. I don't know what the answer is.
  2. Yeah, but the Brits haven't voted for Jeremy Corbyn just yet. A bit like the Aussies, love to moan and groan and yet still continue to vote elitist a**holes into power to get more of the same.
  3. Don't you hate that? A Thai friend in Ubon took me to one such place and before we got there I said 'I will pay the bill' On arriving, the decor and look of the joint said 'You will pay big here'. For three people a bill of 1400 baht and some of the blandest Thai food I had ever tasted. Even my Thai g/f at the time said it was 'mai aroy'...yes, street food can still be pretty good.
  4. Shame, shame, shame...30 baht meals are so rare these days, 10-15 years ago fair enough, 40 baht is the norm today, and if I get charged 30 baht for a meal and it's good value I give them 40 or even 50 baht.
  5. Cranberries singer Dolores O'Riordan dies suddenly at 46

    'No Need To Argue' is a classic album , so she can be proud of that achievement but still far too young to leave this world.
  6. Africa calls Trump racist after 'shithole' remark

    I wonder if Mister Trump has actually visited any of these countries he refers to as 'shitholes'? Pretty good coming from a leader of a country whose health system is worthy of a 'shithole' and from a country that loves blowing up other countries and turning them into 'shitholes' (Iraq pssibly?).
  7. At least it's a start, actually getting off the road and taking a power nap is encouraged in Australia, can't speak for other Western nations. They have to begin somewhere.
  8. Don't just blame the refugees, blame the ABC and the lefty Greens, why not blame the gays, Asians, climate scientists and Aboriginals while you are at it?...ha! ha! old white farts are good for a laugh at least.
  9. The current Aus government looks after itself and its rich supporters more than anyone, but Aussies have been dumb enough to vote them back in. Yeah, when your country has no direction, when a government is rotten to the core and the country has so many problems, just blame the refugees.
  10. No, most are found to be genuine refugees. No sane person who had a relatively safe existence (albeit poor existence) back in their homeland would be crazy enough to risk coming to Australia on a broken up boat. Work it out..it's not that difficult.
  11. Actually if they had been brought to Australia in the first place it would have been a lot lot cheaper. I know who the brain dead are. The true scammers are the companies that have been in charge of detention centres like Nauru and Manus. Australia's shame.
  12. Correct me if I'm wrong...zero wage growth? More likely minus zero wage growth. Aussies are earning less while prices have gone up for goods and services.
  13. Good riddance to bad rubbish. The beginning of the end of this stinking corpse of a government. No idea, no jobs, no drop in electricity prices (as promised) ,aiding and abetting the super wealthy and leaving the scraps for the peasants. Australia has had a taste of Thatchersim. It won't be pretty at the ballot box for fraudster Malcom. Bring it on.
  14. You have to give it to the Thais though. When they get bowled over they get back on their feet beautifully. So flexible.
  15. Time to eat kangaroos. Better on the environment and lower in fat.
