    3 lanes on the freeway.

    1 fckwit in each lane next to each other.

    Each fckwit doing 10 km/h below the speed limit.

    Oooh...what's that ? A speed camera.

    3 fckwits hit their brakes simultaneously.

    Fck fck fck fck fck fck.

    I got swooped by one the other week , when I was going for a run , I had an mental image of me lying on the road with a magpie pecking at my lifeless body , not really how I pictured myself going .

    Wear a mask backwards or draw some eyes on the back of your hoody. I bet they stop swooping you.

    Take a tennis racquet with you. He swoops, you swing, one of you is losing.

    I like magpies, love their songs. We feed them, they bring their babies when they fledge and it's all good. I have not been swooped since I was about 13, that's a long time ago. There's a swoopy one down the road a bit, not one of the crew we feed, that gives people a bit of a hard time including my wife but it seems to like me and won't swoop me, or my wife if I'm with her. Dunno why, I don't feed them as their territory is not our house. I do whistle, mimic their song, when I see them though.

    Just carry long sticks that stick our over your head. It's better than the eyes. Saw a thing on Facebook where a Milburn radio station tried the sticks and eyes. Sticks worked. Eyes on helmet didn't.
    Edit: Sticks stopped the magpie hitting the host. Eyes were being hit hard. Lucky she had a helmet.

    If you keep looking at the magpie, it will NOT swoop.
    The moment you take your eyes off them........watch out!!!!
    They're bloody cowards and will only swoop when you're not looking at them.

    Anyway.......
    That bloody "Dancing With The Stars" song and dance advertisement,
    really does my head in.
    Mind you, the Chicky Babes are good value.

    People that can't live without their phone for 5 mins, even at tafe, is facebook really more impotent then learning to become successful and knowledgeable at your trade?

    when the first question people ask is "How much did you pay for it"
    I mean do others really need to know everything about it all.
    and when the response is "enough", that should be adequate for people to not ask the same question again!

    funnily enough they normally seem to be the first ones to tell you what to do with money or how to spend it
    or just to plainly give advice that with any knowledge is quite wrong on silly. :thumbsup:

    Like when I bought a brand new SWB Nissan ST GQ Patrol back in 1990.
    My snobby Aunt asked; "how much was it?"
    My Mum came back with the best answer and said; "lets just say it's paid for."
    Go Mum. GRHS.

    When a ####ing For Sale add says PICK UP / NO SHIPPING.

    Its because I ####ing hate dealing with shipping.

    #### in SA brought my old wheels. Wrap them up book Pack and Send online, Pay and off we go.

    I tried checking the Online Booking T&Cs but it kept redirecting me in a loop to the main page, so I figured #### it. Why would I wheel be that hard?

    Get to the place, oh you cant send this. Its a wheel. How do you know, it could be a giant inflatable donut.

    Cant send it.

    Sooo you watched me wrap the ####ing thing in tape, came out and said oh you must be Michael and then allowed me to carry all 4 wheels into the shop for you to tellme you dont know if Startrack will take them because Ive used an online booking from Pack and send.

    #### you.

    Is this the lip of the wheel? Yes.

    Why doesnt it have cardboard against it? Cause I dont give a ****, #### lowballs me then gets me to post it he gets half arsed postage.

    Pack and Send.

    I did a total of 5 minutes researching shipping mobs, theyre up the street from work figured why not.

    Theyre going to ring Startrack (but its a holiday in NSW so he cant today -.-) and find out if theyll take it.

    I've advertised the same and sold a stock exhaust only to be told they're going to arrange for it to be picked up by an courier and could I wrap it and be home? "Nope! Ad clearly stated pick up only because I didn't need the hassle of arranging packing and shipping"

    Guy got all upset as he'd already paid (no refunds was also stipulated) so I said I'd leave it outside my house. It was his property after all and funds had cleared and were in my account.

    It sat there on the nature strip for 2 days exactly as it was from when it was removed from my car. Came home one day and it was gone and I never heard from him again. lol

    Hahahaha for this exact reason I just won't do it. Unless the buyer wants to organize the lot, meh - I'm happier just keeping whatever it is.

    I am building a speaker system from a computer PSU and some old car gear. I just cut out all the panels and the speakers holes, drop one of the 6" speakers in and there is tonnes of movement, no way speaker will seal. Double check the speaker spec sheet, and correct, measure the speaker itself, and there is a 15mm variance, spec sheet was way out. ####. Now I have to recut the front panel and speaker holes. Thanks Cadence.
