    Yeah sure - does my 1/32 of ancestry entitle me to the entire country or just Tasmania?

    Yeah but I'd much rather have ABS on a bike than a car, given the option.

    Currently I have neither. But then I also no longer ride bikes on the road. It's not really my skill I'm concerned about,...

    You know something that's really funny? China is fucking with Australian food exports to China. Producers here are reluctant to export.

    The problem is, the fuckwits aren't even embarrassed about trying to scam you out of $20 or $50 or so.
