Well those days are certainly gone haha! There is the odd teacher now that still likes pen to paper, but the vast majority just do everything electronically now 8)

That's what happens when half of your class is either sick, wagging or on excursions.

Don't despair, most of maths is still handwritten. A few other things are, but as Hawkeye said, mostly electronic. TBH I prefer handwriting stuff, because computers generally give me the sh*ts, but we're in the wrong thread for that :P .

True, there's only 13 in my music class when everyone is there (not often), so it doesn't surprise me.

True true, maths is about the only thing that is still handwritten. I can't stand using pencil though, gotta have a pen in my hand or nothing at all haha! Surprisingly, there are a lot more kids in my classes :lol:

I hate using a pencil as well. Obviously you can erase the writing if you don't like what's there. But I feel like a young kid using a pencil. I'm also picky about the colour of pens. I prefer blue over anything. Red etc, is annoying to use.

At least I didn't have to use the aforementioned to post this

Lol, speaking of pens and pencils (I prefer the former as well), I never actually received a 'pen license' from any of my teachers. I don't know what other people's experiences are, but at my primary school (Heathfield Primary) you had to prve to your teacher that you were neat enough to get a pen. I never did this (my handwriting is terrible), so never got a pen license. In year 6 I started using a pen anyway, so I like to think of myself as an illegal pen user. :lol: Black is my favorite pen colour, I don't really like blue.

Look at us all here, talking about pens. :roll:

Damn, that brings back memories... I remember back in years 4/5, I had to prove to the teacher I was neat enough in order to use a pen. And quite surprisingly, I was the first one to get my license haha! And speaking of pen colours, I can't stand writing in anything but blue or black, especially red! I gotta report you to the cops for using a pen without your license now :lol:

Found this 8 minute video of GM noise and laughed at the two sticks we used to have.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BgqJ6jfCBw0

Also think this semi is pretty maneuverable https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1qwmvBJV5Pg

The thing that made me feel very happy was the fact that I saw a Transperth female bus driver with the blonde hair tied in a bun. I felt that she was very friendly and determined to drive around Perth. I told her that once I get off the bus, I would shake my booty ass off near her! :lol: :lol: :lol:

Hmm, that certainly must be quite pleasing knowing your interest in that bus :D

For those who don't know, refer to Lt's signature to get an explanation behind 3269 and it's significance.

3269 is a 12.5. I'd beg to differ anyway, there are a few nice 14.5s (3311).

14.5m buses are great coming from a Sydney Sider. THe old Scania L113TRB STA 14.5m beasts love to hear their engines scream as they get up to speed and on motorways. Hillsbus Scania K280UB 14.5m buses just feel ugggh. Volvo B12 bendies squeak and whine far too much for my liking.
