The high probability of ending up on tedBus rotbox tonight to get back from a venue. The word quality does not exist in any Australian dictionaries.

Those people in shopping centres from energy companies and the like that try and get your attention in a sarcastic manner, then when you say honestly that we are all sorted (the landlord is in charge of the energy packages- not me), they get all cranky with you, the young lady made a very snide remark.


Reports that Prep students are stabbing principals, kicking staff and hurting fellow classmates. Now when I was a Prep student in the good old days of the late 1980's there was none of that, in my (government) school at least, yes one kid had a meltdown and gave another one a whack, but it was no where near as bad. Teachers were respected and came down hard on the offenders, the parents were not as feral either.

Someone said to me at the bus terminal this morning that society today is one hell of a b****fight, I agree with him.

Even as a person who loves Volvo and Volgren buses, the fact that Perth is going to be stuck with them for another 10 years is bugging me. And will be bugging me for another 10 years.

Er, come to Adelaide then where there are a mix of jackpot CB80s and 'Bustech's which are rather uncomfortable for me to catch.

If they could be swapped with the Volgren Volvos from WA, it would probably be quite relieving for me.

Well, I don't mind keeping with Volgren specifically (hopefully they update the body design within another 5 years), but stuck with Volvos for 10 years? I don't think I can manage that. Honestly, I wouldn't mind a batch of Scanias, or a switch from ZF to Voith.

P.S. I have had experience riding Scanias - in Jakarta.

1. Songs these days just seem to be based on sexual relationships.
2. Having people using swear words to hurt people, just so they can be popular.
3. The Government denying what the recent climate protesters wanted.

EDIT: I Don’t really mind people swearing but I do mind if they use it to hurt people.

Quite reasonable to give people the S&#T's with songs these days. Why can't most songs be a bit more family-friendly?

MotorOmnibus8562 wrote:2. Having people swear, just so they can be popular.

Some people do think I have a problem with swearing (as in: 1. Someone swears 2. I tell them in as polite a voice I can muster to not swear). Quite frankly, I do have a problem with swearing. Why? Because these days, all the 'cool' people swear, and thus the world is no longer family-friendly as everybody looks up to those who swear.

Was this in the news? If so, I didn't get it. (By climate protesters, do you mean people actually concerned about climate change or vegans?)

P.S. I use family-friendly as in: for general purpose, all-accessible without acting as an insult.

Regards foul language, I notice comedians get the loudest laughs when they use a swear word. I mean, there is no wit required whatsoever but they get praised as though it's so clever and inventive. Just shows how hive minded we've become since the peak of history, the early 80s.

I don’t mind if people swear but I do if it’s used to hurt someone so they can be popular.

Most songs these days are so explicit that the song’s producer has to cut a edited version to get a song that is clean enough to play on radio as most of the artists are American so the songs have to have a lot of the explicit content bleeped out so it can get cleared by the FCC to be played on the radio over there

The tunes and beats are the result of computer algorithms designed to come up with formulas that are proven to appeal to the brains of our youth.

More songs these days just seem to be based on those sexual relationships, I’m pretty sure the relationship is experienced by the singer. :shock: :x


What’s More? The Titles of songs That have rude Terms in them, the title of the song “S-h-u-t up and dance” is one of them, I’ll now call it: “Stand up and Dance” :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil: :twisted: :twisted: :x

A piece of sh!t Phillips monitor failing after just 16 months of use! Now I have to use my 7-8 year 1600x900 Samsung monitor until a replacement is sourced, as I think the receipt went walkabout.... Yay not.

I'll never purchase a Phillips monitor again.

And those folks who speak with their arms (as in moving their limbs in lieu with their words). I know it's highly common, but essentially is a distraction from what's being said, particularly in videos. I know not that I've posted this, everybody will starting doing it!

Are you sure it hasn't got more than a 12 month warranty? Even if it's only 12 months, I'd still contact Philips.

Yuck! You can keep your Voith. I much rather have something that is actually decisive on what gear it wants to be in and what it's retarder wants to do.

MAN NL323's with ZF's would be nice, but alas... a full fleet of around 1800 Volvo's in 10 years time :twisted:
If it's not a ZF, take it back!
