Light rail is a pompous mouthful to make something old seem new. I prefer tram.

The variety of sources I have used for this post is very wide, but principally, it older men who are very experienced with public transport and are prone to ranting and talking about the good old days, and how Europe does it so much better. Having seen some train and train systems in Europe, they are probably right.

Without great map knowledge of Sydney, the first criticism I heard of Sydney's proposed new light rail system is that while it is good for the line to connect Circular Quay to Central (the principal train station), it should have then gone down Oxford Street and turned into Anzac Parade. Instead its route from Central has meant demolition of some properties and the tram running along quite narrow streets, with a good bit of extra infrastructure needed. I have heard reasons why this became the plan, but I am doubtful. It is possible that if the tram ran ...
My new housemates left me alone in the house and this happened hehe.  
Worst Idea Yet
I can't remember where I was going with this post but as nothing else is written for today, it will have to do.

What a great headline.

Public Service says the Australian Public Service is not corrupt. Can I assume the Australian  public service has investigated itself? The conclusion being that the public service found that the public service is not corrupt. Given our Public Servants are beyond corruption, I feel good about this and this story really needed to come out, that our public servants have concluded our public servants are not corrupt.

Truly, I am not making this up. Here is a link to a media report.

You may know that second and third world developing and undeveloped countries are very corrupt but for goodness sake, don't ever think that developed ...

Good day from Bali. Well, not quite yet. I should be taking off from Sydney at the moment this is published (assuming the flight is on time).


And in six hours time I will (should) be in Bali, Indonesia.

In the car with the Killer, Luigi was considering all the options.  They were nearly there.  The road ascended past beautiful houses, through avenues of deciduous trees in their autumn dress.  At each bend in the road, Luigi expected to see the turnoff to the Cross and the picnic site. 
So what I’ll do is this, he thought.  When we’re both out of the car, I’ll attack him, yelling to Cody to run.  I’ll just leap at him, and even if he shoots me, he might not kill me.  I’ll push him over, and then run away from him.  Also, maybe the police will be there.  But what if they are already there and he just shoots us?  What can I do in the car?  He’s on the back seat, if I turn around to do anything, he’ll kill Cody and then me.

 He went through the options again and again.  None of them appeared propitious.  The memory of his own ...

Good morning everyone, how was your weekend?

Mine was fun and rather social although sans-sex/naughty activities.

It is a pretty nice looking day here so I’m going to duck south to a nice little beach and work on my speedo tan.

But, before I leave I would like to share with you guys this email I received over the weekend.  I love getting fan mail and I love opening guys minds when it comes to our speedo fetish/fantasy.

Hi Dave,

I just felt like I had to say WOW when it comes to your site. I don’t think I have ever seen a website that captures a lot of things I feel.

To let you know, about 5 years ago, I made a conscious effort to get myself in shape. I wasn’t in horrible shape, but I always just wanted to have that beach body. 3 years ago, I felt in good enough shape to wear square cuts in public at the beach and this year I finally got to courage to proudly wear a 1″ side speedo at the beach
