Finally...

Some fucking logic in the road safety argument/shitfight, after a bad weekend on WAs roads:

Weekend deaths bring WA road toll to 63

Western Australia's road toll has climbed to 63 for the year, with eight deaths in the past 48 hours.

A motorcyclist was killed when he came of his bike in the Perth hills suburb of Lesmurdie this afternoon.

Seven other motorists have been killed since Friday night.

Grant Dorrington would have practising his mantra's and getting his propaganda cronies all warmed up, and then someone brings some logic into the situation:

Despite the high number of fatalities, WA Police Minister John Kobelke says the Government's road safety strategy is working.

"More people are being saved by our strategy but because of the increased number of vehicles, the millions of kilometres more being driven we are not seeing a marked reduction in the deaths overall," he said.

 

WA Police Minister John Kobelke says he is horrified at the loss of more lives on the roads.

 

"What we do know is that the current road safety strategy has been working, that is on average there have been 34 deaths less each year than what there were in 2000, so more people are being saved by our strategy," he said.

Grant Dorrington's ears would have been searing in pain...

I don't get fashion...

Plumber

I really don't get fashion. I really don't.

Last night while I was out at the park enjoying the summer night, a girl wearing those in-vogue hipster jeans came along and sat down on the grass a little way away from me. Of course the view was similar to that shown above. She was conscious of her ass crack showing so she covered it up with her jumper/cardy thing.

My question is... why do people choose clothes that they don't feel comfortable in at all times? It just seems damn silly to me that you wear something that shows off parts of you that you don't want others to see. What is the point of wearing anything at all?
