    The accelerator pedal.
    The view driving along the coast from Ocean Reef to Scarborough.
    Those two bouncy things on female joggers.
  1. Funnily enough the Uber driver that dropped me off was talking about his sons BA XR6T that he recently bought, so I think Rob's going to have a new customer soon.
  2. I was talking to Rob on Monday when I had the car in for it's 100K service and he's got a few customer cars in currently that are being prepared for Racewars. I'm looking forward to seeing some of these fast Falcon's I've been reading about on the forums, in the flesh.
  3. Way off the mark for me http://www.foxbusiness.com/features/2014/01/15/what-your-car-color-says-about.html Silver The metallic gleam of silver shines bright with innovation. Think stainless steel appliances and silver technology. It's the color of security and style, Cooperman says. A silver car color indicates that you're a high-class lady or gentleman with an eye on the upscale, Augustin says. Your status is higher in the world, and you're not afraid to show it. "As a fallback color, it's nice," Cooperman says, because it doesn't get as dirty as a white car or as hot as a black car. It seems most Americans would agree with that assessment, as it's the third most popular car color. "Overall, neutral colors (white, silver, black and gray) have dominated the market the past few years," Lockhart says. http://www.colorpsychology.org/what-your-car-color-might-say-about-you/ Silver Silver has been a very prevalent car color in recent times. While this might be in part because silver looks sleek but not too overstated, it may also be a reflection of the technological advances our society has made. Many high tech devices are silver or metallic, and driving a silver car may indicate an alliance with and appreciation for this change and evolution in our society. A silver car may also indicate that the driver is practical and responsible, yet enjoys and appreciates the innovative and slightly flashy things in life.
  4. I find it's the opposite for me, must be the look of the G6ET? I had one guy in a Late model camira ask about it on Sunday at the servo, had a good chuckle when I mentioned how many people on the freeway pull over to the left when I come up behind them, maybe thinking I look like an unmarked or something?
  5. I'm not that photogenic K31th, besides I wouldn't want to give you nightmares of my ugly mug Plus I expect holding the mobile phone above my head would make the few staff that don't know me well, think I'm a weirdo
  6. The good: Man it's great not having any clunking sounds from the rear end, now that the bushes have been done. The bad: Somehow I managed to get sunburn on the bald spot yesterday
  7. Car should feel a little better this afternoon, dropped the car in for rear diff mount bushes, rear blade arm bushes and as I asked why I have been hearing a squishing type noise at low speed stopping, new front's as well.
  8. Hopefully not this house. http://feature.thewest.com.au/methcity/ Authorities discovered 90kg of the drug — the biggest methamphetamine bust in WA — when they raided properties in Queens Park and Cloverdale on Thursday, arresting one Singaporean and five Taiwanese in their 20s.
  9. Here's an article on the fire in question: http://www.abc.net.au/4corners/stories/s478800.htm RITA HOP: I got woken up because I thought there were kids playing with fireworks, or something. It was a firework, alright, but 44-gallon drums flying in the air. STEPHEN McDONELL: The toxic cocktail poured into the night sky. Firefighters battled to control it. Unknown chemicals combined to mutate, lethal dioxins were formed, and explosions sent the deadly material in all directions. PROFESSOR PETER DINGLE, ENVIRONMENTAL TOXICOLOGIST, MURDOCH UNIVERSITY: You're getting huge plumes of black, dirty, contaminated, very toxic smoke. For a decade, it had been licensed by the Government as a chemical and solvent recycling plant. But its main business, in reality, was stockpiling toxic waste in thousands of drums - many rusting, leaking and unlabelled. Waste produced by panel beaters, hospitals, large industrial companies was being dumped. Heavy metals, acids, sodium aluminate and percloroethylene, or dry-cleaning fluid - a known carcinogen - along with many unknown substances were all lumped in together. Yet government departments were recommending the site to industry.
  10. Obviously not from the comment I quoted in the article I linked: Jenny Boymal, from cleaning education company Jena Dyco, said without remediation, methamphetamine contamination could linger for years. "We've had customers who have gone in to do remediation and have lost track of thought for five seconds and had very minor contamination wearing full-face respirator, full suit, and been very sick afterwards," she said. "And that's walking into the property doing a quick assessment and walking out. "Living in the property - you can't even imagine the level of contamination." I've only heard from one copper mate about attending a home meth lab, he was called out to bring a trailer so they could move equipment into it for evidence storage, even standing out on the verge with the lab in the shed out the back, he got headaches and took the next day off work. Still doesn't top the story of attending a chemical factory fire though, he got a letter three weeks after attending that one to say no-one still knows what was in the barrel's that literally shot up into the air on fire and rained down, so they told him he needed new uniforms and new boots and to dispose of the others.
  11. Well you haven't seen our desks but let's just say they are the proverbial "cheapest sh1t possible for the most expensive price", so everyone has a mouse pad because laser mice don't work on the bare desks. They jump about everywhere, about the only thing these desks are good for is attracting dust and it getting ingrained into the top layer.
  12. Me for one, I don't know about you but "caustic soda, hydrochloric acid, acetone, peroxide" leaching into the environment around me and causing health problems is something I would like to avoid.
  13. I love my Razor Goliathus mouse mat's, I bought one for work after using one at home.
  14. Apparently it gets into the walls and chemicals leach out over time and cause health problems. Interestingly some articles state that even if you've never used meth, being somewhere it was used, it can leach into your body and cause you to fail drug tests. Just had a read of this article and it doesn't sound like the sort of stuff hanging around where you live, eat and sleep. http://www.abc.net.au/news/2014-12-22/laws-needed-to-protect-home-owners-drug-lab-contamination-police/5973256 Detective Acting Inspector Geoff Marsh, from Queensland police state drug command, said the illicit substances were being cooked using makeshift equipment and a toxic cocktail of chemicals. "They're made of acids [and] they're made of bases like a caustic soda, hydrochloric acid, acetone, peroxide - all the chemicals that you'd normally associate with industrial cleaning are utilised in the production of methamphetamine," he said. Cleaners have long recognised the potentially deadly effects of these chemicals, and many are becoming certified to clean a property after police have finalised their investigation. Jenny Boymal, from cleaning education company Jena Dyco, said without remediation, methamphetamine contamination could linger for years. "We've had customers who have gone in to do remediation and have lost track of thought for five seconds and had very minor contamination wearing full-face respirator, full suit, and been very sick afterwards," she said. "And that's walking into the property doing a quick assessment and walking out. "Living in the property - you can't even imagine the level of contamination." I'm looking at getting any places I think of buying tested, because there's a higher usage rate in the suburbs I am looking at.
  15. johnny with the hard hitting questions...
