    Yesterday I encountered a group of 6 or 7 motorbikes out for a Sunday cruise. I followed them for about 3km and my heart was in my mouth the whole time. They were an accident waiting to happen, or probably 6 accidents, or even 12 as most of them were carrying pillions.

    I am very very choosy about riding in groups, these guys were the perfect example of how not to conduct yourself in a group ride. They were too slow, they were bunched up, riding too close in single file, riding side by side in lane, inexperienced with pillions, cutting through traffic.

    I was so tempted to try and flag them down and give them a telling off, but I don't think it would be gracefully accepted
    The correct number of bikes to own = N + 1, where N is the current number of bikes you own.

    ^ yup not nice knowing they're an accident waiting to happen.
    No opportunity to have words to said rider, but even if there were, zero heed would have been paid. Rider was on a kwaka 250 and probably close to, or over 100kg. Bike would have been struggling. No match for a Golf GTI - luckily I didn't feel like having a kwaka 250 as a bonnet ornament.

    From my experience they would be Coffin Cheaters. Had a group of them pull up next to me at a set of lights a few years back. Watched one nearly lose it taking off, and another nearly hit a curb trying to navigate a corner.

    The name was very fitting given the way they rode.

    Edit: BOFH, back when I associated with the CMC, I had to have a talking to a few riders on one ride for overtaking cars on blind corners... Surprised we only ever had one person end up in hospital on those rides.

    No power at work from 10am till we all left at 1500.. Apparently a truck took out a pole somewhere..

    Makes me laugh all the people who rave about new technology. No power, no technology.

    No phones, computers, auto doors, eftpos, lights, auto hot water for a cuppa, microwave....

    Only good thing was luckily it wasn't raining.

    +1 Can you imagine how greatly it affects a workplace like mine
    Thankfully we have generator and UPS back-ups and other emergency procedures but even so in a major power outage all the "non essential" stuff goes out

    And as more people get solar the grid falls into disrepair and gets privatised it will only improve.

    Had a second interview for a new job nearly 3 weeks ago, got told at the time they were absolutely keen and would get an offer within days. Delay delay delay, and now the company has had a "restructure" so the position is on hold for now. Might be standing on street corners sooner than I had planned!!

    Cut the seat out of your pants.
    Doesn't get rid of them but at least it keeps them off your face.
