    I'm so poor! I come from a poor family, the butler's poor, the maid's poor, the gardener's poor. Even our gamekeeper is poor.

    please stop your reminiscing about the old days and stay on topic (goes for most of your postings )
    I believe his post is on topic despite it drifting from the original specific post. You may find the 'old days' are more than something to reminisce about when there are even fewer jobs requiring you to work longer hours because there are ten or more people waiting to take it who are.

    Mentioned somewhere in these posts is a need to get back some manufacturing and if necessary to do so by taxing all of the rubbish we import. Many say its impossible...they may be right but unless we do so the future will only look rosy for the greedy few. The mining boom is a really a joke as the money earned by Australia is massively offset by imports and loss of jobs those imports end up causing.

    The whole story's a bullshit excuse. Time of day. Speed.

    Who picks up speed when they are falling asleep?

    My nice biased picture of the crash has not changed. A guy with white knuckles doing 100+ and a pulsing vein across his beetroot forehead screaming GTFouttamyway and it all turning to shit on him.

    On the rich get richer shit? Times are tight. Had to let the cashy foreign student cleaner go and rely on the roomba. Gardener, manicurist and masseuse stay but hey, some things are necessary in life.

    If you fall asleep and your muscles relax you could maybe have your leg become dead weight that pushes the pedal further down? In theory I suppose.

    Just from experience. That micro sleep thing for anyone who has experienced it? Nothing much changes with the body. You just drift off literally. Never had a crash but the moment of regaining control is an eye opener and a lesson in when it starts happening, stop and nanny nap. Or goey.

    Ok on a bike. Nod off and the throttle rolls off, head dips forward and instant awake. What the Nullabor does to you at the speed limit. Over and over again.
