    O M E "According to this legislation, the racetrack Turbo mentioned would not be operating. Police have to be present and can stop any event if there is imminent danger (more danger than expected in racing). Police and also tell an unsafe driver that their racing day is over." And I believe that would be the reason for much of the HOONing on the roads. Were in this BIG city would a youngster go to, Just to put their foot to the metal, Just that one time !. The thrill that we oldies took for granted, when we went "outback", to raise the dust. spacesailor

    "You can take a horse to water, but you can't make it drink; if people don't want to get involved in their sport it eventually slides into the past." And other's get pushed aside to keep the favorite's clique Happy. I'll come to your BBQ, drink your wine, but when the conversations are not on the same social level, there's a break-down in any dialog, Some of us mortals are socially inept. We answer in single syllables, our vocabulary is on the slender side to put it politely. WE Just don't fit, Wrong school tie !, perhaps wrong varsity or club. Some things "Dumb" ILLITERATE people excel at. One in particular is an excellent Backyard mechanic, also good at MORSE-CODE, which amazes me. spacesailor

    Turbs You forget !, If guilty of DUI, that insurance is Not worth the paper it's written on. The old man, Vietnam war vet only drank, "A carton of beer" Daily. The same for the wife, He died of emphysema, she followed him three or four months later, two eldest sons suicide'd before that date, a third son is the Hoon, plus a "normal daughter. AND LOTS of Little ankle-biter's. Nice couple to know, kept a nice garden, New tenants have their old place like a tip. Never seemed over the limit, But I don't think he could pass a breathalyzer. Zero interest in anything, including children. spacesailor

    I have Known a lot of reasonable competent driver's who have Not insured their vehicle,because they know the insurance will be "Null & Void" if they get caught for any misdemeanor. ( at later date No registration, then No licence ) And still on the road. because they Can't comply with the law's, (Not plural but multiple). Mr, & Mrs x died young leaving children with no hope of conforming to law's were you have to be literate. AND now their children also. spacesailor

    " If the government came along and said to you: "M, we've decided to scrap all our current aviation regulations and start again and we'd like you to list a new set of rules" that might be worth thinking about, but what's wrong with choosing what you want to fly and just going out and doing it?". SCRAP the "wing loading rule", I chose a Good Solid, Safe, Economical, AND good looking aircraft. At The Time of choosing ( If I had built it quicker,) It Was registable, As was the other aircraft from the same designer, flying !. WHY do the Bureaucrats think "Low wing loading" is SAFE. Striping all Safety gear And the heavy main-spar out said aircraft, to comply with a rule that is "grandfathered" to "flying-registered" aircraft, does NOT in anybodey's opinion, Makes that compliance, SAFE !. Which of the two aircraft fit the SAFE aircraft RULE. spacesailor

    Glenn1, Apollegees, But The thread drift is Threatening me. "Shonky training/testing organisations should be arrested and jailed in recognition of the danger they have unleashed on the unsuspecting public (no different to drug pushers)." I NEED those Shonkies, I am Bureaucaticly inept. When your "pen-pusher's/teacher's & other bureaucrats, sit around trying to find "work", dreaming up concockted wonders of literature (again had to consult My Dictionary), It bodes disastor for the likes of me. Four year's untill they "BUREAUACRATES" take my driving licence off me. ONE blooodi crash in SIXTY ONE years on the road, and I was not the driver, In my 1 crash !. I thought I was doing good at my flight training. untill the TEST, then NO blooodi good, Havent flown since !. spacesailor

    Compulsary Helmets ! I gave uo motor-cycling when that came in. 50 years later my children & grandchildren forced a helmet on my head, They were shocked how hard it was. Bike still sits in their shed, Unused. The cops NEVER breath test pub-patrons. THEY let them on to the ROAD then get them ! ( or try to ). THEN RBT Me 6 yes SIX times in one day. BULLL_SHEEET to that, IT"S Revenue Raising. spacesailor

    "Road design & conditions has never killed or injured anyone" The motor ways in UK had to be realigned, due solely to drivers NOT noticing they were "turning" on a bend. (road too straight). Then they said it was "Speed" Take ten off the speed limit. But still had the bends fixed. spacesailor

    Ian. Can we cut the "365 days" down to a week or two. I seem to have too many to wade through, if away for a couple of weeks. Many thanks for your efforts, and to all Contributor's interesting topics. spacesailor

    Re., the NSW law on entering & exiting driveway's Can someone look up the law, as-to "Revering into a road from your driveway !. "The optimum car park is 45 degrees nose in; I've never understood the logic of stopping the traffic to reverse in." SO you stop the traffic reversing OUT, into oncoming traffic !. I was under the impression that the Law said reverse in, OR have a person direct the traffic behind you. (with a RED FLAG & BELL) spacesailor

    3 free Australian aviation museum online tours

    Saw the wreaks on "Cape york" It was fascinating to say the least. BUT as I worked in the Alloy recycling industry, Iv'e put uncountable number's into smelter;s, (turned into ingots ). Didn't like the burning to destroy (unwanted ) aircraft, Undamaged, still had full tnks, & some were fully armed, ( could have had a flight occasionally, but time is money to the boss ) so the mechanics & other airpersonel missed out. Almost had a Lysander ride but they put the torch to it when we were inspecting, and thinking of "One last flight " Squeaky engine when the Lysander was being started, Then we ran away from the burning plane. Most wooden or canvas aircraft were burnt on the airfield. spacesailor

    I wasn't going to post here, as it's well off topic. BUT If the authorities can have six deaths as acceptable on a road that previously had zero, I don't think the Northern Territories should employ them. (the police ) There was No speed limit on the Stuart hwy NT, & no deaths for many years, but after the limit was imposed there was lots, six on the second year. I'll stop as on the wrong thread !. spacesailor
