    General lowering of speed limits

    I typed up a reply with multiple quotes yesterday but looks like I didn't send it...

    General lowering of speed limits

    I forgot to say in metropolitan areas (in SA). I'm surprised that you doubt me. It's not universal for all stretches of road but the the overall trend is downwards. A few examples: South Road south of Flaxmill Road 70>60 and 80>60 Dyson Road 90>80 Piggot Range Road 100>80 The most pervasive...

    General lowering of speed limits

    First the high speed roads were lowered by 10km/h, then there was a blanket rollout of 50 km/h unless otherwise notified, now anything above 60 has generally been lowered by another 10 km/h. Could this only be possible due to the climate of fear instilled by speed cameras? Before they became...

    Warren now on Twitter

    I can't believe people waste their time with that, or consider it to be newsworthy (he only used it for about 12 hours! :lol:)

    [14x06] December 27th, 2009 [South America Special]

    This was a pretty good special, although I enjoyed the Polar Special and the Botswana episode more. Needed some sort of challenge to see which was the best car (Bolivian Stig?) but apart from that pretty interesting countryside from the mountain road to having the same problems as mountain...

    Undeniable signs of Global Warming

    So is/was it warming due to variations in the sun's output or due to carbon dioxide, which must be taxed by an supranational bureaucracy to create an "incentive" to produce less of it? :hmm:

    I wish there was enough time for them to have the trio driving on the Ceau?escu Highway with commentary, like in the search for Europe's greatest road episode.

    Apprently the latest bank failure cost the FDIC more money than it has.

    They used the opportunity to trick the ACCC into letting them consolidate their power though.

    Hyperinflation coming to the U.S.

    Apparently yes, because the bank bailout went far beyond the $700 billion figure (according to CNN $11 trillion) and countries around the world are getting rid of their stocks of U.S. dollars so the net result is a sharp rise in the money circulating within the United States itself. In that doco...
