Come back when you're dead and we'll fine him.

BV should be onto that.


Yeah but those United Front blokes went a step further, making a vid with pretend cutting off heads and fake blood. No one's done that to cyclists yet. Maybe then.

Maybe we need Waleed Ali on board?

It begs the obvious question, doesn't it?

How many crucifixions does it take to start a new religion?

You made my night, Cameron. My ears are having an orgasm from the laughter. Now I must call it a night online and fall back on the boring old Persimmon Tree by YKW because not even Bryce could have moved me like you did, sonny boy. (K. Judge from the book).

Let us make the most of these good sleeping nights before Guatemala gets blown to the heavens. In the Waray-Waray dialect of Leyte in The Philippines, they would say, 'Katurog hin maupay' and in Thailand they would say 'Norn laab faan dee' (transliterated) but in Australia, we say 'Goodnight and Happy Dreams', so that is what I write to you as well as 'Thank you for the Brian reference'.

I was honestly being too serious up there. Goodnight.

How much do you hate the Romans?

This is something I have previously shared and was told by a duty officer that only police recorded footage is submissible. Also a snide comment “I don’t know why you even ride on the streets”.

I wrote a letter (not email) to the area commander whether he could confirm this was true and got a response that it was incorrect - of course footage can be used.

The evidence act, which is pretty uniform across the states. A video recording is admissible as evidence of what it shows.

That's right - always a good idea to keep original unedited footage - but of course when a police officer is not interested, that is another hurdle. Of course there are also officers who are engaged and work to get action so riders have to still consider police as an important link in changing and improving safety.
