Little Things You Hate

Fuck the algorithm! Is it just me or does every other male that cruises a bit of you tube find themselves within constant threat of Rogan clips? I'm just trying to watch some complete common sense alien conspiracy ancient alien architect documentaries and fuck me in the ears if you tube doesn't want me to watch Rogan give a piggy back to Alex Jones or similar shill crap.

I've seen your auto-correct throw some random words into your posts at times before @pink poodle - but never more than where it's inserted the word "documentaries" above.

In case there was any lingering doubt about the old Fairfax papers now being IPA/LNP populist shite now, we have yet another round of “rego for bikes” crap…


I still can’t work out what their game is here. Is there a purpose to hating on cyclists, or is it just outrage sells clicks?

3 out of the four top articles seem to alway be about footballs too. Clearly leading with hard hitting journalism. Remember when fairfax was reputable?

There's a part of me that's all for bike rego:
- to be fair and equitable to car rego it would either have to be insanely cheap, or make vehicle rego stupidly expensive, pissing drivers off
- it would take up a shitload of VicRoads' (or other state equivalent), pissing off drivers when they need something from them
- if I'm paying for road use you can guarantee that I'm not riding in the bike lane when it hasn't been maintained correctly, so I'll be in the centre of the left lane safety, pissing drivers off

I think runners/joggers should also pay rego.

I really do wonder what their game is. Is it simply selling clicks, because you then wonder what justifications they tell themselves for flat out lying. And I’m assuming they’re not dumb, they must k ow they’re lying!

Or is it jsut part of the broader political division the IPA/LNP engage in - keep the masses distracted and bickering about trivial stuff. And if I so I guess the widening wealth gap suggests this approach is actually profitable for them… I wonder if some of them at least wonder about the ethics? Probably not…

Couldn't be policed, here we are all just riding a bike. How would you force someone to claim they are a cyclist.



Now, before I’m set upon by a peloton of angry lycrarians, I want to make a clear delineation. There is a difference between riding a bicycle and being a cyclist.
If you are earning money from your time pedalling on the road, be it delivering a sandwich, or running some parcels across town, then you need to be clearly identifiable just like any other road vehicle.

In this instance, you are a cyclist, and you need to pay for and display adequate registration.
This should extend to equipment that is earning revenue on the road too. Hire bikes (and scooters) should be registered, even if their transient users aren’t.

If you routinely spend every Sunday morning rolling en masse along a beachside boulevard, pumping the blood as much as you are metaphorically pumping your fist at an imaginary Le Tour stage gate, then you are a cyclist too and you should probably pay for registration.
You’re on the road. You're using the infrastructure. You are at risk from other cyclists and you are a risk to pedestrians. Plus, I can't be the only person to have seen riders sail through red traffic lights...

However, if you’re hopping on the Malvern Star on a lovely spring morning for that one, annual, commute to work, you are simply riding a bike.

If you’re pedalling to the park to kick the footy with the kids, you are riding a bike. If you are popping up to the shops to pick up a loaf of bread, a container of milk and a stick of butter, then you are riding a bike.
In these cases, you should probably get registration or insurance too, but you shouldn’t have to, especially if you own a car.

That was mind numbingly dumb line of “logic”…

I really want to move to Europe after reading that dumbfuck article and the comments section.

Australian cities are shit, Australian suburbs are shit, Australian attitudes to trains and active transport is shit.

It can’t be a coincidence that the UK, US and us are the worst for cycling and also are Murdochracies…

What about 3 year olds on their first bike too? Hit 'em with road taxes nice and early.
Balance bikes should probably carry special insurance because of the "valuable cargo" they carry and face higher premiums + excess due to the age and irresponsible behaviour of the riders.
