    Kangaroos vs Cars

    Are these the dumbest animals around or what, I hit a big one this morning on the way to work at 100 km/h, it literally jumped over the guard rail and BANG, airbag went off, was a big hit, got out and checked it, it was still alive just, but couldn't move so i put it to permanent sleep. The Ute is a bit of a mess, thats three of our work Utes damaged by big roo strikes since Monday Why cant they just hop across the road when no cars are nearby?

    Yep, all good thanks Katz, had plenty of roo strikes over the years, this was by far the biggest though, im just glad no one was behind me as i hit the brakes pretty hard.

    Went to the pool and practised holding my breath under water as I’m getting back into my spear fishing after a couple of years hiatus. Pretty stoked to get 1:18 on one breath tonight.

    Whats a lifestyle expert?

    Thanks, Im ok, got a few irons in the fire, including the position in town with my company on the Rio Tinto scope, this is the role i really want as its in the planner role i have talked about in other threads, speaking to the manager on that one we should have some info in about 2 weeks and maybe an answer for me, other than that my company here on site still have the maintenance contract and they had a chat with me today and said that I am required so will see what happens there, then i spoke with our opposition on site today with their site manager and as soon as i said i was local he was like, YEP, we need locals, as the client does not want FIFO, so thats also promising and he asked for my details and to send my CV to him and his HR, if all that falls through ill jump on a shut down and earn 5 k a week for a few weeks, the bonus here is that its our company doing the shutties and HR already have all our details and spots for us on those shuts. I'll keep engaged with the MH though

    Finished off the tour de zwift today, I missed stage 5 when it was on, snapped my seat post clamp 2km in so that wasn’t ideal riding with the saddle at the lowest point. #awkward

    my parents just received a text saying there place is at risk of inundation due to the dam gates opening even further, Im a bit surprised they got it, i would think they are quite safe from that despite being close to the river, they are relatively high up from the river

    Going Vegan

    I may be able to help mate, my younger brother has been Vegan since 2015, is your daughter just going vegan for food related or life in general, would be pretty hard to change the general living stuff in just a month, but the food can certainly be done I can ask my brother about recipes, snacks etc that he uses if you like

    I need new cranks

    Hi I need new cranks, my polygon has these cranks below that came on it as standard, can anyone recommend a replacement, this is due to the flats pedals i have on them having become stuck and cannot be removed, The bike shop cant even get them off, nor can I after heating them up and having a pipe extender on the hex key, for whatever reason they have became incredibly tight, Im going back to my SPD pedals. I know nothing about these cranks and what would be a suitable replacement Prowheel Charm-32T-TT-B 32T BOOST 2-piece-crank

    Yeah I worked on the GLNG upstream compressor stations out near injune, all the farmers we dealt with were good, there were a couple of properties we were not allowed on

    GLNG doesn’t have enough gas, last I heard Santos are struggling to unlock more CSG out west. Although I have seen the proposed wells for all qld and it’s epic, just have to get the farmers on board.....good luck

    We are just about to commission woodsides domestic fuel supply load out facility we have just finished building, they will have tripples coming in all day everyday loading LNG into their trucks to send out to mining companies up here who are switching over to LNG power, much cleaner fuel than anything else, the sooner the general public get onboard the better.

    If all the governments were serious about water supply for all of Australia then they would get together and build the bloody supply pipeline from the Ord river catchment, no more drought would be had. Sure it would cost billions but it’s worth it! So much water wasteage up here that could be going to good use. Same with clean fuel, we could pipe LNG to the east coast from the pilbara! But Nooooooo. To many roadblocks
