  1. Nine zeros = billions Jim. I cant see it is good for humanity that so few have so much.
  2. Police checks everywhere if you try and drive out of Melbourne, but nothing for incoming flights.....you couldnt make this stuff up. Hey though, there has only been a few months to plug that whole, what should we expect....
  3. No politics intended. Melbourne numbers are low. We are allowed out to 25k radius with no time limits. There are some opportunities to catch up more readily with family and friends. I really feel for those not just inconvenienced, but seriously affected by the circumstances here. Atleast this is (for now) heading in the right direction. And that seems like good news to me.
  4. Wow.....where do you work?
  5. I am a bit of a pessimist sometimes, so I am asking this in the hope of....being given reason to hope I guess. Im not asking the following with reference to politics, systemic issues etc.... But, if 1 individual action, from a pool of 4.8m Melbournians, has resulted in an entire regional town (or more) needing to go into a state of high alert / everyone get tested, what hope do we have of staying out of lockdown for more than a few weeks?
  6. Yep, GOOD workout. Same power on a less efficient bike means slower speed but still a good workout. Thats obviously not ideal if you are racing, but it probably doesnt matter if its a commute.
  7. 14.5hrs. Thats a big day at work.
  8. The positive to a heavier slower bike is you get a good workout in. Commute time wont vary by much in traffic either. No real cost. Low theft risk /damage risk etc. Good workout. Win, win, win.
  9. In all seriousness, if you are riding for commute in traffic, id be going the hybrid....and trying to find quieter roads. Tri bikes and traffic (from memory -its been a while) arent a great mix.
  10. Tri bike with a disk on the rear and deep front, integrated hydaration and tear drop helmet.
  11. Someone enter Dan into a parkrun so he can satisfy his personal need to see a challenge through. What an arrogant and selfish point of view. To him, this is a personal character test to "not walk away from a challenge". This situation is beyond serious and how he can maintain a view that he is best placed to lead Vic out of this mess that he oversaw, when not having a clue as to how it happened (until a fake enquirey tells him) is un f#$king believable. Its not about you Dan.
  12. Wait, it had to be a compelling answer....bonus point redacted sorry.
  13. Well, yes, cross country skiing is against the grain.....especially at Kona. Bonus point lol.
  14. So when the idea for Ironman was proposed by John Collins, my understanding was that (in jest I assume), it was to establish who were the fittest - open water swimmers, cyclists or runners. There is alot of data that must have been gathered over the years, but I have never seen this definitively answered. So lets hear it - bonus points for compelling answers that go against the grain....
