Hahaha, that's hilarious.

I hope somebody's taken George Bush to view that portrait.

Not sure what that was about.

We got a fake bomb threat at work today... I stood around for 2.5 hours while they searched the building, but it was a hoax. No shock there, I'm sure our building's not a likely target for a serious bomber. It was nice to not work for a while, but fairly tedious and an enormous waste of time from the company's veiwpoint.

I had that theory about staying awake and sleeping on the plane... I hope it works better for you than it did for me.
so what about if you're using someone else's car? here everyone has the same plates, except vanity plates and plates with special designs for charity, and then your license indicates your restrictions, whihc only exist for 6 months and then there's some under 18 ones.

wow. crazy.

i am planning to eat at home, too, so i won't even need food. problem is i booked the flight rather late so i got a shit seat (aka not window) so i'd be disturbed at mealtime anyway. i'm getting to the airport super early in hopes of changing to a window. i fucking hate aisles.

Oh, three years on the green Ps now? Whoops... I thought they were copying the NSW model exactly, I guess they had to make it look like they came up with some of the idea themselves.

It's not actually a licence plate, just like this:



Hope you get to change to a window, I hate having random people walk all over me to get to the toilet or whatever too.

I think the NSW model is green first, then red, which is probably why the red is for noobs and the green not. I'm probably wrong though, I don't know much about NSW and I'm very glad for that.

Whoops, I forgot to explain what P plates actually were... and I think Maj. did that for me just then.

They're separate to your number plate, and you can stick them in the windows (or onto the car's boot/bonnet/trunk/hood if you get the magnetic ones. Except if you have the magnetic ones, don't leave them on all summer cos they won't come off again without leaving bits of plastic magnet stuck to your car).

See, I insist on an aisle seat unless I know all the people between me and the aisle. I don't like disturbing other people if I need to get up.

It's basically a way to broadcast "HEY PEOPLE, I'M A NOOB SO I MIGHT CRASH LOL!" to everyone in a not-so-obvious manner.

Ok, the question is: Do I go with a mustang convertible or a jeep wrangler for my vacation car?

I got my licence in Canberra, which has different rules to NSW, but I checked NSW rules cos I wasn't sure if I was supposed to abide by them while driving through there or not. Red P platers in NSW are limited to 90kph... which took me a bit longer driving home one Christmas, but I got great fuel efficiency!

ah, so you just have to cart it around.

definitely would get in the way of actually sleeping. though i think i'm in the middle block so if i'm passed out they can go the other way. but still. ugh. :fingerscrossed:
