As somebody who generally thinks the disability access rules are a damn good thing and can beat people with a cane if they try to obstruct me from doing something, I think the superstops are wasteful.

I never heard the lyrics properly before! I'd only ever heard it on the radio, but I dumped a The Who best-of onto my mp3 player a week ago, and that song came up as I was washing up tonight.

And bits of it are, yes. Which is why we shoot them, rip their balls off, and turn their scrotums into amusing little leather pouches to sell to tourists (and also me, who gives them to people).
Also, 'roos taste great. Low in fat, too!
wait so you guys are talking about real kangaroo balls?

The one thing I find funnier than Kangaroo balls is Kangaroo meat sausages.

we have new low-floored trains as well in boston. but what drives me fucking nuts is the wheel chair lifts that are ubiquitous, especially if it's a bus and not a train cause on the bus, another one inevitably goes past yours while you're stopped. i believe in theory in accessibility but damn it drives me crazy.
