2 things:

1) Garden State is not a chick flick, at all. It's a great little film.

2) Are you drunk?

On my very first day of school, I was waiting for the schoolbus. Okay the school van.(Oh, the joys of living in the sticks) It was a Ford Econoline or something like that. Our family was mostly on the Chev side of things. My grandfather and others had taught me that Fords were pieces of crap.

So anyway, I'm standing there waiting and then it pulls up and I say.. very snarkly. "I ain't goin' to schoo in no Ford."

I don't know what it was with me either, even though I'm a proud Canadian.. when I was a kid I had this weird New England accent. Like I was from New York.. I sounded like a kid from NY

Still can't figure that one out.

Hey, this continent's going places! If PNG gets in the way, it's their own fault.

NZ can stay put down there and just ... ooze.

I just asked because you're making typos.

Well, sometimes you'll find trains or trams with their pants down ...! They're used to pick up electricity from the overhead wires.

I can't be arsed finding which of my own pictures illustrate things the best, so here's some from Wikipedia.

PANTOGRAPH



TROLLEY POLE



Melbourne used trolley poles until the 1990s, when they were replaced with pantographs, ostensibly due to superior reliability and the fact that a trolley pole has to be swung to face the other way when you want to change direction of travel.

I figured people would notice. I can concentrate enough to make a concerted effort to do so, but it's kind of a pain in the ass. I'm not drunk, per se, probably just buzzed, anyway. Seven shots of some kind of liquor in a friend's backyard.

Mazda FTW.
I like it when they fall to bits on the racetrack like Top Gear's mobile home race last night.
