Yeah, there's graffiti through the interiors of the trams too. Some really nasty stuff carved into a number of the older trams.

There's this picture of Penrose railway station on Wikipedia. Who the FUCK would want to ride the train to or from here? I wouldn't! I'm glad it's been cleaned up since this.

Huh, that's cool. I wasn't aware they'd done that.

The only dodgy graffiti i've seen in a bus here is one that said "Fuck the Crips"

All i thought was, what a wanker. Seriously. Like anybody on a Howick and Eastern bus gives a fuck about the crips.

And yet they were still fairly good in 1977.

I still wish they'd play in the Auckland strip. It's SuperWin.
Shit, that's terrible. That's even worse than what happened to rugby in the US. Apparently before World War I, rugby - and by that, I refer to the pre-union/league split sport - had a good deal of popularity in the western states and Kiwi and Aussie teams touring England would play there on their way home.

Then World War I just killed interest in it and it never achieved a resurgence.

This is sad, but i'm going to proceed anyway.

I have an airband scanner so that i can listen to air traffic around here.

A Royal Brunei flight is inbound now. The lady pilot on the radio for Royal Brunei sounds hot.

Bugger.

Apparently the Yanks are the reigning Olympic champions in rugby, 1924 i think.

That's just stupid.

I've seen anti-Jewish graffiti once, on a tram that appropriately was based at a depot running services through St Kilda/Balaclava, where there's a huge Jewish population. I believe it has the largest amount of Holocaust survivors of anywhere outside Israel.

One that made me laugh was this tram where some idiot had gone through it carving "FVCK" into various places. If you're going to be pointlessly crude, why self-censor?!

Although her voice isn't remotely as attractive as the Kiwi girl who seems to work Approach/Departure late some mornings.

I need a scanner for the trams and trains.

Let's face facts, if you're getting your kicks through graffiti you really aren't going to be an intellectual high achiever.

Yup, I think that's correct.

Though I hear rugby's being very seriously considered for re-admittance to the Olympics in 2012 or 2016, as softball/baseball has been ousted. I wonder what code they'll use? Given the Commonwealth Games' example, sevens would probably make the most sense.

It'll be good for the Olympic gold to come to New Zealand, where it rightfully belongs.

Kogarah Jubilee Oval, half home of St George Illawarra.

Currently zero home of them, but only for this year.

I'm just going to say it. More countries playing softball/baseball have more chance of winning than countries playing rugby. It seems lose-lose, as interesting as it would be.



Aw, Royal Brunei is going off frequency now. Great voice and accent though.

Another one of my beloved Z3s at the intersection of William and Collins Streets.
