It's semi-regularly scheduled, but i haven't been lucky enough yet.

That sounds worryingly plausible ...

I'm glad it's damn easy to tell most planes apart!

"No no no, it isn't an A319 because it has two overwing exits, so it has to be an A320....unless it's one of the A319s Easyjet fly that have two overwing exits because of the higher density cabin layout"

Oh maaaan. I'm listening to a bootleg of Porcupine Tree's concert in Sydney right now. This is remarkably good quality.

I wonder if I'll hear myself? Before Way Out Of Here, SW announced that they were going to return to some material from Fear Of A Blank Planet because that's what they believe most people here know PT from. So I yelled at the top of my lungs "PLAY MORE STUPID DREAM!"

The trams are mostly easy. I've only known one person who couldn't tell apart the Z and B classes, but Kate never was a very perceptive person. I can only tell apart Z1/Z2 and A1/A2 trams by their numbers, though. They are visually externally identicable, and internally too in the case of Z1/Z2 trams. The A1 and A2 trams slightly differ internally, but I rarely ride them so I haven't yet learnt to recognise this difference.

I need more band shirts. I have three U2 shirts, one PT shirt I got on Sunday, and that's it.

Besides, planes have almost as good phallic imagery as trains do

Wait, isn't she meant to convert you to the dark side, not the other way around?

I don't think trains have anything that can top a cockpit.

The railway: bringing passengers, mail, and DEATH AND DESTRUCTION!

Sounds like it would've been pretty fascinating actually.
