Ahh, Those things. They are the ones that dont come for 30 mins then 5 of them will show up at the same time all going to the same destination and full.

 



Bus lanes fix that. Lack of bus lanes causes that. :-)

sorry I don't get the joke :(

 

 

Explanation of a joke for the "joker97":

 

- "Son was too humble to show-off and did not want to stand out from the crowd with their family wealth, farther on the other hand misunderstood and assumed that the sports car is too small to show-off so he bought him even more expensive commercial size bus (as used in public transportation)".

 

You may like the true story from another humble person, I've heard in Europe long time ago:

 

Person (A) was driving their Fiat Punto to play squash.

 

The other day person (B) arrived on their rusty bicycle. There were a lot of people in the court that day but nobody except of person (A) was willing to play with "that pathetic rusty bicycle owner".

 

So (A) & (B) played. And they played again few days later, and again.

 

But then that rusty bicycle malfunctioned and person (B) had to drive their top model Audi to play squash.

 

All of a sudden everyone in the court wanted to play with (B). Unfortunately for them (B) only played with the Fiat Punto owner (A).

That Leaf in red looks great. Just keep it quiet that your Jet plane is in the shed behind on that photo :-) and the construction machinery in the background are preparing runway for it :-)

Its making a very loud buzzing noise from under the hood. My limitations make it hard to really get in there to diagnose but its from the left side it could be an alternator bearing or a coolant system bearing. At circa 20,000kms it should not be developing these issues.

My neighbor has a Lamborghini. He took me for a run around the block the other day. Very nice.

 

When we got back, I thought I'd do the right thing and reciprocate, so I offered to take him for a ride around the block in my Corolla.

 

He declined.

 

How rude!
