Home phone rang, yet-another-indian-call-centre #scam, from "Telstra disconnecting my internet line". Strongly accented woman with bogus "linda miller" name. I asked her politely, "Is your mother proud of the work you do with this scam". Oo, touchy. "YOU SHUT THE FUCK UP!" ...and hung up on me
metric australia imperial relic
we (Aus.) changed to metric between 1964-74, so over 45 yrs ago, but there are still imperial measurements around - yesterday I passed an industrial site with a "Speed limit 8km/hr" sign, a brand new sign. When we went metric some of the limits were directly translated, whereas now people would, and do, pick a 5 or 10km/hr limit -- they're all pretty much moot, most people drive through them at around 20km/hr regardless of any "walking speed" speed limit
