# Travelling at 120 km/h, you're the slowest vehicle on the freeway.
# A bullet train is being introduced, but potholes can't be fixed.
# The last time you visited the coast you paid more in speeding fines and toll fees than you did for the entire holiday.
# You have to prove that you don't need a loan to get one.
# Prisoners, Doctors , Nurses , Traffic policemen and Teachers go on strike
# Parliamentarians sleep in Parliament if they are present .
# You don't stop at red traffic lights, just in case somebody hijacks your car.
# Petrol is more expensive than Beer.
#Saying you are black is affirmative, but saying you are white is racist.

And if I may add:

Red meat should be eaten at breakfast, lunch and dinner, all in between snacks and for dessert.

The pedestrian right of way means that pedestrians have the right to quickly get the hell out of the way of oncoming traffic. If the pedestrians fail to exercise this right in a timely manner, this is of no consequence to any drivers.

Stop lights, pedestrian right of way and speed limits are a goal and not a strict requirement! :)
Red meat takes Big Red at every meal (ketchup).

Mule deer and Colorado elk seasons almost done! Hunters driving farm roads, looking for racks, their PH driving them along, I ask that you not pull into my drive. The buck behind me, on the boundary line of the GMU somehow knows. The hunter laughs, I would invite you in to see my Searcy rifles but social distancing prevails, darkness arrives and the buck slides away into secret tree grove...

Many thanks for re formatting my article for the forum

I served my time in both the bush and during the bush war

I hope it did it justice

Education is where it is at - without it the wild places are history

You - sir - are well placed to make a difference
