On Saturday the scientologists opened a new facility at the old site of the Sisters of Mercy college in MtAlexander Road. I am no fan of the scientologists and I was disgusted to see both Robert Doyle and Justin Madden were in attendance. Doyle even gave a speech. Yuck!

I took this picture on my phone late last year:

It's a "station" for the Melbourne Bike Share scheme. According to the pricing page, I start to incur extra costs if I have the bike away from a station for more than thirty minutes. Can someone please explain what I would do if I came across a fully loaded station (as above) and was thus unable to dock the bike when my ½ hour was about to expire?
Based on the iPod app, there are stations with no available docks as I type!

I'm very impressed with the efforts to bring the Olympics to Hobart. I may even buy a t-shirt.

This item from the SMH is already vying for the title of most beat up piece of fluff for 2011:
Spector's rage over Richards book.
Do your darndest not to laugh at it when you get to the end.

Semi and me are both real big fans of JR but I hadn't come across this before.

All done and dusted according to Imre Saluszinsky. Well done all of us including Al Gore and Tim Flannery. We've beaten this bitch.
Onwards to more pressing concerns.

Just saw one of these down the local shops. Had a quick chat with the rider/driver about the current legality of such and he told me that if you have a recognised disability it is a recognised alternative to wheelchair/scooter -- go figure! (makes sense but, which is probably what surprised me the most)

I'm the operator with my pocket calculator. I played one of those in a band once (a stylophone, not a German).
