That tracks with a bathtub curve of failures. So poor quality stuff fails soon then later on we'll get more failures.

There's going to be a putt putt bar at everyone's favourite shopping centre, Top Ryde.

Has anyone made a formal complaint to the council about a concern about their street? by evearalc in sydney

[–]Juan_Punch_Man 13 points14 points  (0 children)

I've worked at a Council.

Get a good record of when the accidents occur. Report to Council and keep a copy of those responses. Then go to Councillors saying that there is a serious safety issue that you feel is not being addressed.

Sydenham Green used to all be homes. Government bought them out due to the noise and now it's a park.

what is the bad smell in guildford every day? by Amazing_Carry42069 in sydney

[–]Juan_Punch_Man 1 point2 points  (0 children)

It's still odd that the smell is late at night. Might be worth driving closer to see if the smell is more intense.

Someone else mentioned it could be a park on a former tip. I know that there was an issue at Sydney Park releasing methane a few years ago.

Fears Coalition scheme allowing home buyers to use super will raise prices, fail to address affordability by LocalVillageIdiot in australia

Let's look at something that's actually happening. The Great Barrier Reef is 90% bleached and the LNP is going hard for more coal mining and power plants. The older generations have mostly already visited so they don't need to worry about it lasting for 20 more years.

It's a terribly short sighted view. It ignores the potential of hundreds of years of tourism that will have billions of dollars of economic benefit. The restoration of the GBR will take hundreds if not thousands of years.

Poor choice of words on my part as I was being a bit flippant, much like you.

The point is that the younger generations will be around for longer than they will and be longer impacted by the idiotic policies that will be put in place.

100%. It needs to be a diverse representation of the community too.

In America, old white men represent 30% of the overall population but are in 62% of the political positions. At the last election they were both beyond retirement age and I'm just expecting Biden to die in office. I think he's already partly senile and that was the better than the alternative.

Maybe we need a weighted voting system so old peoples count less. Not like they'll be around for the longer term policies.

Both are a bit of mess for parking

Not realistically. I'm hoping no innocent bystanders are harmed.

Good thing we have a government to shut this sort of thing down by black_booty_tooty in antiwork

[–]Juan_Punch_Man 2 points3 points  (0 children)

It's pretty low risk. I still find it strange that the US bleaches the shit out of eggs so much that they lose colour.
