    I don't think he will. What is the point? Too much pressure on the Captain. Where he is, he can go out, bat like a maniac, and relax when he is not needed.

    Cummins will be the next captain.

    I called crap on it at the time. The size of the heat exchangers, and the way the pipe work looked (not to mention the radiators heating the rooms on the tour) probably fools the layperson, but I...

    Chernobyl. Probably the best thing I have seen this year. It's on Foxtel on Demand, or on #BT.

    I tried to get into Catch-22. I was pretty tired when I tried watching it, so I might try again.

    Musk is a fuckwit who needs to keep his mouth shut. The removal of him, and installation of someone with a car manufacturing brain would be a step in the right direction.

    Australia was one of the only car manufacturing countries without decent Tariffs on imported cars. That is because of the Button Plan, introduced when Hawke was Prime Minister.

    Wake me up when an EV takes 5 minutes to charge, with a range of 1,000 KMs. Until then, I’ll keep buying Diesels.

    I bought it with about 95,00 KMs on it, and when I disposed of it, it had just shy of 300,000, two head gaskets and a new gearbox. Was an awesome car for when I needed it though.

    What can they defend?

    They don't actually make a car, and are at the mercy of at least three companies (Daewoo, GM and Peugeot) to supply them with cars.

    The sport is dead unless it comes back to free to air.

    The same for the T20 Big Bash - not having all games/matches/fixtures on FTA is suicide for niche sports.

    My brother has one. Biggest POS I’ve driven in a while. Nil power, and a CVT makes for a dreary drive. If they released a turbo one it might be slightly more interesting.
