I don't think that the stick man will burn too well this year.

Burning Man crowds fleeing as weather chaos leaves festival goers 'catching hypothermia'.

Burning Man festival-goers are said to be desperately trying to flee the Nevada desert campsite as drastic weather conditions are wreaking havoc on the iconic event.

The annual event's organizers have urged those inside to conserve their food and water supplies as vehicles have been halted from entering the site. However, some are urgently seeking warmth and bitter winds and torrential rainfall leaves a number of people in attendance at risk of hypothermia.

The event normally sees festival-goers bask in the glorious Nevada sunshine in Black Rock Desert, but this year is the polar opposite after the site has been turned into a mud bath.......
Stay dray and warm.

Maybe they should talk to the folks at Worthy Farm about planning for swamped car parks & access roads....

Normally it’s dry this time of year. The weather patterns are different this year.

It got sunk in 1 river, fixed, sold and then trucked 1750km through the outback only to sink again. Will it ever stay afloat?

I reckon that that could just be the best of reality IMHO.

He must of had a good night, but he's having a bad day now.

Adelaide man charged after allegedly driving stolen scissor lift down Hindley Street.

An Adelaide man has been charged after being caught riding a stolen scissor lift down a popular Adelaide party strip this morning.

At about 4am, police security officers who were monitoring the CBD's CCTV saw the 26-year-old driving the scissor lift down Hindley Street, according to police.

Police said the vehicle was stolen from a construction site before it was driven along King William Street, Currie Street and Leigh Street.

The Lightsview man returned a blood alcohol reading of 0.138.

He was charged with illegal use of a motor vehicle, drink driving and driving an unregistered and uninsured motor vehicle.

He was also issued with an instant loss of licence for six months.

He was bailed to appear in Adelaide's Magistrates Court in November.

A Catholic Priest and a Rabbi were chatting one day when the conversation turned to a discussion of job descriptions and promotion.

"What do you have to look forward to in way of a promotion in your job?" asked the Rabbi.

"Well, I'm next in line for the Monsignor's job." replied the Priest.

"Yes, and then what?" asked the Rabbi.

"Well, next I can become Bishop." said the Priest.

"Yes, and then?" asked the Rabbi.

"If I work real hard and do a good job as Bishop, it's possible for me to become an Archbishop." said the Priest.

"O.K., then what?" asked the Rabbi.

The Priest, beginning to get a bit exasperated replied, "With some luck and real hard work, maybe I can become a Cardinal."

"And then?" asked the Rabbi.

The Priest is really starting to get mad now and replies, "With lots and lots of luck and some real difficult work and if I'm in the right places at the right times and play my political games just right, maybe, just maybe, I can get elected Pope."

"Yes, and then what?" asked the Rabbi.

"Good grief!" shouted the Priest. "What do you expect me to become, GOD?"

"Well," said the Rabbi, "One of our boys made it!"

It's even worse than it first appeared.
Libya floods wipe out quarter of the city of Derna, officials estimate a death toll more than 5,000
Thousands of people have been killed and at least 10,000 are missing in Libya after floods caused by a storm that burst dams, swept away buildings and wiped out as much as a quarter of the eastern coastal city of Derna.
A senior medic in Derna told Reuters that more than 2,000 people were dead, while eastern Libya officials cited by local television were estimating a toll of more than 5,000.

Feel a need for speed? How about 0-100km/h (62.5mph) in under 1 second?

I got close to that on a 1984 Suzuki GS1150ES, you had to hold on real tight, that bike is a rocket, but with the right rider it was a 10 second bike in the Quarter Mile...

Warp power indeed...

This is what my old '87 was like when ready for a ride day at Eastern Creek Raceway (I hope that he just washed that and it just water dripping below).


With a bit of engine and exhaust tinkering the black biatch put out 148bhp at the back wheel on the dyno and could pull low to mid 9's down the standing quarter, though back tyres didn't last very long. Below 6500rpm and it was a quiet bike, but once you went past that all hell broke loose big time. :-D

Cheers.
