Small item in today's "Daily Telegraph" reports that last week in Richmond, NSW, glass doors were smashed in and an ATM dragged out by a 4WD Toyota Landcruiser - bet it had a nasty, bad, selfish, bullying bullbar too!

So where's our mate Harold Scruby when he's needed. He can now start another campaign along the lines of "4WDs, especially with bullbars, are a threat to the security and wellbeing of our financial institutions and personal savings and should be banned".

Guess we could also have a ban on 4WDs within 200 metres of ATMs, Banks and financial institutions.

By the way -- this is not a Friday Funny on Wednesday.

I had a lady tell me off for blocking her vision when I parked next to her at the shops last week. Perhaps we could ban them from within 200m of all car parks as well.

At least the story in the daily telegraph gives some credit to cruiser drivers. The last ATM pinching episode I heard of involved a holden ute. They managed to pull the thing from the ground, and loaded it into the ute's tray, only to accellerate off too hard and have it bash thru the tailgate and fall to the floor. This was repeated twice more with them getting out of the car, loading it back up again, taking off to fast and have it slide off the tray again.

You can ban cars from places, but you cant stopbleeps driving them.

Surely that wasnt in Kal?? last time i checked every 3rd vehicle just about was a 4by parked along the street. If so poor old darl better find somewhere else to live before she has a nervous breakdown. Last smash and grab of an ATM I remember was at Hannans Boulaverd with a loader flogged from Croesus (I think) and trammed in from Bindooli way

Yeah- it was in Kal. At woolies car park.
It left me scratching my head.
I cant really argue though- at least she was trying to look. Most of the dicks around just clean reverse out into the oncoming traffic. Its a wonder I havent seen any major smashes on Hannan St yet.

I heard something about that loader.... I didnt hear it was a croesus one though. Wouldnt really surprise me given the short distance between binduli site and Hannan St. If you're going to do something, do it properly eh?

The Space Shuttle goes from standing still on the launch pad to more than 17,000 miles per hour in just over eight minutes. That means the astronauts go 2,000 miles per hour faster every minute.

That clock doesn't include the holding periods when the clock is stopped.
They hold the countdown when doing odd jobs such as loading the fuel and making sure the driver isn't over .05
Launch is actually 12hrs away

T-6 and holdong now, about 10hrs to launch.

This built-in hold typically lasts two hours.
Launch team verifies no violations of launch commit criteria before loading the External Tank with propellants
Clear pad of all personnel
Chill-down of propellant transfer lines
Begin loading the External Tank with about 500,000 gallons of cryogenic propellants
