Title: Over the line, Australia and its nany government getting in the way of dude life
Post by: Red Back Dragon Dude on May 07, 2014, 09:45:11 PM
Ok all i know i am still new here but from the land down under i gota say there are some rules that a dude just cant abide,

the "nanny" state here goes far and wide and though this dude abides most of it a few things just cannot be,

-Keeping your vehicle in "as new" condition
i am sorry but that i just cannot abide , it turns vehicle ownership into a hellishly expensive drain on a dudes lifestyle i love my car dudes it lets me get away into the country but its getting to the point where i cant afford it anymore because of the insane "as new" requirement.

-in victoria if you change a light bulb without an electricians qualification and get caught you can get a $20 fine
put simply when the dude needs to change a light bulb he changes it.

- no fun aloud
ok yeah you can take this one with a grain of salt but dudes its almost like we are under a ban on fun , no fireworks , no campfires , cant chill at one of the local rivers anymore after hours , heck there's alot more than that but dudes but i am losing my train of thought on that one.

-Bowling
in my town a dude has extremely limited options , its expensive as heck to go bowling here in the few places you can go to , ok so i am not sure whether its taxes , lack of approval or greed that is to blame for this but a dude needs to be able to bowl.

A new what?

That sounds like a loophole to me.
With some bondo and elbo grease anything could be accomplised.
Imaging a big turd, sort of like the oscar mayer hotdog mobile but a big steaming brown turd mobile.
How tough could it be keeping it looking like a fresh turd?
