If the McDonald’s franchisee was a “her”, I don’t think she would have been able to have “creamed her pants”. Last time I checked my biology textbooks, only men produce semen.

….or was that a figure of speech, Screaming Banshee??

Clearly you have never had a woman excited.

Perhaps a little greased lightning will help you to understand.

Im just disappointed the new caltex doesnt stock e85 … Ill need to cruise to Nicholls to top up.

With the huge success of the Citycruise last year with 15000+ spectators i expect that this year to be bigger and better 😉

The new mcdonalds franchisee must have just creamed his/her pants.

Does anyone know how much next year’s ‘nats are going to cost us?

Gross.

Wish they would ban it.

Seems a fairly major announcement to be made during the caretaker period prior to the election.

Maybe Labor finally realised that there are more AMP supporters than they had counted on.

LOL what the hell? I live on the southside and could be quite unaware it was even on if I chose to do so. As could about 95% of Canberra I’d guess.

I assume the spin doctors will be along shortly to tell us about the economic benefits the event brings to our city. I mean heck, what is a few assaults combined with the entire city having to change it’s habits and general feelings of safety, when the city is drawing a huge fictitious financial windfall from this “Event”?

Please someone put an end to this madness?

LOL. The same hysterical argument could be made for Floriade.

Really? The only change I’ve made to my habits is to spend a bit *more* time out and about over the summernats weekend in order to see nicely restored cars cruising the streets, for free. Not once have I ever felt unsafe doing so.

The entire city has to change its habits? The pedestrian lights on Comm Ave during Floriade are more of an inconvenience during my daily routine than the Nats. And given the number of nose-to-tail accidents I saw a couple of weekends back it’s probably more dangerous too.

They should have announced this on “Tits out Tuesday”

BelcoMan, got stats to back that up?

What habits do you believe you have to change?

When 100,000 people come along to an event, do you believe they dont spend any money? It’s be biggest event of its type in the Southern Hemisphere, and I’ve actually got friends flying over from Europe and the united States this year for it (friends from Europe its their 3 consecutive time) … but yer … they dont spend any money
