It’s been doing the rounds but we haven’t done it yet.

Does anyone know the story behind these pictures of a burning ACTION bus?

Looks like London mayor Boris Johnson has been exporting his incendiary buses to Canberra.

Looks like it might have been a lot more serious if this had happened in any other city. Like where the buses actually carry passengers.

[Sadly their 1150 pictures of Action buses does not extend to the old galah coloured ones of my childhood.

I remember those! Maroon and grey, kind-of. With leatherette seats… a yucky brown, I think.

The really disturbing thing is that actbus.net being the number one site suggests there are others . . . =-/

Speaking of traffic matters – Lyneham Shops pedestrian crossing on Wattle street has police markings and signs of a hard braking ending in the crossing – and a circled spot a little way away. Was someone badly damaged there in the last couple of days? Looked like it.

It says ‘midi bus’ on the side: you you think the alcohol from the driver’s midi was ignigted by his cigarette?

Personally, I would prefer to ride in a schooner bus.

clearly a pint bus is better

But a pint bus would be warm, whereas a schooner bus is nice and cold!

ah, but the warmth can be counteracted by drinking it quickly 🙂

all this talk is making me feel like one.. and a cigarette funnily enough

That’s what I get for trying to use correct punctuation. Take the full stop off the end of the URL – that’ll fix it.

i am disappointed by the mundane reason for the fire – why couldn’t it be another bus arson attack like that adelaide kiddies’ bus in civic a few weeks back? then rather than being known as the ‘bush capital’ we could be the ‘bus burnin’ capital’!
