Raven and rubbish

As I went for a bike ride around Lake Ginninderra this morning I noticed a large flock of  Australian Ravens had gathered to feast on a disgusting amount of rubbish left behind by people who used the BBQ. (right next to Ginninderra College)

The state of the picnic ground was appalling; benches were trashed, bits of food were scattered around, the cooking plates were covered in a layer of burned fat, …

I don’t like this, show some respect for f sake!

What’s Your opinion?

I noticed a lot of Maccas rubbish

it is sad and astounding how often litter emanates from maccas – what does this say about the sort of folk who pay this insidious multinational purveyor of obesity any of their hard-earned..?

as for a collective noun for bogans: an ugh of bogans? a flannel of bogans? a winnie of bogans?

Now, if you could legally approach them with a .308, that would even things up a bit, but alas…

If you had a .308, you wouldn’t need to get all that close….

What is the collective noun for bogans?

A mully of bogans is a bit predictable, and not universal. Any thoughts?

When I see stories like this, the first thing I ask myself is ‘So would you have had the balls to say something to these pigs if you saw them walking away from the mess they made?” Good on you if you would, but so many people are too scared, too gutless, they’ll make a big song and dance about the problem from the safety of their armchair but when it comes to making a stand it gets all too hard.

Problem is, I suspect it was a group of bogans who did this, and I doubt they would have any qualms about ganging up and bashing an individual, over the relatively trivial issue of litter. It’s one thing to approach an individual male. It’s another to approach a group of males. Even if you’ve trained for several years in a martial art, that scenario is high risk/little reward and you would do better to walk away from it. Now, if you could legally approach them with a .308, that would even things up a bit, but alas…

I remember parking in the Shell Servo at Fyshwick (the one with the Hungry Jacks in it) and I noticed in the car beside me was a baby in a car seat. There was no-one else around, I looked around and no-one came over to see what I was doing as I was making it quite obvious that I had noticed this baby in the car. After a couple of minutes I proceeded inside, on my way there some bloke wandered over and told me the child was his and not to worry. I proceeded to give him a serve and he got all defensive and angry, threatened to beat me up and that he ‘knew how to look after kids’.

I could have taken the easy option and walked off shaking my head but stuff that, I gave him and his wife , who was busy inhaling a whopper, an earfull and to wake up to themselves. Babies can easily choke on things like dummies, squirm themselves into situations where they choke to death on seatbelts and just because you are watching the back of your car from the other side of a car park doesn’t mean squat, you’ll get back to the car and find a dead baby!

The moral of my little rant, well it’s all very easy to complain later on but if you don’t make a stand when you see something wrong, then you are part of the reason why society is going down the toilet. Step up and set the standards and shame these pigs in front of all and sundry, if your’e scared of a confrontation then best you stay at home.

I’m sure you would have doen the right thing but sadly you’d be in the minority, nowadays.

A step down from the “murder” that crows get.

… I noticed a large flock of Australian Ravens had gathered …

The collective noun for ravens is an unkindness.

They must have been on a cross town rampage. On arrival at work this morning in Fyshwick I noticed a lot of Maccas rubbish near my car park. Outrageous!!!

So this particular site affects you, or do you just not know about the rest of the wanton littering around Canberra after any weekend?

I’d rant about parents not teaching their children values, but hey, this is Canberra!

…correction on re-reading… It doesn’t change the fact that the owners of this disgusting display are bogans for leaving it there.

troll-sniffer 10:03 am 07 Jun 10

Unfortunately it’s the cost of having to share our oxygen with the bogan element of our tolerant society. Perpetrators need not necessarily be obvious bogans in their appearance, we have all seen any number of facets of society leave messes like this. It doesn’t change the fact that the owners of this disgusting display aren’t bogans for leaving it there.

Fact is they are bogans displaying bogan behaviour and no amount of preening and parading their gloss enamel exteriors, inside they are of true bogan stock.

This is pathetic. Its not as if there isn’t bins around. Shame that people dont get booked for this sort of thing. You would hope that at least the rangers would be empowered to do this in some way. Catching people out I guess is the trick.
