Helicopters over Kaleen

By Deref 4 January 2014 23

They’re not all black.

But for some time now the helicopters have been overflying Kaleen.

Should I be worried? Should I be alert but not alarmed?


What’s Your opinion?

You’ve seen the Simpsons episode where Lisa has a rock that keeps Tigers away. The rock obviously works because there are no Tigers to be seen!

+1 for getting the reference. 😉 Wasn’t that brilliant – back in the days before The Simpsons had jumped the shark.

And so it should be.

The government’s introduced all kinds of important measures to protect us from the terrorists, including turning back their boats. We know those measures work because we haven’t been blown up.

We’ve dealt with the boat terrorists – it’s time that we dealt with the helicopter terrorists.

I’m pretty sure that’s what the Americans thought! You’ve seen the Simpsons episode where Lisa has a rock that keeps Tigers away. The rock obviously works because there are no Tigers to be seen! An unfortunate part of life is that if the baddies want to do something, they’ll do it! For example the bikie laws the Government have brought in are doing a bang up job…

You did say it came from Summernats…

Yeah, sure – it was just public ‘joyflights’…….sponsored by big pharma, the NSA, NRA, ABA (Australian Breastfeeding Association – they’re worse than Al Qaeda!), and the Illuminate.

I’ve seen “Zero Dark Thirty”: I know what goes on in the world, mate – and I know you’re working for “them”.

It’s just the Summernats Joyflights.

Don’t ask about the reason. Just follow this simple guide and all will be well.

Scouting locations for ‘Underbelly – The Canberra Connection’? (nothing against the fair Kaleen – just a general thought about some of the less than savoury things which seem to be going on around the town).

😀 If I wave at them when thy fly over, do you think there’s a chance I could get a part?

presumably NOT looking for people doing burnouts or speeding etc… No doubt they have a special “blind eye” for that.

By the way, I’m just stirring – I am not a SummerNats knocker – each unto their own.

Hmmm – plenty of possibilities there. Thanks. 🙂

If it’s a Robinson R44 (you can tell, they have a distinctive shape) then it seems to be doing work over EPIC during Summernats, and its rout is taking it out over Kaleen.

When was it rout-ed?

Not a big deal but..

the helicopters have been overflying Kaleen.

Flying over Kaleen? Or flying past beyond Kaleen (overflying)?

Ah, so it IS overflying, to get to EPIC. Thanks for the clarification.

Relax. It’s just the Federales using Infra Red sensors to look for grow houses. As long as you don’t have a huge hydroponic rig and 200 dope plants in your roof cavity you should be fine.

As long as they’re not after my raspberries!
