two peas, no pod in Canberra

By johnboy - 9 August 2006 61

The moderately influential bloggers, “two peas, no pod” are now self-identifying as Canberrans, everybody give them a round of applause.

Amusingly they don’t think much of our public transport but think they can be more stubborn than the ACT Government:

So either Canberra public transport has to get better or I have to buy a car. And while there may be scant chance of the former happening anytime soon, there’s even less chance of the latter happening. It’s me versus the state and I think I’m more stubborn.

I think they’ll find out they’re wrong.

What’s Your opinion?

And a hippy in a sit-down protest against the bus that never comes.

That’ll really show The Man where it’s at!

I see nothing bad about the environmental impact of the average recumbent rider after they have met the Mack truck… Atleast nothing that a dose of rain wouldn’t fix.

S4anta 2:16 pm 09 Aug 06

Ah, the environmental impact. That explains it then.

“Of course we could afford a car, it is the environmental impact that concerns us.”

It’s the noise it makes coming off the bullbar that really sets your teeth on edge, yeah?

We both grew up in Canberra, so we are hardly new at identifying ourselves as Canberrans.

Also, Paul was making more of a general point about the need for public transport to be improved in Canberra (you know, like having the odd bus run after 6pm on a Sunday) to allow people to be less dependent on cars, than he was about our own needs.

Of course we could afford a car, it is the environmental impact that concerns us.

Oh….

Why didn’t the lovely man at the computer shop tell me that?

I use mine mainly as recording desk with cakewalk….

S4anta 12:59 pm 09 Aug 06

Thumper, apparently a computer has more uses than p0rn.

Thumper 12:11 pm 09 Aug 06

Never heard of them, maybe I need to get out more.

Or is that, stay in more….

must quite a few others to declare them moderately 🙂

S4anta’s spot on – all recumbent cyclists are bone smokers.

johnboy 11:47 am 09 Aug 06

No influence on me, but other people link to them quite a lot.

snahon 11:42 am 09 Aug 06

Someone that the writer of said comments is moderately influenced by.

LG 11:27 am 09 Aug 06

what’s a moderately influential blogger?

S4anta 11:23 am 09 Aug 06

bone smoking recumbent(apologies for speling) cyclists.

Cars aren’t that expensive – they should quit their bitching. Still, if they have to walk, I can’t really see myself giving a shit.
