      Drive safe dude, if you’re driving. Remember, going 140 instead of 120 only saves you 43 seconds per 10km and wrecks your liters/km…

        Will do, and I don’t drive fast, don’t see the point and laugh at the idiots slowing down at the average speed cameras.

          Lol πŸ™‚
          Best I ever saw : Was driving to Pte early one morning 1 year ago around 05:30 and on this one fairly long stretch of the highway there was construction going on with a 80 km/h speed limit. At two places there were temporary speed cameras. So I’m driving 120, slow down to 80 for the camera and speed back up to 120. The funny thing I noticed : the relative distance between myself and each car around me remained fixed the whole time…

            I love watching the people fly past at like 160 and then slow down at the average speed cameras, which are video cameras, and then speed up again. My mom’s friend did that and got a R15000 fine a week later.

            I am fortunate to own a DVD set with Bravestarr, the Movie. In it, there is also four episodes from the series. One was a hard hitting episode regarding drugs. I think that is the only Filmation cartoon that shows someone dying, and what makes it stand out more, is that a kid dies from a drug overdose…

    Dean Hawkins and Zoe Hawkins? That sounds like the perfect couple for one of those Silhouette Romance novels, you know, where the couple goes off on this romantic adventure to foil international terrorists or something…
    Just kidding. Nice photograph.
