In Other News – 21 January 2016

1 min read


What this week has taught me more than anything is that I really do need a time machine. I want to do this, and this, and play that, oh and this, AND that too. Dammit, I’ll never have enough time for ALL the things. If I had to choose though, sleep would win every time. Ok bye it’s naptime!

    If anybody on here lives in Fishhoek or Glencairn. Good Luck, hoping for the best.

    For the fucknuts blocking the roads with their cars move them, let the fire trucks through.

        Yes metrorail train caught fire this morning in Glencairn spreading rapidly.

        First row of houses already catching fire.

          I really hope it wasn’t arson.

            Looks like it was on the rail line not in a station. Very likely Metrorail incompetence and lack of maintanance

            Possible. Either way, it’s quite terrible.

            I’ve often seen little fires on the train line next to the N1 going into town just before the Koeberg interchange. Don’t clear the bush away from the tracks properly.

            Friend’s daily commute is on Metrorail, he says wheels locking up on carriages and catching fire is a regular occurrence. Very little preventative maintenance being done.
