Random Fluff Edition

I might have something more substantial tomorrow, as I don’t have my volunteering this week due to a lack of work that needs doing. I’m not going to make any promises though.

However, today, I have some random links that I’ve come across; think of it as a light version of my This was the Week that Was…

  • Apparently I can fly a commercial airplane legally. A study has shown that pilots who are on anti-depressants are no more or less a risk than other pilots.
  • It looks like the New Morrissey Express* is no longer in love with Morrissey. The singer is planning on suing the New Musical Express after not retracting a statement the magazine quoted to him.
  • Although the state of cricket in the US is in shambles (on the optimistic side), a new international-calibre stadium has opened recently in South Florida. Maybe the Stanford Twenty20 will have some matches up there.
  • While talking of leather and willow, Cricinfo’s Martin Williamson has come up with eleven politicians (other than John Howard) who were ardent followers of the sport.
  • Apparently in Thailand, men have a specific problem. Fortunately, politicians are there to help them rise above it; to much consternation for their opponents.
  • Did you lose some marijuana recently? If so, it’s available for pick up. The recovery fee is reportedly a free hotel stay. Word is, they have nice toilets, but the scenery could use some improvement. Also, the locks on the doors are quite strong. It’s not recommended. 😉

Lastly, a picture. This has to do with driving, to finally answer a question about the layout of right-hand-drive cars, particularly how the gear shift is laid out. Fortunately, Neil Crompton has provided us with a handy, cut-out-and-keep guide to the shift pattern of a V8 Supercar:

Cromley and his chalk. He was using the floor of a Holden team; didn’t make a difference for the race though.
I’ll stick to PRND21 thanks. At least for now. 😉
