"After the first few hundred thousand, I was getting bored with antivaxxers. I wanted a little bit of retro/nostalgia fun."

I get triggered by speed bumps too.

Why is it always a vest? Wouldn't an explosive blazer be more fashionable and appropriate?

Good question. But in a warm climate like Australia, as in the Middle East, an explosive vest might be more comfortable..

By the way, why was  an Australian soldier wearing an explosive vest?

A few hundred meters is a long way for a car to travel down a suburban street without hitting anything after the driver explodes.

That last president in Iran preferred tuxedos, didn't he?

I know these are crazy times with people oppositionally defying health and safety protocols, but wearing explosive clothing seems a bit extreme.

Dandenong's a bit out of town.  Town being Melbourne, which is already a bit out of town.

Modelled by our last Prime Minister but one.

He went to my school.  Very high cretin ratio.

Seven described the driver as a former soldier and a father.

I was wondering what happened to that kid. I figured AL shipped him off to sweatshop to make shoes.

Maybe he had a manifesto we aren't being told about.  Or at the very least a problem with someone where ever it was he was headed, and some people got a very lucky reprieve. Is there ever a good reason for someone to be wearing an explosive vest?

My favorite is still the terrorist that was using a cell phone detonator (call it to set it off), and had the phone on on the way to his destination. He was killed by spam from his mobile provider, in the middle of nowhere, taking no one with him. :)

Since this is an Aussie thread, happy invasion day fellow Aussies.

And if that's not to your liking I'll keep strictly historically conservative: happy New South Wales day, the rest of the country be buggered.

I'm sure no other Farkers will choose to argue with these positions, being excellent folks as they are, but should anyone feel the need please bring it on.

First question, why are you getting a tailor job in a moving car?

"The circumstances surrounding his death are under investigation by the Arson and Explosives Squad and it is not being treated as suspicious," police said.

Alrighty then.

Hang on let me check my Fark manual - hmm... let me go read two internet articles on it and explain why you're wrong!

For *these* guys, I'd recommend jockey shorts.

They'll need to rack up a *hell* of lot more of these before I'll relent on phone spammers!
