Another Dark Little Corner

Started this before change to "New Blogger", as backup in case of trouble with digiphoto blog "In a Small Dark Room", or rants & links blog "Hello Cruel World" . Useful - at one stage Dark Room was there, but like the astrophysical Dark Matter, we could't see it ... better now, but kept Just In Case.

There is nothing. There is no God and no universe, there is only empty space, and in it a lost and homeless and wandering and companionless and indestructible Thought. And I am that thought. And God, and the Universe, and Time, and Life, and Death, and Joy and Sorrow and Pain only a grotesque and brutal dream, evolved from the frantic imagination of that same Thought.

Rejected Letter to an Editor  
NRMA applauds reduced bus lanes Rejected Letter to an Editor — Monday, 6th March, 2006
Why do those complaining about traffic congestion in the city want to reduce and make life harder for buses? One average bus takes the road space of three or four cars, but carries over 40 people. Nearly all commuter cars carry just one.

So cars take 10 times more road to transport the same number. Then they need 10 x space at destination to sit waiting all day for the next trip, instead of serving more people as buses do, and 10 x space at home overnight, at the shops, sportsgrounds, etc, etc. No wonder there's sprawl & congestion.

If people are to be persuaded out of the self-destructive addiction to cars, alternatives need to be usable, or political pressures will perpetuate our inevitable decline.
