Friday 13th ♠️

Morning all.
Leaving work at 12 to travel up to Leeds for a work jolly; looking forward to it - bit of a rarity.
What you got?

What’s the spade got to do with Friday 13th?

Pretty sad there isn’t a hockey mask Emoji. We need to get on at them for that for horror stuff, eh @whiterussian?

I’m not rushing in, I need to take Gizmo to the vets this morning, so I’ll take my time going in after.

Looking at learning to drive now I’m in the country that invented a Mad Max dystopian future.

There’s an online test you have to take before you can get a learner’s licence so I thought I’d go through it and see how I did. Not too bad but this question:


And here’s the bit I can find in Chapter 2 mentioning this

So exactly why am I wrong? :thinking:

(Also, thanks to Revisionist History about the supposed ‘stuck accelerator’ issue I feel like it’s remiss not to state categorically that you should remove your feet from the accelerator.)

edit I would have picked both the first two but figured there was more chance of applying the handbrake resulting in a skid. The book says ‘carefully’ so maybe the test is just wrong?

It says carefully pull the handbrake not “quickly”.

I do know about pumping the brakes, but in an emergency I’d undoubtedly panic and end up doing a handbrake turn or something.

Oh you’re right.

I put handbrake and I thought I put pump the breaks. That makes more sense.

Cheers man.

Nah, I mean it’s my fault actually reading that image of what I put. I was sure I clicked the lower one which is why I even bothered to look in the book the understand why pumping the breaks first wasn’t the right answer! I must have had a brain whack out.

I actually got 28 or 32 without studying first including at least two Melbourne-specific nutty ones so that’s a start.

Can you guess
Oh I bet you can
Really pretty easy
But I might as well tell you
Yes I’m going to CORBY :star_struck:


I too am working until 9 :slightly_frowning_face:

Currently have a baby sleeping on me, I’m trying to trim her nails and we’re all listening to low.

PRESSING engagement?
