  we have signs in australia that say 'bloody idiot'

its because of this campaign that was all 'drink and drive? bloody idiot'

or something

and in queensland (which is like the backward hick state, no offence), there's signs next to the marked pedestrian crossings saying 'give way to traffic' which, to me, means its just like every other place in the road. except stripey.

  A couple of years back, I was on a holiday where I drove from Darwin to Alice Springs, and as I neared Alice, I passed a sign which said "Tropic of Capricorn". There was a surreal feeling then.
