Unless you've been living under a rock, or otherwise not paying attention to mainstream media, you'd have seen the uproar last week about how the new car crash testing programme ANCAP have labelled the new Ford Mustang one of the least safe cars available in Australia. Actually that's not quite what they said, it was closer to danger danger Mustang unsafe!

Amusingly Ford are a little miffed, as the Mustang scored quite well in US crash testing - better than the competitors from Chevy and Dodge to be specific. So what went wrong?

So many of my recent weekends have been the same:

Person 1: What'd you get up to this weekend, Brash?

Brash: Not much, spent most of it working on the 180.

Person 1: Driving it yet?

Brash: **angry grunt, followed immediately by dejected sigh** No, not yet but...

Person 2: (interjecting) What about all the other cars you've got?

Brash: Well...

And so on. And to be bluntly honest, I was fucking sick of it.

All my life I've wanted to have a massive car collection. For most of that time however, fate and logic have had other ideas. Then there was all those years of marriage where the promise of buying more cars was dangled carrot-like in the future provided certain other objectives were achieved first. But regular readers of these ramblings know how well those plans ended up. Oh well.

So who watched Channel 10's Peter Brock telemovie this week? Want to know what I thought?

It was pathetic.

Let's imagine for a moment that this blog was about footy. In whatever alternate reality this is, I'm doing a reasonable job in whatever ametuer league I'm involved in after a few years off. I'm not playing A's but I've got a good mate who is; he even trained with a SANFL team when we were teenagers but didn't continue with them for reasons that I don't remember.

I bet that I would complain about the fact that Aussie Rules footy is about the only major sport in the world where rules change just about every season, and how changes made to top level competition don't always filter down to our level, and I'd discuss the merits of said rule changes. I’d make a big deal about how good it is to see the Bulldogs take the Premiership this year, despite the fact that this is professional level sport and that we should be well beyond the ‘everybody gets a turn’ part of our lives.
