I still remember my first visit, driving around smog ridden LA on the wrong side of the road & seeing a van with "24hr Rooter" painted on it. WTF :?

There's a night club in Waukesha, Wisconsin called Rooters -

I've played there a time or two - just guitar, mind you - but from the parking lot, you can look across the street and see the sheep barn at the Waukesha County Fair Grounds.

I'm passing along the best of American culture to try to elevate the standards of the Down Under.

I expected to see one attached to the front bumper of a car going in reverse down the salt at a high rate of speed, backing over a mile marker.

Chris, I was about to accuse you of being highly insensitive -- talking about discovering a cat "...attached to the front bumper of a car going in reverse down the salt at a high rate of speed, backing over a mile marker."   Then I realised you were talking about Freud's beer opening video.  Sorry. :-)

We need to find a way to chip the "anti-Jim Rockford" circuitry.  I'll get started on a work-around.

But it is easier on your neck - you can just watch the TV . . .
