    Report it to the police. They may have done it before and this could see some action taken
    (unlikely, but still a nice thought). Failing that... good luck finding their car. :)

    Once I was spat at (he missed), by someone in a car which obviously belonged to the local Holden
    dealer. (The number plate, and its surround made it completely obvious.

    I complained to them the next day. The only reason why I didint do it in person was that it was a
    Saturday, and they were closed when I went past

    Report it directly to the Bike cops. You will find a sympathetic ear and they do follow up. Try
    Russell Lindsay, Melbourne Bicycle Patrol Ph.9247 5517

  8. Done. Also the EPA have been informed of a "smoky exhaust" and throwing litter from a car.

    Had a twit do this to me while i was riding to the local video shop one afternoon. Instead of an
    apple it was an orange, got me fair square in the chest. For some reason i held on to it and
    pedalled on my way only to discover that the car pulled into the same video shop that i was going
    to. So he got his orange back spread over his windscreen and left under his wipers.

    Report it to the police. I have ducked a punch thrown out of the window of a moving car. I emptied
    my bidon in the guy's face at the next lights, he spat at me and I laughed ('cos I was already was I
    covered sweat...) I spat on him and said I reckon we were square. These guys drove off and threw the
    full coke at me but were bad shots.

    Anyway at the end of the confrontation I really felt like I should have reported it because it got a
    little out of hand. But hell it was interesting.

    Heya <Man> </pigs>, You (as I believe Young Folks These Days Say) rawk! because
    - (a little, but significant bit) you corrected the grammar error; and,
    - (not only, but mostly) numbered points 1., 2., and 3.

    I now dedicate tomorrow morning's commute's closing one nostril with a finger and blowing the mucus
    out the other nostril and then repeating this with the other nostril at the next set of traffic
    lights ("Sorry, mate, I didn't see you there") all over the car (containing, doubtless an example of
    the ~40% of the Australian population that is obese) that either
    a) almost wipes me out overtaking down the bike lane in a stupid(-lard)-arse attempt to save 10
    seconds from their 30 minute wait for city parking ; or,
    b) almost wipes someone in front of me overtaking down the bike lane in a stupid(-lard)-arse attempt
    to save 10 seconds from their 30 minute wait for city parking ; or,
    c) <insert your grumble here>

  13. Maybe I got back traffic karma after all the pedestrian "wait" buttons I've needlesly been
    pressing . The rage induced a 44km head-wind sprint in me in order to read the number plate.
    Suffice to say that a great many O2 molecules have been converted to CO2 molecues and electrons
    wasted in aus.cars when a leetle bit of respect for peoples choice of transport - polluting or not
    is taken into account.
    !! What am I saying ?? Whose respecting clean air and open space ?

  14. OK, I have read the recipe in the anarchists cookbook too, but have never tried it. I will give it a
    go today if I can find some sparklers. Will report back later tonight.

    8 parts rust, 3 parts aluminum... wooohoooo!!!

    Powdered iron + aluminium is called 'Thermite' right?

    I was reading about this somewhere (slashdot.org) in relation to destroying hard drives quickly. But
    that suggested it would have to be ignited with a magnesium taper
    - is a simple sparkler hot enough?

    Anyway, the crux of that story was that the heat generated is enough to melt through steel, hence
    destroying a hard drive or a cylinder head (which are mostly alu. these days anyway?).

    I don't think it would be very easy deploy from your bike... ;)

    -kt
     
  16. Didn't work too well. The sparklers were so crap I had to light 'em with the oxy. And it's hard to
    find enough rust and aluminum, and difficult to grind it up to powder form. Surely you can buy it in
    power form somewhere.

    Anyway, it didn't take off quite like I had hoped...

    Use steel wool. Doesn't even need to be rusty. You can light a ball of steel wool with a match. 0000
    works best as it's the finest.
