Just read the paper , which had an arrow pinpointing where the Winmar statue is going at Optus stadium.
It seems a very odd and not so prominent spot to put it. When the trees that already surround the spot mature , it will be extremely hard to see / find. It's away from the stadium , in the parklands surrounding it , on the river side , well away from where the large majority of people enter the arena. It is near the pub though.

Now this is awesome...

This simple Aussie pollution solution is taking the world by storm

I went to Malaysia more than 25 years ago, and it was notable how many plastic bags were littering the place there. My mates an i noted that you bought a can of coke, and they give it to you in a plastic bag.

I was almost dismayed when the same thing happened in Thailand last year. " No, no bag ..no bag... " still got the bag for my can of coke.
That sock is a handy thing, but who are the assholes dropping all this crap in the first place?

Subjectively i think Australia has more people littering than in the past.
Do we need a public guilt advertising campaign? Tougher fines or what?

Maybe we just need parents to mentor their kids better and set the example.

Maybe society as a whole can become mindful that we have to livecwith each other and there drive community standards.

Or we just copy Singapore and give offenders the cane.

No doubt, then we can wait 20 years and see if we did it right and if its working.

Whatever mate.
My place backs onto a busy enough road, its constantly strewn with litter along the edge. You came up with the big "mentor the kids thing".
For a lot of people that's duh!!!.
For the people throwing their macca's out the windows, i guess they aren't going to be great mentors.

So yeah "whatever mate" !! Labor party will fix it. :drunk:

I actually think regarding looking after the earth kids have us covered by a fair way. Maybe they should be talking to us

Some do, we had some little campaigner chuck all her rubbish from her school lunch over our fence and other stuff up the street. Dumb ass had peeled her blazer label with her name and Melbourne Grammar on it. I was going to call the school then thought thats the sort of dumb **** I'd have done at that age.

My wife being a crazy psycho bitch saw some young bogan guys open their car door on Carlisle street and drop the bags of rubbish in the gutter. She picked it up and threw it in their window and told them they were ******* pigs. I thought she was going to get me bashed but they were in shock.

She also yelled at some guy spitting in a park on the playground. He shat himself, she's a handful.

I can’t work out if Michelle Pfeiffer is extremely hot or not. Circa 1995-2000.

I’m watching What Lies Beneath and haven’t really put her on my to do list. But there’s a few scenes in this that have grabbed my attention.. I missed the boat.
Are you that good. Put them on your to do list and they do you. Amazing.
