Melbourne is a place where everyone is woke about violence against women, yet many get bashed, raped and stabbed to death on their streets.

But would you let your daughter move there?
Seems to have gone rapidly downhill despite random "best place to live" results.

Gym memberships for women would be skyrocketing due to them feeling terribly unsafe going for walks/runs by themselves.

Not great.

A few days away from shooting up Veggie Bar on Brunswick St and then begging the judge for some handouts.
Still waiting on your in depth knowledge of these handouts we receive.
Anytime you're ready.
Oh, that's right. you're only here to fling s**t from the sidelines and add nothing of substance.
Typical woke, melbourne green nuffie.

Would blow a gasket trying to get a park on Brunswick street
You wouldn't know what a gasket was, let alone how to replace one.
Why would I want to drive in Melbourne?
One of the really, REALLY stupid things about the dump is the hook turns.
Who, in their right mind, goes to the very furthest left lane to turn right?
It goes against every tenet of common sense and safety.
But yeah, it is Melbourne after alll.

Don’t drive then, hook turns are basically the reason I don’t drive (too many of them and hard to do). Ride a bicycle like I do, easy to get to my job as a barista and it’s good for environment.

Do you ride 4 abreast and give the finger to motorists too?

Yeah, why wouldn't you?

I wouldn't say 'many' get stabbed or bashed to death.

Why is everyone suddenly acting like Melbourne is Chiraq or St Louisville?

Yeah! It’s only just a couple of women every few weeks that get bashed or stabbed and then dumped in a park. It’s no different to living in some of the other capital cities around the world like Port Moresby or Caracas in socialist Venezuela. She’ll be right!

The hook turn is a notable example of Melbourne ingenuity; a paragon of problem solving and traffic efficiency. Too often, your clear run through an intersection is disturbed by a knob intent on driving across traffic to get down some shady side alley and you're left languishing in stationary traffic at a green light. But with the hook turn, the inconsiderate right turners are shunted to the left, out of everybody's way and you're free to proceed through the intersection as if they weren't even there.

Simply a masterpiece of traffic management. Suffice to say, if you don't like hook turns then I don't ******* like you.

What happens when you get 3 or 4 people performing hook turns - wouldn't it just block up the left lane instead of the right?

Well, that's one way of looking at it. Meanwhile, the rest of the country just laughs.

fu** em, right lane is clear that's all that matters.

The left lane is usually blocked by peasants, sorry pedestrians, crossing the road anyway
