Interesting images to scroll through… peak hour? What peak hour?
(Also makes road rage look somewhat silly, when you see how tiny the people are… and imagine them shaking fists and fingers at each other from a distance of 20 paces)
We all create it ourselves, of course… then spend a fortune biggering and biggering and biggering the roads to cope…
We had lived for some years with no car when we lived inner city Brisbane. Then survived with 1: but because we have moved and don’t have public transport where we now live – and have ended up with 2 cars… how do we change the dynamic?
If we wait for governments / councils to make the change for us – they can point to lack of patronage meaning everyone is happy with maintaining the status quo – meaning bigger roads.
What change could we each make, which might effect a large change overall?
I meant no harm. I most truly did not.
But I had to grow bigger. So bigger I got.
I biggered my factory. I biggered my roads.
I biggered my wagons. I biggered the loads
of the Thneeds I shipped out. I was shipping them forth
to the South! To the East! To the West! To the North!
I went right on biggering… selling more Thneeds.
And I biggered by money, which everyone needs.
