  1. I was thinking that perhaps they made the age-old mistake of setting their patrol areas to the relevant rides but forgetting to select the path in the middle. Seems as plausible as anything.
  2. It's really no better or worse than a lot of other discussions here. In some ways I find the dumpster fire (and picturing the meetings going on behind it) rather interesting.

    But where are you going to draw that line? Police are abused on the front-line daily. You couldn't possibly go into the job not knowing that. Should they be able to take work cover or sue every time someone says something hurtful? What about our armed forces - some of them are instructed to kill humans; should they also be able to turn around and say they have been wronged? I think in Australia we have a concept of what a reasonable person should expect from their role, and that's what people apply here. We expect that the likes of paramedics and nurses and surgeons will see human pain, suffering and gore far beyond the likes of what many of the rest of us are likely to encounter, and accordingly we expect that when you make that your career path you do so in that knowledge. That's in many cases why so many of these professions are respected and revered by the general public - regardless of what they are paid. Some people are going to find it harder in general or in specific cases than they bargained for, and for that we should support them - but does somebody else become legally liable for that? I'm not convinced.

    Mate, so much of what you're saying makes good sense, but the opposing view is that one way or another someone needs to be the person who comes to deal with that stuff, and we simply can't be in a situation where lawsuits come out every time someone needs to deal with it when that person has a reasonable expectation that they are going to encounter those types of situations. There's no real winner here.

    This came across, and I think I have a fair picture of what you were listening to. I'm really enjoying your coverage, and want to thank you very sincerely for providing this to us. We are very lucky, and I am sure that the majority of folk here will join me in thanking you for doing this.

    It sounds like she didn't do very much, or at least hold much interest in the organization.

    When I read/hear that sort of stuff it immediately makes me think they are not suitable for the job.

    Very, very arguably. JL3D (which I agree is a bit of a 'meh' ride) was of a better standard at install and remains at a higher standard today. Contrast to the BRC and you can enjoy; Filthy cars Broken speakers Mis-timed or completely disabled effects Moving effects with huge signs of unrepaired wear Breathtakingly low hourly capacity
  9. I reckon you'll find Dreamworld claim to run teams/pairs of mechanic/electricians. More teams = more fixy-fix.
  10. It does indeed seem to be the type of logic one might expect from somebody who had yet to start going to school.
  11. Nearly the whole day? Bloody hell, that's got to be at least three, maybe four cycles?
