It is so simple, but so effective. If any sort of spinal injury is suspected, it allows the Helmet to be pushed off by the internal bladder.

Like a lot of great inventions, its very simple, and yet very clever, and very well priced as well for something that could save your life.

Jetfire Heater

As we're living in a shed at the moment, and we needed a heater, I thought something a bit "industrial" would be ok. After some research, we purchased a "Jetfire" heater, which sure does throw out a lot of heat!

Trouble is, our shed is like 3.6metres high, so lots of warmth is a the top. Still, a HEAP better than no heater at all, with the nights getting closer and closer to 0C

Road trip

Had to travel yesterday for my Uncles funeral, 960km in a day isn't bad. On the way we stopped at a park and walked the dogs around for a bit, and found these massive moths on the back of the toilet block.

They look big and scary enough to make up quite a story:

Here you see the Australian vampire moth, known to suck blood from other less dangerour Australian animals like Kangaroos, Koalas, Tasmanian Devils and more.

Ban on the sale of youth off-highway vehicles

I've posted on my dirt bike website about this, but its worth promoting more (please crosspost, link, retweet etc).

The American Motorcyclist Association (AMA) has made available a video public service announcement (PSA) regarding the current ban on the sale of youth off-highway vehicles (OHVs), which includes motorcycles and all-terrain vehicles, intended for kids 12 and under.

Please view the video here, and take action if you are an enthusiast!
