And while the hateful madness sometimes occurs here too, it generally is of a level such that it can be controlled with that great madness response tool mentioned on this forum before, the blue plastic milk crate.

The blue plastic milk crate?...not much of a weapon!...though in the right/wrong hands I suppose it could be...
Still not in the same league as the Aussie length of 4x2 timber, and chunk of pipe.
or fists even!

ahhhhhh, or maybe its a chill out tool, plant ones arse on the blue plastic milk crate and just kick back for a while and let problems go tnrough to the keeper.....
Weve just solved the worlds anger problems!
Mass production and export of blue plastic milk crates!
Mines grey but has the same calming effect��

And here I was making a "serious" comment on the end result of the different level of personal armament in a couple of countries, due to different social attitudes and national legislation............
https://www.nbcwashington.com/news/n...539525381.html

But I like the idea of chilling out sitting on a milkcrate, and have often done that sitting around in the shed looking at various bikes, remembering past good times and contemplating new ones yet to come; and I will admit that watching Easy Rider too many times in my misspent youth changed the course of my life. Suddenly I wanted to wobble off into the sunset on a flame painted Harley, straight line down desert highways, fill up a swimming hole with naked hippie girls, but still be able to have the protective colouring of driving around in an American style pickup (which were pretty rare in Oz in 1970). So I did, with a Sportster, the Obi Obi creek, and my now long gone International AA 110.

Yes I must admit seeing Easy Rider as a 13 yr old at the now defunct Scarborough picture theartre when it first came out set the stage for my mispent youth, as did reading Hunter S Thompsons 'Hells Angels' at the age of 14.
" faster faster ever faster, till the thrill of speed overcomes the fear of death".
Steppenwolf, the Stones, Sabbath, Led-Zep, Alice Cooper, and acid rock band Hawkwind, Deep Purple, and Aussies Daddy Cool with Eagle Rock, Masters Apprentices, etc
all sculpted my attitudes and tastes and desire to Get my motor runnin'
Head out on the Highway,
Lookin for Adventure.
for I was indeed Born to be Wild!

Hoo Boy, the above points out all too well the generational differences in the lives of you two Aussies (and many others here) and yours truly. Just the music alone crates a huge chasm not only in years, but cultures. The music I grew up with and influenced me was played before, during and after WWII. My mom's favorite singer was Buddy Clark - look that up. because I'm certain you never heard of him.
I got to witness the jazz age, the swing era and the birth of rock and roll. In the 1950s, Portland was a test market for music and movies, so I heard a saw what those outside never did. I can still remember songs that I now can not even find on the Internet. In my teen years I heard Frankie Laine, The Andrew Sisters, Kitty Kallen, Teresa Brewer, Guy Mitchell, The Crew Cuts, Elvis, Frank Sinatra, Doris Day, Tony Bennett, Buddy Holly, Perry Como, Gene Vincent, and the best country singers that ever were.
By the time you two were watching Easy Rider and listening to Steppenwolf, I had been riding that scene for years - only a bit more legally and less dangerously. But the good times with the opposite sex helped to relieve an overdose of testosterone. But that's a story for another day and venue.

Watched an interview with Lemmy (RIFP) of Motorhead recently where he says he remembers "before Rock n' Roll"
Thats what youre referring too I reckon.

Born in the mid 30s and raised by a stay-at-home mom who had the radio on disc jockey programs, I grew up on the music of the 20s, 30s, 40s and 50s. Definitely pre Rock n Roll.

Ooooops, sorry. Thought you were headed more in the direction on Mbx's idea of a "chill out tool".
