    Thinking, there are still some honest people out there who are not afraid to say it straight up.

    I'm puzzled by this:

    What could 'other' be? Maybe kayaking, I guess. But that's a big chunk for Sydney - almost as many people as walk/cycle.

    I thought maybe carpool, but lots of people do that here in Auckland, and 'other' doesn't register there at all, so it must come under car.

    Could be, although it seems to me that motorbikes are included in walk/cycle, so maybe scooters are too?

    Perhaps it's horses. Do many people commute to work in Sydney aboard their noble steeds?

    No, though I was once doing a Workers' Comp circuit up in Byron Bay one time, and was out on the piss with the other barristers.

    One of them owned a cane farm not far out of town with his brother. As he got more and more pissed, we were talking about what an arse hole the judge was, how uppity he was etc.

    So this bloke says "**** him, I'm riding my horse to court tomorrow".

    Next day, sure enough, about 5 minutes before court starts, a very hung over barrister rides into town on a half-Clydesdale and hitches it to the front of the court house. The judge went nuts - "Disgrace for a member of the NSW Bar to make a mockery of the court like that".

    I think he was going to report him til several of us pointed out it was a perfectly acceptable mode of transport.

    I don't think his case went all that well though.

    Mate those circuits were epic, truly. Had to trade in your liver after them.

    Worst thing ever with the changes to the personal injury laws was the loss of the country circuit. FMD you could charge a full brief fee every day and get a loading for wherever you were at the time, on each matter. Was brilliant.

    Some blokes had whole lists. I used to go up north and have between three and 12 cases in a list, some defendant barristers would have 30-40 cases in the list. It was epic.

    Truly, up in Orange there's a local restaurant that erected a plaque on the wall that says "This is the site of 'The Lunch'" where about 6 blokes started at midday one time and finished at 2.30 the next morning.

    Great days.

    Thinking that 'indecent assault' is a tautology.

    And that 'indecent exposure' is an oxymoron. Well, when there aren't fat chix involved.

    This isn't the place to post it but you have mentioned it in a strange joking sense in the past. But a public forum isn't the place to discuss it.
