The latter quotation is not a reply to the former, but juxta-posing them brings about interesting images in your mind.
You have an evil mind.
I like that.
Far too many normal people herabouts 8)
I'm fascinated by the people who say, "Touch your Myki on and off without taking it out of your wallet."
Do you seriously think that I'm going to risk running my ATM card, Credit Cards et al across some form of electronic scanner?
I always thought all stations were normally un-maned. Of course on some rare special occasions some may be decorated with plumes or similar, and these could be considered as manes.
^hm, whilst that is a remote possibility, I think you'll find in practice it would happen rarely. I am 6'3" and my hip pocket (where I keep my wallet) does not reach the reader. Plus you do have to hold it pretty close for that to occur. If it does happen though, it might teach people not to lean against the myki readers as seems to happen more often than not at the moment... though on a crowded trams sometimes you have no choice!
I have noticed, Someone who is 5'11 (Like myself) with a long lanyard, Can uh... scan on by uh... well... leaning forwards towards the myki readers, On the W class. What was that post a few hundred pages ago about Mykiphelia?!
You'll find that people who carry their cards/IDs around their neck off a lanyard, like I do, will easily find themselves at the right height squished up against a myki scanner on a peak Collins or Bourke St tram. It could easily happen.
