How about me turning up on the Cali II at the North Sydney Hilton back in
'84. I was wearing waxed cotton, it was bucketing down. I was dripping water
all over the lobby. Hi, I'm Theo bekkers, I'm booked in for three weeks, my
luggage should have arrived yesterday. Certainly sir, could we ask you to
park your vehicle yourself, we don't have anyone qualified. The porter will
carry those panniers to your room for you.

difference and I lack your confidence in them Nev.

Speculation about possible future unintended consequences, is just that

What they'll do about tattoos is unknown....
