Victoria's killer fires | Herald Sun

Apparently, the rider of this bike was found not far away. He didn't survive.

Last count was over 170 dead.

Edit: Now over 200 dead.

May God Bless those lost and those they left behind...

I've been following it the last few days. I mean no disrespect whatsoever when I say "Crikey".

I hate that these people have to deal with such tragedy and not to be completely crass, but does anyone see a new Mad Max movie coming out of this? Anyone?

It's like Challenger jokes. Within a few weeks of watching people we knew blow up in front of us, we were making jokes about it. Human nature...helps us deal with it.

As for the movie, they'll all wear those cool yellow jumpsuits and helmets instead of the leather and studs. And have flamethrowers instead of guns. In the final scene were the good guy is about to do in the evil leader of the bad guys, he'll turn his flamethrower on him and say:

"Time to slip another shrimp on the barbie, mate. You'd better hope they have Foster's in Hell!"
