Top this for a speeding ticket...

Two Hunter traffic patrol officers from Newcastle LAC were involved in an unusual incident while checking for speeding motorists on the F3 Freeway. One of the officers used a hand-held radar device to check the speed of a vehicle approaching over the crest of a hill, and was surprised when the speed was recorded at over 800Kph. Their radar suddenly stopped working and the officers were not able to reset it.

Just then a deafening roar over the treetops revealed that the radar had in fact latched on to a Williamtown FA-18 fighter jet which was engaged in a low-flying exercise over Wyong, approaching from the ocean.

Back at police headquarters the Local Area Commander fired off a stiff complaint to the RAAF Liaison officer at Williamtown.

Back came the reply in true laconic RAAF style:

'Thank you for your message, which allows us to complete the file on this incident. You may be interested to know that the tactical computer in the Hornet had detected the presence of, and subsequently locked onto, your hostile radar equipment and automatically sent a jamming signal back to it. Furthermore, an air-to-ground missile aboard the fully-armed aircraft had also automatically locked onto your equipment.

Fortunately the pilot flying the Hornet recognised the situation for what it was, quickly responded to the missile systems alert status, and was able to override the automated defence system before the missile was launched and your hostile radar installation was destroyed.

Thank you for your enquiry.

:) Gaalburn

I wish this was real...

unfortunately radar guns and SAM radar wavelengths are way out of sync with each other. a tac-sys black box on a modern fighter wouldn't even notice the cops playing silly buggers, let alone try to launch on them.

I was riding my bicycle last week, when a cop put his radar gun on me. [:0]
When I asked how fast I was going he replied "8" and gave me a thumbs up. :D

Don't make me release the flying monkeys!

Far to early to releases that kind of information, probably be public knowledge in 50 years time. Joe Public doesn't need to know the lengths our War Pigs went to to ensure to NIslanders kept their independence! :p

The Grand Republic of GB will have a "classified"
doc release in : June 31st 2057.
Just befor the ice cap melts and destroyes
the Strategic Air Fields hosting the squadrons of
Flying War Pigs.

Of a more recient inovation the Grand Republic of GB
has harnessed the Glow factor in a dynamic breakthrough
to melt the Ice on Mars.

It is now believed possible that a chain of Mars Bars
may be set up to ensure a goodley supply of that
Well known Southern Beverage. 45 South.
Not to be confused with that NI counterfeit
Claytons. "something you have when you have nothing!"

PS:: K1W1 Hand held radar guns are standard issue
in the Wild Boer stronghold.

GB ( Dont tell BB )

Gallburn, I don't think its that easy to get rid of speed radars. The government would lose too much revenue.

Another speeding ticket! :D

Bob was driving home over the Auckland Harbour Bridge at about 90kmph. Wouldn't you know a cop jumped out and clocked him with radar. Bob pulled over like a good citizen; recalling Rodney King and recent illegal alien incidents. The cop walked up to the window and said, "You know how fast you were going, BOY?"

Bob thought for a second and asked, "Uhh, over 50?"
"93kmph son! 93kmph in a 50 zone!"
"But if you already knew, officer" replied Bob, "Why did you ask me?"

Ignoring Bob, the officer continued, in his normal charming fashion, "That's speeding, and you're getting a ticket and a fine!"

The cop took a good look at Bob and said, "You don't even look like you have a job! Why, I've never seen anyone so scruffy in my entire life!"
Bob answered, "I've got a job! I have a good, well paying job!"
The cop leaned in the window, and with the smell of day old donuts on his breath, said, "What kind of a job would a bum like you have?"

"I'm a rectum stretcher!" replied Bob.
"What you say, BOY?" asked the patrolman.
"I'm a rectum stretcher!"
Of course the cop asked, "What does a rectum stretcher do?"
Bob explained, "People call me up and say they want to be stretched, so I go over there and start with a couple of fingers, then a couple more, and then one whole hand, then two. Then I pull them farther and farther apart until it's six feet across."

The cop, absorbed with the images in his mind, let down his guard and asked, "What the hell do you do with a six foot asshole?"

Bob nonchalantly commented, "You give it a radar detector and stick it at the end of a bridge!"

From a retired friend: OR, How to annoy your political opposites.

Working people frequently ask retired people what they do to make their days interesting. Well, for example, the other day I went downtown and into a shop.. I was only there for about 5 minutes and when I came out there was a cop writing out a parking ticket.
I said to him, "Come on, man, how about giving a retired person a break?"
He ignored me and continued writing the ticket. I called him a "Nazi."
He glared at me and wrote another ticket for having worn tires.
So I called him a "doughnut eating Gestapo." He finished the second ticket and
put it on the windshield with the first. Then he wrote a third ticket.
This went on for about 20 minutes.
The more I abused him the more tickets he wrote. Personally, I didn't care.
I came downtown on the bus, and the car that he was putting the tickets on had a bumper sticker that said "Obama in '08."
I try to have a little fun each day now that I'm retired. It's important to my health.
