[VIS] Re: Memorial Drive upgrade

Yep, joining the chorus - 6,000 is woefully inadequate.

If they’re serious about using this venue for basketball and/or as a concert venue, they should be looking at 10,000 as a starting point.

Absolutely. I’ve always loathed posters, art, whatever being stuck on the side of the building.

My understanding was that the ‘tunnel’ would pass under the casino extension?

Re: News & Discussion: General CBD Development

It's difficult to tell too much about the second and third options from the little pictures above but the first one with the bendy poles just looks plain awful. Don't often say it, but based on these pics it seems like the right call from ACC on this one. Agree, the first one is easily the worst. T...

I'm all for some sort of lighting feature along the Riverbank, but these ideas just look so DULL.

Was in Adelaide for a few days - went to 2KW - VERY nice. Views are exceptional - back along NT and down KWS towards Nth Adelaide. I would not have known it was Adelaide except for the railway stn, parliament house and the playhouse. Impressed with 2KW as well. ADELAIDE - TOWARDS A GREATER CITY SKY...

Re: Beer Garden

Matt, I never meant to suggest your maths was wrong; it's clearly correct. I was simply making the point that statistics can be used to 'prove' anything, and in this case I think "89%" or "100%" is misleading with respect to the base 61.6% vs 38.4% result. I also never said this was a "close" resul...

Mine always does, it’s hideous.

To a lot of people it’s such a regular occurrence that they don’t seem to be bothered.

Re: Beer Garden

The fact it hasn't been picked up by the news confirms we should probably stop talking about it. 7 news briefly mentioned it. :cry: As sad as this is, it’s something of a relief that events like this are so rare that they do still make news. People are so immune to the regularity of people jumping ...

Re: Beer Garden

So 61.6% of Aussies are selfish, hypocritical, morons and/or twats? 100% of states and territories voted yes. 89% of electorates voted yes. That's some interesting maths you have going on there, Matt (and everyone else who is celebrating an "overwhelming majority"). So, 61.6% becomes 89% or 100%, d...
