    I started using them a few months ago. I think they’re great. I can’t wait for the rest of my old ones to blow so I can replace them, too.

    The biggest is transport, and the Australian federal government is doing nothing on that — if anything, moving backwards by funding huge road projects but nothing in urban rail/public transport.
