    Default Stuff you thought everyone else knew......

    I just checked WA where I live and NO you don't indicate onto the roundabout when going straight. Very confusing news story I watched then.

    When going straight I always indicated left whilst exiting. It was actually on a news program not that long ago, I thought it was common knowledge.
    Is it a state by state thing? I'm in NSW.

    I am a courier for a living but in qld and I know the road rules here are to NOT indicate if going straight but a lot of people do it. Round a bouts are the most stupid things to ever be invented because hardly anyone uses them correctly and with certain roundabouts the rules change. If everyone just follows the arrows on the ground there would be far less accidents.

    Eta- you have to indicate left when exiting the roundabout. And you can't turn right from the damn left lane so don't do it! Argh!

    Very surprised by this as I was definitely taught by my instructor in WA that you always indicate on and off a roundabout. I get cranky at DH for not doing it lol

    ^^^ this

    I can't remember if it's 2 or more years, but I remember googling it a while back as I had a can with no date but the contents looked AWFUL. And yes, if it has a safe shelf life of more than ?2? years it does not require a use by date. So, tuna will go off.

    Also, most supermarket honey is processed so that it has had most of its 'living' elements killed (to help prevent botulism). You need to buy specific honey if you want its antibacterial properties etc.

    I also never say "Moet" because I know the T is pronounced but just can't be bothered with an argument (especially if I'm drinking!).

    This is from a thread a while back, I'm surpised how many people don't know butter can be stored at room temperature.

    My personal favourite is the roundabout of death in Brisbane which is so big it has a freaking car yard on the actual roundabout. Arghh!!!
