'Un-Australian': Fisherman cops fine for cracking beer
I honestly wouldn't have known the bloke if you introduced me to him. And I spend a lot of time seeking out restaurants and bars.. I'm aware of him, and maybe I saw him on Chef's TAble, but that's about it.
Might not have been for the purists but for people on the fringes who looked at the ‘dining scene’ with derision and contempt, he made it accessible and even trendy.
Ive worked it out gutnuts. I can upload the adventures of hindy111
To think it was so simple and this tech savy super smart human missed it.
And here is to your pinky promise
Reading between the lines, said fisherman looks like an absolute tool and the cops probably fined him bc he gave them uncalled for attitude.
Plenty of city parks and CBD precincts have alcohol free zones and are well signed.
So karma is a bitch for idiots.
If you dont watch Food or Travel channels on cable, FTA or on airlines, then no surprise.
Oh, I didn't consciously avoid his stuff....just never really occurred to me. I guess I also tend to watch a lot more British than US stuff.
I watch heaps of Food, but not Travel channels on cable (well, satellite). Maybe it's the 'travel' side that explains it.
His TV work is definitely destination first, people second, food third however all three are always present.
His written work is also travel / food non-fiction, but was also very successful with his crime fiction.
Yeah i got the impression he probably acted like i dick
I dont know the rules but wouldnt be surprised if there is a rule stopping drinking while rock fishing - dangerous enough at times without having a skinful
Very sensible to have alcohol free zones around rock fishing platforms.
Also family areas. This is Bronte beach down the road from me.
It's nanny state rubbish that makes life a bit more miserable for millions of people but keeps a few idiots alive.
The nanny state has developed more out of tort claims where courts have held government liable when idiots have been injured or killed. Councils have no choice but to ban this or that.
To try and stem the growing cost of insurance, they have introduced caps or thresholds for injuries (motor vehicle) but now punters are complaining that they get f**k all if they have suffered from a no fault accident. Hard to keep everyone happy.
I would have totally lost my shit if that happened to me. That cop needs glassing.
Can't the laws be changed so that councils aren't liable?
IIRC the Civil Liability Act was introduced to make you watch where you are walking and places responsibility on you look after yourself.
I’m not sure we want to live in a society however where the state is never liable. That would be called China.
If Bourdain's missus had have kept her mouth shut then maybe he'd still be around to give try hard foodies something to be trendy about.
