The Deception of Ms R.

“We are never deceived; we deceive ourselves.”
Goethe

Boy that Goethe really knows his shit doesn’t he?  He could have been writing specifically about this worst.  Driver “Ms. R” has tried to disguise a broken wing mirror with a piece of aluminium foil, hoping that the reflective nature of the foil will deceive traffic cops as to the true nature of the mirror’s state. You don’t have a very high opinion of our police do you R? At least try and cover the whole thing. What are you going to say if pulled up? “That’s how it came from the factory officer”? I noticed the tyres were a little balding too. You might want to patch them up with some liquorice.

    I hate to be a killjoy, but unless the road rules have changed since I first drove a Datsun 120Y, one does not need a passenger-side mirror.

    I can’t understand why a person would mock one up.

  5. Everything that was original on a car has to work, so if it was supplied, it has to be replaced in the case of going over the pits. If there wasn’t one originally then it would not be required after a vehicle inspection.

  6. I want to understanding the underlying premise behind the foil. To me, it does nothing. NOTHING. Not a single fucking thing. WHY IS IT THERE. WHAT DOES IT DO. Form/function. Art. Is it?????????? Explain. Explanations.

  7. Did anybody else spot that the foil seems to be from a much smaller mirror?

    Ms R needs a hassle free trip to coles to expand her foil supply!
