EDI Rail built the Millennium Train for use in the Sydney rail network. Sydney was promised something special and special it was.more...
If the people of Sydney in 1988 thought the Tangara was the ultimate in train technology they were in for a pleasant surprise when the Millennium Train arrived. It had all the bells and whistles.
Unfortunately the people running the show, and directly one MP Michael Costa who was the transport minister of the day, they all got cold feet after a few major delays. Like the Tangara in 1988, in 2003 and beyond this was a very complex train that required expert gentle hands.
With thousands of staff to be trained it was a tall order to expect every member of staff would have it down perfect from day one. Yet at the time the minister was told. We will make it work.
With no improvements the minister said, dumb this train down.
A question that demands an honest answer is.
Why did EDI not painted Mr Costas picture on the front of the train?
Back to the serious business. EDI must have made it clear that dummying down is stepping backwards. Not to be seen as getting it wrong MP Costa showed them about stepping back...
|2.||Nigger Gravy Train|
1). Originally used by whites in the great depression to describe CCC (Civilian Conservation Corp) jobs i.e. government work relief programs.
2). However, this phrase was 'taken back' by the African American community in the 1980's. Usages were applied to fellow African American employed in lucrative, glamor fields such as professional sports, entertainment, or drug dealing.
3). Unfortunately, this phrase was co-opted by 'the man' in the early years of the new millennium. Specifically by Wall Street traders upon hearing of the first round of financial bailouts. Note - this usage predates the Obama presidency and as such can't be construed as a racist attack on the Obama presidency. Rather, Wall Steet wiggers are 'keeping it real'.
1). Bill's been riding the Nigger Gravy Train out in Yosemite - he's getting three hots and a cot everyday!
2). That bitch Rick James has been riding the Nigger Gravy Train since Super Freak charted.
3). "No matter how much we fuck-up, the government will bail us out. We're big too fail, Biff! We're riding that Nigger Gravy Train!!
A bland musical genre popular around the turn of the millennium. Groups such as Maroon 5, Train, Coldplay, and of course, John Mayer typified the genre. Enjoyed by soccer moms, overweight teenage girls, and frat boys trying to get drunk freshman in to bed, it is the natural extension of "yacht rock", popular in the late 70's and early 80's.
"Brenda, you have to get the new album by bath rock superstar John Mayer. His light breathy voice, inoffensive pseudo-sexual lyrics and bland musical stylings get my juices flowing."
