The nation's capital

I'm in Canberra for work today. Flying is a frustrating reminder of the Australian ban on knitting sticks on both domestic and international flights. So much wasted knitting time. So you can't take knitting sticks (even bamboo 2.5mm ones, which are little more than long toothpicks) on the plane, but you can check in using the whiz-bang quickcheck system (which I do love and wouldn't change) without even needing to show any ID. I love our security system. So Australian (she'll be right, mate!). What a lovely trusting culture we seem to have...

Heh, a 2.5mm bamboo would probably snap at the point of impact.
