    Mate, didn't you always wonder where those white posts came from? I mean, they have to grow them somewhere. Belinda thinks they are all the same size because they don't start out from seed, they are grown from cuttings.

    You have done a much nicer job than I did of them, by the way. I couldn't think of any way to make an attractive shot out of them, but you seem to have nailed it.

    I've formulated two theories on this one now Mic.

    I reckon they've planted these U-Bute new GM posts alongside the road here, and too close to field that has been well fertilized with the remnants of many broken political promises of better roads and other such pledges that offend the nose of most Aussies.
    And I reckon Bob Hawke must have passes by here at some point just after his assertion that by 1990, no child will be living in poverty, so this spot must be well fertilized little bottomless swamp. It is after all, close to the middle of nowhere!
    I reckon that Vic Roads planted all those infertile GM mile markers fully thinking that they are totally neutered, but they mustn't have seen the movie Jurassic Park, where the all female population had overcome all obstacles and naturally changed their sex in a random manner.(something about chaos theory, I think). Anyhow it seems that scientists and politicians, and possibly even bureaucrats don't watch movies, and that inanimate plastic posts do!.. hence with the bristling nature of that swamp, and considering the possible political manure manifest in there, coupled with the natural run off from the surrounding hills which would also be brimming with many tons of other, more natural, fertilizing agents.... this image comes as no surprise!

    either that, or you're THE MAN when it comes to clone stamping!
