MORE from Rizi: Couple days ago, @fascinatingimagery and i decided to head down the coast for some astro work. Nesi came to my place to pick me up in his new car which he bought the night before and right after getting on the highway, we found ourself getting chased by a highway police car. He stopped us and asked for identification then upon giving him the documents, he gave us a shock. We found out the car we were driving was unregistered from last 4 months or so which is illegal and a crime. In Australia, you are not allowed to use unregistered vehicles no matter what. Anyway, the cop said, i am supposed to take off your plates from the car as you can't drive this anymore but thankfully he let us go into the city to sort out the matter as we were on the highway. Long story short, we had to get the Blue slip, Green slip and registration done in couple of hours which is kind of impossible to get on the spot. You need to book appointments with mechanics to get stuff done so somehow we managed to get the blue slip, green slip and registration done. We were supposed to get to the astro spot by 6ish but we were struck till 5:30 in the city and we managed to get there on time later on too.
