this convo took place on a sunny day at southbank in front of the brisbane wheel -
*a 40 something year old man walks over to a 20 something year old girl who was standing near the wheel, waiting for a friend*
20: umm... hello.
40: so, do you know anything about the ferris wheel?
20: umm... not much. i know u pay to get on it.
40: ah yes... would you like to take a ride with me?

*40 something year old man walks away, leaving 20 something year old girl feeling "whatta?"*
