:P ... I can answer one of those questions, at least. I'm not sure about the bus, however. This is just an idea/thought, but have you ever tried a different ID occasionally? See, when I got my Cyndaquil I SRed for ages and ages on the same ID with no results. Now, I know the entire shiny thing is random, we all know that pretty much, but I would sometimes change my ID and settle on another one that looked interesting. On the one day I changed my ID on my HG, it only took around 13 SRs for the shiny to appear. Now, again, it's all random, but it doesn't hurt to try things like this every now and then, mixing it up a little. Good luck!
