    Believe me, there were enough zero's in the contract along with Roger Penske's signature. V8 kangaroo cars or Indianapolis and a shiny solid silver baby borg.

    I do beg to differ, my fine down-under nemisis.



    My sister runs a travel agency in Scottsdale, AZ (Oberriter Travel) and is an 'expert' in travel to OZ. To her, Austrailia is just a stop over to Fiji for good wine and cheese. I refuse to accompany her, unless she relents to a Harley Rental in Brisbane where we run off and do mescaline with the Aborigines.. she declined.

    She feels sorry for the ancestors of the convicts there and often sends me photos of ancient Austrailian grave stones and the reasons they were sent to aussieville. (one kid stole two bushles of apples).

    Contrare, my fair-game aussie gimmer. OZ is world renound for their Whine and cheese.

    Austrailia produces wine, cheese and crazy ozzie fuggers.. Like this guy:

    ZED clone proves there is No GOD. (how do these guys multiply? they are everywhere like wallabees.)

    And my sis wonders why I won't travel to OZ..


    hahahaha. come on puzzy boy, take the TEST:

    Zed. 0. Here I have spent the better part of my adult life FORGETTING ABOUT THE BEE GEES and you have now ruined a life's work. I hope you are proud (and get a stick poked in your eye).

    The late 70's and early 80's sucked, especially musically and especially because of the Bee Gee's. On that note, I can now admit that it was I that tossed the entire collection of disco records into the pond.

    That means you are a double wanker!

    The Bee Gee's had to leave Aus, that pic illustrates why. I can see multiple ass kickings accordingly.

    Re:?

    I don't like to clutter GIM with this nonsense during the day, but I will make this one exception.



    So, I'm gonna try talking you down from your bad trip. (shit happens)

    Taking you from Bee Gees to Elmore James is a bit much, I freely admit my msitake.

    Ok, Zebber, here we go.. Let go of the Bee Gee Album and have a seat.

    Hmmmmmm, maybe Pet Shop Boys would be ur next step out of darkness?



    I know this tune is still pretty gay, , but trust me,, we are headed in the right direction and soon you will be turning onto manly blues in NO TIME.

    A few more good Ozzie rants and you'll be fine. Just let that BG evil spirit go.

    Nothin like a Blues Exorcism to clear the palate :bear_w00t:

    Heck. Under that crust might lie the next Russel Crowe.

    Bundaberg Black rum and Bundaberg Royal Liqeur.

    At least I hope they're still making 'em. Best on the planet imho, but they don't won't export them afaik. :mad_m:
    I got lucky when a buddy of mine brought me back a bottle of each. :bear_w00t:
    I'm making 'em last.

    They also have some reeeally nice opal down under too.

    Seriously true. I don't know what it is, but any Aus male (that doesn't look like donk, can't help him) that wants multiple ladies of his choice just has to show up at any American bar.

    Wait. They all look like Donk or Nugget. Never mind.:flute:

    Austrailia, world's next superpower?

    It could be done, u blokes have the piss n vinager for it. You may need some more lessons from the us ancient and learned elders (the old pharts).



    Oh, btw, thanks for your help in the jungle over there. Face it, there was just too many fuggin slant eyes for us to kill. Like walking into an ant's nest.



    Ok, from Pet Shop Boys we move to Mark Knoffler, this bloke fits the bill nicely.

    Danny Blah? Blah?

    I remember him.

    Be patient, young buck. Us old pharts may be clever, but we are slow..

    Check this out. Figure out what us YANKS did right and do it OZ STYLE.

    Like this '55 Chev, only an ozzie would spend TEN YEARS building a hot rod. NO ONE else on the planet has that kind of grit:



    You blokes lived in that evil varment infested desert for so long you don't realize ur own strength. Yanks admire the oz work ethic:


    Sorry about the capitalist add in the second vid, u know how it goes by now.

    We don't want slant eyes ruling the world, do we?

    Those chinks stole everything we ever invented.

    You are just another damn socialist that wants to use the government to steal other peoples efforts! Maybe if you'd made something of your life you wouldn't be like this dude! Maybe you'd be happy with yourself!

    I'm not capitalist or socialist, btw... I believe in absolute monarchy.

    You austrailains remind me of a young Kwai Chang Caine. metal_pebble3.jpg
    You have it in you, but it would take some SERIOUS time at the Temple to get those Bee Gees out of ur head.

    Oh, I figure I have about three times the amount of money I will need to live out the rest of my life in comfort. I leave the squabbles about the quid to u youngins.

    One day last week...

    Somewhere deep in Keef's mind....

    Brain Cell A: Duuuuuuuuuuude!
    Brain Cell B: Duuuuuuuuuuude!
    Both: I thought I was the last survivor!
    A: Man am I glad to see you!
    B: Yeah me to man!
    A: I haven't seen anyone since Bongfest 93'
    B: Yeah me neither, man that skunk really laid waste to ummm, uhhhh.... ummm
    A: YEAH man!
    B: Dude, what is that big sucking sound I hear all the time these days?
    A: Huh? Oh that, it's the intellectual vacuum, man its been sucking hard since 93... I guess that is where the others went.
    B: So who is running this joint?
    A: I dunno, I think its the guys down in the Tourette's department, there is nobody up here in higher functions to do anything!
    B: Heavy dude!
    A: Yeah...

    TBC.... stay tuned for the adventures of A & B! Don't touch that dial :biggrin:

    Just looking around my social circles I'd have to say that Australia produces a lot of cool, happy, uneducated, young blue-collar guys that earn $100k+. (plus the exotic submissive babes that love them.) :angel_smile:

    Australia is a quarry, and a farm.

    Well. Uncle Mao's paying the bills as we speak. If the West goes down, maybe the renminbi goes up a shi'lload? They'll have the purchasing power whatever the relative value of currencies, and they'll purchase our rocks. If anything disasterous happens to the world, (and I'm looking at you, Bibi,) then we just revert to producing most of the world's gold, and we'll muddle through somehow.

    As for young rich bogans, I certainly don't say they're the answer to the world's problems, just that we have lots of them. they've swapped hookers & blow for hookers & chrystal meth, as it turns out, mostly due to the drug testing regime in the mines. Which is a shame. We can't even get pretend marijuana from wank shops anymore, but you adapt eh bro?

    And yes Shadey, I agree. Australia is a quarry and a farm. And the quirky vicissitudes of financial fate say this is currently miles better than being a call centre, or a strip mall, or a technology incubator or even some sort of community. I think it's good for 10-20 years if anything is.
