  1. perception and facts are not always co-linear, making assumptions such as this are offensive and typically do not reflect truth.

    Having said that, I trust those victorian guys show you guys a great time (and confident that they will), keep you away from the crap beer, skanky scensters, and give you room to breathe. Embrace the good, and offer a single finger to the rest...:rolleyes::D

    Cheers,

    Drewfus:)
     


  2. Ooops...got it backwards-sorry Ryan.:eek:

    It is ' look to the right stepping off a curb'...Zoinks! My Dad nearly bought the farm in Bermuda by not looking right stepping off a curb while jaw-jacking with my trailing Mom....he was rather situationally unaware and quite shaken afterwards...a stranger grabbed his arm and pulled him back onto the curb.

    Actually, I have always thought that here in the states we should drive on the right and sit on the RH side as well...it would be safer in two ways 1: In the typical intersection left-front to left-front crash, the driver would be sitting on the opposite side of the crash...and 2: when you get in and out of the car, the driver's door would open to the curb, not to oncoming traffic. It would be more dangerous in intersection T-Bone though...I have driven a few RH drive cars here in the states and it just feels natural to me to sit on that side.

    Again, sorry Ryan...practice looking right stepping off of curbs.

    Most importantly...

    Watch out for the DROP BEARS!

    Especially when driving a roadster.

    I hear horror stories about them from my mates that do our tours.

    Looking forward to meeting the Boss on Friday.
    As a way of keeping inter Country Peace, I don't know anyone who piles vegemite on dry toast, except American Talk Show Guests.
    If you can't survive plain Vegemite, spread it thin on a bit of buttered toast and add a slice of Cheese. Yummmm.
     
  5. Yeah but the Grog is free.................:D
     
  6. I don't really prefer to read fiction so I guess I'll pass for now. :cool:

    Drop bears ain't as predatory as the "Aussie Bush Pig"
    They are dangerous, and somehow know when to prey on innocent helpless drunks

  16. Actually Melbourne IS BAT COUNTRY. Every night in the inner suburbs a flock (?) of bats flies from the parks to the place they feed at night.....sky fills up with bats.

    True story.
