    . . Colleges Crossing has been completely rescaped since the floods wiped it out and makes for a nice day out with ample parking, lots of BBQ points, and a cafeteria.

  2. I saw her interviewed on TV and tbh, she didn't seem that bright when it came to answering questions.....................(not that you have to be bright to be principled), but some of her answers, those that she didn't stumble over, seemed to be rehearsed as if she'd been coached, albeit by academics with strong principles. I doubt that any child of that age would see any racism inherent in the Anthem unless they'd had it defined to them as such. In my experience, not many kids of that age will have the political nous or determination to take that kind of stand unless they've been coached in the subject and would have their parent's backing. All well and good if she's in full agreement (through full understanding) with what she's been coached in and is hopefully not simply adopting that stand to please her parents, to simply grandstand herself or is being used by two academics to highlight racism..................the grandstanding being a dangerous negative to her personal development now that she's received so much attention
  3. You'd be more fatigued from cleaning the chewing gum and other crap from your vehicle. I doubt very much that you'd be fatigued from driving for a long time as that much work simply doesn't exist, at least not in Brisbane. A lot of my son's mates have tried it and all packed it in within a month. There is an oversupply of the young thinking it's be an easy way to make a few bucks to pay for their vehicle

    UK plug removal??

    I'm no leccy but RCD doesn't prevent shock IME. It trips out before major shock but I have still experienced shocks. I had a stiff fitting plug on an appliance and whilst attempting to push it in, my finger touched a prong and I got a shock.

    Marrying cousins, should it be outlawed?

    I actually had a "hot" kissing cousin who I had a few encounters with around the age of 13. I'd just got out of the orphanage and somehow never even clicked that she was my cousin when we started hanging out together as I knew nothing of my extended family. I was really taken with her but we drifted apart when I joined up at age 15. She recently found me on FB and I got her hard luck life story, how she's now found peace, and she's now an ordained Scottish Presbyterian minister...............a few posts from her and I had to unfriend her

    Or on what fits the State?
  7. If she's anything like me after an op, she'll be too wussy to even notice the food I'm sure you'll do fine

    Yup! I lost a >40yr old filling about 6 months back. I now have to clean the cavity after every meal with a toothpick but there's no way that I'll have it filled again. It gave me gyp back then otherwise I'd never have had it filled but it seems tolerable (for) now

    Agreed. Ever seen an old bloke/woman with a tatt done in their earlier years? No matter how good they look when first done, Tatts degenerate with age. The inks merge, colours fade, and they look a bloody mess after 20 yrs or so. From experience I know that the ones with the most/best work are the ones that really look crap in later years. colours fade and lines spread/merge. Even a simple tatt such as my service number and blood group............simple plain text, is now undecipherable so I dread to think what those 3D tatts will look like. A Tatt artist freely admitted to me, as he tatted over one of my old tatts, that the tattoos with most work/finesse would be the ones that would be the first to decline

    Dentist....................umpteen operations in my lifetime without a worry but dentists????? I think it goes back to my childhood and the smell of that bloody rubber gas mask they put over your face...........I can smell it as I type...............uuuuuuuuurgh! I've not been to a dentist in 40 yrs but I still cringe at the thought

    Why are Britsh people so lazy ?

    As for the Brits being "lazy"..............that's a load of bollox.................they simply lack motivation due to continued mis-management of economic and social issues by Brit political parties. Why work for a minimum wage (or less) when the "system" will give you far more benefits not working? It's not just about the dole giro but the accompanying fringe benefits such as rent assistance etc.............do they still give out milk tokens? What a farce that was.............you could swap 'em with your milkman for eggs, bacon, and anything else the dairy brought onto their floats once they knew how lucrative those tokens would be. Probably not relevant now but an indicator of where the rot set in.

    Thank you Kate. I'll try to oblige. It'd be nice if other brizzy dwellers posted theirs here also
