Uh... you know how expensive it is to mail stuff to Australia from Canada? Yikes. We're on a budget Josh. ;-)

Uh Josh did'nt you mean...:take over the multiverse" pamphlet?

Or is the idea to start small -with the world- and then slowly expand so Tinaa can get used to the idea???

I only sent one to Australia, Josh was supposed to drive around the continent and share it with you guys.

and around the continent on a penny-farthing bike, wearing a suite and a top hat!

See .. that was part of the beauty of the plan. Bankrupt Canadia. I'm not sure what the next step is after that's achieved but I'm sure I'll think of it. After all I'm an ideas man. (All you aussies should get that joke.)

Now, Fraser. My pet kangaroo isn't in a hopping mood so the distribution will have to wait. Plus I'm translating it from canadan to australian (or "streen" as some might say).

Welcome damienpaul.
If you have only been here for one day, and made so many posts, you will surely become a contributing member. Or you are well on your way to taking over this joint.

Come-on you blokes .... Alice Springites are so remote they don't even know where the rest of Australia is, less the rest of the world!

Mmmmm ... Mate - Australia has 7 states (or is it 6?) counting that little island below Mexico. There are a couple of islands up North .......... called ...... where
the original Aussies came from ....... and the rest of us from ..... a couple of little islands up north ..... further away called the UK ........ (DippyHiip comes from there) then there is ....... :D

Co-venture? please ... we are masters of delegation down here. We aussies rule and get the canadan to do all the work. It's a really wonderful little set up.

It must be such a releif to have internet in Alice Springs, growing up in Darwin all the refugees from the red center used to tell us stories of satanic rituals and other depraved pastimes ( like voting CLP ) to leave the horrific boredom.

Having Past through there a couple of times myself, I can remember the AMAZING Clear sky at night, the red sand and the McDonnel Ranges. And, strangely, the three times I have been through, it Rained.

So we're taken over the multiverse? why doesn't anyone tell me these things ?

Why don't you go there more often? Make it rain.

Chook, I believe damienpaul was talking about the Northern Territory.
I think ausjosh is the only other canberran I have seen at UT. (the NT does rule by the way)

damienpaul

Yes damienpaul was speaking of the Northern Territory!, specifically the heart - Alice Springs!

Yeah, it lacks but an ocean of water, for it has a Yacht Club and that other boat race, What is it called?

Chook

Damienpaul - if you look at a "Geophysical" map of Australia (or whatever it's called), there is a huge underground sea there, with Alic Springs smack-bang in the middle of it.

What about the Annual Boat Race in the Todd River! This is the funniest event to watch - with a number of blokes inside the sides of a "boat", sail and all, holding it up around their waists and running down this dusty river bed to see who can win.

I admit a couple of VBs after that would be just great! :P

This is very true and we have several contigencies to maintain the purity and resource - however, at a meeting i went to recently, there is a 60 year supply only at the current rate of consumption - not good.

The Henley-on-Todd sand yacht race is awesome, i was in it this year... :D

It was a hoot! :lol:

I'll probably make a lot of Australian enemies for saying this, but Alice Springs could be the heart of Australia, it is right in the middle after all.

You have a friend here!!!! a central Aussie ally! ;)
