    Beer, the final frontier

    Stand back, NASA, ESA, RFSA and the rest... The Aussies are coming.
    Now that the serious technical issues have been overcome, there’s nothing holding us back.

    “There’s nothing so lonesome, morbid or drear,
    As to float in the cabin of a ship with no beer.”

    Not yet, but as someone once said, that's one small step...
    And check out the video showing the testing. It must be good stuff, because those guys are really flying!

    A Pub With No Beer

    It's lonesome away from your kindred and all
    By the campfire at night where the wild dingos call
    But there's nothin' so lonesome, so dull or so drear
    Than to stand in the bar of a pub with no beer

    Now the publican's anxious for the quota to come
    There's a faraway look on the face of the bum
    The maid's gone all cranky and the cook's acting queer
    What a terrible place is a pub with no beer

    The stockman rides up with his dry, dusty throat
    He breasts up to the bar, pulls a wad from his coat
    But the smile on his face quickly turns to a sneer
    When the barman says suddenly: "The pub's got no beer!"

    There's a dog on the verandah, for his master he waits
    But the boss is inside drinking wine with his mates
    He hurries for cover and he cringes in fear
    It's no place for a dog round a pub with no beer

    Then in comes the swagman, all covered with flies
    He throws down his roll, wipes the sweat from his eyes
    But when he is told he says, "What's this I hear?
    I've trudged fifty flamin' miles to a pub with no beer!"

    Old Billy, the blacksmith, the first time in his life
    Has gone home cold sober to his darling wife
    He walks in the kitchen; she says: "You're early, me dear"
    Then he breaks down and he tells her that the pub's got no beer

    It's lonesome away from your kindred and all
    By the campfire at night where the wild dingos call
    But there's nothin' so lonesome, so dull or so drear
    Than to stand in the bar of a pub with no beer

    Hmmm... We always sung "morbid."
    But I guess we were drunk at the time.

    Bit of a waste, really.
