  1. Trivia Question - since the Union Jack consists of the Scottish flag (St Andrew's?) - if Scotland ceases to be part of the Union, will the Union Jack change, and consequently will the Oz, NZ, Pacific Island nations with UJ's in there change as well? Can see the usual, "Change the Aussie Flag while we are at it" debate raise it's head yet again (down here) if so...
  2. Only 20 foreign gangs in Thailand? I'd think a lot more, considering the Russians, Europeans, Africans and other Asian "gangs" that are around.
  3. Expendables 3 - I've heard it will win every nomination it receives at the Oscars, as the last two did... It's what you expect, same as the last two.. awesome. Good for fun, but they throw a few younger ones into the mix, seems the old boys are a bit sore... Million ways to die is on the "while I'm doing the ironing" stick, tomorrow.

    Connections

    So my dad's second cousin is my second cousin removed?
  5. Agree Munch and BB, that's why I gave up exercise the minute I gave up manual labour.

    Olives

    if the olive farmer is not homeless, then yes, I guess they are all home grown. My olives are looking good - they are definitely home grown
  7. Game of Thrones (also reading the books, up to volume 5 - there will be 7 or 8, it gets better) True Detective - Apparently the next season has different actors Banshee - awesome
  8. ..... unless you really do want to shag her, get a bj off her etc... in which case you aren't really his "friend" are you?
  9. Man up and tell your mate's wife to stop involving you in her petty games. Problem solved. You're welcome.
  10. pretty sure mine is a photo of me
  11. Yep, and the one before that, Wales.
  12. What do you get when you cross a joke with a rhetorical question?
  13. The Lone Ranger - Not bad, as one could imagine Johnny Depp did a good job playing Tonto (he seems to like dressing up now doesn't he), and the final 30 odd minutes were fantastic. However a good 30-40 minutes could have been sliced out of the middle and we found ourselves wondering when something was going to happen at that point.
  14. With the possible exception of #'s 2, 3, 5 and 8 - I can't see a negative here...
  15. I've known a few lads over the years who have voted (in oz) for their mates who are stuck at work, who haven't been organised enough to vote early via post - even now we don't need to produce ID, and simply state our name and address. Not even DOB is on the book, just name and address. We get fined down here if we fail to vote, which is why this happens.
  16. If trying to make less people own guns isn't the answer... what is? Clearly the current state of affairs must be addressed... Or do people's lives mean so little these days, "Because it's in the Constitution"? disclaimer: yes I'm an Aussie - does this mean I shouldn't post in the US Thread? If not I'll stop when Americans stop commenting on other countries' affairs... including LOS disclaimer 2 : 90% + of Americans I've met have been great people.. the lawmakers/people with a bit of "pull", however (as in most countries) leave a lot to be desired.
  17. Yeah, good idea - arm everyone up... what could go wrong? Been no problems so far has there?
  18. I'm no expert cav but one would assume if the Dow is up, then businesses may be turning a tidy profit (otherwise investors would not buy the shares) - and may be inclined to put on more employees - they definately won't be hiring if they are losing money, and the Dow is going down... Pretty simple really
  19. They're gold H, will try to use as many of them as I can this week..
  20. "Unintentional Poisoning" - stands out to me, I have known people who have dies by all other related deaths in the chart, bar this one.. and coss is right, death by cancer, stroke, heart, respiratory of a smoker will go down as tobacco related. Basically if a smoker dies by any "natural" means - that's what it goes down as.
  21. The legal agreement that the three made in 2009 was deemed invalid by Kansas state because they did not use a certified doctor for the insemination. Why anyone would NOT use a real doctor to artificially inseminate is beyond me. That said, there's a lot of guys who jerked in a jar for $20 (?) who are very nervous right now...
  22. thought it was longer than that - walked soi 8 to soi 6 last trip and it was a good half hour (most of that dodging other pedestrians) - since walking st is further... up to you. Would see a lot of funny things on the way I guess.
  23. I really liked it. Wouldn't call it "one of the greats" but it was a good laugh and full of excitement... the carving of the arm and subsequent "instant" amputations got the mind racing.
