What is the first physical thing you look for in a partner?
Posted: 12/1/2011 5:57:08 AM
Eyes! Not so much in a profile pic,but in person you can definitely tell if theres something going on inside from someones eyes. Id say that Elle Macphersons greatest physical feature is her eyes....though Im not professing to being a saint,Ive looked at the rest of the package too!! lol
But theres a glint and a warmth in Elles eyes! ;)
Im having a tremendous amount of trouble finding her profile on here though! :(

My great 'missed opportunity' was with a girl who could tie my heart in knots that a 50 year sailor would be proud of just by making eye contact with her when we talked!
Shes married with kids and living in London now apparently....BLOODY POMS!! lol

Would Tony Abbott bring back WorkChoices?
Posted: 3/8/2010 9:29:19 AM
Ive gotta take issue with you 'internetdatinglol' on the donkey/Donald vote.

I remember growing up and seeing the ads on TV prior to elections telling us all that our vote was not just a drop in the ocean. So if my vote has value,why should I be obliged to give it to a party to have a right to be critical if no party fits my ideas and ideals of where the country should be headed?

Ive never had a party,the closest I came was the Democrats I guess....but they aint on the ballot paper anymore.
Id love to have a political party that I believed in and while I believe the vast majority of politicians enter politics with the best intentions,those best intentions seem to always end up swallowed by the bureaucracy and spin of both major parties.

So,as much as you might disapprove,my donkey vote isnt because I dont care,its because I dont want my vote filling the ocean of something I dont believe in.

Lets Play God !!!
Posted: 3/5/2010 8:57:21 AM
It really has been pretty disheartening seeing the reaction to this story,particularly here in WA. Perhaps the media has played a part in making this a 'for or against' issue,but for Gods sake,were talking about a 24y/o kid here thats been told without a new liver/live liver she'll be dead in 3 months and the operation may well result in her death anyway!!

For the life of me I dont understand the 'she had her chance and blew it' attitude.
I can totally understand the debate about who gets priority for available donated organs,but why the vitriol towards this young lady??
Because shes a heroin addict and a heroin addict with kids I think.
So Im assuming that everyone judging the kid has also beaten heroin addiction?

From my point of view I hope the operation goes really well for her and the family member that donates,I hope she finds the strength to keep that poison out of her veins for the rest of her life and her kids have their Mum to warn them of the dangers of drugs when theyre older.

As I stated earlier,Im certainly no expert in all of this,but from what I understand the operation is something called a "Live Liver Transplant" whereby a matching family member donates a portion of their own liver.

How that works I have no idea.

One of the saddest facts of this whole story,(that seems to have got lost in the discussion),is that theres such a shortage of available donated organs.
Im certainly no expert on the issue,is a liver a liver or does it need to be a liver from someone with a matching blood group?

And a question for fellow posters,are you listed as an organ donor?
I am,they wont be much use to me when Im gone.

But back to the original question.
Given the shortage I guess we've got to trust the specialists to make a priority of who needs the transplant most. The criticism of the young lady on the basis that she's a 'drug addict' is a little hard to read though. The fear of addiction is what always made me think of drugs like heroin as pretty much death,so while I was never offered the crap,my fear wouldve prevented me being tempted.
So why are people tempted?
I have no idea!
And given that I dont know and Ive never walked a mile in their shoes,I have no right to judge them.

Australia Day
Posted: 1/25/2010 9:06:05 AM
I was reading in the weekend paper that a lot of Aboriginals see Australia Day as Invasion Day and when you think about it,its not hard to see why.

Time for a different celebration of what it means to be Australian? Kinda seems like a good idea to me if the original inhabitants dont enjoy what we have now.
A different date at least maybe.

Any ideas?

Hunting and killing, the psychological effect
Posted: 1/19/2010 8:32:11 AM
Well now I feel awful for wanting to catch Naamahs fish icon thing! lol
Fishing is an interesting one actually,a very popular recreation. For the life of me I cant understand why anyone would want to spend an hour battling a fish such as a Marlin that they never had any intention of eating,I dont see the point at all,it seems nothing more than macho bravado.
Yet I enjoy catching a fish....I dont enjoy killing it,but I do enjoy catching it.
Perhaps thats some primal thing most of us have inside us,I have no idea,but life is full of contradictions I guess....cos fish are animals too!

Growing up on a farm sadly means its pretty much inevitable to have to take an animals life at some stage. Every year was a battle against the dreaded Aussie blowfly and I can assure you its no fun at all to have to shoot a sheep whose body has been ravaged by maggots. Its quite remarkable how fast it can happen,the humble blowfly is more dangerous to sheep than a fox!
And then you can talk foxes!
I cant say Ive ever enjoyed shooting a fox,but i havent lost a lot of sleep over it either.
I understand that the fox is only doing what comes naturally to it,but the savageness and cruelty in the killing of lambs does drive a primal protectiveness in you I guess.
But youll have to see a dying lamb with its face half eaten by a fox maybe.
Again,another contradiction really,the fox is doing whats natural.

I guess everyone reacts in their own way,but I was just as saddened shooting a flystruck sheep on the farm as I was taking my best mate border collie to the vets to get the injection because his arthritis was making his life unbearable.
Didnt feel like my decision to make but I had to make it.

As for humans killing humans? Thats one for a 'Religion and Politics' forum I think!

Ruddspeak
Posted: 12/3/2009 8:26:01 AM
Kev didnt invent it but hes mastered it to the point that the term has been coined in his honour. Does it drive you as insane as it drives me?

Heres a story from the paper today here in WA.

The South Metropolitan Area Health Service,which operates Fremantle Hospital among others,has sent to all departments in all hospitals a comprehensive four-page health and safety guide to Christmas tree erection,the usage of Christmas lights and the deployment of festive decoration.
The documents code name is "SMAHS SPE:41" and it refers to "SMAHS Corporate Standards Equip 4 Corporate-Safe Practice and Environment 3.2.1,3.2.2 and 3.2.4"

"SMAHS Group/Service Executive teams are encouraged to require the submission of completed Festive Decoration Fire Safety Audits as a precondition of participating in approved festive decoration competitions.The results of audits and other compliance monotoring activities are to be forwarded to the relevant governance committees or similar"


Well Merry Bloody Christmas to you too!! lol

The ETS....any ideas??
Posted: 11/24/2009 8:43:56 AM
Theres no doubt the ETS is a very important piece of legislation,but does anybody understand what it actually is?? I read in the paper that its an incredibly complex document and if seasoned political reporters struggle to understand it,what hope does an idiot like me have?!! lol

From what I can gather,Kevin Rudd and Penny Wong thought it was perfect,but allowed a few Liberal amendments to get the bill passed before Copenhagen....still not sure why it has to be before Copenhagen.

Malcolm Turnbull didnt like it at first,but the thought of it becoming a trigger for a double dissolution election scared the life outta him so he negotiated. Some of his party seem to believe the whole global warming thing is a myth it seems too,certainly many in the Nationals do.

The Greens dont like it either,they say it goes nowhere near far enough!

I believe we should be doing something to reduce our 'carbon footprint',but I have no idea if the Government is on the right track because I dont understand what track theyre on!

But maybe its just me. Does the legislation make perfect sense to you?

Religion and Politics
Posted: 11/20/2009 6:32:35 AM
On a recent episode on the ABC's 'Q & A' program Joe Hockey was talking about some public speaking engagements he had lined up to talk about his religious beliefs,apparently Kevin Rudd did a similar thing before the last election.
One of the other panellists,(it may even have been the host),pointed out a survey that found that while most Australians wouldnt consider themselves particularly religious and are not regular church goers,it is important to most Australians that their political leaders are.

I was a little surprised by that. Personally it wouldnt really bother me if the PM was an Atheist,would it bother you if he/she was?

Freddo Frogs
Posted: 11/16/2009 9:34:07 AM
Can we all just take a deep breath for a second and realise that the coppers are not gonna be throwing the book at a kid for receiving a Freddo Frog and a sign?!

It always staggers me how fast people jump on board to bag the police!
Who wants to be a nightshift copper going to the burbs to break up a domestic?
Who wants to go to a pub to break up a fight between some drunken idiots?
Who wants to arrive at the scene of a car crash to find a dead body/bodies?
Who wants to go inform their loved ones about it?
The list goes on and on and on!

Yet,if were in danger,whos the people we want there NOW?!!

Kid arrested on Freddo Frog theft? News editors around the country would have loved the thought of making that headline news,doesnt mean we have to fall for it though.
In this PR world we live in the cops or the pollies wouldve dropped all charges once it became a story if there was no reason behind the decision.

death and your bodys after life...
Posted: 11/14/2009 10:14:05 AM
Bloody hell,Im about to post 2 John Prine songs in one night! lol

"Please Dont Bury Me"

Woke up this morning,put on my slippers,walked in the kitchen and died
And oh,what a feeling,when my soul went through the ceiling and on off into heaven I did ride
When I got there they did say "John,it happened this a away,you slipped upon the floor and hit your head
and all the angels say,just before you passed away,these were the very last words that you said"

Please dont bury me down in the cold cold ground
No,Id rather have them cut me up and pass me all around
Throw my brain in a hurricane and the blind can have my eyes
And the deaf can take both of my ears if they dont mind the size

Give my stomach to Milwaukee if they run out of beer
Put my socks in a cedar box,just get em out of here!
Venus de Milo can have my arms,look out,Ive got your nose
Sell my heart to the junkman and give my love to Rose

But please dont bury me down in the cold cold ground
Id rather have em cut me up and pass me all around
Throw my brain in a hurricane and the blind can have my eyes
And the deaf can take both of my ears if they dont mind the size

Give my feet to the footloose,careless,fancy free
Give my knees to the needy,dont pull that stuff on me
Hand me down my walking cane,its a sin to tell a lie
Send my mouth way down south and kiss my a s s goodbye

But please dont bury me down in the cold cold ground
Id rather have em cut me up and pass me all around
Throw my brain in a hurricane and the blind can have my eyes
And the deaf can take both of my ears if they dont mind the size

Whats rocks you in a song...., lyrics, tune, rhythm or all of them ??
Posted: 11/14/2009 8:50:21 AM
Its fascinating the way music works differently for different people. I remember my sister used to love Springsteens 'Streets of Philadelphia' till I told her what the song was about....kinda ruined it for her....oops!
But shes interested in lyrics she can sing along with,she really couldnt care less if theres a story in the song as well.

And great songs dont need great lyrics,some great songs dont need lyrics at all.
Great lyrics can add so much though,I dont know what Dylan is on about,(or on),in half of his songs,but I love the fact that he has an imagination that can come up with the images he comes up with. Similar thing with an American songwriter called John Prine,hes incredibly good!!
My Mum works part time at the local hospital here that runs a group that looks after elderly and disabled people a few days a week to give their carers a break and loved this John Prine song when I gave it to her.

"Hello in there"

We had an apartment in the city and me and Loretta liked living there
Itd been years since the kids had grown a life of their own and left us alone
John and Linda live in Omaha and Joe is somewhere on the road
We lost Davy in the Korean War and I still dont know what for,dont matter anymore

Ya know that old trees just grow stronger
and old rivers grow wilder every day
Old people just grow lonesome
waiting for someone to say
Hello in there
Hello

Me and loretta,we dont talk much more,she sits and stares thru the back door screen
And all the news just repeats itself,like some forgotten dream that weve both seen
Someday Ill go and call up Rudy,we worked together at the factory
But what could I say when he asks "Whats new?" Nothing,whats with you? Nothing much to do

Ya know that old trees just grow stronger
and old rivers grow wilder every day
Old people just grow lonesome
waiting for someone to say
Hello in there
Hello

So if youre walking down the street sometime and spot some hollow ancient eyes
Please dont just pass em by and stare as if you didnt care,say hello in there,
hello

ZERO% alcohol for all drivers.... how would that effect your social life?
Posted: 11/6/2009 8:37:17 AM
Living on a farm 20km from town has pretty much made it zero% for me already anyway. Its a LONG walk home from the pub,trust me,Ive done it....and more than once Ill admit!
Its strange the way that 20km doesnt seem that far when you stumble out of a pub in the middle of the night,but it really doesnt. And at the time it doesnt seem that far either,theres only 2 steps to getting home.
Step 1. Put one foot in front of the other
Step 2. repeat Step 1
Geez,your legs do feel it in the morning though! lol

The country town point is interesting. I grew up in a place with a population of about 1000 and a lot of those people lived on farms 20-30km out of town. In those days the coppers had the attitude that if you were gonna come into town for a few drinks on the weekend and take it easy on the way home,theyd turn a blind eye,but if you were planning on getting plastered and driving like an idiot,theyd come down like a ton of bricks on you.

57 channels and nothin' on
Posted: 10/20/2009 11:06:01 AM
Photoman is pulling your leg acorn,'57 channels and nothin' on' is the title of a Springsteen song.

As for the music? Im wondering where todays 'Highway 61 Revisited' is going to come from. That album always used to rate really highly in the polls of the greatest albums of all time so I bought a copy in the early 90s....if memory serves me correctly,it was originally released in 1966,but it blew me away the first time I heard it!

I reckon 'The Sopranos' will be regarded as great TV in 30 years time....but 'Aussie Ladette to Lady'?....'The Apprentice Australia'?....'Big Brother'?....'Border Security'?....'Getaway'?....'Backyard Blitz'?
Id run out of puter ink if I listem them all! lol

57 channels and nothin' on
Posted: 10/19/2009 10:02:54 AM
With the football season over,my TV viewing has dropped of dramatically! Aside from the news,theres really not that much thats worth watching,its all reality crap. It doesnt seem that long ago that Don Burke had his gardening show but,other than that,TV networks spent their money making comedy and drama shows. Ive got no idea why anyone would bother going to NIDA now when you need no acting ability at all to appear on TV.
Its not as though great TV is impossible now,'The Sopranos' would have to be one of the greatest TV shows ever made,but it was made by a cable channel willing to take a risk on something challenging.
And not just drama,where is the modern day 'Seinfeld'?

And not just TV,what was the last classic and timeless album released? When will the next one be? In the computer age of downloading songs,are we headed towards a time where people download the singles they hear on the radio and not bother buying the album?

Movies too. Will Ferrel and Adam Sandler are no Robert de Niro or Al Pacino,yet theyre 2 of the most bankable stars for movie companies. Their movies remind me of the old Police Academy movies,kinda amusing,but ultimately disposable.

I guess thats my question,is modern culture an 'entertain me now' culture or are we just in a temporary drought of timeless art?

Chatting internationally

I think 'lyingcheat' would have to challenge 'worstguyonhere' as the best POF username Ive seen! lol

I reckon at least half of the people I yak to are from other countries,but Im really not on here looking for the love of my life,its just fun talking to people in different places.
Ages ago a Canadian lady got some kinda fixation on me,(hard to believe I know),and told me that she was posting me a portait shed painted....I was dreading picking up the mail,but was pleasantly surprised to find that shed noted that I was a fan of the TV show South Park and a huge Freo Dockers supporter,so shed painted the South Park boys in Dockers jumpers,bless her heart!!
Last I heard she had a kid on the way with a bloke from her town shed met through an orienteering group....nope,no idea what orienteering is! lol

Beers
Posted: 10/10/2009 9:58:55 AM
FINALLY a thread to which I can post with experience and expertise!! lol

Each to their own,but the whole 'boutique beer' thing kinda defeats the purpose of whats great about beer to me. In a way I think of beer like I think of water,(my daytime drink of choice),I dont want different varieties of water,the stuff that falls from the sky tastes pretty bloody good to me!!
After many a long day Ive collapsed on the lounge with a beer and havent been the slightest bit interested in how the beer rolls off my palate or wondered what hops and yeast created this drink,its just tastes good!! lol

The boutique beer industry is taking off a bit though,every now and then you see a story in the paper about a new small time brewer. As I said,to each their own,but I have zero interest in trying a different beer every other weekend,I like the Carlton Midstrengths and have no need to go looking for a new beer....what a loyal beer husband I am! lol

Hey! Hey !..OOoopps.... Redfaced over blackface skit... any thoughts..?
Posted: 10/9/2009 11:17:56 AM
Live to Give makes a valid point of these blokes remembering being marginalised,(if they were),but we have to remember that this was a skit from Red Faces!
The whole kinda point of that segment of the show was people making fools of themselves really. So the Docs were basically reprising a pretty lame and unfunny skit from years and years ago. We need to remember that these are not professional comedians,theyre doctors looking to make gooses of themselves....which they did,but not the way they intended.

Its been interesting to see the reaction around the world on the TV news. At first you get a little defensive at hearing someone label your country as racist,but if were honest,sadly theres a racist minority in a hell of a lot of countries I reckon and were among those countries. I do believe its a minority though,people today,(particularly young people),are far more accepting of anyone,be it their race,their religion,their sexuality etc.

And photoman001?? You say racism is merely a state of mind....and then go on to say that you dont want to be likened to those lawsuit mad sensitive Americans....bit of a sweeping generalisation there mate!! lol

Footy - Who will win the premiership (Go the Saints)
Posted: 9/26/2009 8:13:49 AM
Echoes of last year really,Geelong kicked themselves out of the game then and the Saints did the same again today unfortunately.
Terrific game though,tense right until the final siren.

Advantaged neither team,but the umpiring was bloody awful!! I still have no idea why Milburn had a free kick paid against him on half time and the goal umpire not noticing that Hawkins goal actually hit the post????

But well done to the Cats and bad luck to the Saints,it was a great game to watch!

And Pookie!! The TV coverage started at 6am,it was on the radio all day and the game has been all over the news all week! I went to the seafood place in town today to get munchies to eat watching the game and was having a yak to a Saints fan there who was getting food for a Grand Final party at his place. The Grand Final has been everywhere in WA....do you get your footy coverage by smoke signal or something???? lol

Id imagine its a very individual thing.

Personally Im just on here looking for people to talk to. Through the magic of modern technology I was just talking to a friend in Indiana as she was sitting in her car watching her son play baseball.

I guess itd be different if you were on here looking for romance,maybe then youd need to talk yourself up....or maybe talk yourself down for the reality meeting! lol

Its a lot easier being on here just looking for friends,you can be yourself and if people dont like it,so be it.

Your ABC
Posted: 9/19/2009 7:38:19 AM
Triple J is part of the ABC and does a fantastic job of promoting and giving airtime to up and coming Australian bands,but theyre a nationally broadcast station.

Local content is important,I remember driving the header on my Uncles farm at harvest time and hearing the cricket coverage interrupted by the local harvest bans in the area....I have no argument at all with that kind of local info.

And I wasnt knocking Media Watch,its essential viewing to me! I said that they stressed the importance of local programming,but I wonder how many people are actually interested in what it delivers or would they prefer to hear programming on a more national basis.

It sets up a great Grand Final,Geelong were back to almost their awesome best tonight.

Im not sure what happened in Perth,Pookie,but the game was live in country WA??

A few very dodgy umpiring decisions tonight,but nothing that made any difference to the result. Lets just hope that the umpires let the players play next Saturday too and it should be an absolute ripper!!

Your ABC
Posted: 9/18/2009 1:44:02 PM
It was yet another Friday night when I could have been listening to the pre-game assessment of Friday night football,but instead I was listening to some bloke waffle on about something that Im sure only he was interested in.

The ABC show 'Media Watch' has made a big deal about the ABC having local programming,which is wonderful and ethical and admirable,but geez,ITS BORING!!
Immediately after a Saturday AFL football game we switch to the local WAFL game which generally means going from 50,000 people at the MCG to 500 people at a ground somewhere in Perth. Once again,its kinda admirable that the ABC is supporting local sport,but Im guessing a lot of people turn off the radio like I do.

But my question isnt neccessarily sport related,its do you think local programming on the ABC is interesting or boring as hell?!

Well done to Betty Smith if she finished third in the 5th division of the Mingenew Bowls Club championships....but I really couldnt give a rats!! lol

What a great game! Goes to show footy doesnt have to be high scoring I guess.
Well done to the Saints and the Bulldogs too,and well done to Rodney Eade for facing the TV cameras after such a close loss.

Well done to the umpires too! For once they werent trigger/whistle happy and just let the players play,none of the crap holding the ball and hands in the back free kicks....well,not too many anyway.
Lets hope Saturday nights game is umpired the same way.

Consider this Docker well and truly on the Saints bandwagon for the next week!!

Posted: 9/14/2009 8:27:21 AM
Geez robfish,if we at Freo suck,why cant your beloved Egos beat us? lol

The reason we didnt make the finals wasnt because of injuries or retirements or bad umpiring,it was because were not good enough yet. That elusive first flag is a while away I reckon,but hey,theyre my team.

Im not sure what the problem is with having 4 Victorian teams left,theyve been the best 4 teams all year so it should make for 2 great prelim finals and a ripper Grand Final!

And Pookie,theres lots of arrogant supporters out there,but coaches in particular are usually loathe to be perceived as arrogant and give ammo to other teams.
And Im glad to hear ya dont actually find the place too repulsive! lol

Its a shame that arrogance has got into Geelong the way it has,I was really thrilled when they won in 2007 and broke the long drought. Then Mark Thompson starts casually eating burgers while his team is thrashing West Coast last year and this year casually says how the Cats are going to come over and "Smash Freo".

So its the Bulldogs or the Saints for me,regardless of whether theyre playing the Cats or the Maggies.

Footy - Who will win the premiership (Go the Saints)
Posted: 9/11/2009 6:49:13 AM
Well done to the Bulldogs tonight,I was actually hoping for a Saints vs Bulldogs Grand Final,but that aint gonna happen. So the winner of their game next week is the team for this Freo boy!!

Glad to see Brisbane gone,not because Ive got anything against the Lions,but itll be nice not to see Kevin 07 there pretending hes a footy fan!

Always seems a little weird that 8 teams play,but only 2 go out.
Looking forward to the Saints vs the Magpies....wouldnt want to play Adelaide after Fridays game and the long break theyll have!!

And so ends another season for we frustrated Freo fans.

Not sure which bandwagon to jump on for September,but a Saints/Bulldogs grand final would have me hoping both of them win.

Australian Foods... just what have they become?
Posted: 8/27/2009 11:54:17 AM
Ive only ever eaten roo once,the blokes that lived on the other house on the farm had a bonfire party and one of them marinaded up some roo kebabs.
He cooked them for his tastebuds though,while he was enjoying his kebab,the rest of us were drowning our throats in beer to put out the fire of all those chillis!! lol

Mexican and Italian food for me please,theres people that understand flavour!!
There used to be a very popular Mexican restaurant here called Los Amigos that everyone called Los Amemory because it was the beginning of a big night generally! lol....I do miss that Mexican food though!!

What is the archetypal Aussie meal anyway? I cant think of one.

Does a Fully Coherent You, Have the Rite to chose How/When to Die ?
Posted: 8/12/2009 10:02:44 AM
I hadnt heard that and theres a couple of ways of looking at it.

Im guessing the right to life groups would suggest he has past suicidal tendencies and his desire to end his life is at least partially based on that.

You could also say that this poor bugger has not only got his physical problems,hes also got mental illness on top of that to battle.

In this particular case,still his decision to make I reckon,no one elses.

The public opinion on this mans case in WA has been overwhelmingly in favour of him and his right to end his misery. Its strange the way that politicians of both major parties here dont want their opinion heard though,normally theyll jump onto any public opinion bandwagon. It really bemuses me,on such a high profile story in the media,their silence has been deafening!

Obviously for any future euthanasia policy there would have to be strict guidelines in place,but I get a little offended at people telling him he has to live his life of misery.
Apparently his nursing home isnt capable of hosting a court hearing,so hell have to appear in court himself,(causing him even more discomfort),and have to sit in a court alongside right to life groups and their lawyers who will be right there in the room with him making a case to prolong HIS misery because of THEIR beliefs!

If any pro life supporters were unfortunate enough to find themselves in his position I would fully respect that decision and expect taxpayers money to be spent making their life as comfortable as possible. And it would be THEIR decision to make,as far as Im concerned,this is not their decision to make,its not my decision to make,its his decision to make.

Canadian moving to Brisbane area!

Canadian mates of mine moved to Cairns,(north of Brisbane),and I really thought they wouldnt be able to handle the heat and humidity,but they love it!
One half of the couple holds dual citizenship,(Aussie Mum),and theyve bought a house,had a couple of kids and are here for good they reckon.

Useless memory retention
Posted: 8/8/2009 11:42:59 AM
I was watching Millionaire Hot seat the other arvo and one of the questions was something like 'how many members of The Famous Five were human?'
Immediately my mind started singing 'Julian,Dick and Anne,George and Timmy the dog'....kinda wish I DIDNT remember that! lol

I can remember my long expired video library membership number off the top of my head,but Ill have to stop and think about what I had for dinner last night!

We all delete useless stuff from our computers,what things are stuck in your memory and of no use that youd delete if you could?

I live on a farm and buy gas bottles for my hot water system and stove....so why is an empty gas bottle light and a full one heavy....gas doesnt weigh a hell of a lot does it?

But I actually enjoy the mystery of it all....besides,I could never fool anyone into believing I was intelligent anyway! lol

Footy - Who will win the premiership (Go the Saints)
Posted: 7/29/2009 8:07:24 AM
Geez Pookie,I never thought Id see the day when Id say this to someone,but youre actually too arrogant to be an Eagles supporter! lol

Theres support for non WA teams here,but the vast majority either support Freo or West Coast and the Derby will always rate well,regardless of the ladder positions of both teams. Theres not a lot of WA on The Footy Show or Footy Classified and thats understandable given that theyre Melbourne based shows.
Before Mick Malthouse was Collingwood coach,(the birds that dont fly lol),he was constantly moaning about the amount of travel his Eagles did compared to other clubs....but thats the way it is,theres 16 clubs and only 2 from WA,so well always travel more than anyone else.

The Derby certainly wasnt the best game of the weekend,but it was the game most people here would have been interested in.
Theres a perception here that Victorians think footy is THEIR game and your attitude makes a bloody good case for that argument actually! lol

I guess the Eagles/arrogance thing comes from listening to too much Saturday morning talkback radio and hearing whoever from whatever suburb begin by saying,"Yeah,Gday guys,Im an Eagles supporter,but Im calling to say whats wrong with the Dockers"....and these people seriously dont understand why we hate them???? lol

Aside from the result,the Derby was a shocker! But Mark Harvey has the right idea,play the kids. We play the Western Bulldogs this weekend and will probably get the same flogging we gave the Bulldogs a few years ago when they were playing their kids.

Thats life,you cant win all the time. Footy itself is pretty great though I reckon,St Kilda,Geelong and the Bulldogs are fantastic teams to watch play....hopefully the Bulldogs have a big Friday night on the town this week though! lol

Beware the fast finishing FREO!! lol

Great game though,not sure who Id be barracking for if its the Cats and Saints in the Grand Final. On one hand Id like to see St Kilda get another flag,but geez,Geelong are a great team to watch playing footy.

The Final Curtain for Jacko!!!!!

I cant say I was ever that interested in Michael Jackson the person that much,the same way as Im really not that interested in Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie.

So when I think of Michael Jackson I think of that time in the early to mid 80s when all those huge albums came out. Those were my teenage years and Madonna had her 'Like a Virgin' album,Prince had 'Purple Rain',Bruce Springsteen had 'Born in the USA',Cyndi Lauper had 'Shes so unusual' and Michael Jackson had 'Thriller'.

I dont have any firm opinions on the bloke at all,but if you go by the old adage 'trust the art,not the artist',then Id say the art stands up pretty bloody well!

Though Keith Richards did say something like "The only Art I know is a guy named Arthur"....gotta love Keith Richards!! lol

About 15 years ago I went to visit my brother in Canada for a few weeks and he took me to a bar where it was a custom to toss the shells from the complimentary peanuts onto the floor. It was an interesting sight,Im glad I wasnt on vaccuum cleaner duties the next day!
