    we survive by toughening the fuck up (kidding)

    seriously though, last summer my place was infested with funnel web spiders, good times!

    well not quite infested but i caught about 10 of the nasty looking buggers
    You must be a southerner,up here in Qld we have the redback spider,you just don't go picking up old bit's of tin and alike,anything really dry,give you a nasty bite,you don't hear of many people dying from it though,they tend to get quite sick.

    You can have the funnel web at least we can spot a redback easily.

    There have been NO recorded deaths due to redback bites. Those fuckers don't leave any witnesses!

    Well, we have here in the Northeast USA a plant called the stinging nettle.
    AND WE MAKE TEAS OUT OF IT!!!!

    I get the impression however, that making a tea from the Gympie plant would be the first step towards some sort of implosive self-immolation.


    When I first read "stinging tree" - I expected to see something like the plant from the little shop of horrors...this is not the case.

    On top of the flora and fauna killing you. Our local electricity is between 220 and 240 ish volts.
    (it's meant to be 240 volts)

    Not a measly 110 volts!

    It'll kill ya in a much more fun way!
    It's twice the voltage (Which will do fuck all to you) at half the amperage (Which will do fuck nothing to you) at 50Hz... but essentially mains will kill you everywhere, one will char you (Higher amperage) the other might smoke you.


    Almost did to me recently at a gig. A douche bag decided to jump over me while I was patching power. Kicked over a schooner of coke on my arm. Coke conducts electricity.



    Spent the best part of a day in emergency while a deadline slipped by.

    Before this happened I already had a healthy hatred for hip hop. (or locally called skip hop)

    Dare say my feelings for said supposed rhythmic noise have developed a tad.
    Ahhhh... yes, see, people talk about the big tragedies in the world, famine, floods, wars, but they forget one of the biggest tragedies...

    Please note: This message is only for Australians and other crazy crocodile wrestling, stingray poking peoples around the globe...

    You haven't lived if you did not receive a 380V 3 phase shock yet.

    Best try it with dry hands, with the tips of your fingers only. Make sure that you get the full experience by touching the bus across two of the three phases, and not take the wimpy back door of only 220V by using neutral...







    Seriously... DO NOT try this ANYWHERE!
    If you survive, you will feel seriously kicked up and weak for about two days

    If you want to die, guaranteed, use 300V DC. If you survive the jolt, you can die from suffocation in two to three days, when your current batch of red blood cells naturally expires.

    Main power kill Not because of the voltage or the current, but because of the Power. Power (P) = Voltage (V) x Current (A). So if you have any of the two in abundance, you might find yourself being cooked. Higher voltages do have a way to get into your body a bit easier though...

    Australian Hip-hop is actually Austrian. And so is Fosters and Paul Hogan.

    No trust me, it's definitely Austrian. And according to my kiwi cousin so is Russell Crowe.

    He's confused Australia with New Jersey.

    Common occurrence, as in each, it's almost impossible to reach adolescence with all ones limbs.

    Soon, as I arrive WITH cheese fries... The confusion will grow.

    Eventually... My cheese fry empire will eclipse the friendly and playful blue ring octopus and the cuddly eastern brown snake as the most endearing fixtures of the Australian tourism market.

    Company stock goes public 15 minutes after I clear customs at Tullamarine.

    Buy early. Buy often.

    Kill me. No really. Just fucking kill me.

    They both consume copious amounts of grass and make stupid noises attempting to communicate with people. The only problem is it's not legal to cull both and we only turn one into dog food.

    Was this guy certain it was a roo? The reason I ask is because it sounds like something Halligan would do after a night at the pub where they'd shut him off and thrown him out.
