Australia: The Land Where Everything IS Trying to Kill You


THAT’S right everyone- of course I would do an Australian themed Holy Roman Party. Or should I say HOLY AUSTRALIAN PARTY! Australia is the land of Dangerous Animals, dangerous weather, and dangerous women! Our cemeteries are so full cause everyone is dying to get in them! It’s a land where most of the people believe that centuries of injustice to the aboriginal peoples can be wiped away by a little apology!

Oh, and by the by, Australia’s military record is pretty good too! You would expect people from a land where the weather, women and animals are so dangerous to be pretty decent shots- and hardy! Aussies and New Zealanders paired together in World War One creating one of the world’s most iconic and instantly recognised acronyms- ANZAC. Australia is proud (and very defensive) of its ANZAC tradition- so fine travellers, when you get to Australia don’t mention that most of our troops in WW1 were aggressive and violent thieves and brawlers, even though they most certainly were!











Although Australians love to break the rules, these are some that cannot be broken in this thread:

1.Don’t be a flamin Galah (look this up if necessary)! No Flaming

2.Trolls were left behind in Europe due to the lack of space on the convict ships. No Trolling

3.Fishing is one of Australia’s prime industries, we just don’t like competition. No Baiting

4.We really tire of hearing how we are all descended from convicts- so don’t tell us more then once a week! No double posting unless a week has passed

5.Only the golden oldies still love a nice tin of heavily processed meat! No Spam

6.We landed on Australia because we stole rule 6.

7.And then once released we went and stole rule 7.

8.Here in Aussie, a bit of stupidity- like trying to tickle a brown snake, can get you killed. No Stupidity! But the long hot days need a bit of humour to help them pass. Silliness, on the other hand, is allowed

Not much here. Happily fietsing around waiting to bump into Terikel.

Yes, although there has been a recent spate of spam threads for some reason ...

That was my fault. I met some Russian girls at a pub, and well, one thing led to another, and now they are doing all they can for a repeat performance. That includes harassing me here, with spam as bait.

They really should stop. They weren't all that good, despite their nubile bodies and willingness to use it. They lack experience, but make up for that with vigor. Still, when one crosses onto this side of a thousand, quality is nice.

We have a truckload or two arriving shortly.

Until then, can I offer you some decent honey mead? We still have a half-barrel of that left. But you must hurry, others are draining it fast.

Hail mighty comrades. I have just returned from a noble quest where I cleansed the heaven of Total War: Rome 2 of foul spambots and their insidious offers to increase the size of one's manhood.

I come here now to drink and rest in the company of good comrades. *opens a barrel of ale and dunks head inside to drink*

Hail and wassail.

Those nasty spambots have been invading us as well. The Banhammer has been booking overtime hours!

The spambots do make a lovely splotch of red, almost as intriguing as those Rohrschats paintings the headshrinkers rave about.

In other news, I attended Star Wars Celebration in Orlando this past week. The reports and other articles about the lines and crowds don't do the reality justice, it was an absolute madhouse but I was able to meet and take pictures with Felicity Jones, Hayden Christensen and Ian McDiarmid which was a dream come true. Also saw George Lucas and Harrison Ford at a distance and people went absolutely crazy when the latter appeared at the 40th Anniversary panel.

Wasn't Wedge like the top skyjock on Tatooine, and Luke's best friend, before Luke got his shit together?

Not sure, but I recently found out that he was originally a TIE fighter pilot, and defected to the Rebels.

From what I recall of Star Wars lore, it was Biggs Darklighter who was Luke's best friend from Tatooine and was the pilot of the snowspeeder on Hoth.

Could be. I remember Luke calling out "Wedge!" in one scene near or just after *** spoiler alert*** the destruction of the original Death Star.

I do recall reading the name Biggs in one of the books. But tht was several lifetimes ago.

Wedge got sort of hit and had to pull out of the final run, but was otherwise OK in Star Wars

Thanks.

I need to introduce my kid to Star Wars.

It will be a hard and long battle. She's too much into the Walking Dead right now.

She's into gore and visible entrails. (Like her daddy! )

A space-chase and laser battles just don't excite her very much.

Poor thing.

*Puts on Star Wars hat*

Biggs Darklighter was Luke Skywalker's childhood friend who flew with Red Squadron at the Battle of Yavin but he was killed by Darth Vader on Luke's trench run. (That awkward moment when you realize your dad killed your best friend)

The one who flew with Luke as the gunner in their Snowspeeder at the Battle of Hoth was Dak Ralter. He killed/knocked out when their Snowspeeder took blaster fire before getting crushed by an AT-AT after Luke was shot down.
