but in just a few more post (4 i think) you won't be. and if you care, you can look up in the information and announcement thread the various titles.. they are fun, but in some ways meaningless.

some members have changed names.. so their current standing at addict, or old hand doesn't really give a complete picture to how long they have been posting.. others like the AsP --have to kick and scream, and get faldage off line so they can get on..

some of us have highspeed always on connections, some have convienent access as work (and waste way to much time doing awad instead of work..) some of us write long posts..
some post a word or two.. but everywhere.

the titles are there.. some us, no matter what the title are always stranger than other..

A quote from the second of Max's links: "While wondering if the other nations of the world weren't perhaps making fun of him, a cautious Bush granted approval for most axes, although he rejected the establishment of the Axis of Countries Whose Names End in "Guay," accusing one of its members of filing a false application. Officials from Paraguay, Uruguay, and Chadguay denied the charges.

Israel, meanwhile, insisted it didn't want to join any Axis, but privately, world leaders said that's only because no one asked them."


Brilliant ... how does one get a job with these people?

News Item: "Pictures of women in swimsuits have been banned from tourist promotional material for next month's Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting in Australia because they might offend Muslim delegates."

Ah, those delegates are so tolerant of other ways of life. "When they are in Rome, the Romans must do as they do."

In reply to:

Are you sure it wasn't because no one axed them?

I received this in an email today. I'm not sure I agree with all of them, but...

You know it's Summer in Oz when...

* The best parking place is determined by shade instead of distance.
* Hot water now comes out of both taps.
* You can make sun tea instantly.
* You learn that a seat belt buckle makes a pretty good branding iron.
* The temperature drops below 35 degrees (Celcius) and you feel a little chilly.
* You discover that in February it only takes 2 fingers to steer your car.
* You discover that you can get sunburned through your car window.
* You actually burn your hand opening the car door.
* You break a sweat the instant you step outside at 7:30 a.m.
* Your biggest bicycle wreck fear is, "What if I get knocked out and end up lying on the pavement and cook to death?"
* You realize that asphalt has a liquid state.
* The birds have to use potholders to pull worms out of the ground.
* The potatoes cook underground, so all you have to do is pull one out and add butter, salt, and pepper.
* Farmers are feeding their chickens crushed ice to keep them from laying hard-boiled eggs.
* The cows are giving evaporated milk.
* The trees are whistling for the dogs.
* Your best friends in summer just happen to have air conditioning or a pool
* You remind yourself for the nth year in a row to buy a new car that has airconditioning
* You sleep more often in your back yard than you do in your house
* You think living in Antarctica can't be that bad

Well, it's been hot, but it's headed towards 100 posts. It will surely implode in the face of all those gratuitous insults ...
