    Well, house prices are definitely lower the closer you are to being nowhere near anything.
    My parents want to retire in Proston because they can actually afford a place there.

    So, last weekend, I had to get up at 4am on Saturday!

    And at 4am on Sunday!

    Both times, to go into the city in order to help out with the Sydney Triathlon.

    Anyone else there/watching it?

    I'm kinda glad, I don't really like the idea that I would sleep through an earthquake, I'd like to think I'd wake up so as to be able to react to it.

    Well, the kind of earthquake you're likely to sleep through is the kind you won't need to react to. And that one was 3.7 apparently, not really strong enough to do any damage unless you're unlucky. I've been in one that strong before and the only thing I did was grab my computer monitor to stop the picture I had sitting on it from falling off (it was an old CRT monitor). I've also been in a 6.0 quake and while I freely admit, it scared the crap out of me, by the time I'd decided 'yeah, probably should get under some cover now' it was over. Good thing the worst that happened was Mary and Joseph fell over (from the nativity scene) - this was a couple of days before Christmas in Christchurch last year.

    Oh knowledgable and gravitationally confusing ones, I seek wisdom about your silly country and your bizzare manner of speaking.

    I was talking with a friend about storms and weather and I remembered that you Australian types have an odd name for storms. We in the atlantic call them hurricanes, Asian folks call them typhoons but if I remember correctly, Australians call them "wally-wallys" or something equally strange. Am I remembering this correctly or has my mind finally gone completely?

    Typhoons and hurricanes we call cyclones. You're talking about willy-willies. Most Australians know them as the little swirls of wind you'll get on a quadrangle or wherever, like mini-tornadoes. But way out in the desert, so I'm told, you can get willy-willies that are actually full-blown tornadoes - they just usually happen way away from where anyone can see them.
    Shame on you all, not knowing he meant willy-willy!

    EDIT: Well, that's actually a surprise. I didn't think Australia had the right sort of climate to spawn tornadoes. I know you folks get water spouts from time to time along the coastlines but in the central deserts as well? Huh.

    We have a big ol' desert and windy areas... There was actually a thing I think sometime last year, though, where there were a bunch of them on the coast, and suddenly everyone was all "wait, we get tornadoes here?! "

    Once in a blue moon, we even get fairly weak ones in the UK as well.

    Now that I think about it, it does make a certain sense in a way. Your beers are bigger, your BBQs are more interesting, you have Ayer's Rock while we have a small boulder on the outskirts of Luton...it figures that your tornadoes would be bigger and more impressive as well. >.>

    Probably. They're still not very common though. The weather conditions for them are still considerably more common in America.

    And one mustn't get dust-devils and tornadoes confused.

    Not really. We rarely ever have anything in the way of a significant storm. Occasionally you might get one up on the coast, but other than that, eh.

    According to reviews, The Secret of Monkey Island was the single greatest and funniest game of all time. According to those same reviews, Monkey Island 2: LeChuck's Revenge did the impossible and was better. Who's ever heard of a sequel that was better than the original? Especially one as good as that was.


    Now presented in HD (1080P) graphics with remastered music, audio, and brand new voice recordings, you can switch between the old and new versions of the games seamlessly in the middle of the game by pressing a single key. Highly recommended!

    I remember mentioning them to a friend of mine once and she went 'Oh is that their actual name?!' - her grandfather is Australian and mentioned them once, but apparently he's a bit of a joker and she was convinced that he was just messing with her.

    There was a tornado in Australind (1.5 hours south of Perth) a couple of years ago. Went barreling right down the street my mother-in-law lives on. Fortunately, she was okay - house next door? not so much. Kinda threw everyone for a loop though.

    Monkey island is my favourite game and I will never, ever get tired of it. I still have my Monkey island Madness CD that I got in 96, which has the first two in the glorious 8 bit with limited colours and midi music.

    This is the only way to play it, IMHO.
