I doubt many other Canadians know about this, but my 7 year old son, who is obssessed with sharks, oceans, world populations, countries mortality rates and for some reason Australia let the family in on a little fact. He has a book full of geographical info and in it, it's written that January 26th is Australia Day. He got pretty excited and has been talking about it for a week now. Although we live thousands of miles away and our national day is July 1st, he still wanted to celebrate it.

 

I tried convincing him that Australia is an island full of criminals, but he didn't buy into it. (he doesn't know as much about history as he does geography) Therefore I wanted to try and make him understand the weirdness found on the world's largest island. I was about show him the semi naked picture of Geoff with a can of food covering his privates, his unatural relationship with Matt and then view the film Crocodile Dundee II. I thought better of it and after vomiting a bit in my mouth, I came up with a better plan. My wife and I went to a store, bought an oversized Aussie flag for him to hang in his room, a box of Tim Tam Cookies for dessert (which are damn good BTW) and a eucalyptis plant for the living room.

 

To make a long enough story shorter....

Haha. Sounds like your son is more intelligent than the entire Great Britain. :lol:

 

Anyway, thanks for the kind wishes sir. And thanks to the Brits for leaving us the goods while they returned back to England. Sorry your ancestors got it so wrong. :tumbsup:

I'd have had no idea, other than Craig Ferguson mentioned it the other night on The Late Late Show. (Actually he began the show with a bit too.)

(The Australia bit starts around 4:09. He riffs on just about every Australian stereotype possible, while throwing in jabs at many other things along the way. Craig is the best host on late night television.)

    • Hey everyone, Johnny Leigh has made it into the final stretch in the new steel panther bassist search, we need everyone to go to this link and vote for him, this is fucking HUGE!  this was the bassist for Young & Fabulous, I just met him but he's one of the coolest guys ive met, and he's a fucking bad ass bass player.   https://steelpantherrocks.com/pages/the-road-to-the-road?fbclid=IwAR0o6fG03T_b3iuJCrqENuets5sX_XkvTHZCy_2ODjhL1xyiHzTK9qMJwC0
    • Haha poor DLR. But Axl is one of the most under or over-rated singers depending what camp you are in. I think he is great.
    • Wow, this'd make me happy. 
    • didn't see this coming??? https://www.facebook.com/100044481307670/posts/443250043834369/  
    • Intrigued who you didn't know. Assume it's the couple I quickly looked up, lol. 1. Gronwall. Love both versions of HEAT but Gronwall undoubtedly has the stronger voice.  2. I went with Rexon, but only because we only have such a small sample size of Keyes? Is he still even in Crashdiet? As much as I love Crazy Lixx, I have to say, if I knew more about this Keyes fella I'd probably pick him because on voice alone, I wouldn't say I'm a Rexon fan. Thankfully his band is killer.  3. Whiteman. lol, I like the guy but not many he'd beat in this. Since I haven't heard Rhino Bucket for a few decades, for good reason, I had to give it to Whiteman. 4. Gotta go with Axl. Again, not a mad fan of his voice, but respect is due for his range. Never thought much of DLR at all, so Axl in this one easily.  5. Again, don't really like either of these guys' voice to be fair. Love Keel, but, gotta say, on a purely vocal level, is Ron Keel the worst vocalist in all of hard rock? Quite possibly (not including that ass licker from The Darkness, of course). Don't like Shortino, but admittedly when he sings the more melodic/commercial stuff he actually scrubs up pretty good (eg. Badd Boyz). So my pick is Shortino. 6. lol, two more voices I don't individually like. Swan sound so strained all the time, and I never quite loved Tramp's voice, despite being in a sensational band. I actually went with Swan in this instance.  7. Hetfield over Mustaine. Don't really care for either, but content with my pick.  8. Jizzy goes alright, was never a fan of McMaster. Much as I liked Dangerous Toys, his voice was pretty awful at time, to be fair.  9. Bach, easily. Love Steelheart and Mike, but Bach all the way. 10. Wow, surprised by this result so far. Prime Dokken is as good as it gets, but on a purely vocal level, definitely got to give this one to Meniketti, who's a pretty damn fine vocalist.  11. Easy one. Not a fan of Vescera, love Tempest (especially when he was still making good music). 12. Another pretty straightforward one. Blades is solid, but Gramm has an unmistakably fantastic voice.   
    • CRT is what they are trying to force into our elementary schools, it teaches kids that they have privilege if they are white, if they are black they are oppressed, and no matter what they do in life all the rules and laws in this country are racist and rigged so if your a minority its all working against you, it's garbage, and it's further proof that these fucking cockroaches really are not interested in trying to improve race relations in the US, they are only into playing identity politics and making sure racism not only survives but thrives, if racism goes away then so does their meal ticket.
