Drat. You were never meant to find out that the cute and cuddly looking critters are killers to. Go on, jump in the pool :twisted:

Pfft, it's Australia. No one believed they weren't vicious killers.

True, true. There's barely any organic lifeforms in Australia that won't try to kill you, one way or another. :D

Actually, I would say that applies to most creatures around the world. And we have wildlife here that isn't deadly as much as [EFF!]ING ANNOYING! Peewees and Crested Pigeons top the list for me personally at the moment, because over the past few months, a specimen each of those species has been attacking our windows whenever our [EFF!]ing back is turned! :x

Anyway, more on the Savile Saga:

What leaves me speechless? Not so much that the circus did the ad, as much as the immigration officials pushing them to do it. :roll:

Just checked my beef burgers in the fridge.... and they're off.
What's up with this glass? Excuse me? Excuse me? This is my glass? I don't think so. My glass was full! And it was a bigger glass!
