First topic message reminder :

As the old thread is reaching its max again, I thought I would set up a whole new 20 spare pages for you all to talk about things neither cultural or Cup based.

Not that it makes a difference.

All anthropod, cortex and mild stereotyping of northerners welcome in here.

Just don't ask about the 2014 cup competition though.

Couple of Aussie spider related stories/facts that will get Tina's juices flowing:

I believe the venom of funnel web spiders on Fraser Island is 8 times more deadly than the Sydney funnel web. I was less worried about them than the bloddy massive cane toads that hung about the shower blocks at one the of the camp sites and just stared at you as you showered. It was like going to the gym with Truss.

I worked as a ride operator for a couple of months at Sydney's Wonderland (a complete misnomer) way out in the Western Suburbs. One of the first jobs we had to do every morning was a spider check on the ride you were operating that day. Generally used to find a couple of redbacks and the odd hunstman. Once found, we had to clear them away and were instructed in the ultra hi-tec method of flicking the spider away with a clipboard. All things equal, it was the best job I ever had.

I vividly remember the yellow rings around their joints. Horrible things.

Tiger sharks patrol the shores as well.

You showered on Fraser??

We were only on the island for 3 days/2 nights and I we all shower-dodged. Staying on the beach the first night and the second at a 'campsite' of sorts where we just had a bit of a wash, no more.

Got lucky though, car (jeep) of 8 people and only 2 of us could drive so didn't have to share the fun around too much Smile

True story c. 1981.

One sunny Saturday morning I was out in the back yard with Dad... he was tinkering around with a broom near the pool. Next thing we hear in this horrified voice: "Andre... Andre!!!" (Dad's name) We stick our head over the fence and there is dear old Kath (related to Rick McCosker who got his jaw broken in the Centenary Test) with this massive female funnel web (less venomous) on the tip of one of her gloves. Heavy material they were but the fangs went right through. My Dad then says "Don't worry Kat..." (he had a thick Hungarian accent) grabbed a glass jar and got the thing in it. It was rearing up and very angry looking... the spider, not Dad. I can still hear all the words clearly as if it were yesterday.

At that point I ran inside and grabbed my copy of Australia's Venomous Wildlife... foreword by Eric Worrell*. It had this big picture of an angry looking funnel web on the inside cover and all the details in the main text. So I proudly went up to Kath, stuck the book in front of her face and said "this is what bit you, Mrs McCosker!.... it says you only have two hours, at most.... to live. She just went "Ooooooh......."

Anyway, to cut a long story short. She survived. Ambulance to RNSH to get the antidote (which had only been developed that year). She always said afterwards that it was the funniest thing to do really... but it sort of made her fight on a bit.

* Poor Eric eventually succumbed to the 128th snake bite while at work in his reptile park at Gosford. The bloke's blood was said to be lethal!

Nasty. Bull sharks are supposed to be the most aggressive though. Some experts think they are responsible for a lot of attacks that get blamed on Great whites.

Bull sharks can regulate the salt in their bodies and have been found 1000 of kilomotres up fresh water rivers. Amazing.

Come on, Tino, I know that you get quite excited about fauna but don't let your excitement cloud your judgement as to what is and what isn't acceptable in a post.

And what the hell is "some experts" supposed to mean?  Is that something that was suggested by a C-rate actor narrating a pseudo-documentary.

Thanks for the continued wildlife-related information, though, thanks a lot.

The bull sharks come right up the Harbour... some have been found close to the weir at Parramatta - 25 km/15 miles inland. Very aggressive sharks. They often attack unwitting dogs who go for a quick paddle.

There's a story (I don't know if it's true or an urban myth) of a father with his young son and their dog on a jetty in the Lane Cove River. The kid accidentally falls in... then almost immediately there was a violent rustle in the water. The father sees the shark fin so grabs the mutt and tosses it between the boy and the shark. The kid gets pulled out somehow but unfortunately the poor dog wasn't so lucky.

There are signs everywhere telling people not to swim in these tributaries - shark icon with a swimmer and a big red cross over the swimmer... just for those who can't understand English.

Can't remember too much about the lizards but those toads were like Baron Silas Greenback - the dingos were pretty cool.

Apparently similar situation in Durban. They put the amount of shark attacks down to the estuarine waters being cloudy from silt carried from inland. I just think it is because they are murderous barstewards.

25km? 1000 km? What is a few km's between friends.

I am going to assume it is a true story and not a myth. I would happily sacrifice a dog for at least 2 of my kids.

I think bull sharks have really bad eyesight, I am sure it is them. Their other senses are really strong and can/will attack in unclear water more than other sharks.

Well how far in are the Noosa Everglades??

We almost cacked ourselves when we only saw the Warning: Bull Sharks sign AFTER we got out of swimming in them! Had done a day's worth of canoeing to get there so must've been a bit of distance.

You'd have been fine. Sharks tend to steer clear of manatees.

Happy Birthday, Rowley.   cake  Ale 

Maybe still Tuesday there but it's already Wednesday here... so I thought I'd get in early.

Got anything special lined up for tomorrow evening, Geoff?
Or will you most likely have a quiet one curled up with the Jack Johnson book in a muscle soothing Radox bath?

Anyway mate... have a great day.... tomorrow.

Getting ahead of myself Jules. I blame those bloody South Africans.  Wink 

edited above for you...

Just "rescued" a tiny slug from my bathroom. No idea how it got in there. Through the window? Anyway, just tossed the little fella outside into the waiting jaws of my pet bull shark - which has a habit of sleeping walking from the pond.

The South African police forensic team "rescued" four slugs from Pistorius' bathroom.

What did everyone have for lunch? Ploughman's lunch again or slug n' pistorious pasta special?

Don't know why... but Hashim Amla sort of reminds me of a young Abe Lincoln. (if you squint your eyes)

I knew Abe Lincoln. Abe Lincoln was a friend of mine. Amla, you're no Abe Lincoln.

Is that a Covent Garden effort? Have something similar in the fridge, their broccoli and stilton is pretty good.

Location : Outside there's a box car waiting, outside the family stew. Out by the fire breathing, outside we wait till face turns blue. I know the nervous walking, I know the dirty beard hangs. Out by the box car waiting, take me away to nowhere plans. There is a wait so long (so long, so long). You'll never wait so long. Here comes Julius. Here comes Julius. Here comes Julius.

Classic JHM anecdote. Especially the part where you reverse over an urchin in your Morgan.

Yep, good spot. One of my faves. Found the brocc & stilton nice but pongy.

Other regular faves include:

Minestrone
Chicken & Veg
Patatas Bravas
Pea, ham & leek

The lentil and smoked bacon is deelish too, but too high calorie count Sad
