  1. An AR is a 'naughty' gun in Oz and something that now I'll never be able to own.
  2. Two elderly gentlemen from a retirement center were sitting on a bench under a tree when one turns to the other and says: 'Slim, I'm 83 years old now and I'm just full of aches and pains. I know you're about my age. How do you feel?' Slim says, 'I feel just like a newborn baby.' 'Really!? Like a newborn baby!?''Yep. No hair, no teeth, and I think I just wet my pants.'
  3. Australia vs USA - Who has the brightest brass Ok ..... a little tongue in cheek On my new Lyman Cyclone Wet tumbler its states that at US 120v it turns at 60rpm and at Oz 240v it turns at 50rpm that equates to the winner as - 3,600 turns per hour US 3,000 turns per hour Oz (600 less) 7,200 turns per 2 hours US 6000 turns per 2 hours Oz (1200 less) 10,800 turns per 3 hours US 9000 turns per 3 hours Oz (1500 less) There's a daily dose of some useless information for you
  4. To be honest Larsen, I can't even remember how many years its been since the last time I saw an Aboriginal person. I suppose maybe its a little like asking how many Sioux or Cherokee shoot CAS. I thought there'd be a lot more African Americans involved in CAS/SASS, but reading all the archived Chronicles I haven't seen any photos. From the history I've read they were a big part of the West and are leading parts in so many Western movies and stories. Is this something that SASS has missed the boat on? (There are a lot of blond hair blue eyed folks who 'identify' as Aboriginal here. You only have to tick the box or say 'yes' when asked "Do you identify as Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander" and and a lot of benefits come your way).

  9. My Dad smoked 60 a day and my Mum had exactly two each evening.
  10. I don't have anything at all against smoking, I was a smoker and stopped 30 years ago even though I still sometimes have the urge to bum one when I see someone light up. I have a cousin, he and his wife both smoke a pack of 40's a day......each pack costs $50.00 (the govt must be making a killing on the taxes!!!!) That's - $100.00 per day $700.00 per week $3,000.00 per month $35,600 per year $356,000 over a decade I have some hobbies that cost a bit of money, my cousin often says to me that he'd love to be able to afford some of the hobbies I enjoy, but he can't afford to.
  11. Interesting, I read that Kevin Costner has turned Democrat (does Democrat mean automatically anti gun?) amazing all these actors (if they are anti gun) make so much money from gun orientated films......pretty damn hypocritical,
  12. Fireplace won't be getting used for the next 5 months
  13. My doctor says floaters are healthier than sinkers.
  14. An Australian ventriloquist visiting New Zealand walks into a small village and sees a local sitting on his porch patting his dog. He figures he'll have a little fun, so he says to the Kiwi: "G'day, mind if I talk to your dog?" Villager: "The dog doesn't talk, you stupid Aussie." Ventriloquist: "Hello dog, how's it going mate?" Dog: "Yeah, doin' all right." Kiwi: (look of extreme shock) Ventriloquist: "Is this villager your owner?" (pointing at the villager) Dog: "Yep" Ventriloquist: "How does he treat you?" Dog: "Yeah, real good. He walks me twice a day, feeds me great food and takes me to the lake once a week to play." Kiwi: (look of utter disbelief) Ventriloquist: "Mind if I talk to your horse?" Kiwi: "Uh, the horse doesn't talk either....I think." Ventriloquist: "Hey horse, how's it going?" Horse: "Cool" Kiwi: (absolutely dumbfounded) Ventriloquist: "Is this your owner?" (Pointing at the villager) Horse: "Yep" Ventriloquist: How does he treat you? Horse: "Pretty good, thanks for asking. He rides me regularly, brushes me down often and keeps me in the barn to protect me from the elements." Kiwi: (total look of amazement) Ventriloquist: "Mind if I talk to your sheep?" Kiwi: (in a panic) " Don't believe a word he says, that sheep's a bloody liar.."
  15. Just outta' interest ....... what constitutes an 'anti gunner' in the States? If someone was for a homeowner having a hand gun for self protection, but against military style fully auto machine guns in private ownership would that make them an 'anti gunner' ?
  16. So.....do beans go in chili or not
  17. Does anyone thinks there's ANY chance BtK lived to 1950?
  18. $23.00 for 5oz here....what's the damage over there?
  19. Banished Word List for 2022 takes aim at some Aussie favourites A US university has released its banished words list for the New Year in an attempt to “protect” language https://www.news.com.au/lifestyle/banished-word-list-for-2022-takes-aim-at-some-aussie-favourites/news-story/4cf742db3c8eb9b51f68609fc0d5dd8a
