    ^Go work in India for a while and see what good things you can find to say about them. Put Pakistan and Bangladesh on your itennary while in the region, you'll soon be singing their praises too.

    Having spent three years in India, two in Bangladesh, and two in Sri Lanka, I have to agree^.

    Cane toads hitch ride on the back of a python

    Forget Lime scooters - the new rage in Australia is hitching a ride on the back of a snake.
    An Aussie living in Kununurra, in the far north of Western Australia, snapped what's being described as the most Australian picture ever shot - about a dozen cane toads surfing on the back of a python.
    "68mm just fell in the last hour at Kununurra," Andrew Mock wrote on Twitter.
    "Flushed all the cane toads out of my brother's dam. Some of them took the easy way out - hitching a ride on the back of a 3.5m python."

    It appears that Oz has been struck by a trans gender cyclone. Named as "Penny", but distinctly male.



    Some amusing posts:

    "Penny divorced Gulf after 1 day then went out with Cape for the night and is now married to Coral. I’ll just leave it there I think and leave the whole graphic up to your imagination."

    "Kerry Allen-Traeger Does anyone else want to see the weather girl explain this one on the nightly weather report?!"

    "That's going to blow all over the top end"

    Can't get much more Aussie than using a boomerang to try to rob a servo!

    https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/art...ang-fails.html

    A man has failed miserably in his attempt to stick up a service station with the Aussie icon, by waving it at an attendant.


    On Sunday afternoon, a Brisbane man entered the Shell service station at Tarragindi, south of Brisbane and threatened a staff member.

    'He was asking people for money at the service station and had a boomerang in his hand', said a Queensland police spokesperson.


    'It wasn't until he approached the attendant that the man raised his voice and started to become more threatening.'


    'He left the service station and police were phoned,' he said.


    Police recognised the 31 year old from Moorooka, the next suburb over, and located him a short time later.


    He was arrested and given a notice of public nuisance.


    'He was arrested but not charged,' police said. 'He didn't steal anything.'


    The 31 year old did escaped a more serious punishment because no one was hurt during the incident.

    Speaking of boomerangs...my father was the inaugural secretary of a committee in Darlington Point raising money to build a swimming pool in the town in the late 60's. They held a world boomerang throwing championship as a fund raising event. Guest of Honour was Gough Whitlam who went on to become Prime Minister several years later. I still recall the awe of watching one gent who threw a boomerang that seemingly to this ten year old to barely manage to stay inside the sports oval and only needing to take a handful of steps to catch it on return.

    You have the same affliction as me when typing, getting the wrong letter as the double. Is it something to do with thinking ahead too fast for your fingers?

    Ahh baldrick, 'a stick'...another memory. We were so poor as kids all I had to play with was a stick. But it broke, and the dog ran away with the replacement.

    Looks a little overdone. Never thought I'd see a heatwave in Australia that left me questioning whether I'd experienced hotter weeks in Dubai or Phoenix.

    The world's hottest places in the 24 hours to 11am (AEDT) on January 16:

    1. Tarcoola (Australia) 49.1C
    2. Port Augusta Aws (Australia) 49C
    3. Woomera Aerodrome (Australia) 48C
    4. Olympic Dam Aerodrome (Australia) 47.9C
    5. Hay Airport Aws (Australia) 47.8C
    6. Oodnadatta Airport (Australia) 47.7C
    7. Marree Aero (Australia) 47.6C
