    Trip to Melbourne
    Yesterday, Alasdair and I had a one day trip to Melbourne (Perks of working for an Airline). We had breakfast at Bagatelles, walk down Brunswick St and Smith St, stop for a drink at Coco's on Smith St, tram back to Bourke St, more drinks at Koko Black, a pleasant stop at the Gin Palace for a Martini and dinner at the dumpling house. Absolutely fantastic. :)

    i used to believe
    I really like some of the cute stories from I used to believe. Here's some from today's mailout:

    "I used to believe that if someone offered to give you their phone number, you would have to actually permanently swap your home phone numbers. I liked my phone number, so I would always turn people down when they offered me theirs. - anonymous"

    "i used to imagine a heart attack occurring when somebody's heart somehow pops out of their chest and starts attacking the victim. i honestly believed this until 8th grade, when we learned about functions of the heart. - Lub-dub"

    "When I was about six I had a pen pal in Colorado. I thought that because they didn't live in a shoreline state they had never seen water before so I would go down the street to the beach and put some water in bags and mail the water to them, attempting to explain what it was. - Danielle"

    His mother was shot dead for her political beliefs. So was his father. He was looked after by foster parents in London until he turned 18. Then he was locked up so that he can be 'dumped' abroad. Soon we'll be doing this to 16-year-olds..." full story

    High School Speech - What You'll Wish You'd Known, Paul Graham
    "Most people like to be good at what they do. In the so-called real world this need is a powerful force. But high school students rarely benefit from it, because they're given a fake thing to do. When I was in high school, I let myself believe that my job was to be a high school student. And so I let my need to be good at what I did be satisfied by merely doing well in school."

    "Your teachers are always telling you to behave like adults. I wonder if they'd like it if you did. You may be loud and disorganized, but you're very docile compared to adults. If you actually started acting like adults, it would be just as if a bunch of adults had been transposed into your bodies. Imagine the reaction of an FBI agent or taxi driver or reporter to being told they had to ask permission to go the bathroom, and only one person could go at a time. To say nothing of the things you're taught. If a bunch of actual adults suddenly found themselves trapped in high school, the first thing they'd do is form a union and renegotiate all the rules with the administration."

    Rainbow Episode
    Have a look at this Rainbow Episode. It's freaky. This was actually on TV. :)

    Geoffrey (to camera) " Hello everyone, today we are talking about playing"
    Bungle: "Playing with each other, Geoffrey?"
    Geoffrey: "Yes Bungle, do you have a special friend that you like to play with?"
    George: "Yesterday we played with our balls.
    Are we going to play with our friend's balls today?"
    Bungle: "Yes, and we can play with our twangers as well."
    Geoffrey (to camera): Have you seen Bungles twanger?
    Zippy: "Oh I have, I showed him how to pluck with it."
    Bungle: "It's my plucking instrument."

    Today's Funny
    A little rabbit is happily running through the forest when he stumbles upon a giraffe rolling a joint.

    The rabbit looks at her and says, "Giraffe, my friend, why do you do this? Come with me and run through the forest. You'll see you'll feel much better."

    The giraffe looks at him, looks at the joint, tosses it and goes off running with the rabbit.

    Then, they came across an elephant doing cocaine.

    So, the rabbit again says, "Elephant, my friend, why do you so this? Think about your health. come running with us through the pretty forest. You'll see, you'll feel so good!"

    The elephant looks at them, looks at his razor, mirror and all, and then tosses them and starts running with the rabbit and giraffe.

    The three animals then come across a lion about to shoot up.

    So, the rabbit again says, "Lion, my friend, why do you do this? Think about your health! come running with us through the sunny forest. You'll see, you will feel so good!"

    The lion looks at him, puts down the needle, and starts to beat the hell out of the rabbit.

    As the giraffe and elephant watch in horror, they look at him and ask, "Lion, why did you do this? He was merely trying to help us all!"

    The lion answers, "That little bastard makes me run around the forest like an idiot for hours everytime he's on ecstacy!"
