Who says there isn't? What do you think we put in those "meat" pies?
Elyscape, WTF are you doing, liking @Raife's picture? You weren't even born when that show was on the air.
We've got one here in Portland, too. Intensely delicious. Thank god the beer is all local so no Foster's.
Holy shit, it's been 15+ years since I even thought of that. Bless you and damn you for making me feel old.
Yeah, that's a big part of why I can't like that post on television.
I refer the poster to the OP!
What's wrong with Australia now is flooding, yet again.
Yet another year of record flooding in QLD. :/ Bundaberg has been hit pretty hard and they've evacuated many of the patients at the hospital to Brisbane.
Josho Lives there. Stay out of the flood waters mate.
Also in an ironic twist, Brisbane is flooding again and this time they are running out of drinking water because of problems with the water treatment facility.
A couple of weeks ago we were the scorched earth, now it's this:
And pretty soon Australia will look like this:
But living here means taking it in your stride.
Check out what I found on the floor under my bedroom window this morning:
What is that? ENHANCE!
It must have crawled into my room and then immediately had a heart attack, so that was a lucky escape. Anyway, that's why I put beds at the other end of the bedroom from any windows.
please spoiler tag that agh
It's dead, Jim.
...so, no window screens in Australia, then?
If you're that afraid of spiders it would probably be best to avoid any thread with the word Australia in it. Even if people don't post them the spiders will still find a way. It's their home base after all.
Ruin my view? For a little safety?
They need the metal for giant robots.
NOWHERE IS SAFE
If you mean Nowhere, Norfolk, then that's perfect as I can put my dual citizenship to use and be rid of the hairy fuckers once and for all.
Dood, you are in a thread about Australia. You are kinda asking for it! Start a thread about NZ and read it. Other than balrogs, everything is nice here.
I dunno about that, I mean look at this MONSTER I found in the house tonight!
This is actually enough to make one of my kids freak the hell out. And we're thinking of visiting the Gold Coast soon. Sigh.
A spider carries its young through water to a Jandowae farm shed in Queensland’s Western Downs.
Fucking thanks, Eric. I was just about to go to bed. Except, AAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHH
You get no likes. NO LIKES
Die in a fire (and bring the spiders with you).
Hell no, I'm liking that pic! And the other one. Welcome to 'Straya, mate! :-)
Confession: I'm scared of spiders, and I've lived in Australia all my life. However, I'm not scared of Daddy long-legs spiders, or tiny garden spiders. So yeah, it's not exactly what you'd call a crippling fear, but then again I have a general aversion towards a lot of rather common creepy-crawly things like cockroaches and leeches. My partner makes fun of me for it on a regular basis, and he's originally from Finland (where I'm told there are very few bugs). I forget where I was going with this... Uh. Irrational fears are irrational. The end.
Probably one of the things I hate the most in this world.
Yeah, I have an phobia of spiders that comes close to (but probably doesn't beat) Elyscape's.
I'm quite fond of spiders, except daddy long-legs. It might be they way they move or their skinny legs, they just really creep me out.
Harvestmen are not actually spiders, they're Opiliones rather than Araneae. Your appreciation of spiders has not been contaminated.
I'm strangely relieved now that I know that. Woo spiders!
Finding spiders in your hair and having a spider crawl on your chest can go a long way of either increasing or decreasing your fear.
From my perspective, spiders that aren't touching you seem a whole lot less scary now.
They're probably just laying their eggs on you. They'll hatch into adorable spiderlings, so it's a small price to pay.
I think the spiders in my hair were recent hatchlings. I was hanging out under some trees on a windy day. I think the were blown into my hair. Of course I didn't realize this until I had gone inside and found a spider dangling on a web in an attempt to get off this crazy mammal ride.
I was surprisingly very calm about this. You never know how you're going to react to a situation until it happens.
There is nothing, nothing at all irrational about a fear of spiders. It is a healthy belief that every single person should have.
So you think everyone should have the same belief that you do. In other words, a hive mind. Interesting.
Raife it was a joke, no need to post what you did.
It was a joke, loosen up. Unless you are defensive about hive minds because you are secretly an insect, in which case, get him spiders!
