Bikini-Clad Babe On Australia’s Uluru Angers Aborigines

“A woman who performed a striptease on top of Australia’s giant red rock Uluru on Sunday prompted a renewed call for people to be banned from climbing the important indigenous site, a report said.

Alizee Sery, 25, stripped down to a white bikini after climbing the central Australian monolith, formerly known as Ayers Rock, in what she described as a tribute to Aboriginal culture.

‘I am aware that Uluru is sacred in their culture. My project is a tribute to the greatness of the Rock,’ she told the Sunday Territorian.

‘What we need to remember is that traditionally, the Aboriginal people were living naked. So stripping down was a return to what it was like.’

If Alizee was old, ugly, and fat, stripping down to a bikini might be interpreted as an insult to Aboriginal culture, but she’s sizzling hot.

I wish Alizee would strip down to a thong in Times Square as a tribute to American culture.

A beautiful bikini-clad woman on top of a majestic rock is a sight that should be revered by everyone, including Aborigines

Dudes Shoot Each Other In Buttocks To See If It Hurts

“Two Australian men needed surgery after shooting each other in the buttocks during a drinking session to see if it would hurt, police said on Wednesday.
 
The men, both aged 34, used an air rifle to fire at each other on Sunday. By Tuesday, both were in hospital to have pellets removed from their buttocks and legs.
 
‘The men were sharing a few beers on Sunday evening when they thought it would be interesting to see if they shot one another with an air rifle, if it would penetrate their skin or it would hurt,’ a police spokesman said.”

If these idiots were sober it would never enter their minds to shoot each other with air rifles to see it the pellets would penetrate their skin. But alcohol lowers inhibitions and IQ, and folks do stupid and dangerous things when they are under the influence.
 
The jackasses didn’t feel too much pain when they shot each other, but when they sobered up they cried like schoolgirls and went to the hospital.
 
If you think you have a brilliant idea, take stock of yourself, if there are a dozen empty beer cans around you, chances are it’s not a good idea.

Aussie Backpacker Falls Asleep In Crime-Ridden Streets of Johannesburg

“An Australian backpacker in South Africa for the soccer World Cup passed out drunk in the driveway of a Johannesburg politician under the impression he was in Cape Town.

 
Woken after a bitterly cold night on the streets of South Africa’s commercial capital, 26-year-old Jerry Goding was given a
cup of coffee, a hot shower and a lecture about looking after himself in one of the world’s most dangerous cities.”
 
JOHANNESBURG (Reuters)
 
Anybody curious to know what hell is like should visit South Africa, the most violent and godforsaken place in the world. South Africa makes so-called failed nations look like paradise.
 
Bringing the World Cup to South Africa is like entrusting drug-addled Amy Winehouse with the care of your children.
 
The Aussie backpacker is extremely fortunate he didn’t wake up buck-naked with a bloody head. I hope the backpacker is packing a sawed-off shotgun for his protection, South Africa ain’t for wimps.

Camels Terrorize Australians

“Docker River, an Australian Outback town, is under siege from 6,000 wild camels which have laid waste to the area in search of water.
 
“Residents in the Northern Territory settlement have been left cowering in their homes after the animals trampled fences, smashed through water mains and invaded the airstrip.
 
The camels, driven to extreme lengths by prolonged drought, have even tried to force their way into people’s homes to drink water from air conditioning units and taps.”

I wouldn’t live down under for a million dollars, Australia is a land terrorized by dingos who snatch babies in the middle of the night, and by camels who hold towns hostage.
 
Who you gonna call ilf rampaging camels are trying to break into your home? The mad beasts would snort at Crocodile Dundee’s knife, and they would spit at the coppers.
 
I guess you call in the calvary, the government is dispatching men in helicopters to gun down the animals.
 
Do you agree with this indiscriminate killing of the thirsty camels? Post your comments!

BTW, the club house is in another time zone …

If you want to play a few holes of golf at Australia’s proposed Nullarbor Links, be prepared to spend a week or two along the way.

The brainchild of “Bob Bongiorno, a former manager of the Balladonia Road House on the Nullarbor Plain,” the course is planned to encourage Outback tourists, who normally pass straight through, to gain “awareness of [the area’s] magnificent geographical features and rich history.”

Nullarbor Links, nearly 850 miles long, “will be ready for the first tee-off in October and the operators have already received contacts from excited golfers in Britain, Japan and China.”

One major departure from normal golf courses is that each hole will have a pub or bar, undoubtedly well stocked with area beers – Coopers, Southwark, or Swan Brewing selections. “We’ll have 18 nineteenth holes,” Mr. Bongiorno says with pride. “That’s a big bonus.”

Beth’s Trivia

May 20, 2009 by  
Filed under Tech/Sci

Have you been sitting at your computer, anxiously awaiting the answers to yesterday’s questions?  Well, your long wait is over!  Before you read the answers, however, please get up and stretch … there, now you probably feel somewhat refreshed.

Yesterday’s questions were:  Which Indy 500 driver hopes his wife won’t give birth until after this year’s race?  and What’s unusual about the winners of the 2009 boys AA Western Pennsylvania Interscholastic Athletic League tennis doubles championship?

The answers are, in order:  Alex Lloyd – he and his wife, Samantha, were told their second child is due May 24;  and this year’s winners of the boys AA Western PA IAL tennis doubles championship are girls – sisters Karli and Tanya Timko, students at Chartiers-Houston High School.

Today’s trivia questions are:  1.  Who won the recent contest for “The Best Job in the World” to be caretaker of Hamilton Island, Australia, for six months? and 2.  What did that person do before becoming the caretaker?

I wish I had tried out for the job myself.  It beats watching our sheep and raising puppies.
