Arny who?
A: I'll be back!
Steve's wife? She was probably beside herself, but Steve said it would it ok, and they would have a lot more money in the long run. The Aussie way.
A: Again you don't know Americans as well as you think you do, capitalism is their baby.
Paul Hogan. Laughable. I haven't seen his movies. You guys are loaded with talent.
A: If you haven't seen his movies one of you Yanks must have gone twice.....he's rich now thanks to you guys.
You have lost your edge. Time for another vacation? This time go out and play with the wild animals.
A: Didn't know the human body had edges, you learn something new everyday, hang on a minute I am not thinking of accepting information from a yank...nope, don't think I will.
You still haven't answered my question. ARE YOU MARRIED? A simple yes or no will suffice. Don't worry, the law won't be banging on your door if you answer. Thank You!
A: There is a reason I haven't answered the question....it isn't relevant to the conversation.

I have no need to answer the question unless it applies to the conversation, and just asking me something personal goes beyond the conversation especially since it came out of the blue.....This is you.....Blah, blah, blah guns, death, actors, American males are suposedly tough and then........ oh and by the way are you married....WTF.
Blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, etc. Are You Married? Why Are You Afraid To Answer The Question? You've been married more than once.

I see your 'Diggers' shot two innocent boys. How do your "diggers' compare to the Navy Seals? First, they should change their name ASAP. Digger the Dog. Remember him?

Stop hiding and answer the question about being married. Are you a lesbian? That could be it! That's no reason to be embarrassed. Do you have a special someone (girl)? Aww. Cute. You two get along?

Isn't that against the law?

Why do you feel the need to do pot?

Saw an interesting show about marijuana the other night. There is a place in California called the golden triangle (?) were everyone and their mother grows it. The growers actually drive it down to southern Calif and risk being pulled over with it and/or selling it to a cop. Is it worth it? No.

As a kid I heard many overseas radio broadcasts most of which I vividly remember straining to understand over shrill jamming broadcasts by some foreign power or other with a vested interest in drowning out broadcasts to suppress spread on information it disapproved of.
Does else anyone get the impression that our freedom of speech in this thread is under the printed equivalent of similar shrill jamming attack by Spammers with a suppressive agenda?

Ahomaniac is probably sleeping off another crazy night of drunkeness and debauchery.

Sleep tight Ahomaniac. Don't let the bed bugs bite! I hope they get you good.

I bet she dreaming of living in America. Poor Ahomaniac, it will never happen. You are stuck in Perth.

Good night.

Viewed in context of observations exchanged between Teaman & me & Ahomana ... & massive Spamming imposed in the past 12 hours or so, no.

Nothing stopping you from reading back for yourself & joining the dots. Or does shallowness remain your comfort-zone?
