  1. Is Quantas a Chinese immitation of Qantas?
  2. This is true!! Took me a while to get the joke too, so no wonder His Holiness stared blankly.......... http://www.smh.com.au/lifestyle/people/cringe-time-as-dalai-lama-left-puzzled-by-gag-with-everything-20110611-1fy55.html?from=smh_sb Here's the vid:-
  3. A young Chinese couple gets married. She's a virgin. Truth be told, he is a virgin too, but she doesn't know that. On their wedding night, she cowers naked under the sheets as her husband undresses in the darkness. He climbs into bed next to her and tries to be reassuring. 'My darring,' he whispers, 'I know dis you firss time and you berry flighten. I promise you, I give you anyting you want, I do anyting - juss anyting you want. You juss ask. Whatchu want?' he says, trying to sound experienced and worldly, which he hopes will impress her. A thoughtful silence foll
  4. Gary - and seemingly the only Club investing in English youth.
  5. One word on football transfer fees & 'weekly' (or is that daily) wages for football players: OBSCENE! AdrianR said: (Torres was on about ?125k per week apparently). at Liverpool. I calculate that to be around $260/70 per week in antipodean coin, which is more than I earn in about 3.5 years working 5 days per week. Sickening!
  6. After a long, self imposed exile ( ) and being overjoyed at the return of Kenny Dalglish to manage Liverpool, let me just say two things after this mornings game (antipodean time) game Liverpool -v- Chelsea: 1. Re Torres: Money can buy talent, but not heart. 2. If Liverpool retain Dalglish after seasons end, they WILL challenge for silverwear in 2011/12 season. Last comment: Arguably, the team of the week has to be Newcastle coming back form 4-0 down. Great stuff! Greetings to all at Warrington
  7. I sat here thinking, "What the?", then on a 3rd read it dawned on me , and I haven't read the Sports forum page for ages.
  8. A magician worked on a cruise ship. The audience was different each week so the magician did the same tricks over and over again. There was only one problem: The captain's parrot saw the shows each week and began to understand how the magician did every trick. Once he understood, he started shouting in the middle of the show, "Look, It's not the same hat!" or, "Look, he's hiding the flowers under the table!" or "Hey, why are all the cards the ace of spades?" The magician was furious but couldn't do anything, it was, after all, the Captain's' parrot. Then one stormy night o
  9. Thanks Gary - and thanks for the help in reminding me of my login. It's an age thing! Bit of a worry really. Which World Cup? Well, I did mean Football, but I take your point, so I'll stick Rugby Union in there too. Cricket? well .................. suppose so, but DEFINATELY NOT Rugby League. OK?
  10. So, did we all enjoy the 5 tackle-kick (so called) 'World Cup' ? Sore losers here in the antipodes - "we wuz robbed by the Pommy ref" Sad eh! Anyway, great to see the New Zealanders win. In fairness, I hope they drop the "World Cup' tag in future, and have a round-robin between the nations that actually play the game at a reasonable level - you might then get a Tri-Nations tournament, or possibly one, and at a stretch, two more teams. Having said that, at least most of the competing teams this year had some knowledge of the oval ball game (be it League or Union), not like i
  11. Three men died on Christmas Eve and were met by Saint Peter at the pearly gates. "In honor of this holy season" Saint Peter said, "You must each possess something that symbolizes Christmas to get into heaven." The first man fumbled through his pockets and pulled out a lighter. He flicked it on. "It represents a candle", he said. "You may pass through the pearly gates" Saint Peter said. The second man reached into his pocket and pulled out a set of keys. He shook them and said, "They're bells." Saint Peter said "You may pass through the pearly gates". The third m
  12. Bullseye Eagle! An issue that's been debated here in the past. For English football to escape from the rut it's been in for far too long now, the FA MUST introduce a strict quota of non-English (or perhaps, non-British?) players in the EPL. Maybe (?) the standard of the EPL would suffer in the short term, but given a season or two I have every confidence the competition would flourish and retain it's world ranking. There must be a huge understorey of player talent in the country that is unable to gain the necessary exposure & experience in the EPL because of the number of imported
  13. How very sweet it was. The head of the ARU, John O'Neill, had been encouraging the "Hate England" campaign in the week before the match. Well he's ended up with not just egg on his face, but a ruddy great sloppy omelette. "Swing low, sweet chariot........." A steadily improving side can beat France, but can we beat Argentina or South Africa? Time will tell, but we did knock the Wallabies out, so this expat is a very happy chappy
  14. I'll miss the pouting. The dummy spits. The excuses. Not!
  15. Jeeze G'man, no wonder you're behind in your studies. Short, concise & to the point pls. BTW & FYI, I gave up a qtr way through.
  16. Could be a very interesting season - and I hope it is. One swallow does not a summer make, so I'm not counting my chickens just yet re Liverpool........or the other northern reds. I'm sure MU will bounce back, but like I said, it could be a very interesting season. PS I see Styles has apologised for his gaffe: "Yesterday, in mistakenly awarding a penalty, I accept that I may have affected the result of the match and for that I apologise." (although the words 'may have' should have been deleted from the above statement)
  17. Wrong side of the ditch Eagle, it's the Kiwi's that have a preference for Bahhhbraaa!
  18. It's called fence sitting over here Peter.
  19. It'll be fought out by Liverpool, Man U, Chelsea, Arsenal and Spurs....but I'd like to see a couple of bolters liven up the mix. Who'll win? ....ask me next May!
  20. UEFA president Michel Platini was keen to distance himself from outrageous accusations from one of his senior colleagues that Liverpool fans were the worst behaved in Europe. Asked whether Liverpool fans were to blame for trouble at some of the gates ahead of the clash with AC Milan, Platini said: "No, we cannot say that. We cannot point the finger. And, no, they are not the worst behaved in Europe. "The issue is not that they are English or Spanish, one club or another. It is simply about fans who travel without tickets. This is an old story. It is just that more English fans foll
  21. http://www.smh.com.au/news/sport/new-olympic-logo-causes-epileptic-fits/2007/06/06/1180809556597.html Ecky thump! Not only a dreadful logo - but potentially dangerous too! Couldn't the Olympic Committee have selected something better? :confused:
  22. Ranieri. A good manager and gentleman to boot. Hope he does well.
  23. OK - Forget about the argy bargy amongst fans of the 'top flight' teams - what 3 teams are destined for the drop to 1st Div at the end of next season? :confused:
  24. Goonerman, I always thought the 'big one' is Imhotep, not Alexander. http://www.touregypt.net/featurestories/imhotep.htm
