    is the suv supposed to be holding the house, or the house supposed to hold the suv?

    either way, I wouldn't want to be anywhere near it.

    As far as will that work? That place looks like it would fall down if someone's car back-fired in its general direction, so I guess every little bit helps?

    PS: Have a look here.
    Uwe: yes we do call them cyclones - there seems to be some conjecture by Mr Google as to the meaning of the 2 x words (the other being "hurricane" - and the third being "typhoon"). Some say the terms are synonymous, some say that the latitude of the event is the distinguishing variable - there is even the suggestion that a threshold wind speed of 74 mph is the deliminator (what in God's name is "mph' anyway?). All semantics I guess for anyone experiencing any form of this weather phenomenon.

    And yes, the South East region of Australia is where Melbourne's unique Cyclone-force-field has been operating for some time. It's very effective as the BOM (not to be confused with "bomb")map shows. It's our little secret - don't tell anyone, or everyone will want one of these!!!

    Don't get over-confident. The force-field in Halifax, Nova Scotia seems to have failed.

    For perspective, Halifax is further from the equator (and hence the tropics) that the southernmost point in Tasmania.

    The engineering problems are likely insurmountable. It would be like proposing to land a rocket booster section on a barge floating in the middle of the ocean.

    ^^^ Uwe: Thanks for the cautionary comment

    Alas however, you have forgotten the signal most importance difference between South East Australia and Nova Scotia: the former is God's country and the latter is.........well... just like every other place on this fragile blue planet (no offense intended to Nova Scotia folk). Difference = the protection of an omnipotent deity (but only if Aussies keep believing- and we keep denying global warming!! )

    Jumping in on the bandwagon...

    We had some interesting weather here in NZ last night. The rain came and went, but wasn't overly heavy for long.

    The scary part was the lightning and thunder - it was direct overhead (we have sheet lightning, generally) there was no real delay between the lightning and thunder, but they both went on for a long time! It was SOOOOO loud, the light in our bedroom was rattling! I've never heard it rattle, even when the door slams. The lightning was lighting up our bedroom, and all the blinds were closed. It looked like someone turned the hallway light on. I could FEEL my body vibrating! I have NEVER felt lightning like that.

    forgive me if this was submitted here before- I like it


    I went to the bar last night and saw a fat chick dancing on a table.
    I said to her, "Nice legs."
    The girl giggled and said with a smile, "Do you really think so."
    I said "Definitely, most tables would have collapsed by now."

    the advantage of having whole-wheat cookies for breakfast is that when you run out-you can eat the box as well... tastes almost the same...
