Where is everyone??? I need someone to talk to.

Who was that said...'get a life'? That's not very polite!!

Would someone like to discuss the essential ingredients required to form a legally binding contract? Or perhaps why assets over a certain dollar value should be reflected in the balance sheet and not taken up as an expense in the trading accounts?

No.....not interested in those fascinating subjects eh?

OK then, what about how my friends and associates can stuff up a perfectly functioning operating system by simply sending and receiving emails and the occasional surfing around the net? If anyone can help me out with that one I would be extremely appreciative. What's that you say....get some new friends?? [i:2zjai2vw]That's not really helping[/i:2zjai2vw]!!

Here's one....why do we[i:2zjai2vw] always[/i:2zjai2vw] say 'back to front' and 'upside down' when 'front to back' and 'downside up' mean exactly the same thing?? Who was it started that trend?

I know....I'll teach you some "strine" (Australian lingo):

Eggnitioner = Air conditioner
She'll be apples = Everything will be OK
Footy = Football
A coldie = A beer
Bloke = A man
Mate = A bloke you watch footie and drink beer with
Sheila = A girl/woman
A good sort = A good looking sheila.
Ankle biter = A small child
Hooroo = Goodbye
Blue = A fight/argument. e.g. he was having a blue with his missus.
Make a[i:2zjai2vw] blue[/i:2zjai2vw] = Make a mistake, an error.
Bingle = A motor vehicle accident.
He hasn't got a[i:2zjai2vw] brass razoo[/i:2zjai2vw] = He is broke, got no money.
Cactus = Dead/non-functioning. e.g. the old TV is cactus.
Not within cooee = A long way off.
Crook = Bad, not good.
Feeling crook = Ill/sick.
A dag = A goofball, a silly person.
Daks = Trousers
Fair dinkum = True, genuine
Bodgy = Iffy, of inferior quality.
A butchers hook = A look. e.g. 'Ave a butchers hook at the pins (legs) on that sheila.
Snakes hissed = Drunk
Doovalacky = A thingummyjig, a whatsit.
Fair suck of the sav = A fair go. Give us a break.
In the [i:2zjai2vw]nuddy[/i:2zjai2vw] = Naked, nude.
Porkie (Pork pie) = Lie
Sanger = Sandwich.
Stickybeak = A nosy person.
Trackie daks = Tracksuit pants
On the [i:2zjai2vw]turps[/i:2zjai2vw] = drinking alcohol
Gone walkabout = Not paying attention.
Whinge = Complain
A big girl's blouse = A man behaving like a cissy or a scaredy-cat.

That's enough of that. Hope it's not too MCP for all the good looking sheilas out there.

Anyway, that filled in an hour or so. The trouble and strife's brother will be arriving soon so I'd better go get changed into me trackie daks and then I can get on the turps with me mate and we can get snakes hissed together. Better not slurp down too many coldies though, don't wanna be crook in the morning. Hope the sheilas won't wanna start a blue about it. I doubt they will, they are a coupla fair dinkum sorts really.

Hooroo......Jim

I'm glad I'm not the only one feeling that things are a bit slow lately. Just wasn't feeling comfortable enough (new member) to be the first one to call an assembly.

I may take you up on your offer some time, though I didn't understand a single word what the second one's about.
[quote:3e74l6l2]Footy = Football[/quote:3e74l6l2]
Is that the real footbal?

[quote:3e74l6l2]Hope it's not too MCP for all the good looking sheilas out there.[/quote:3e74l6l2]
Any particular reason for Microsoft Certified Professional(s) being too much for the sheilas?

Thanks for the lesson . When's the next one?

I think you would find Jim a very worthy conversationalist.
Knowledgeable, funny, witty, well-spoken. Those aren't Jim, but he can talk!

Just kidding!

[quote:38a0w41m]Just wasn't feeling comfortable enough (new member) to be the first one to call an assembly.[/quote:38a0w41m]
You can call an assembly anytime you like FD; just grab a coldie, put on your slippers, pull up a chair and start chatting. As you can tell from my ramblings, nonsense is perfectly acceptable.

[quote:38a0w41m]Is that the real footbal?[/quote:38a0w41m]
We've opened that can of worms here before FD. Had some interesting exchanges with our American friends....I[i:38a0w41m] know[/i:38a0w41m] I won, they[i:38a0w41m] think[/i:38a0w41m] they won! They just don't seem to be able to comprehend that the term "football" is not applicable for any sport where the ball is actually controlled, for the vast majority of the time, by using the hands.

We actually have 4 "football' codes here:
Aussie Rules - which is unique to Australia and referred to colloquially as 'aerial ping pong'.
Rugby Union
Rugby league - which is very similar to rugby union and consists mainly of very large men bashing the cr*p out of one another. Sort of like a cross between boxing and wresting, only with a ball.
AND, of course, the only[i:38a0w41m] true[/i:38a0w41m] football, the glorious round ball game!! They call it 'soccer' here....the uneducated lot!!

[quote:38a0w41m]Thanks for the lesson . When's the next one?[/quote:38a0w41m]
No worries mate....as soon as I sober up!!

Which reminds me....I came home sober the other night and the dog bit me!!!

[quote:38a0w41m]Ah Ha! Now I have a cheat sheet to use during my conversations with Jim![/quote:38a0w41m]
Dave, me old china plate.....now if only we can get you past the "yard balls" thingee!!

[quote:38a0w41m]Knowledgeable, funny, witty, well-spoken. Those aren't Jim, but he can talk![/quote:38a0w41m]
I resemble that!! .....LOL
You[i:38a0w41m] really[/i:38a0w41m] do know me [i:38a0w41m]far[/i:38a0w41m] too well!!

[size=150:38a0w41m]Thanks one and all (Mindblower too) for helping assuage the ennui I have been experiencing lately......much appreciated.[/size:38a0w41m]

Cheers....Jim

I'm sober, awake, at work, with coffee and I've read that four times and I still don't get it.

On the plus side, I can speak Aussie now.

Someday I'll teach ya'all hick...

Is it the one where the palyers wear T-shirts and shorts and no protection gear? And the match looks like there're no rules other than "abuse your opponent as much as it takes for you to score and win"? If yes, I've watched that on TV. It looked like a ruthless ... sport and I remember wondering "will the guy at the bottom of that pile of struggling bodies come out still breathing?".

[quote:14354uet]They call it 'soccer' here....the uneducated lot!![/quote:14354uet]
That indicates that the USA influence is stronger. But I second the last part.

Maybe he/ she didn't recognize your scent with the coldie ingredient missing from the mix?

Yep, that's the one.....very tough game for very tough men.

Yes FD...that[i:2ltzlgcc] was[/i:2ltzlgcc] the general idea.

I was only kidding of course, can't actually remember the last I was seriously under the affluence of ilcohalic lacquer.....hic!

Cheers now.....Jim
