DIY Wotz on Guide for the weekend of 26-Jan-08

By Jazz - 25 January 2008 33

Yay! I love this time of year. Lots of long weekends and hot weather.

Now all i need to do is fill my gas bottle and fire up the barbie for that classic of all australian traditions – the Australia day BBQ with mates.

Dont forget its a public holiday on monday. Anything else on? Let us know if the comments.

[Ed. Gungahlin Al sent this in on all the australia day activities which start tonight]

The Oz Day website lists most of the stuff happening. The concert tonight between the PHs, bush picnic at Cotter, Indigenous stuff at the Museum, Glebe Park, Commonwealth Park, FA18s, ABC Kids concert, fireworks (going from last year, way better than NYE) for the kids 😉

What’s Your opinion?

Went to the concert last night, had a great time.

The Basics were outstanding.

I have always liked the analogy of how to tell if someone is a witch, from Monty Pythons Holy Grail.

Sir Bedevere: There are ways of telling whether she is a witch.
Peasant 1: Are there? Oh well, tell us.
Sir Bedevere: Tell me. What do you do with witches?
Peasant 1: Burn them.
Sir Bedevere: And what do you burn, apart from witches?
Peasant 1: More witches.
Peasant 2: Wood.
Sir Bedevere: Good. Now, why do witches burn?
Peasant 3: …because they’re made of… wood?
Sir Bedevere: Good. So how do you tell whether she is made of wood?
Peasant 1: Build a bridge out of her.
Sir Bedevere: But can you not also build bridges out of stone?
Peasant 1: Oh yeah.
Sir Bedevere: Does wood sink in water?
Peasant 1: No, no, it floats!… It floats! Throw her into the pond!
Sir Bedevere: No, no. What else floats in water?
Peasant 1: Bread.
Peasant 2: Apples.
Peasant 3: Very small rocks.
Peasant 1: Cider.
Peasant 2: Gravy.
Peasant 3: Cherries.
Peasant 1: Mud.
Peasant 2: Churches.
Peasant 3: Lead! Lead!
King Arthur: A Duck.
Sir Bedevere: …Exactly. So, logically…
Peasant 1: If she weighed the same as a duck… she’s made of wood.
Sir Bedevere: And therefore…
Peasant 2: …A witch!

In fact, everything that has a seed is a fruit
Like I said earlier – I still got my analogy across – Im not about to split hairs with stranger on the internet…

Hairy nosed wombat I stand corrected… I always thought that weird thing at one end of the fleshy part of the banana was a seed… Whatever it is its yucky.

Capsicum, chillis, Squash and zucchini – fruit or vegetable ?

sorry danman, bananas do have seeds, but according to Dr Karl, the species we eat do not fully form them. The little black dots in Bananas are the under developed seeds.

Tomatoes are a fruit as well. Thanks Danman, didn’t know about the pods. Agree point well put forward. I heard some where something about berries not being fruit and something completely different due to having seeds on the outside.
Lee Kernaghan hey?

Don’t forget the Aust MTB Nationals at Stomlo Forest Park.

Pumpkins and cucumbers are both fruits (as in, the fruit part of the plant). In fact, everything that has a seed is a fruit. Choose another analogy.

Danman 7:38 pm 25 Jan 08

Bananas don’t have seeds…

Indeed you are correct – they do not have “seeds” however the banana palm has seed pods on its branches. Never the less I got my point across. Happy Australia Day.

Oh and most uni students are useless twats…..can we all generalise? (Especially as I was a smoker and am now not. Does that make me an ex-crim? Wonder what Chopper would think.)

go and play with your wooden ghetto train set fool.

Legend.

If you happen to be mates with an engineering type, get them to turn up a fitting so that you can fill your own gas bottle from the LPG pumps at the servo (for 60c/litre).

Bananas don’t have seeds…

Danman 3:50 pm 25 Jan 08

I am sure that there is a joint in Mitchell that does this, not BOC but some other trade shop like F.A.W. or something – have to ask the tradie stepdad next time I see him. Thats where they fill their bottles up
