Cave clan! excellent idea… any riotactors involved with them, preferably who know of any urban spelunking going on in the next couple of weeks?

Today however – I am in melbourne – I plan on going underground and taking photos – and in the process – lowering the ambient temperaure quite considerably

Cave Clan?

And by certain posters, I mean every last one of you whining malcontents.

Surely that’s a pool room quote

Don’t worry RG, with the temperature outside the same as that within, we won’t float into the sky like those damn balloons…

It would be a bad idea for certain posters to withhold that much hot air for that long.

Lay off posting to RA for the day, that’ll lower your temperatures a degree or two!

Aircon at work, in car, at home, the best way to go! I hate the heat, and I wont suffer for anyone, anything!

Get Al Gore to visit.

All his trips seem to attract cold snaps

they have just updated it to be 38 for both Thursday and Friday… get ready everyone! I recommend the fridge and freezer section of your local coles or woolies…. pretend like you are viewing the yoghurt!

I was warned about that….

Damn, 50 litres is a lot of ginger beer…

Maelinar has spoken to Mrs Thumper and found out that Mr Thumper particularly likes Ginger Beer to the extent that you’ll probably want to move into the spare bedroom over summer…

For my next trick (the first was turning water into beer), 50 Litres of Ginger Beer…

Yulara in mid summer.

Friggin unbelievable….

Mael’s brew sounds good…

Just use a fan – you don’t need an air conditioner when you already have dry air. You don’t get sweaty as long as the air moves a bit.
Now in SE Qld when you have that temp for 5 days running including nothing below 28 at night, and near 100% humidity at the same time – now that fun – NOT!

Coopers Pale Ale, using the Pale Ale booster pack

I have a penchant for Pale Ales, although I’m not paticularly keen on Coopers Green Label commercial as it generally gives me a humdinger of a hangover.

Perhaps you could sit in your fridge and drink it Maelinar. What sort of drop is it anyway? A refreshing pilnser or summer ale?

Yuk, yuk and yuk… not liking this forecast one bit!
Maybe I could take leave and float in the pool for the rest of the week?

Pair of shorts, spray bottle filled with cold water set on mist and a fan set on high. Spray yourself occasionly. kiwi airconditioning…
