Agreed, the Mboto tree is renowned for its lethal speed, Thumper.

But the eucalyptus antiskimoronus is to be feared for its bloodthirsty irrational and unpredictable behaviour.

It’s scary, that so many people ski and board so out of control, that they hit stuff this fast. They also hit other people, especially little people, way too often.

Skiing and boarding have become bogan sports.

Well, thats because he was skiing. If he were a snowboarder – he may still be alive! Hey Nik ?

roll on usual joke about loggers killing entire forests, and now the trees are fighting back

trouble is, thumper, that all this climate science may have it arse about and it is actually the beginning of a new ice-age (which was all the hyped theory in the 70s and 80s), and is still plausible, according to eminent scientist freeman dyson…


Maybe the uber kewl skiiers will start wearing helmets now… then again they’d probably rather die than mess up their lightly frosted perm.
