RiotACT Sim Challenge Round 12 – Dr. Luciano Lombardo, Pangallo Independents for Molonglo

By johnboy 15 October 2008 16

“The perfect metaphor for Canberra” was how The Australian described the RiotACT Sim Challenge.

The 12th and final instalment of the challenge is taking place this Thursday night at All Bar Nun in O’Connor.

If you’ve been meaning to come along to one of these, this is your last chance.

Jesus had 12 disciples, 12 men have walked on the moon, and 12 candidates will have taken the RiotACT Sim Challenge when the Pangallo Independents’ Dr Luciano Lombardo completes it tomorrow night.

All welcome to help and heckle!

From another thread: “Just making a note to bring my darning with me to ABN. And I double dog dare the knitters of Canberra to come along to the final SIMS challenge from 7pm tonight.”

“On Lamuella, the days were just a little over 25 hours long, which basically meant an extra hour in bed every single day. The planet orbited its single sun every three hundred days, which was a good number because it meant the year didn’t drag by. The moon orbited Lamuella just over nine times a year, which meant that a month was a little over thirty days, which was absolutely perfect because it gave you a little more time to get things done in. It was not merely reassuringly like Earth, it was actually rather an improvement.”

Look, I’m sure he doesn’t need a sense of humour transplant.

Ford: It’s unpleasantly like being drunk.
Arthur:What’s so unpleasant about being drunk?
Ford: ask a glass of water.

Let’s see if Jakez getz this one 😉

Granny quotes Douglas Adams. Now I’m in love…

Back at ya:
Arthur Dent: Do you have any advice for a traveller?
Oracle: Yes. Get a beach house.
Arthur: Any other advice, other than to do with real estate?
Oracle: A beach house isn’t just real estate. It’s a state of mind. A beach house doesn’t even have to be on the beach. Though the best ones are. We all like to congregate at boundary conditions.
Arthur: Really?
Oracle: Where land meets water. Where earth meets air. Where body meets mind. Where space meets time. We like to be on one side, and look at the other.

I can’t believe we’re talking about airports!!

2 terminals spring to mind for me. Beijing’s new terminal and HCMC’s new one

Granny said :

“It’s no coincidence that in no known language does the phrase “As pretty as an airport” appear”

Isn’t that statement self defeating? Do I need a sense of humour transplant?

“It’s no coincidence that in no known language does the phrase “As pretty as an airport” appear”

Thumper 12:14 pm 15 Oct 08

And twelve comes right before thirteen.

Coincidence? I think not…

More like Jesus crossed with a Saturn V rocket!

Actually I’m sure it’s all our dear readers who deserve comparison to Jesus. But we all know who’s going to end up getting crucified around here.

Skidbladnir 11:50 am 15 Oct 08

So, last week it was just a smallish announcement, and this week you’re comparing yourself to Jesus.

Having The Australian talk about your business sure inflated the ego, Jb.

Ari 11:45 am 15 Oct 08

Jesus had 12 disciples

So which candidate is Judas?
