Shuz, please do not portray yourself as the victim of this saga. The true victim is the reputation of this website.

Very influential and important people visit this website. Imagine if someone at AAL had read your article and had to waste time calling the council, the developers, the state governemnt... for not being informed. Once such a person found out that this was a hoax and that this website made them waste their valuable time, do you think they would retain the confidence they had of the accuracy of information posted here?

Or, consider if Peter Vaughan had decided to initiate legal proceedings against this website for using his name and attributing a quote to him that he never made?

Sensational Adelaide is the vanguard of development information in South Australia. Never put this in jeopardy.

Oh, yes. I happened to come across quite an interesting specimen aboard the tram only just the other day. He was an shrewdly unobservant, materialistically consumed, lanky pretentious grasshopper, bearing wickedly frail glasses and sported a rather tragic arrangement of hair follicles atop. Was quite the find.

Opportunity is missed by most people because it is dressed in overalls and looks like work.

Having just looked in here, and with the number of apparently deleted threads, I'm fcuked if I know what's going on.

Glad you hit 2000, shuz. I only ever post here to keep your responses and posts up.

Farewell to riceknackers, I suppose.

2156 now. I'd be interested to know how many hours I've spent foruming this site in my life.

..and now for something competely different

I'm bursting to share the amazing thing that happened to us today. We went for a drive north of Seattle to see Mt Baker, a volcano in the Cascade Mountains (and the home of snowboarding, according to George). Stunning place it is.

Anyhoo, we were driving along and a BLACK BEAR crossed the road in front of our car! I still can't believe it, it was truly amazing. No picture sadly, we were caught by surprise!

I'm still breaking into a grin as I think of it :D

I was driving through Toorak Gdns last month at about 1am and a koala walked across the road.

There that beats your common as mud black bear. ;)
Exit on the right in the direction of travel.

Don't forget the drop bears! They'll jump on to your car and try to get through the glass.

Mono, I'm sure you'll dine out well on the koala story :P
