Nice picture, James. Is the background somewhere specific that I don't recognise?

Here at work we've just been laughing over the news that the Internet is 20 years old and "in 1 year it can drink". I keep bumping into it down at the Townie on Friday nights, and I've heard it keeps waking up at Penrith station in the wee hours and saying "where the hell are my underpants?"

Nawt really a specific location, I was just making up a river town as I went along.

And yes, with those absurd US drinking ages, I'm sure the Internet is much happier down here!

Hmm, at first I thought the concept of the internet losing its underwear was alarming, but really, I suppose it's not particularly unusual at all for the 'net...

What would the anthropormorphic personification of the 'net look like anyway?

What's the drinking age down there? 18? Or... is there an age?

Bingo! I have never been asked for proof of age in Australia (I've had a full beard since high school), but many of my women friends still are. It's rather flattering for a 36 year old woman to be carded, which makes me suspect that's how bouncers flirt.

So when you visit us, take your passport with you to the pub, and you'll be right.

Sweet! I can be barely legal AND shitfaced at the same time!!

Hey, anytime you guys wanna buy me a plane ticket (preferably round trip), I'd be glad to come hang out. Heh.

Only if you are not straight, and in Queensland or New South Wales. If you're straight, you would be completely legal and shitfaced at the same time.

Not that I'm suggesting you marry James, or anything. ;-)

What, I... ohhh. I see. Silly me. Of course the age of consent would be different too, I suppose. But they have different ages, depending on your preference? That's odd.

Hey! You all have accents, don't you!! DON'T YOU!!!!!

That distinguished gentleman looks a lot like Samuel Clemens to me, James.

internet?

Postby Maou- on Sun Jan 12, 2003 7:30 pm

I see the internet as looking somewhere around the US talk show host Conan O'Brian, or else the Kaisho....vaguely doofy, but funny and potentially dangerous. I wonder where that Kaisho went...

Hi I'm back

Postby FAULT on Mon Jan 27, 2003 8:21 pm

I have my own accent.

When I was in France everyone thought I was English. Doh.

When I was in Japan some people thought I was a boy. That was kinda odd. But fun too.

When I'm in Australia.. I like to dress up of a Sunday and go to my anime club looking particularly freaky. I'm doing it again next month :D YEAH!
