On a related note, i saw the Rolling Stones on TV the other week. HOLY SHIT Keith Richards and Mick Jagger have aged horribly in the past year

It was nearly worth sitting through Pirates of the Carribean 3 to see Keith Richards.

I didn't think Keith Richards could possibly age any more. I mean, fuck, if you carbon dated that guy, he'd be what, 50,000-60,000 years old?

Screw the Lovetown Tour. I've got the Rimutaka Incline to ride first.

Could be worse. You could be an aspiring New Zealand historian WHO LIVES IN AUSTRALIA.

Hey, maybe you could fly me back and forth between Melbourne and New Zealand. That'd be handy.

Carbon dating gets kind of unreliable after 30 or 40k.... which is one reason no one can agree on how long Aboriginals have been in Australia.

There are other dating methods though... Can't remember what they're called right now. Argon something or other? Or is that for really old dinosaur stuff...

It would be.

Ironically, it's probably cheaper to learn here and then get a job in Australia.
