This housemate isn't a Beatles fan as such, I think it's just the ripping-offness that she objected to. She didn't buy the standard explanation either


And didn't Bono have some role in that Beatles movie ...?

Yeah, I wasn't entirely taking the piss... there's a reason I always fill up on Tuesdays, even though the tank's usually only half empty.

Gawd, I'd forgotten about that! She was going to come and see that with another friend and I... Dunno what she would have thought of that.

Good dammit, see Shepparton's fuel prices don't go up and down at all, they just drop and rise at random.

Wow. I dunno what's worse, predictable but blatantly rip-off pricing tactics, or completely unpredictable but possibly more honest prices...?

It's worth a look, when you get the chance. Bono bits aside!

Public transport for the win. Being legally blind and getting FREE public transport for the SuperWin.

And I think it's safe to say Bono loves his Beatles!

(I have a half-written U2gigs article analysing snippet choices ... I think he's snippeted something like 50-60 Beatles songs, more than twice that of any other artist.)

IT'S ALL A CONSPIRACY TO GET YOU INTO MICHAEL BOLTON!

Actually, on another forum, this guy once posted a GREAT Michael Bolton concert story. His then girlfriend, now wife, wanted to go to a Michael Bolton concert, so being a good boyfriend, he went along as well. After suffering through about half the show and wanting to die, he couldn't take any more. Michael Bolton introduced one song with "this is a song about ... love", and so the guy just yelled out "THEY ALL ARE!"

Safe to say he didn't get any that night. Every woman in earshot gave him the worst death glares, but all the other boyfriends and husbands who'd been dragged along shot him looks of admiration.
