Some of the general rounds look far too fucking hard, and obviously the race-against-the-clock-and-the-buzzer aspect makes it so much more tense than Millionaire.

But doing something like New Zealand railways or U2 setlists would be sweet ...

I didn't think it was very hard to get into commercial aviation? OR have you no interest in that?

Have fun with that.

Meanwhile, Melbourne weather remains as boring as ever.

It's not too hard, I understand.

I'm not really interested in getting into the Air Force. I'm opposed to the motivation required and being yelled at by people.

Considering I was disappointed with the storm just gone (from observing it, not from sitting in it), it would be nice to get a real nasty storm.

The perfect answer: He should understand you being uncomfortable about it and accept that.

The more likely answer: He'll be upset for a while, but will likely get over it eventually/find someone else to do it.

The very idea is enough to make me nauseous.
