I know what we need to do to get you playing the bass: book a gig for Phail.

And I bet you'll still be here in half an hour.

But the Big Pineapple sucks. It's wildly overpriced and all of my family found it a really dull place.
I think it must have been that one, cos we went to the Big Pineapple too...

When we hit the Big Pineapple in the late nineties, it was almost farcical. The food was poorly prepared and very expensive, and some of the attractions were a joke. There was some boat thing that was meant to provide automated commentary as you passed various items of interest, but all the boats were muddled up, so we'd get part of what was meant for us, overlaid with part of what was meant for the boat following us or whatever. Nobody had a good time and we were glad to go home!

Nope. And the Toowoomba Pasta has SEAFOOD in it.

I told our waiter they should get some 'roo or emu on the menu... and then I told him that we say "mushies" if we want to abbreviate "mushrooms", rather than "shrooms"... he thought we were as amusing as we thought that place was, I'm sure.

I'll see if I can remember to bring the menu on Friday, or some other day...

Toowoomba ... seafood?! I should tell that to my friend who goes to uni in Toowoomba. Good heavens, would it be that hard to choose a coastal town like Mooloolaba?

Haha, they abbreviate it as "shrooms"? That's too funny. And it's just a bit farcical that they don't actually have kangaroo or emu on the menu. I suppose it's meant to be gimmicky and all, but I can't say I'd find it hard to get some 'roo or emu here, so it shouldn't be THAT hard for them either.

Though I suppose your average American might think "OH NO KANGAROO I CAN'T EAT THAT! Aren't they endangered?" No. They're tasty.

Oh, shit, I think I've missed the start of the broadcast.

Goddamnit, I need to go to bed soon too.

Well, that particular lava flow was from some time in the 70s, I think, and is an example of a low-viscosity pahoehoe type of basalt....

This, to compare, is an example of a roughly contemporaneous a'a (high viscosity) flow...


And I never expected this... apparently (relatively) new lava can have these beautiful iridescent colours in the vesicles...

Your signature is still not acceptable. If you want to continue to mock other posters this way, your signature will be suspended.

Wouldn't that be an incentive to NOT practice, if we really want to phail?

And how much?

I said play, not practice.

Haha, it seems I've just about won on the half hour bet. Should've specified a dollar figure.

True....

I went to an American themed restaurant in this little English town, and a Australian themed one in Hawaii...
