you trusted people with your dvds? if i knew someone wanted to get into the show, i'd tell them to use netflix or maaaaybe i'd invite them over to watch it.

let's just say i've had too many experiences with "are you done with my stuff yet? it's been two months" "uhhh....i don't know where your cd is now..."

I don't know how Australia can pass itself off as a first world country when people live like that, but it does a damn good job of making the entire problem invisible to almost everyone.

And for the benefit of everyone not familiar with the Aussie situation, Aborigines were only counted as people in the census from 1967. I still cannot get over that during my parents' lifetime, Aborigines were considered not even worthy of being counted in the census.

I loan out a lot of movies and such. I'd not loan it out to people I do not trust to watch it sooner than later. If I loan it, it likely means I'm not in a rush to re-watch it, so if I like them, and they do not get to it immediately, no big deal.

Next time we reach the end of a thread and you're around, I promise we'll go there (unless the next thread is #100, in which case we're going to Vaduz).

Maybe I have a few promotional ideas up my sleeve. I learned everything I know from my mentor Paul McGuine$$

It's the beauty of having a whole desert to hide them in.

It's your friends. One of my friends has had my Father Ted DVDs and my ZooTV DVD for nearly a year and i'm not worried at all.

I'm sure the thread will be a rousing failure

Fuckin' cattle and sheep were viewed as more important than the Aborigines!

As much as John Howard would like to present this place as the "lucky country" and blast anybody who says otherwise as having a "black armband" view of history (you have no idea how mad that label makes me), Australia has one of the most sordid and disgusting histories of any Western country. For the last 200 years, this has been anything but the lucky country for its own bloody native inhabitants.
