On Australia Day

Beware of Captain Bogan, the Australia Day villain. He’ll be wearing an Australian flag as a cape, wielding a beer glass as a club, and bellowing drunken racist drivel. His goal is to make Australians look backwards and unevolved.


On The Cost of Piracy

People who didn’t read Frothing Demand in 2010 cost the site $1 billion in lost revenue in 2010.


On The Melbourne Land Market

Sales down 75% through September, prices of new land releases up 15%. Melbourne land developers fail to grasp basic economics?


Theme Change

Yes, I finally got rid of the awful theme that was on here before. This one isn’t much better, but it doesn’t make me want to puke, and will do until I can afford to hire a designer to overhaul my sites.


On Religion

When someone asks you if you’re a god, you say “Yes!”


On Australian Natural Disasters

Drought, bush fires, floods, dust storms – if we get attacked by a giant lizard, that will confirm my suspicion that we all live in Sim City.


On Leftovers

Nothing good comes from reheating pasta.
