    i see dead people

    never really watched benson, but absolutely loved the show it spun off from, "soap" that was fantastic

    i see dead people

    yep, parap cimema was 45 cents in the open and 50c under the metal roof interesting when it pissed down in the wet, and the front half of the audience would leave if it persisted, and rain would stream down the screen (but still perfectly watchable from up the back) the star theatre in town was even more grandiose, with an upstairs bit as well i remember, but the front section was still open to the elements and last but not least, the drive in, which as i recall was another paspaley family enterprise (apart from pearls over in the northwest) tv was launched in august 1971 - we got there in late 1967 from memory, and left at the end of '71, for adelaide

    What's on your mind?

    understatement of the thread

    i see dead people

    the movie was many shades darker than the tv series it spawned (and very funny for it) i saw the movie when i would have been 11 i reckon, and it probably had a profound effect on me choosing a non-surgical pathway those were the days; no tv in darwin and so you went to the pictures every weekend to a double bill (while parents had the night off from you) and saw anything they played : including but not limited to - the graduate, midnight cowboy, count yorga vampire, the virgin soldiers, blowup, every early james bond movie no wonder i am as strange as i am

    +1 to your choice our one here (admittedly rarely used as cooling, but as reverse cycle heating in the winter) has been the gun 4 years in and i finally decided to clean the filter - which looked like a fuzzy felt set, but it worked anyway, though the air flow is bow crazy good

    What Did You Watch Lately ?

    the wings supply lift or it won't fly the angle of attack is quite small i had a much heavier 3s version that was also a flat plate wing, and they do quite well... 3d is not my thing ; i'm mostly a glider guy

    it's flying all right; they have variable pitch prop that can thus reverse thrust

    What a joke

    if history teaches us anything, it''s that the chosen people can hold a grudge declaring someone as the worst anti-semite of the year for previous attendance (which i agree is in appalling taste) would seem to be possibly not quite as anti-semitic as shooting jews yourself, but hey! what do us gentiles know ? i get that making an example of a high profile politician is more striking to make your point about "influencial party belief" when did jerry do that deed ? if it wasn't this year then they are making cheap political capital, and i would wonder what's in it for their own causes

    What a joke

    instead of voting for an unattractive individual who upholds some of my values, i'll vote for someone different, who has unattractive principles that'll teach me... i mean, them

    Mindless ramblings

    yeah, darwin heat is just nasty without refrigerative aircon adelaide in summer is brutal, but evaporative cooling is very effective (pity about having water i guess) sydney is great (presently shitty air aside); our house is well placed on a hill with passive airflow, but when it's shut up, the downstairs stays cool even on fiercely hot days, and the westerly neighbours throw shadow on us beautifully from late afternoon all summer (though hardly at all in winter) melbourne is.... melbourne
