Posted:Hello everyone and anyone, i've been into all the fire stuff for a little while and was wanting to meet up with some people in the melbourne area, my friend recommended i have a look here for some post on places and times n stuff, but it's all a bit of a haze so if anyone would be so kind as to put up a post of what days people meet and where, i would be humbly appreciative.

The weekend has landed, all that exists now is clubs, drugs, pubs and parties, I got 48 hours off from the world. This could be the best night of my life, I've got 73 quid in my backburner and I'm gonna wax the lot, man.THE MILKY BARS ARE ON ME!!

Posted:well, it's all in this thread somewhere.. but i can see how the haze could make it hard to find!
a bunch of folk meet each week in edinburgh gardens on wednesday night @ about 8:00 -> 8:30 onwards.. see map Here! -> oh no false alarm.. HERE it is, or is it here? (hehehe.. link humor )
anyway, it's either near the 't' or the 'E' on that map (pending argument results) and apparently it should smell like musk or cinnamon..
Also, there is a gathering in St Kilda every second saturday night, in the park next to Luna Park (opposit McDonalds).. i'm not sure which saturday is the 'second' one anymore though...
Hope to see ya' there!

--------------------
has anyone seen my sanity?? i swear i left it around here somewhere!

Sorry I was a slack ass again last night-got home from work at 8.30 and zonked out.. ...but the pub's sounding like a better option these days. Do you think anyone'd mind if we twirled on the bar?

Posted:quote:Fundamentalist Christianity - fascinating. These people actually believe that the bi.., er, the world is 12 thousand years old. Swear to God.

What the..? Based on what? I asked them.

"Well we looked at all the people in the Bible and we added 'em up all the way back to Adam and Eve, their ages - 12 thousand years."

Well how fucking scientific, okay.

I didn't know that you'd gone to so much trouble. That's good.

You believe the world's 12 thousand years old?

"That's right."

Okay I got one word to ask you, a one word question, ready?

"uh huh."



Dinosaurs.

You know the world's 12 thousand years old and dinosaurs existed, they existed in that time, you'd think it would have been mentioned in the fucking Bible at some point.

"And lo Jesus and the disciples walked to Nazareth. But the trail was blocked by a giant brontosaurus... with a splinter in his paw. And O the disciples did run a shriekin': 'What a big fucking lizard, Lord!'

But Jesus was unafraid and he took the splinter from the brontosaurus's paw and the big lizard became his friend.

And Jesus sent him to Scotland where he lived in a loch for O so many years inviting thousands of American tourists to bring their fat fucking families and their fat dollar bills.

And oh Scotland did praise the Lord. Thank you Lord, thank you Lord. Thank you Lord."



Get this, I actually asked one of these guys, OK, Dinosaurs fossils - how does that fit into you scheme of life? Let me sit down and strap in.

He said, "Dinosaur fossils? God put those there to test our faith."

Thank God I'm strapped in right now here man.

I think God put you here to test my faith, Dude.

You believe that?

"uh huh."

Does that trouble anyone here? The idea that God.. might be.. fuckin' with our heads? I have trouble sleeping with that knowledge. Some prankster God running around:

"Hu hu ho. We will see who believes in me now, ha ha."

[mimes God burying fossils]

"I am God, I am a prankster."

"I am killing Me."
after 8:30ish,
who's twirling tonight?

Within each of us is the power to change the world; all we have to do is let it out. Of course... some of us should leave it right where it is.
