Never hold your farts in! They travel up your spine, go into your brain and that's where shitty idea's come from.

Posted:Chicken, that's amazing, this is almost exactly the thread I was going to post!! We spent Thursday night sitting on the roof watching the fires come over the atop of the ridge and rage down the hill towards Mitchelton... the house still smelt of smoke yesterday...

We are a few kms away though and in no direct danger (thank heavens the wind wasn't like it was on Saturday though) I know how close the bush comes right to your back fence though, much much scarier for you!!!

We assured Mrs Kyle (Miriam) that sitting on the roof with a beer watching the bushfires was an authentic Australian cultural experience...

After much consideration, I find that the view is worth the asphyxiation.

Posted:I hope everything has cooled down! We had fires like that in Canberra a couple of years ago, there were only 3 houses left standing in my street and all the suburbs around were completely distroyed. We were lucky and only lost our garden, the fences and the front door! Twas scary at the time though, I think some people are still trying to recover.

best of luck with it all!!! hug


What if I should fall right through the centre of the Earth and come out the other side where people walk upside-down?!
