That's cool. I think it is great that sports are becoming more international. There is a down-side though - big news here when an Australian baseball player was killed in Oklahoma.

Basketball is a minor sport here but growing; Aussies will take part in practically any sport. My little suburb even has a baseball team.

We are also trying to recruit US basketball players for Australian Rules Football. Big strong blokes with good hands make good ruckmen. And the new generation who can run fast as well are changing the sport.

I heard that no human is ever more than 6 feet away from a spider.....ever!  Don't know if that is true or not, heard it on an episode of Law and Order SVU.{#Lol}

I saw a demo at a wildlife centre in Alice Springs (the Palm Springs of Australia?) so I'm sure there are options for that. I didn't think you could hunt though.

I had to look up Lake Eyre, it's a salt flat like Bonneville... I know Bonneville area has the same sort of unforgiving muck under the hard crust.

But yeah the wings. Seems like they would have thought of that, or hung it backwards or something... 

 
Lake Eyre last filled in 2011 so I can imagine it was still wet underneath. Apparently birds flock in from hundreds of miles away to breed when it has water.

There is a Lake Eyre Yacht Club: At this stage there is about a 30% chance of a regatta in 2015.  Even if there is a wind and with the shallow bottom, they apparently don't get much in the way of waves because the salinity makes the water pretty viscous.

Bogged plane at Lake Eyre a monument to bad day in the outback



Pro tip: remove wings before trying to sling a plane beneath a helicopter. Not the first time this scenario has played out.

Australia put cigarettes in standardized packs with graphic labels — and they’re working

As a nonsmoker (my mother claimed none of her kids smoked as a response to all the cigarette ash dropped in our eyes while we were nursing), my only problem is that it is pretty gross to have to look at the packs left around by the smokers.


 
This is the thread you're looking for.

Worth a repost over there.  Gave me the willies.  Could be what it takes to get me to finally get there and hang em up.

The wife finally quit after her back surgery in July.
