I assure you, Saunders, I get plenty of tail, but none of it is barbed.

Well, unless I'm feeling particularly kinky. ¬_¬

Plenty is not a rigorously defined quantity.

—Alorael, who observes that Saunders has noted that TM has a huge, barbed, poisonous tail, not that he gets any amount of huge, barbed, poisonous tail.

Fine, I guess you forced it out of me.

My tentacles need to be declawed once every few years. -_-

Won't it be painful coming from the British winter to the Australian summer?

It is always summer in Australia when it is winter in the Northern Hemisphere.

One might add, however, that there are many areas in said hemisphere (eg. Finland) where it probably is colder in summer than it is in Australia in winter.

Ouch, I can't imagine living in a place that cold. and I give hell to people living in Canada.
Though I should add that some winters in Dom Rep are actually hotter than some summers in NY.

Not all of Australia is hot. Canberra can get pretty cold. :(

Yesterday it got down below 10 degrees F. here in Northfield, Minnesota. I was sad. It's not even winter yet.

While I agree with your first point, your implication that Melbourne is somehow better confuses me.

Melbourne has more restaurants. :P

That being said, I actually prefer Canberra. It's a nice drive to Jindabyne.

IMHO, Melbourne isn't very interesting. There are a couple of mildly iteresting places, but other than that...

I'm glad its my uncle that lives there (Footscray) and not me.

EDIT: VCH, I cannot imagine it snowing at Christmas. You need a scorching hot summer day.

Lately, due to global warming I assume, December has been a relatively warm month. At least it has been in Northern B.C. Usually the end of November brings -15 to -25 degree weather. Then December warms to -15 to 5. January, February and some of March are the real winter months, especially January. -54C was the coldest last year. Take your gloves of at that temp and within a minute your hands are painfully soar.

Edit: Melbourne is the most exiting place on Earth.

Yes, I imagine it would be painful if my hands were to suddenly fly away.

As for Melbourne being the most "exiting" place on earth, I wouldn't go so far as to say that, but there are certainly a lot of people living there who want to leave.

And then there are some who can't leave, some who can't wait to get away, and some who don't leave because they have nowhere else to go.

I don't have anything against any suburbs, though. Melton is quite nice, as is Sunshine and Caroling Springs.

What about Perth? If I remember correctly, you live there, right?

Well, yes. When we compare all the cities, Perth is obviously the best. :P We have nice scenery, perfect weather ...

... which precludes any possibility of snow. So if I have to go over east, I try to go someplace and sometime that allows me to ski. Hence, Canberra or Sydney. It also helps that my brothers currently live in those cities.
