  1. I don't know any Aussie who drinks Fosters, calls his mates cobber or who is called Bruce. Kenny
  2. You know you're Australian if.... You know the meaning of 'girt' You believe that stubbies can either be worn or drunk You think it is normal to have a Prime Minister called Kevin You waddle when you walk due to the 53 expired petrol discount vouchers stuffed in your wallet or purse You've made a bong out of your garden hose rather than use it for something illegal such as watering the garden When you hear that an American 'roots for his team' you wonder how often and with whom You understand that the phrase 'a group of women wearing black thongs' refers to footwear and may be less alluring than it sounds You pronounce Melbourne as 'Mel-bin' You pronounce Penrith as 'Pen-riff' You believe the 'L' in the word ' Australia ' is optional You can translate: 'Dazza and Shazza played Acca Dacca on the way to Maccas' You believe it makes perfect sense for a nation to decorate its highways with large fibreglass bananas, prawns and sheep You call your best friend 'a total bastard' but someone you really, truly despise is just 'a bit of a bastard' You think 'Woolloomooloo' is a perfectly reasonable name for a place You believe is makes sense for a country to have a $1 coin that's twice as big as its $2 coin You understand that 'Wagga Wagga' can be abbreviated to 'Wagga' but 'Woy Woy' can't be called 'Woy' You believe that cooked-down axlegrease makes a good breakfast spread You believe all famous Kiwis are actually Australian, until they stuff up, at which point they again become Kiwis You know, whatever the tourist books say, that no one says 'cobber' You know that certain words must, by law, be shouted out during any rendition of the Angels' song 'Am I Ever Gonna See Your Face Again' You believe, as an article of faith, that the confectionery known as the Wagon Wheel has become smaller with every passing year You still don't get why the 'Labor' in 'Australian Labor Party' is not spelt with a 'U You wear ugh boots outside the house You believe that the more you shorten someone's name the more you like them Whatever your linguistic skills, you find yourself able to order takeaway fluently in every Asian language You understand that 'excuse me' can sound rude, while 'scuse me' is always polite You know what it's like to swallow a fly, on occasions via your nose You understand that 'you' has a plural and that it's 'youse' You know it's not summer until the steering wheel is too hot to handle You biggest family argument over the summer concerned the rules of beach cricket You shake your head in horror when companies try to market what they call 'Anzac cookies' You still think of Kylie as 'that girl off Neighbours' When returning home from overseas, you expect to be brutally strip-searched by Customs - just in case you're trying to sneak in fruit You believe the phrase 'smart casual' refers to a pair of black tracky-daks, suitably laundered You understand that all train timetables are works of fiction When working at a bar, you understand male customers will feel the need to offer an excuse whenever they order low-alcohol beer You get choked up with emotion by the first verse of the national anthem and then have trouble remembering the second You find yourself ignorant of nearly all the facts deemed essential in the government's new test for migrants. You will immediately forward this list to other Australians, here and overseas, realizing that only they will understand!!
  3. Cebu Pacific just dropped a promo into my mail box. $AU120 Sydney to Manila, all in, no more to pay. I just booked a Cebu ~ Camiguin ticket with them @ 4,029 pesos. Doesn't make a lot of sense. KonC
  4. I'm thinking some people have way too much spare time on their hands. KonC
  5. A few weeks back I decided to buy a Samsung as I'd heard good things about them. Worse decision I've ever made. Just not a good phone. Nothing outstandingly bad, just in general not good. KonC
  6. We just recently installed the Globe 1299 LTE deal which gives a speed of 10mps (hahaha, more like 3mps) and a volume cap of 50GB Previously we relied on a Smart Pocket which we loaded with 1GB data every 2 or 3 days So, we were using, at most, 1GB per day. This LTE setup is recording almost 10 times that. ( 2GB data used between 9:00am and 12:00 noon today) We're up to 31GB on the 7th of the month already. Has anyone had any problems with LTE deals? KonC
  7. Are you kidding? I've entered the Philippines something like a dozen times on several airlines and I have ALWAYS been asked for my onward flight printout when I check in. KonC.
  8. And make sure you get "talcum powder" Some baby powders are corn starch. Just a coating like steam on glass will keep them away. They just won't walk on it. KonC
  9. Is that wireless as in LTE? Do you have a web address I could look at details? KonC
  10. Thanks for that Woolf, not on the back but printed in tiny little letters under the base. You'd think this info would be given you when the unit was installed. KonC
  11. I had a PLDT telephone line type hookup in Cebu (Mabolo) and like several girls I have known, when it was good it was very good but when it was bad it was Fing awful. I complained several times about being continually disconnected for a minute or so and was eventually presented with a printout of my connection. On one particular 24 hour day I was disconnected 48 times for 2 seconds to 4 minutes. Their answer, "we give no guarantee regarding continuity of service" Whatever service you sign up for, expect the worst and you won't be disappointed. KonC
  12. Well we signed up for an extra 30GB and received an email "Thank you etc...a service representative will contact you etc...." That was on the 13th and so far despite three emails to the "service" department, NOTHING. We have Internet slower than a 300 baud dial up. I was successful following your advice to log into the modem but can see no Statistics tab. There is a "log in" but that takes me to "What's your user name" and "password". AFASK we were never given a "user name" or "password". KonC
  13. I recently read of a trial done on valium, from memory it took place in America. What they did was administer Valium via drip to a certain number of subjects. Long story short, the only subjects that the Valium affected were the ones told they were getting it. In a nutshell, Valium only works if you know you've taken it. Placebo? Do a google for "valium placebo" KonC
  14. Did you ever stopped to consider... If you clean your vacuum cleaner you're a vacuum cleaner cleaner? KonC
  15. Thanks Woolf, AlwaysRt set me straight. KonC
