Our mission

Are you that special person who - weary from trudging the endless superhighways - just longs to camp next to a glorious oasis of the mind? Do you desire to explore new frontiers, splash in shared ideas, fill your belly with the refreshing fruits of inspiration, and bask in the gentle rays of fond reflection?

Well, you can fuck right off. This, my friends, is not that place. This place is... The ShadowLands.

Young people return to Earth corners

As previously noted, geography is not one of Australian PM Kevin Rudd's strong points. Now this from Kevin Rudd's farewell to the Pope:

"We think of the sea of flags from practically all the nations of the earth. We think of the ocean of young people who have come literally from every corner of God’s earth...."


Col. Milquetoast said...

"Today I announce that for the first time Australia will have a resident Ambassador to the Holy See in Rome...In doing so Australia will join the 69 other nations with resident Ambassadors to the Holy See."

And all the other nations breathe a sigh of relief that they will no longer be referred to as the 69ers.

How does Kevin Rudd ask his butler to fix him eggs, bacon and toast for breakfast?

"What will this working family have for breakfast? (licks lips) Working families work hard to bring home the bacon and understand that you can't make an omelet with out breaking a few eggs. Working families are deeply concerned about this bread and butter issue. (chomps some ear wax for a quick snack)"

I think you have Kev-speak pretty much down, Colonel.

Being Kev's speechwriter must be the easiest gig in the world.

but how many corners are there? I've heard there are four, but if the Earth is cubed, as shown in the picture, there could be as many as eight.

Well spotted, DD - At this stage I cannot rule out whether or not Kevin is a flat-earther.
