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.

Walkers may use feet: Rudd

Australian Prime Minister Kevin Rudd to the National Press Club today: "If some walk with their feet, that’s exactly what the system is designed to do."

Screwing up that badly is no mean feat.

Isn't our PM just amazing? He thinks so fast he joins half sentences together like a series of bullet points - that way he breathes half as much and saves the environment.

I know some Mandarin, it often sounds disjointed when read literally:

'Hao jiou bu jian'
'Long time no see'

Also Chinese conversation is full of metaphorical expressions like

'dripping water cuts stone'

'better to see once than hear much'

and my favourite:

'Da Zhi ruo yu' -

'Great Wiseman (often) looks like idiot.'

Thinking in Mandarin destroys English speaking ability.
