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.

It would be funny except it's not: Part two

From the 2008 Victorian bushfire inquiry:

Mr Packham: When the Western Australians were burning 20-25 per cent of their prime forest areas...they were fireproof. They had no fires at all...we are thoroughly of the conclusion that it is the best practice in the world...
Mr Walsh: David, I found your comments about Western Australia interesting. When we sought a travel look at other jurisdictions of fire control, we were told that we were the best in the world by the presiding officers, and there was no need for us to go outside this state.
