  1. For a while now I have been getting the distinct impression you mob thing I talk funny. I mean dunno what ya issue is I speak perfect English. The Brits speak English, the Canadians speak English, the Americans speak English, the Scott's speak English and the Dutch, Portugese, Mexicans, Indians all speak English.... but it seems we are at times speaking in dialects all our own, well I am defo. So here is a little activity to build a translator service... I mean I bet there are dialect differences in your own countries let alone across boarders. SO I will post up 3 picks and we will say what we call them. Will let it run for a while then we will add 4, 5, 6....etc. Everyone welcome to add them at any time... just keep the numbers going .... 1........ 2............... 3...................
  2. So .... this is a big issue in our house... with 4 people, 1 who doesn't give a brass razoo as long as there is dunny paper... one who is adamant the paper should go over the roll and 2 who believe in having it go under..... so the one who doesn't really give a sh1t tends to side with the odd man out... well woman... on gender lines... its not really import, such a first world dilema but should the toilet paper go over or under (and would you change the way the roll goes in someone elses house if they had it "wrong"). So vote how you want but I would love to hear why you think the way you do... and just thing... you may change the mind of those like me who really don't care. In case you are thinking... what the hell is the crazy woman on about now:

    Bloody Summer Storms...

    OK so I know Aussies are super competitive about the weirdest shit... I mean what other nature on earth would be proud to say "yeah well we have 9 of the 10 deadliest snakes"..... I think its essentially because we have an identity crisis as a nation and have a national inferiority and confidence problem but that's a whole different post.... so anyway... Aussies like to win shit... doesn't matter if its our PM can skull a beer quicker than yours or the 4 x 100 freestyle relay at the Olympics... we like to compete, we like to win.... and Victorians are the worst and Melbournians are like the death con 5 of competativeness... we like to win more than any other state... we really like to beat Sydney and Adelaide, and Perth, and Tassie and Qld.... I mean Victoria and Melbourne are the best... omg see what I mean, its probably just a little big man thing... cos geographically we are the smallest... hmmm again another post... anywho..... Melbourne get ya shit together... Just cos QLD had bush fires.... we had to have bush fires.... just cos Sydney had flash floods... we had to have flash floods.. ya know what... SOME competitions .... really not worth winning..... and as for the fricking nob heads on roads when there is a meter of the wet stuff flowing through an intersection... why?, why the fruck do you think your shit heap, tin can of a midget car can safely make it through water so deep the frickin trucks wont try it.... and Melbourne.... you wanna have flash floods bigger and more destructive than Sydney??? Don't frickin do it at 5pm on a frickin Friday night 2 weekends out from Chrissy.... cos.... CHAOS!!!!!!!!! So yes I had to cross Melbourne, through the floods, to get to the work Chrissy party... a 40min trip in peak hour (20min when not) took me just over 1.5 hours.... BUT..... I frickin beat most of the people who left 30mins before me (see crazy competitive... its just weird)... by more than 30mins.... why?????.....maybe my youth wasn't so misspent.... so while the thought of being drenched in gutter water now makes me cringe and shudder..... back in the day, when we ruled the streets on our BMX bikes we made it our mission to know all the best flash flood sites....as a grow'ed up this meant I could get in my car start driving where I had to go realise it was flooding fast and know how to get from A-B without dealing with flood waters.... for the most part.... and cos they are not standard roads all those morons who rely on GPS instead of proper paper maps (cos I had to check a couple of roads hadn't been turned into dead ends) got sent through the floods and I cruised to party without flooding the car or getting stuck in snarls. Oh and all you suckers who laugh at me for refusing to go to the underground train stations... hahahahahaha sucked in they locked you down there. Melbourne last night:

About us

QuitTrain®, a quit smoking support community, was created by former smokers who have a deep desire to help people quit smoking and to help keep those quits intact.  This place should be a safe haven to escape the daily grind and focus on protecting our quits.  We don't believe that there is a "one size fits all" approach when it comes to quitting smoking.  Each of us has our own unique set of circumstances which contributes to how we go about quitting and more importantly, how we keep our quits.
