    Oh no with those bogans standing in the water we’ll never get the smell outta the fish!

    Given that the local intelligencia here are up to their ballbags in water, why do they bother with the rain coats?

    Lick this:

    Nearly 6-pound 'Toadzilla' found in Australia breaks the record for largest toad

    [​IMG]

    Park rangers in northern Australia found a cane toad so giant that it provoked gasps and disbelief.

    The toad, which the rangers nicknamed "Toadzilla," weighed in at what's believed to be a record-breaking 5.95 pounds — compared to an average weight of 1 pound.

    Park ranger Kylee Gray spotted the monster toad while conducting track work in Conway National Park and "couldn't believe how big and heavy it was," she said in a news release.

    The National Park Service wants humans to stop licking this toad
    The rangers believe it is a female toad, and while they don't know how old it is, "this one has been around a long time," Gray said. Cane toads can live up to 15 years in the wild.

    The rangers quickly put the toad in a container to remove it from the wild and euthanize it. Cane toads were introduced in Queensland in 1935 to control the cane beetle population, but became a damaging pest in their own right, colonizing habitats and poisoning other wildlife.

    Welcome to the NT

    (you do know the biggest crocodile in Queensland was captured by a few NT boys wearing flip flops (thongs but the US guys get all weird if you don’t say flip flops) and bought from the NT :whistling:)

    Wearing thongs?

    What were they doing?

    On the way to a wedding or a funeral?

    And they just thought "Shit! That's a big one! Let's grab it now, it'll save time later."

    There is nothing in Australia or anywhere else that is more dangerous than this . . . :) And to our female members, yes, we men deserve it.

    Only about 1/2 the population?
    She seems rather tame compared some of the sheilas I’ve had to live with and none of them were as bad as my sister Karen, who is the original Karen who is the total psychopath that all the other Karen’s aspire to be!

    My tip: is that a bloke needs to realise that a woman will always have the last word in any argument…… any subsequent words from the male is the start of a whole new argument!

    And now, apparently, picking up shiny things on the side of the road can really mess with you outside of Perth.

    Tiny radioactive capsule goes missing in Western Australia

    An urgent search is under way in Western Australia after a tiny capsule containing a radioactive substance went missing.

    The casing contains a small quantity of radioactive Caesium-137, which could cause serious illness if touched.

    It was lost between the town of Newman and the city of Perth in mid-January - a distance of roughly 1,400km (870 miles).

    The public has been warned to stay away from the capsule if they see it.

    The sites where the transportation began and ended have been searched and efforts are under way to figure out the exact route and stops that were made to narrow down the field of search.

    Anyone who sees the object is asked to call the DFES and to seek urgent medical assistance if they think they have come into contact with it.

    Uh oh, sounds like someone's moisture or density gauge fell out of the pick-up truck on the way back from a job site and broke open on the road.

    Sounds more like theft than “lost” in transit.
