The constant battle of the loo roll August 10

You know that ad with the golden Labrador pup that brings the new roll of toilet paper after taking the empty one out?
Can someone send that dog over here to train this mob of men?!

1857 Melbourne was lit by gas.
Whoa! There was a reason castor oil was shovelled down kids gullets.
1932 The statue of Captain James Cook was unveiled in Victoria Square.
1966 A meteor, in broad daylight, merrily skipped its way across the sky from Utah to Canada and then tootled along its trajectory right back out of the Earth's atmosphere again.
1993 Hitting 6.8 on the Richter Scale a rumble in the earth hit Secretary Island with the earth moving for them in Sydney, Oz, too.

The Nylex Clock is still busted.
Yellow = New Zealand
Orange  = Canada
Green = Australian
Red = UK or other nationality
Italics, bold and coloured blue are links to further info. 
Anything outrageous is usually sarcasm and/or humour


  1. Had to google Secretary Island as I had never heard of it.

  2. And yet it name drops you all the time, Andrew :P

  3. We have the same loo roll problem here at work. Seems I'm the only one capable. Wonder what would happen if I were to quit suddenly?

  4. I shudder to think, River lol.

  5. What a grand idea -- a bath out in nature. I hope your neighbors don't live too close to you -- barbara
