The 2010 series was kinda late and was the first program was broadcast 
in April of this year so I guess it will eventually get here to 
Australia. But re-runs eh? I wouldn't even mind these.

It's all clear to me....."I can see clearly now, the rain is gone.......".

Ah, veemen have this instinctive knowledge. If she calls him Stephen 
then the best person to ask about this is Freud. Don't ask your wife - 
she'll only probably tell you the truth :-) .

BTW, I have never watched "Big Bang" and so I haven't a bloody clue what 
you are talking about! :-D .

Strange, isn't it? Some many years ago a friend told me the formula for 
making napalm - and I also found the prescription for it on the fledging 
internet at that time, including a great many formulae for making all 
sorts of things which go "bang in the night". All this was freely 
available at the time. But can't even go searching on the 
word "crack" without being reported to "Those Who Protect Your Way of 
Life Against Liberty, Evil, and Naughty Words!".


If nothing happens, nothing can go wrong.
