Tossed a coin whether to post this here or in the nightmare thread. A world in which national boundaries no longer exist, in which all people can move from one country to another as easily as we Australians move from New South Wales to Queensland. A world without passports or visas or immigration qu...

They are most closely related to the terns (family Sternidae), and more distantly to the waders, auks and skimmers. http://www.japansurf.com/photos/surfersarebirds1.jpg They are in general medium to large birds, typically grey or white, often with black mark...

Didn't offer you much of a debate, did I, Ric! Got on a plane after my last post and came to America, and just took a look at the forum again ten minutes ago. I should stop talking bad about the police and other people just doing their jobs. Shit here I am using the facilities and drinking the fine ...

Sorry, didn't mean to offend or cause tension! I really am interested in what Ric has to say about our track record. Ric, just off the top of my head I'd say our involvement in America's war on Vietnam was wrong, and allowing Indonesia's invasion and occupation of East Timor was wrong, too. Would yo...

I hate surf photographers - it's too easy for them to make girls swoon. Okay, so maybe I envy them. But no, who could envy them all those hours spent sweating on the sand? I must just hate them, then. But I also fear them! Yes, I fear them, for every one of them suffers from fundamental mental deran...

The Treaty on Certain Maritime Arrangements in the Timor Sea is a rip-off we bullied East Timor into accepting.

You note-takers have inspired me. I'm going to get going on the 2006 typhoon season, which I gather started with a bit of surf in southwest Taiwan yesterday.

Nick, do you keep a journal? Since moving to Japan I've become obsessed with typhoons, and when I read...
