Hi all,

I am looking for a good brand of sandpaper, I wondered if any of our Australian contributors might be able to help...  *whistle*

Oakley always used to be the preferred brand of sandpaper.

grit your teeth and rub away - be careful tho, it can make grown men cry.

Oxide paper is far better than any of the 'sand sprinkled onto gluey paper' stuff.

This sort of thing:

We'll take a long time to live this one down! but I do like the angle grinder idea *shh* but a bit hard to hide down the front of your pants *work*  ;)

The moral of the story is; be careful what you rub your balls with, and don't let anyone see you doing it!

Okay, what type of weirdness is going on down there with the Sandpaper thing?

 We Americans are too busy wincing at the things agent Orange says everyday. World news is kind of blotted out by his rotund head. *sad2*

Ah yes, the subtleties of cricket are rather lost in some of the old colonies. Still, they do a pretty fair game of rounders.

Ha, cheating has been going on since Eve bit the apple! Every sport, every day.
My grandad said " you don't get into trouble for doing the wrong thing, you get in trouble for getting caught".

got to admit he has great delivery and the pursed lips pious look does add something, back here in the old country we've developed a media to tell the lies and do the dirty work  *smile*
