My Kids are nice - apparently!

The place to kick back, relax, post general bullshit, and grill a few on the BBQ. Whatever doesn't fit into another forum would go here. We periodically go through and move posts to the correct forum, but we do charge a case of Beer every time we have to.

Like why the hell did I ever need to learn about how a plant takes in water?

And I agree most kids are badly behaved in public, almost had a go at a parent yesterday about the behaviour of her kids (small 4 year olds running around screaming, pushing past me and my mate without saying excuse me).

I'm 20 now and I am shocked at how few manners there are compared to me and my friends :S
It's important that plants take in water Els, much like it is important that we take in water - or fluids.

Before we emigrated to OZ ... many, many moons ago .... I was English, and we learned that the Battle of Hastings was fought in 1066. Not one single job application has had this question on it ... and I want to know why!

The dogs nails are pink, there isn't a wall in our house that doesn't have some type of (what looks like) prehistoric drawing, and the first word out of the boys mouth - if you can get him to answer is NO - He's going to make a fine sysadmin!
Hi Dino,

When my daughter Becky was about 4 years old she cut the cats whiskers off and coloured all his white bits black with a texta :lol: The silly cat must have sat there and let her do it :shock:

Maby they just hate you? :D :P Nah joking, it could however be worse, I was a little sh*t at home AND school :D Although having said that I always get told I am really poilte too...

...and my friends get hit when they forget their manners :D

Hi llama,

They probably do hate me :lol: But I control the purse strings, so they are really sweet to me whenever they want something ...... as soon as they start helping without being asked, I know that they desire for me to buy them something - then I have complete control :lol:

Is Und3tak3r trying to hijack my thread :sad:

cool .. you should do well on 1vs100 or Millionaire ... but honestly you have applied for the wrong jobs if you want to use that information.. besides not much call for sussex history in OZ, better off knowing the Don's batting average, or the significance of Lillie and Marsh or just who the Emperor of Lang Park is.

and Els.. your getting way too scientific for us OZ types.. specially this OZ-Red Neck, that the sassy POM
