    Oh hot roads are no joke when barefoot. I actually prefer wearing shoes when out and about so I'm on that ball like white on rice.

    People don't even realise that when you take your dog for a walk the poor bastard is probably cooking his socks off.

    I'm a barefoot kinda guy. I'd wager the soles of my feet could handle walking on lava

    Friend of ours used to run Trawlers off Brisbane. It wasn't unheard of them to trawl up a box of WW2 rifles/guns dumped in the sea at the end of the war. I think he said they did it twice. They never got to keep them though!
