    I think you need to up whatever dosage you're being prescribed.

    Also: The very existence of Invercargill more than neutralises the places you've mentioned.

    I didn't flee, I accepted the inevitable that all NZers would one day become Australians.

    A Northern Territory goose hunter has survived a crocodile attack after wrestling the animal and poking it in the eyes.
    Stephen Moreen, 20, waded into the water to recover a goose he had shot when the crocodile - estimated to be about two metres long - launched out of the water and latched onto his right arm.
    The attack happened yesterday evening near the remote community of Peppimenarti, about 320 kilometres south-west of Darwin.


    "We were shooting geese, my cousin-brother told me go and get the duck there," he said.
    "I just walked. I got the first goose. The second one. [Then] the number three one, he grabbed my on my arm.
    "[The croc did] the death roll. Lucky for me when went underwater I saw him and poked his eye. He let go. Once he let go he ran for the bank.
    "My cousin-brother shot him."

    He said he was not in pain because he had been "a little bit tipsy" when the crocodile attacked.

    That's how the NT rolls. Who needs statehood, how many people from a 'state' can claim to have had one on one contact with a crocodile?

    Oh yeah, I forgot about those guys. Here, Let me help you out. That's a beautiful croc (I said 'croc'), and it would have been great to see from the safety of the beach, not so much up close.

    We were crabbing off the Hinchinbrook channel. My mate discoverd our pot was high and dry on the mud (low tide). So i said "we will come back", he goes "nah", dives in and swims over, climbs up the mud, grabs it and then swims back.

    Did I mention we had just seen a croc slide.

    Its like bears and cougars, once you see enough of them you become nochalant.
